Ben Tate will work out for the Lions on Tuesday

He tried out for the Cowboys in late May to no avail. He has had little interest in his services after a poor showing in 2014. He is still young, 28 in August, and the Lions may be getting desperate with Joique Bell still sidelined.

Fantasy Impact

This indeed may be a sign that Joique Bell is nowhere near 100%. Keep an eye on Ameer Abdullah, he's the best of the bunch anyway.

Cowboys working out Ben Tate

The Cowboys are working out Ben Tate. Tate has rushed for 2,363 yards on 540 carries in his four seasons with four teams, most recently with the Browns in 2014.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear what Tate's role would be, even if he is signed by the team. This was a crowded backfield already between Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams. We will need to see who makes the final 53-man roster before any conclusions can be taken from this. Tate was a promising sleeper going into the 2014 season as the favorite to be the Browns' lead back, but he was sidelined by injuries, and later, poor performance.

Ben Tate adds just 8 yards in loss

Tate had five carries for 8 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

His long run on the day was of four yards. He's looking more and more likely to be gone after the season despite being claimed off waivers from Cleveland nearly a month ago. He is simply not a No. 1 RB in the NFL.

Ben Tate used sparingly in win

Tate had just three carries for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets. His long run on the day was eight yards.

Fantasy Impact

He will likely be used more over the final three games with Jerick McKinnon (lower back) placed on season-ending injured reserve on Saturday. Matt Asiata hasn't been that impressive, so Tate could earn a role down the stretch. He isn't fantasy worthy.

Ben Tate carries 5 times for 15 yards as No. 2 RB

Tate served as the No. 2 RB behind fill-in starter Matt Asiata. Tate ended the afternoon with five carries for 15 yards as the Vikings defeated the visiting Panthers 31-13.

Fantasy Impact

Tate will likely earn more carries down the stretch as Minnesota will look to see what they have in him. But with Jerick McKinnon (lower back) likely to return, Tate could be the No. 3 RB next week against the Jets.
