Fantasy Outlook 2010

Tater-Tot will be seeing some quality field action right away with the Texans.  Quarterback Matt Schaub had glowing reviews about Tate after OTAs, saying he was impressed by his speed and his attention to the playbook and everything happening around him.  Most importantly, Tate provides the power-back that the Texans desperately need.  Last year in a game against Arizona, with a minute to left and down by a touchdown, the Texans had the ball at the Cardinals 1-yard line, but couldn’t punch it in because they didn’t have a power-back.  Tate will be that guy this year for them.  He’ll mostly be utilized in the red zone, as he’ll likely be behind Steve Slaton and Arian Foster on the depth chart to start the season, but he will still have an impact.


~ The Texans ranked 30th in rushing last year, so they can only go up


~ Schaub is becoming one of the elite quarterbacks in the league, thereby opening up space for his backs... including Tate


~ Slaton is coming back from injury and Foster doesn't really excel at any one thing, so Tate could find more time than expected

Power+Speed=Score

If you’ve never heard of Ben Tate, don’t feel embarrassed.  Not many people have.  He probably had the quietest 3,000 yard career at Auburn ever.  He barely played his freshman year, rushed for 900 yards his sophomore year, only 650 junior year, but then he had a breakout 1,362 yards his senior season.  Amazingly he is fifth on Auburn’s prestigious career rushing list behind names such as Bo Jackson and Cadillac Williams and ahead of Ronnie Brown.


Yet, we’re here to talk about touchdowns, because that’s what can get you the most fantasy points, and that’s exactly what Ben Tate will be doing.  Tate scored 24 TDs overall in college - 10 of those came his senior season.  This 5’11”, 220-pound back is tough to bring down.  Just ask All-American safety Eric Berry:







He's basically a bulldog disguised as a tiger because he has speed as well.  Although he lacks creativity in the open field, his 4.43 time in the 40 at the NFL Combine ranked third best among running backs, behind Jahvid Best and C.J. Spiller.  He’s got some mad game.

 "He came in and understood his roles and responsibilities so that's very encouraging because they all can run. But at this level it's about catching the ball out of the backfield, it's pass protection, it's understanding the bigger picture and all (our running backs) do that, but I think Ben fits our mold and it's going to be exciting once they put the pads on in training camp to see what they can do."

One of the tougher situations to put a finger on, so if you have Tate on your team, you'll want to have both Steve Slaton and Arian Foster as well

Injury Report

Red

Although Tate didn't have to deal with injuries in college and had no problem taking on a full load last year at Auburn, he ended up fracturing his right fibula and tearing a few ankle ligaments in the first pre-season game of his career. The Texans placed him on Injured Reserve, so Ben's season is officially over

Ben Tate now a Brownie

Ben Tate has signed a new contract which allows him to be part of the Cleveland Browns. The contract is reportedly to be a two year deal worth $7 million. This contract is great for both sides, as the economics protect Cleveland, as they paid Tate less than what Jacksonville got for Toby Gerhart. On the flip side, this will allow Tate to showcase his skills as a primary back.

Pyro's take: The main issue here for Ben Tate is his inability to stay healthy. He has had his chance with Arian Foster going down from injury, but Tate also suffered from broken ribs, and eventually shut down. His rookie year he missed all 16 games, and four in 2012 with foot and hamstring problems. The upside is that when healthy, Tate can be explosive, and catch the ball out of the backfield. He should be counted on as an every down back..let's just hope he doesn't end up hurting his wrist signing a new lease to a home in Cleveland.

Tate close to signing with Browns

The Browns are frontrunners to land Texans free agent running back Ben Tate, according to multiple sources.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that Tate is already in Cleveland visiting with Browns, whose running game finished tied for 27th in the NFL last year. NFL Network also reported that the Browns are his most likely destination.

The Browns contemplated trading for Tate, 25, last season, but opted to wait for him to become a free agent instead.

Tate (5-11, 217) is a former second-round pick out of Auburn in 2010.

Pyro's take: Tate has struggled with injuries throughout his career, but if he signs with the Browns he will get a chance to be the guy. When Tate was drafted he suffered an injury and lost his starting job to an undrafted rookie named Arian Foster. There is no Foster in Cleveland, and if he can stay healthy he will have a good chance to be a viable fantasy option in 2014.

The Browns have weapons in Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, so Tate would have help to keep the pressure off the running game. The likely addition of a rookie quarterback also adds to the emphasis the team will put on the running game to take the pressure off their young signal caller. That means more opportunities for Ben. If Tate stays healthy and signs in Cleveland, he could be a nice sleeper in 2014.
