Browns Beat: Ben Tate 'seems to be the frontrunner' for the RB1 job - [Full Article]

An update on the Browns' RB competition:

Ben Tate still seems to be the frontrunner for the top job, but Terrance West continues to get reps with the first team and is making his case as a legitimate threat to steal the starting job.

Tate showed more explosiveness than West and looked more comfortable running behind Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme. West showed some flashes and some raw power, but he had a fumble, which hurts. Tate wins Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: 

As long as he's healthy, we're expecting Tate to hold off West due to his experience. But Tate has a long injury history, so don't be surprised if West gets at least a few starts this season.
