Matthews has been dealing with a knee injury the past three weeks. He missed the team's Nov. 19 game but did play in the Bills' past two games. Matthews also missed time this year because of a fractured sternum and a broken thumb. We had Thompson, Holmes, and Tate behind Matthews on the depth chart so all three could see more reps.
CIN WR Brandon Tate - Week 8, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8: Tate vs Ravens
Despite the fact that Brandon Tate was on the field for 41 offensive snaps, we didn't see much production. Only 3 targets and 1 catch last week. You would think with A.J. Green out, Tate would be able to put up some decent stats, but it has been limited.
If Green comes back this week, Tate drops off the fantasy radar, but if he is out again, the fantasy impact is minimal. Keep him on the bench.
