Summary

Running Back Rank: #18All Players: #36
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

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) will retain the lead-back role, even after the team claimed RB Ben Tate off waivers from the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, Nov. 19, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner said Tate was brought in for insurance because both McKinnon and RB Matt Asiata (concussion) were dealing with injuries this week. McKinnon said he will be ready for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. However, Asiata's status is in doubt. "We're excited about Jerick and what he's done and I see him as our running back,' Turner said. "He's been limited in practice last week and couldn't practice (Wednesday) So you got to protect yourself, obviously with Matt not being able to practice (Wednesday) and in doubt as to whether he'll play or not.'

Minnesota Vikings RB Ben Tate gives the team much-needed depth at the running back position, with RBs Jerick McKinnon (back) and Matt Asiata (concussion) both missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. McKinnon leads the team with 484 yards and a 4.9 yards per carry average, while Asiata has six rushing touchdowns and a one receiving TD, but he has just 3.3 yards per carry.
Fantasy Impact: Tate won't get a ton of work with his new team but will help in spot duty.

Free-agent RBs Ben Tate (Browns) and LeGarrette Blount (Steelers) aren't expected to draw interest from the Denver Broncos. It is late into the season and is tough for a new running back to learn a Peyton Manning-led system.

Free-agent RB Ben Tate (Browns) may already have drawn interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers after being released by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday, Nov. 18. A Steelers staff member reportedly called a Cleveland Browns staff member asking about Tate's release.

The Cleveland Browns have waived RB Ben Tate.
Fantasy Impact: Tate wasn't happy about a lack of playing time so the Browns just released him, refusing to deal with it anymore. He might get signed by the Colts. Stay tuned.

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West will continue to be mixed and matched on a weekly basis, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Crowell had a critical lost fumble Sunday, Nov. 16, but the team kept going to him despite the miscue. 'It's something we'll look at week to week,' Pettine said. 'We're not just going to pick one. When you go in a game-plan situation you look at what gives us the best chance to win.'
