Depth Chart
Stoutly built at 5'9'', 225 lbs. with quick feet and good vision, Terrance West has a chance to carve out a large role in the Cleveland running game. Capable of heavy workloads, the Atlantic 10 prospect from Towson also has a nose for the end zone with 84, yes 84 touchdowns in three college seasons. As he continues to develop as a pass catcher (only 36 career college receptions) expect West to get the bulk of his work inside the 20. West is going to challenge Tate for playtime as soon as the opening weekend and is a must-handcuff for anyone drafting Tate as a starter. Should Tate miss time during the season, West could quickly pick up RB2 value, but for now, add West as a high-upside RB3 and hope he sees the field early and often.

Comment: You'll see a lot of Tate and West on the ground in Cleveland this season as the Browns passing game struggles without Josh Gordon.

News From The Past 90 Days
Browns rolling with two rookie RBs behind Tate
Isaiah Crowell makes team as third running back
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 30, 10:15 am

Cleveland Browns
The Browns have cut running back Chris Ogbonnaya, a league source tells cleveland.com. With tailback Dion Lewis being cut earlier in the day, that leaves rookie running back Isaiah Crowell as the third running back for now. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: It's not out of the question that the Browns would bring in another veteran running back, but for now Terrance West and Crowell are the immediate backups to Ben Tate. Crowell rumbled for 102 yards and a TD on the 13 carries Thursday night, locking himself into a roster spot.


Browns liking the look of rookie RBs
West and Crowell showing well early
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 28, 5:00 pm

Cleveland Browns
Terrance West has shown up to camp and played his butt off, showed off some real athleticism for a man his size and seems to bring extra energy to every play he's in. No matter what happens with Josh Gordon and the quarterbacks, the Browns are built to play good defense and to keep that defense rested, and this offensive line might be pretty good, too. The team also thinks it has a keeper in undrafted Isaiah Crowell. (Fox Sports)

FFToday's Take: West has been generating plenty of buzz throughout the offseason and needs to be considered at least the equal of Ben Tate in fantasy at this point as a perfect fit in OC Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking run scheme. Crowell is arguably the most talented runner of the bunch and a former five-star recruit. West is a steal at his late seventh-round ADP, while Crowell could decide fantasy titles late in the season if both Tate and West go down.


Browns starting RB job up for grabs?
Rookie West could push Tate during training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 18, 6:00 pm

Cleveland Browns
Ben Tate enters camp as at least a slight favorite to win the starting job. Tate had every reason to assume he was a shoo-in to become the Browns’ No. 1 back because at the time there was no one approaching his talent level on the team. That dramatically changed when the Browns made Terrance West their third-round draft pick and added Isaiah Crowell as an undrafted free agent. West quickly emerged as a formidable challenger for the starting role. (ClevelandBrowns.com)

FFToday's Take: The Browns figure to be a run-heavy team this season so even if West carves out a significant role with Tate in a RBBC situation there will still be plenty of opportunities for both. If West continues to impress during training camp, Ben Tate's current ADP of mid-fifth-round will continue to slide.


Browns' coach hints at running back by committee
Tate and West should handle bulk of opportunities
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jun 28, 1:00 pm

Cleveland Browns
Key quote from Coach Mike Pettine: "I think in the AFC North, you have to be running back by committee. You'd like to have a guy that can carry most of the load, but also be able to alternate guys ... you've got to be able to get fresh legs out there." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Ben Tate is going to be the "carry the load" guy while rookie Terrance West should get the majority leftover carries. Tate has RB2 appeal but comes with moderate injury risk. Columnist Terry Pluto goes on to state that Edwin Baker appears to be next in line on the depth chart ahead of Dion Lewis.


Injury Hoyer "securely ahead of Manziel" entering camp
Tate "nicked up"; rookie West running with first team
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 12, 6:00 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns HC Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is "securely ahead' of Johnny Manziel. But Hoyer's lead is not "insurmountable''. Both quarterbacks have had their bright spots and struggles during minicamp, but Hoyer has looked more polished and decisive in his throws. In the backfield, Ben Tate and Terrance West will be competing for the starting job at running back, but Tate is not fazed by the rookie. In 11-on-11 drills, West has been getting reps with the first team along with Chris Ogbonnaya. "There’s nobody in that room that scares me. I’m just honest," Tate said Thursday. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Hoyer hasn't been allowed to take 11-on-11 reps yet, so very little can be taken from this story about the quarterback situation. As far as the running backs are concerned, beat writer Nate Ulrich tweeted Thursday that Tate was a "little nicked up". Although it probably nothing serious, it should be a reminder that West will be an awfully good handcuff for the brittle Tate in OC Kyle Shanahan's offense.
