Summary

Running Back Rank: #63All Players: #173
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

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana charges, according to sources. Bell will spend 15 months on probation as part of the first-offender's program and will have his driver's license suspended for 60 days. RBs Josh D. Harris and Ben Tate took over when Bell missed the team's playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed RB Ben Tate (Vikings) Tuesday, Dec. 30. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Impact: Tate was brought in as insurance. We wouldn't expect him to get much work - if any - during the game this week.

Minnesota Vikings RBs Ben Tate and Joe Banyard could receive more carries, because head coach Mike Zimmer thought RB Matt Asiata received too many carries in Week 14. Asiata received 19 of the 23 carries during the game.

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.'

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 RB Ben Tate (Browns) was claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, Nov. 19.
Fantasy Impact: The Vikings have a few injuries at running back so this move makes some sense for them, getting some insurance for the rest of the season

Free-agent RB Ben Tate (Browns) likely will not be claimed by the Miami Dolphins, but the team is not ruling out the possibility of signing him later in the season or in the offseason, according to a source.
