2015 Outlook
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.

News From The Past 90 Days

FF Today's Take: Absolutely devastating news for the Chiefs and all of Charles' fantasy owners. Kansas City will likely move on with some form of committee of Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, although both seem to have plenty of support within the Chiefs' front office. West's slashing style resembles Charles' while Davis is more of a pounder that has already shown he has the ability to carry the load. The team also plans on working out Pierre Thomas and Ben Tate.
