Analysis: Tate ran for 371 yards and four touchdowns this season for Cleveland and Minnesota. The Vikings released him two weeks ago and now he is headed to the playoffs.

Analysis: Tate signed with Cleveland as a free agent before the season. Tate had only two carries for minus-9 yards against the Texans last week and said he was dissatisfied with his role. Tate also missed two games earlier this year because of a sprained right knee. The Vikings host Green Bay this Sunday and are thin at running back with Adrian Peterson suspended and Matt Asiata out with a concussion.

Analysis: Tate was signed Wednesday, when running backs Matt Asiata (concussion) and Jerick McKinnon (lower back injury) both were held out of practice. The move also came the day after the NFL announced a suspension of running back Adrian Peterson for the rest of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Analysis: Tate signed as a free agent with Cleveland in March to be their every-down back. He rushed for 333 yards this season, but his playing time had been dwindling with the emergence of rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West.
|Oct. 20 12:39 PM PT1:39 PM MT2:39 PM CT3:39 PM ET19:39 GMT3:39 AM 北京时间12:39 PM MST2:39 PM EST2:39 PM CT23:39 UAE15:39 ET17:39 - Tate ran for 36 yards on 16 carries in Sunday's loss to the Jags.
Analysis: Tate has lost yardage on 15 of 41 carries in the last two weeks - plays in which the Browns were arguably better off taking a knee. That's a troubling sign for fantasy owners.
|Oct. 13 7:19 AM PT8:19 AM MT9:19 AM CT10:19 AM ET14:19 GMT10:19 PM 北京时间7:19 AM MST9:19 AM EST9:19 AM CT18:19 UAE10:19 ET13:19 - Tate ran for 78 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-10 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Tate has now delivered in back-to-back weeks, posting a combined 202 rushing yards. He should continue to produce as long as he stays healthy.
|Oct. 6 12:49 PM PT1:49 PM MT2:49 PM CT3:49 PM ET19:49 GMT3:49 AM 北京时间12:49 PM MST2:49 PM EST2:49 PM CT23:49 UAE15:49 ET18:49 - Tate ran for a career-high 123 yards as Cleveland stormed back to win 29-28 at Tennessee on Sunday.
Analysis: It was an impressive day for Tate, who hadn't played since suffering a knee injury in Week 1. He had 22 of the team's 35 carries while Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell combined for 13. He should be considered a solid RB2 headed into Week 6.

The team listed him as "probable" for Sunday's game, but Tate downgraded himself to "questionable."
Analysis: "I'll have to see how it feels tomorrow," he said.
|Mar. 15 1:23 PM PT2:23 PM MT3:23 PM CT4:23 PM ET20:23 GMT4:23 AM 北京时间1:23 PM MST3:23 PM EST2:23 PM CT0:23 UAE (+1)16:23 ET19:23 - Tate was on the Browns' radar for months. He's now on their roster.
Analysis: Tate signed a two-year, $7 million free agent deal on Saturday with Cleveland, which has been desperate to find a quality every-down running back since trading Trent Richardson to Indianapolis early last season.
