Summary

Running Back Rank: #18All Players: #34
Tate didn't have a career season last year but played very well before missing the last few games because of a rib injury. Tate finished the year with more than 900 total yards. He got plenty of starts because of injury to Arian Foster. Tate also set career highs in the passing game, catching 34 passes. He proved he could be a capable option out of the backfield. Tate has more than 900 total yards two of three seasons. He is ready for a bigger role, taking over as the No. 1 back for the Browns. He is a one-cut runner that hits the hole in a hurry and can get to the next level with little effort. Tate also has good size, giving him the ability to run over would-be tacklers. And as mentioned, Tate is an improved pass catcher, which helps his chances to be a three-down back.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Tate has good potential in a starting role. He can be a top fantasy back if all goes well. Tate isn't a sure thing by any means but you have to love his upside. We think he can get 1,400 total yards and nine or so touchdowns. Consider him a low-end No. 1 back or top No. 2 as the workhorse back for the Browns.

comments about Ben Tate

Notes

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate and Terrance West will compete for the starting tailback job during training camp and the preseason, and it's a battle head coach Mike Pettine is looking forward to. 'And the best competition might be Ben Tate and our guy (Terrance West) from Towson, who I really like,' Pettine said Tuesday, July 22.
Fantasy Impact: Nothing is certain with this job right now. It really is up in the air. We'll know more in a few weeks.

Cleveland Browns SS Donte Whitner said the team's offense will be based on running the football heavily. 'I'm going to stand back and let this competition develop and may the best man win, but our offense is gonna be predicated on running the football and being physical in the run game also,' Whitner told SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'You can't just ask both quarterbacks to stand back there and throw the ball 35, 40 times a game.'
Fantasy Impact: It makes sense for the Browns to take this approach with the passing game lacking quality options.

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate is not worried about a possible batting for playing time with RB Terrance West. 'Truthfully, I don't look at it like that,' Tate said. 'You guys may see it like that, but there's nobody in that room that scares me. I'm just honest.' Tate expects to have a breakout year in the team's zone-blocking scheme under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West said he expects to compete with RB Ben Tate for the starting running back job during training camp. 'That's what I'm here to do,' West said. 'I want to play. I want to be the starter, and I'm going to practice like a starter.'
Fantasy Impact: Tate needs to get healthy if he hopes to hold off the rookie.

The Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent RB Ben Tate (Texans) to a two-year deal worth $7 million.
Fantasy Impact: Tate should be the starting back for the Browns this coming season. He is a good signing for the team but his numbers might not be off the charts behind a below-average offensive line.
