Fantasy Impact:

This result was expected, even though Tate claims that he never failed a drug test and actually reported his taking of an illegal substance by accident to the league. The league has a zero-tolerance policy for performance-enhancing substances, and Tate will now miss the first four weeks of the regular season. He will be eligible to return before the team's Week 5 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
