Huddle Up: The Browns traded up to get West, so he's definitely a franchise favorite. And with Josh Gordon sidelined, the Browns will have to run plenty so whomever wins this epic battle is looking at significant fantasy value.

Huddle Up: It's been a rough offseason health-wise for a number of the Browns' key offensive players, but this doesn't sound like anything more than your average RB wear and tear.

Huddle Up: It's the offseason move everyone expected, it just took a little longer. Tate gets out of Arian Foster's shadow and should get the opportunity to be the workhorse in Cleveland.

Huddle Up: The Jets spent free agent money on Chris Ivory last offseason and received decent production from an Ivory/Bilal Powell tandem while Mike Goodwin was bogged down by off-the-field issues. There are plenty of offensive issues to address, and while the ground game might not be at the top of that list Tate and/or Brown would be intriguing additions to the run-heavy Jets offense.

Huddle Up: After missing his rookie season, Tate has had a solid 3-year run in Houston as Arian Foster's backup, and it's definitely now time for the RB to head out on his own.

Huddle Up: It's the Dennis Johnson show in championship week. If you are desperate to fill a RB or flex slot, Johnson is a decent option with Tate on IR.

Huddle Up: Tate has been a warrior playing though the injury and has averaged 19 touches a game over the last 3 weeks. It certainly would be no surprise if Tate gets shut down st any time for the remainder of the season.

Huddle Up: Tate, who is still playing with rib fractures, is in a tough spot this week coming off a season-high 22 rushes and turning around on a short week with a game in Jacksonville on Thursday night. You're going to have to monitor Tate's status over the next few days if you're planning on using him Week 14.

Huddle Up: Tate will regain his starting job after getting benched last week with Dennis Johnson probably seeing around 10 carries as well. Tate has a strong match-up versus a Patriots' defense that just allowed 280 yards rushing to Denver but it's hard to trust him as anything more than a flex play with Johnson cutting into his touches now.

Huddle Up: Tate will regain his starting job this week after getting benched against Jacksonville but expect Dennis Johnson to see around 10-12 carries as well. The Patriots are struggling to stop the run, so Tate is worth a flex play even with Johnson eating into his touches.

Huddle Up: Too little, too late for the fantasy GMs who were burned by Tate and the Texans in Week 12. You might have no other choice than to move ahead with the RB in deeper leagues, but who knows what to expect from Houston down the stretch with its season having hit the fan in spectacular fashion.

Huddle Up: Tate is battling through four broken ribs but he's expected to start this week against Oakland. Tate should see most of the work again with Dennis Johnson spelling him when he needs a rest.
Posted: 11/12/2013 6:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Tate has weathered 41 touches in 2 games since sustaining the fractures, and the Texans will be counting on the RB even more now that Arian Foster's season is done.

Huddle Up: Props to Tate's toughness after he gutted out 23 touches against Indy, and he may be in line for a similar workload Week 10 if Arian Foster's hamstring doesn't mend this week.
Posted: 11/1/2013 3:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if fellow RB Arian Foster is unable to go with his hamstring injury, Tate likely will be kept on carry count with his ribs, meaning newly-signed Deji Karim or former practice squadder Ray Graham would see work.

Huddle Up: Tate is sporting four broken ribs, so it makes no sense to expose him to further injury in practice. He's said he's going to play, but if he does he'd be a risk to hold up to much of a workload.
Posted: 10/29/2013 10:12am ET
Huddle Up: Between Tate's broken ribs and Arian Foster's bad hamstring the Texans are all kinds of banged up in the backfield. Deji Karim was signed as insurance, but both Tate and Foster are indicating they'll try to give it a go this weekend.

Huddle Up: The Texans' bye week comes at an opportune time as the team's RB situation suddenly is riddled with question marks given Tate's ribs and Arian Foster's hamstring. FB Greg Jones is the only other RB on the roster, while undrafted rookie Ray Graham is on the team's practice squad. Look for the Texans to make some sort of move, bye week or not.
