Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) likely will not be able to play Week 3, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Browns | Ben Tate out 2-4 weeks

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 05:32:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) will miss two to four weeks with a knee sprain. No surgery is required at this point. RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will fill in for Tate.

Fantasy Tip: West ($4,800 or 9.6% of your cap) is a solid flex option on FantasyScore. Crowell ($4,000; 8%) is a bargain flex option for Week 2.

Browns | No update on Ben Tate

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 11:01:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) has no injury update on his status for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: We won't have a better idea if Tate can suit up for Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints until later this week. To be safe, avoid him and his FantasyScore price of $5,100 (10.2% of cap). Terrance West ($4,800; 9.6%), who is Tate's backup, may be a decent option if Tate can't play. The Saints gave up over 100 yards on the ground in Week 1. Also, don't forget about Isaiah Crowell ($4,000; 8.0%).

Browns | Ben Tate nursing knee injury

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 17:02:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Sept. 7, and he was unable to return. RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell replaced Tate, with West rushing for 100 yards and Crowell scoring a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: If Tate is forced to miss time, Crowell and West could be nice sleepers in FantasyScore heading into Week 2 and beyond after showing well against a solid defense in their NFL debuts.

Browns | Ben Tate leaves game

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 11:27:59 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury Week 1 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has dealt with injuries in the past, but the severity of this injury is not known yet. Owners should monitor the situation to get a better timetable on Tate's injury.

Browns | Ben Tate on every down

Mon, 01 Sep 2014 07:46:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate is expected to stay on the field on third downs, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for his PPR value. Tate is a solid RB2, but Brian Hoyer will have to be an effective passer to keep eight defenders out of the box. Terrance West's value takes a hit as an RB4, at least early on. He remains a solid long-term piece.

Browns | Ben Tate, Terrance West might be great battle

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:02:45 -0700

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate and Terrance West will compete for the starting tailback job during training camp and the preseason, and it's a battle head coach Mike Pettine is looking forward to. "And the best competition might be Ben Tate and our guy (Terrance West) from Towson, who I really like," Pettine said Tuesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: The player to emerge as the starter will be a decent RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle will be best used as an RB3/4 in most formats.

Browns | Offense to focus on ground game

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:28:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns SS Donte Whitner said the team's offense will be based on running the football heavily. "I'm going to stand back and let this competition develop and may the best man win, but our offense is gonna be predicated on running the football and being physical in the run game also," Whitner told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "You can't just ask both quarterbacks to stand back there and throw the ball 35, 40 times a game."

Fantasy Tip: New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme should fit well with Ben Tate's abilities. Tate, who is expected to be the workhorse back for the team, won't come cheaply in drafts this year as a result.
