Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.
Fantasy Tip: Tate might be the better bet of the three to have fantasy value with his experience and return ability, but none of them should be regarded as vital additions to fantasy rosters.
Fri, 04 Mar 2016 15:14:26 -0800
Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon Tate re-signed an undisclosed deal with the Bengals Friday, March 4.
Fantasy Tip: Tate had only two grabs for 59 yards in 2015, but one of those catches went for a score. Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones are expected to test the free-agent market, so Tate's role could increase next year. But for now, he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.
Tue, 26 Jan 2016 16:33:59 -0800
Cincinnati Bengals WRs Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate are impending unrestricted free agents this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Jones will likely be the top free-agent priority, at least among their group of receivers, as he is coming off a career-high 816-yard season. Sanu has also shown flashes, but has not been as involved as Jones when Jones is healthy. Tate may be the odd man out and doesn't hold much fantasy value.

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 20:11:09 -0800
Impending free-agent WR Brandon Tate (Bengals) might not be re-signed, as he was too inconsistent as a return man and he struggled as a receiver in 2012. If the team re-signs impending free-agent CB Adam Jones, he'll likely be used as the return man, making Tate's re-signing even less likely.
Wed, 28 Nov 2012 17:20:19 -0800
Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has emerged as a great red zone target for QB Andy Dalton to take attention away from WR A.J. Green. Three of Sanu's four touchdowns have come with WR Andrew Hawkins (knee) out, and three of Sanu's TDs have come on third downs. Sanu has eight third down catches in his four starts. He has gone ahead of WRs Brandon Tate and Armon Binns on the depth chart. "He's awesome in the red zone," offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. "In zones he has a great feel for finding the holes and man-to-man he's got a big body (6-2, 210) where he can create separation for himself. He's everything we hoped he would be. It just took us too long a time to figure it out I guess."
Sun, 16 Sep 2012 18:31:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Armon Binns recorded his first career NFL reception in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. He finished with four catches for 28 yards. WR Brandon Tate had one grab for three yards.
Fantasy Tip: Both players are worth monitoring for fantasy purposes, but they are not worth adding to a roster just yet. The Bengals are looking for a player to step up as a tertiary receiving option to WR A.J. Green and TE Jermaine Gresham, and in Monday's game, that looked to be WR Andrew Hawkins, not Binns or Tate.
Fri, 10 Aug 2012 11:56:05 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon Tate has been listed as a starting wide receiver opposite A.J. Green and ahead of WR Armon Binns on the team's first depth chart of training camp.

Rookie Mohamed Sanu was listed fourth on the depth chart.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said WR Brandon Tate was one of the standout players during workouts this offseason. "He's been one of the best surprises of camp for me," said Gruden. "Last year he came in late (after being acquired on waivers from New England) and was mainly a return guy and our fifth receiver and never really got in the flow with the group at wide receiver. Now I think he's more confident, he sees that he belongs as an NFL wide receiver, and I think the confidence level that he has is showing. He's got all the ability. He runs all of the routes great, he's got great feel, and he's done an outstanding job."

New England Patriots WR Wes Welker said he believes that WRs Brandon Tate and Taylor Price have done a good job learning the offense and could be threats next season.

They really have to do their homework and it's hard for young guys to understand that. They've been great and hopefully we just keep working these guys along and bring them along, and hopefully be a threat for us next year," Welker said.
Thu, 17 Mar 2011 11:38:06 -0700
New England Patriots WR Brandon Tate may have to be more of a factor at wide receiver moving forward if the NFL approves the rule change that would move the kickoffs up to the 35-yard line because Tate has become a big factor as a kick returner, reports Mike Reiss, of ESPNBoston.com.

Mon, 11 Oct 2010 23:35:35 -0700
New England Patriots WR Deion Branch should be able to step in and contribute immediately to the Patriots' offense because of his pre-existing knowledge of the team's passing game, reports Christopher Price, of WEEI.com. His return will cut into the playing time of WRs Brandon Tate and Taylor Price, and it allows some of the team's younger receivers more time to develop in the system. The Patriots will be moving forward without a true No. 1 receiver.
