Fantasy Analysis
Rushing: 19 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 1 Receptions, 7 Yards, 0 TD.

After serving as the main backup to fantasy stud Arian Foster in Houston over the past three seasons, Tate will finally get his chance to lead a backfield of his own. He is the clear No. 1 running back ahead of rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell with holdovers Edwin Baker and Chris Ogbonnaya also battling for carries. Tate is not an overly shifty runner but does possess an explosive burst and the ability to hit the hole and head downhill. Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan utilizes a zone-blocking scheme, which is perfect for Tate's style as it is similar to how the Texans also ran the football. The main concern with Tate is his ability to stay on the field, as he has missed 24 regular season games over the past four years. Playing a 16-game schedule feels like a reach for a running back that has battled hip, quad, ankle, hamstring, groin, rib, elbow and toe injuries. Tate has solid RB2 running back potential as the three-down option in Cleveland but should have a big red flag attached to him due to his high injury risk.

Rushing: 77 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 27 Yards, 0 TD.
