Fantasy Analysis
The Browns running game has fallen apart without Alex Mack and the Tampa Bay defensive line is the only good part of a woeful defense. Since alternatives are scarce this week he's a must-start for most owners, but just understand if he doesn't get in the end zone he's not looking at a strong game.
Rushing: 69 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 13 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: 825 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 15 Receptions, 75 Yards, 0 TD.

OK, fellow Browns fans.... we have 4 NFL titles (50,54,55,64) and 4 AAFC titles (46-49) to our name, so let's not forget that we haven't ALWAYS been this bad...... I was born in 1966, so I haven't been alive for ANY of them, but I DO remember ...
 
 
This also goes over some of the better trades in Browns history. For instance, I had forgotten that the extra 1st rnd pick we got in a trade of Mike Phipps, we ended up with Ozzie Newsome. Forgot about that. CLEVELAND, Ohio Nobody predicted the ...
 
Well, what do you guys think? I'm taking a "in Holmgren and Heckert I trust" stance. It'll be nice to finally see everyone in the front office/leadership positions on the same page and sharing the same core ...
