Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Auden Tate (calf) and Mike Thomas (illness) missed practice all week and are doubtful to suit up in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Rookie running back Chris Evans (ankle) also missed practice all week and is doubtful. Tate and Thomas have been scarcely used in 2021 as No. 4 receiving options behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins, so they weren't exactly on the fantasy radar to begin with. With both Tate and Thomas likely out Sunday, Stanley Morgan should see a slight uptick in snaps played. Evans has just nine carries for 41 yards rushing and has caught 10 of his 11 targets for 127 yards and one touchdown as the No. 3 RB behind Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Auden Tate (calf) and Mike Thomas (illness) both missed practice again on Thursday. Tate has been out since Week 7 and had been dealing with a thigh injury before the calf issue cropped up. In any event, he appears unlikely to return in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Thomas could have a chance to play Sunday if he returns to practice on Friday. If neither Tate nor Thomas can play this weekend, Stanley Morgan would serve as the No. 4 receiver behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. Tate has just three catches for 39 yards in a touchdown in seven games this year, while Thomas has five receptions for 52 scoreless yards in eight contests.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Auden Tate (calf) and Mike Thomas (illness) both missed practice on Wednesday. Tate and Thomas have been battling for snaps as the No. 4 receiver behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins all season long, but Tate hasn't been available since Week 7. He's caught three of four targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in seven games, while Thomas has five receptions for 52 yards on eight targets in eight games. Neither has been fantasy relevant in this crowded receiving corps. If both Tate and Thomas are unavailable in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers, Stanley Morgan would be Cincy's No. 4 wideout.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) has officially been ruled out for the Week 12 contest against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Tate was doubtful heading into Sunday's game, so it's no surprise that he'll miss yet another game. The 24-year-old has not seen action since Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens and hasn't been on the fantasy radar at all in 2021 while working as the fourth wideout behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins in a loaded Cincy receiving corps. With Tate out again, Mike Thomas and Stanley Morgan will fight for snaps as the No. 4 pass-catcher against Pittsburgh.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful to play in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Tate is inactive on Sunday, it will be his fourth straight missed game. The 24-year-old just hasn't been relevant at all in 2021 in a crowded receiver corps that also includes rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. Tate has caught only three of four targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in seven games played in 2021. Mike Thomas and Stanley Morgan will battle for scraps as the team's fourth wideout if Tate is on the sidelines again this weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) remained sidelined at practice on Wednesday after missing the Week 11 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. In any event, Tate doesn't really carry any fantasy value as the No. 4 receiver behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins when he's healthy on game day. Mike Thomas and Stanley Morgan could see more offensive snaps this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers if Tate misses another game, but it won't amount to much. In seven games in 2021, Tate has been targeted only four times and has caught three of those targets for 39 yards. He'll need an injury or two to those ahead of him on the depth chart in order to become attractive to fantasy managers.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) won't play in Sunday's game against the Raiders. Considering Tate has just three catches for 39 yards this season and hasn't played since Week 7, his absence doesn't really move the needle at all when it comes to fantasy. Tate should not be rostered in redraft leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) is listed as questionable for the Week 11 game against the Las Vegas Raiders despite putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We'd expect Tate to be active this Sunday, barring some sort of setback. However, the 24-year-old is too buried on a stacked receiver depth chart for Cincinnati. He has only three receptions on four targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in seven games this season, and he hasn't played more than 34% of the offensive snaps in any game since Week 3. Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Mike Thomas have all seen more playing time and targets than Tate in 2021.
Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Chris Evans (hamstring) and wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) were both limited in practice all week and are questionable for Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns. Evans missed the Week 8 loss to the New York Jets, but he's trending in the right direction to make his return and serve as the No. 3 back behind Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine. Evans is off the fantasy radar in redraft leagues as long as Mixon and Perine are both healthy. He has just four carries for 18 yards and has caught all eight of his targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in seven games. Tate also missed last week but is on track to return. Like Evans, he just isn't fantasy relevant in Cincy's crowded receiver's room. The 24-year-old has only three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown on the season.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) has been ruled out for the Week 8 game against the New York Jets on Sunday. In addition, rookie running back Chris Evans (hamstring) will miss the Halloween game this weekend. Tate has found the end zone once this season, but otherwise he has only three receptions for 39 yards on his four targets in seven games played (zero starts), so he hasn't been anywhere near the fantasy radar on this Bengals squad stacked with offensive weapons. In Tate's absence on Sunday, Mike Thomas should serve as the team's No. 4 pass-catcher behind rookie Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said he's been really impressed with wide receiver Auden Tate during offseason practices. "He sometimes gets forgotten, but he has a really unique skill set that makes him one of the best out there in terms of contested catches," Callahan said. "And he's huge. As a fourth receiver, he's been good this spring." It looks like Tate has progressed nicely from surgery to fix a torn labrum last December, and he should serve as the No. 4 wideout behind Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and rookie Ja'Marr Chase. The 24-year-old will have opportunities in this pass-heavy offense, but his targets won't be consistent enough for him to be much more than a stash candidate in deep leagues and dynasty/keeper formats.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery to fix a torn labrum on Tuesday. Tate will be out anywhere from four to six months but should be ready for training camp next summer. The 23-year-old will be on the final year of his rookie deal in 2021 after he finished this season with 14 catches for 150 yards in nine games played. The seventh-round pick in 2018 has 58 catches on 114 targets for 760 yards and only one touchdown in 28 games (12 starts) in his first three seasons in the NFL. Tate was mainly receiver depth this year, but he had a career-high 40 receptions for 575 yards and his only touchdown in 12 games last season with A.J. Green out due to injury.
