Bengals WR Auden Tate has been diagnosed with a sprained left MCL, according to ESPN'S Ben Baby. There's no timeline yet for Tate's return, but consider him unlikely to play against the Patriots this weekend. That should mean more action for WR John Ross, but he's not a fantasy option vs. New England. That could change in a Week 16 matchup against the Dolphins.

The Bengals have placed WR Auden Tate on IR with his sprained MCL. It's not a serious injury, but there are only 3 weeks left in Cincinnati's season. Tate turned in an encouraging 2nd season, currently ranking 2nd on the Bengals with 40 catches and 575 receiving yards. We'll see what the team does at the position this offseason, but Tate could be among the top 3 on the depth chart in 2020. It'll be Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Alex Erickson as the top 3 WRs for the rest of this year.

Bengals WR Auden Tate injured his knee in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Cleveland and is officially doubtful to return. That could mean more action for WR John Ross, who returned from his collarbone injury today. We'll update Tate's status when we learn more.
