Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a sprained left medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Dec. 10. WR Damion Willis was elevated from the practice squad to replace him on the roster.
Huddle Up: Tate's emergence was probably the best thing to happen to the Bengals in an otherwise lost season. Assuming A.J. Green re-signs with the team in the offseason, Tate will probably push John Ross for the other starting outside job while Tyler Boyd remains the main slot receiver. Tate, who finishes this season with 40 catches for 575 yards and a touchdown, should be considered a solid late-round flier next summer in fantasy drafts.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee after an MRI on Monday, Dec.9, showed no structural damage, according to ESPN's Ben Baby.
Huddle Up: It most likely means he's out for Week 15 and perhaps the rest of the season. Owners can wait for further confirmation if they want, but he can be dropped in most leagues. Alex Erickson figures to see a few more snaps and targets in his absence, although it's unlikely he'll be worth using in fantasy the rest of the way.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 14 game and is considered doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see the severity of Tate's injury. Tyler Boyd is the only Bengals receivers that should be a starting option in fantasy leagues if Tate misses an extended period of time.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate finished with four receptions for a team-high 66 yards in Week 13 against the New York Jets on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Tate was able to bounce back after his one-catch performance last week against the Steelers. While his 66 yards were his most since Oct. 13 in Baltimore when he had a season-high 91 yards, he remains more of a WR6 in most fantasy leagues. He hasn't scored in seven games since Oct. 6 against Arizona.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate had one grab for 10 yards in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on three targets.
Huddle Up: Tate was coming back from a concussion and a cervical strain, so it was miraculous he was able to play at all. Still, he is only worth a look in the very deepest of fantasy formats at this point. The Bengals host the Jets in Week 13.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (concussion) was upgraded to limited practice participation Friday, Nov. 22, and is officially listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Tate was taken off on as stretcher after a scary-looking injury Sunday in Oakland, and while it was good to see his status upgrade Friday, he still looks to be on the wrong side of questionable for Week 12. Fantasy GMs will need to check Cincy's pre-game inactives list Sunday to be sure, but plan on going with another option for now.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Tate will need to pass the concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so his status for Week 12 is uncertain. He has posted at least 55 yards in four of the last five games, but fantasy players may want to look for other players because of uncertain status.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (undisclosed) hauled in four of his six targets for 56 yards - all team highs - before leaving with an undisclosed injury in Week 11 versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Tate was removed from the game on a stretcher in the fourth quarter after taking a shot to the head and/or neck area, but he tweeted a few hours later that he was "good. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll be able to make it back in time for Week 12, but he'd be a low-upside start in fantasy against the Pittsburgh Steelers - especially with Ryan Finley as his quarterback.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (undisclosed) suffered either a back or neck injury in the second half of the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was down for several moments before being placed on a stabilizing board to be carted off.
Huddle Up: It is always a scary scene when a player is taken off in such a way, but hopefully it was all due to precaution. More on Tate's status when we know it.
