2013 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks

Update(10/20): With Foster missing time due to a hamstring injury, the running game in Houston will be in the hands of Ben Tate. In the past Tate has been a quality replacement for Foster and there's no reason to believe this trend won't continue.

Profile: If we've said it once, we've said it 100 times: the Texans like to run the ball and run it they will. In their current setup, Tate spells Foster on third downs and picks up a few carries in garbage time. When given the opportunity, Tate performs well. Should Foster miss significant time, Tate would step into this run heavy offense and post very good fantasy numbers.

9.08 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - OK, I really need to start stocking up on running backs. I decided to go with Tate, who I thought was a safer pick than any of the three Rams RBs I could have chosen here; I view them as more all-or-nothing picks. Tate had a forgettable 2012 season due to multiple injuries, but we shouldn't forget how good he looked in 2011. He gets meaningful work every week and is one injury away from being the clear-cut starter in a run-heavy offense with an above-average offensive line. He may be given a couple extra carries per game this season as the Texans try to keep Arian Foster's body from breaking down following three seasons of heavy usage.

10.09 FFToday - This is an upside pick for a player that will have a great chance to be a top ten fantasy star at his position should the first-stringer miss significant time.
