Summary

Running Back Rank: #175All Players: #844
Tate was supposed to emerge as the starting back for the Browns last season but couldn't even keep his roster spot with the team all season. Tate played in eight games and ran for 333 yards with the Browns, averaging just 3.1 yards per carry. Tate was picked up by the Vikings late in the season and had 13 carries in three games with them. Tate had a season to forget last year. He'll try to win a roster spot as a top backup this year. Tate had some great seasons with the Texans but seems to be more of a product of their system. Tate 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. Tate is just a so-so pass catcher out of the backfield.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Tate had his chance to shine last season but couldn't, making him a bust for fantasy teams. Don't expect a turnaround this season. He might be worth a roster spot as a No. 4 or 5 back but that is about it. He could get a few hundred total yards.

Minnesota Vikings RB Ben Tate will be active Sunday, Nov. 23, and have a role in Week 12. RB Matt Asiata will be inactive.
Fantasy Impact: Tate isn't going to be worth using for fantasy teams just yet but could have some value down the road if he starts to perform.

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.'
