Depth Chart
After a rookie season lost due to an ankle injury, the Texans 2010 second-round pick bounced back in a big way in 2011. Tate started two games and amassed an impressive 942 rushing yards and four touchdowns on just 175 carries in a backup role behind Arian Foster. Like Foster, Tate is a great fit in the Texans running scheme, capable of making one cut and then using his speed and power and get past linebackers and into the secondary. While Tate possesses enough natural ability to start for most teams, in Houston he sits behind the league’s best running back and that limits his fantasy appeal. While Tate had 188 touches last season, his usage when Foster was healthy wasn’t consistent or hefty enough (under ten touches per game) to make him a solid option as a starting fantasy running back. However, he is a decent flex option provided you are willing to live with some inconsistency with him in your starting lineup. And of course, he is an absolutely must have handcuff for Foster and a player that will needed to be taken early in drafts as the first true handcuff off the board.

Comment: One of the most valuable backup RBs in fantasy football.

News From The Past 90 Days
Browns add RB Ben Tate     -- Sat Mar 15 3:15 pm --

Two-year deal
The Browns filled the void they've had at running back since they traded Trent Richardson last season by signing former Texans running back Ben Tate on Saturday. The deal is for two years and worth about $7 million, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FF Today's Take: The Browns have basically been without a running back since they traded Trent Richardson to the Colts. Tate battled a rib injury last season but will be penciled in as the Week 1 starter with only Dion Lewis (broken leg), Edwin Baker and Fozzy Whitaker round out the Browns running back group. Tate will have RB2 fantasy upside.
