Tate will be worth a look on draft day

The Texans had the best passing offense in the league last season, but their running game needed a lift. The team hopes the addition of Ben Tate will do just that.

The Auburn product has has a great chance to be the new starter for coach Gary Kubiak, who’s been looking for a hard-nosed, physical runner out of the backfield to complement Steve Slaton. Tate’s presence also decimates any value Arian Foster or Ryan Moats might have had otherwise.

While this has all the look of a committee situation with Tate in on early downs and Slaton working as a change-of-pace back, the rookie has more value in all fantasy leagues.

He’ll be worth a look in the middle to late rounds.
