Browns RB Ben Tate 'penciled in' as starter


Browns RB Ben Tate 'penciled in' as starter

Browns beat writer Nate Ulrich says he has Tate 'penciled in' as the starting RB in Cleveland, despite competition for the spot. Rookie Browns RB Terrance West is also vying for the top roster position. For his part, Tate doesn't believe there's much competition to be had. "There's no one that can touch me or that's close to what I do," Tate said, when asked about the possiblity of losing carries to other Browns backs.

Fantasy Analysis:

That's an awful lot of bravado from Tate, who's new to the Browns this year. While Ulrich is probably right that Tate's going to end up as the starter in Cleveland, the carry split will likely be a lot closer than Tate believes. While he had some fairly productive years as Arian Foster's backup in Houston, Tate still has a lot to do to prove he can lead a rushing attack in the NFL. Draft him as a low-end RB2, but don't expect the moon.
