Fantasy Impact:

Bates emerged for the Commanders after starter Logan Thomas suffered a torn ACL towards the end of last season. Now entering his second season, Bates may receive a heavy workload early in the year if Logan Thomas is still recovering from his injury. Wentz has a history of targeting tight ends, but Bates is probably better left on the wavier wire for the time being.