The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver Auden Tate and offensive guard/center B.J. Finney on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday. The Bengals reported that they had someone test positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, but they haven't disclosed exactly who that player was. Either way, both players availability for Week 12 against the Giants is in jeopardy this weekend. Tate has only 14 receptions on 20 targets for 150 yards in eight games in his third season with Cincinnati. The 23-year-old is not a fantasy option while behind wideouts Tyler Boyd, rookie Tee Higgins and veteran A.J. Green on the receiving depth chart, especially now that rookie quarterback Joe Burrow (knee) is out for the season.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate is a healthy scratch for Thursday's Week 2 contest against the Browns. Tate played 15 snaps in Week 1 but wasn't targeted. His absence will open up more snaps as the fourth receiver for either Mike Thomas or Tee Higgins, but neither of those guys is really a fantasy option in Week 2. This may suggest a larger role moving forward for the rookie Higgins, who could end up as a viable fantasy option at some point down the line.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate continues to impress during training camp this season. ESPN's Ben Baby named Tate the "early frontrunner for offensive MVP" of camp. Tate drew praise from head coach Zac Taylor earlier in training camp in what has clearly been a productive offseason for the third-year wideout. Despite the glowing praise, Tate is still behind A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Joe Mixon, and Tee Higgins for looks in the Cincy offense this season. He is more interesting as a deep dynasty stash than he is in redraft formats.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate has impressed head coach Zac Taylor this offseason. When asked about Tate, Taylor said, "He's a total professional... He's on top of the details on special teams... he's got a great grasp for what we're trying to do on offense." Aided by several injuries to the Cincy receiving corps in 2019, Tate had a mini-breakout, catching 40 of his 80 targets for 575 yards and a touchdown. That being said, he's probably likely to settle in as the team's No. 5 receiver this season, provided A.J. Green can stay healthy and rookie Tee Higgins acclimates himself to the NFL quickly. Tate is nothing more than an end of the roster stash in extremely deep dynasty leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate (knee) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season. Tate sustained a mild MCL sprain in his left knee in the third quarter of the teams Week 14 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Damion Willis was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding roster move. Tate took advantage of all the injuries to the Bengals receiving corps this season, racking up a career-high 40 catches for 575 yards and one touchdown, and is a worthy hold in dynasty leagues heading into his third season.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate was forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Browns with an apparent knee injury. After recording his first and only catch of the game, the 22-year-old limped his way back to the locker room after initially being evaluated in the medical tent. Tate has been a semi-regular target for the team this year, logging 39 catches for 559 yards and a touchdown on 76 targets. While he wasn't a consistent source of production, he does have value in deeper leagues. Look for an update regarding his status for the Week 15 encounter with the Patriots, but if he is out, look for the recently-returned John Ross to serve as the primary beneficiary.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns with an apparent ankle injury. Tate went down awkwardly on his ankle in the third quarter after making a catch, and while he was able to walk off the field under his own power, he was soon after walking to the locker room with his gloves and helmet off. There has been no official announcement yet, but Tate looked doubtful to return at best. Before getting hurt, he made one catch for 16 yards on four targets.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate finished with four receptions for 66 yards during the win over the Jets on Sunday. Tate was targeted seven times by the returning Andy Dalton, and has now had at least six in nine games this season. Look for him to continue to serve as the No. 2 receiving option behind Tyler Boyd in Week 14 against Cleveland as long as A.J. Green (foot) stays out of the lineup.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Auden Tate (concussion) and Stanley Morgan Jr. missed their second straight practice this week on Thursday. With A.J. Green (ankle) likely to miss another game, Cincy's receiving corps is in dire straights. Expect Tyler Boyd and Alex Erickson to be the top two receivers, but they won't have much fantasy appeal with rookie Ryan Finley looking bad under center the last two games. Rookie Damion Willis would be the No. 3 wideout if both Tate and Morgan are unable to play. This is obviously a situation to avoid at all costs.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers A.J. Green (ankle) and Auden Tate (concussion) both missed practice on Wednesday. Green has yet to play this year, and at this point it would be a surprise if he plays at all in 2019. The veteran wideout has been dropped in a lot of leagues. Tate suffered a serious head injury in Week 11 and had to be carted off the field. He feels like a long shot to play in Week 12 against the Steelers. Tyler Boyd, Alex Erickson and rookies Stanley Morgan Jr. and Damion Ratley are the team's four healthy receivers, but it's hard to trust any pass-catcher on this winless team with rookie quarterback Ryan Finley struggling mightily.
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that wide receiver Auden Tate (concussion, back) is in the league's concussion protocol after leaving on a cart in Week 12 against the Raiders. Tate is also dealing with a cervical strain. He contributed four catches for 56 yards before departing, and his status is very much up in the air for Week 12 against the Steelers. Even if Tate is able to play, he's one to fade in this weak passing offense led by rookie quarterback Ryan Finley. Assuming A.J. Green (ankle) remains out, Cincy's three-wide sets could include Tyler Boyd, Alex Erickson and either rookies Damion Willis or Stanley Morgan Jr.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate led the Bengals in receiving in Week 11, catching four of his six targets for 56 yards. Tate has now topped 50 receiving yards in four of his past five games. Tate was fortunate that his line ended up decent on a day where quarterback Ryan Finley completed just 13-of-31 passes for 115 yards. No other Bengal had more than 21 receiving yards. Tate is a viable WR3 or flex option most weeks and is worth rostering in all leagues of 12 or more teams.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate looks to bounce back against the Raiders in Week 11. Tate was only targeted six times in Week 10 during the loss to the Ravens after getting 13 against the Rams in Week 8. Joe Mixon was partially to blame for Tate's lack of attention against Baltimore as he received a season-high 30 carries for 114 yards. The 22-year-old has a relatively high ceiling from week-to-week, but should only dispatched in deeper formats against Oakland on Sunday.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
