Browns think Ben Tate can be a three-down RB

Nate Ulrich on Twitter - [Full Article]

Browns HC Mike Pettine said he's comfortable with RB Ben Tate playing on third down.

Fantasy Impact: 

Terrance West struggled in the preseason, as can be typical with young backs, so it seems to have paved the way for Tate. The big issues with Tate is staying healthy, but he showed flashes with Houston when given a chance. Another problem is the Browns lack of a passing game and issues at QB. Tate ranks 24th coming into the season which makes him a decent RB3 or flex option. He's also ranked 24th for Week 1 against the Steelers, who were actually only ranked 20th against the run last year.
