Summary

Running Back Rank: #30All Players: #78
Tate didn't build on his huge season from the previous year, rushing for just 279 yards. He did miss some time because of a hamstring injury but wasn't a huge factor in the offense even when healthy with Arian Foster carrying much of the load. Tate had double-digit carries just two times and had more than 50 yards just once. Tate remains a valuable backup, though. He can do well as a starter and seems to have the makeup to be a solid starter in the league. Remember, he ran for nearly 1,000 yards in a reserve role the previous year. Tate is a good fit for the Texans' offense. 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.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Tate is a must handcuff for Foster owners but his value outside of that isn't great. He took a step backwards last season, failing to do much with his limited touches. He should get more work this year but even with that said, don't expect huge numbers. He can get 600 or so total yards and a few scores.

Houston Texans impending free agent RB Ben Tate said he is ready to become an elite running back for his next team. 'I think I can bring you an elite running back,' Tate said. 'I've learned a lot being behind Arian. Definitely, when I'm healthy I think I'm an elite running back in this league, and I feel like I can show my abilities and my numbers and my play will speak for itself, and guys will be able to see that I am a guy who is a top-five running back in this league, which I believe once I get out there and get to show that on a consistent basis. 'That's something I'm more excited for and something that I'm working hard this offseason just to prove my worth, that I am that person or that player that I think I am.'
Fantasy Impact: Tate is going to get his chance to start somewhere in the NFL in 2014.
