Tate (knee) will receive the starting nod Sunday against the Titans, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate's designation as active comes as expected, but it's worth noting that he'll draw the start in the Cleveland backfield. He was the starter to begin the season, and provided he makes it through this game unscathed, he should remain the starter moving forward. Rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West may still receive some touches, but it will likely be in a complementary role.

Coach Mike Pettine reiterated Thursday that Tate (knee) is on track to play Sunday against the Titans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Assuming the running back does suit up Sunday, Pettine noted that Tate will start for the Browns, though the team's potential Week 5 backfield rotation behind him is undetermined at this stage. With that in mind, both Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will represent speculative plays until there is some clarity on that front.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Nagging toe and hamstring injuries cost Tate five games last year and limited him throughout a disappointing season. If he can stay healthy this season, he'll reprise his 2011 role when he emerged as arguably the league's best backup while Arian Foster missed three games. At 5-11, 214 and with more long speed than Foster, Tate has averaged 5.1 YPC for his career. Houston has been the promised land for running backs with its zone-blocking system and offensive line that sets up running lanes as well as any team in the league. So if Foster – who's seen more than 1,100 touches in three years – were to go down, Tate could become a star.

2012

Tate had four fumbles in limited work last year and isn’t nearly the receiver Arian Foster is, but he also averaged 5.4 YPC, which was tied for second best in the NFL (minimum 100 carries). Tate forced 30 missed tackles – only 10 backs had more, while 45 saw more snaps. There’s little question Houston’s system is the best in the NFL right now for RB production, and while Tate has battled injuries in the past, when healthy he’s proven to be not only adequate but a top-15-type talent. Consequently, if Foster were to go down, Tate could easily be a top-three fantasy commodity. Players with this rare type of upside should be drafted aggressively.

2011

After Houston traded up in the second round to draft Tate (1,362 yards, 5.2 YPC and 10 touchdowns as a senior) he entered 2010 as the favorite to become the Texans' lead ball carrier. Instead, he missed the entire year after fracturing his fibula and tearing ankle ligaments in the preseason. Tate is big and strong and surprisingly ran a 4.43 40 at the Combine, which was the third fastest time recorded by a running back. Tate received full medical clearance in February and enters camp competing with Derrick Ward to back up Arian Foster. Houston's backfield has become the best environment in the NFL, so taking a flier on Tate could pay huge dividends if Foster were to go down with an injury.

2010

After three nondescript seasons at Auburn, Tate busted out as a senior last year, rushing for 1,362 yards (5.2 YPC) and 10 touchdowns. He’s not known for his receiving, but he’s also not completely worthless as a pass catcher either, and his pass protection is considered NFL ready. At 5-11, 218, Tate is big and strong, but he also surprisingly ran a 4.43 40 at the Combine, which was the third fastest time recorded by a running back. After Houston's struggles running the football last season (team YPC of 3.5 was tied for second worst in NFL), adding a RB was priority No. 1 for the Texans’ offseason, so it came as no surprise when the team traded up to draft Tate in the second round. Steve Slaton has plenty of talent and is capable of rebounding, but there’s also no guarantee he makes a full recovery after undergoing surgery on his neck. Slaton is likely thought of as more of a third-down back by Houston anyway, and while the undrafted Arian Foster is another back competing for touches, the Texans coaching staff seems to love Tate. Houston’s offense is one of the best in the NFL, so any ballcarrier who can emerge as a workhorse in this system has top-five upside. Tate looks like the favorite.
