T-West can make his mark against the Saints

RB Fantasy News -

Browns running back Terrance West is far from a sure thing, but if he blows up during Week 2 against the Saints, you will be in a battle next week to pick him up against the rest of your league as a RB fantasy football option.

When Ben Tate went down with an injury, West racked up 100 yards on 16 carries against the Steelers. Facing a questionable Saints run defense, he has a chance to shine during Week 2.

Browns coach Mike Pettine has already named West as the lead back, so fantasy owners in need of a fantasy RB have the opportunity to grab him now before he’s really on the map.

Again, there’s no guarantee that a Fantasy RB like West will rock the world out there, but smart fantasy players know that grabbing a player based on potential could pay strong dividends. Browns back Isaiah Crowell has more power than West and could vulture some goal line chances, but West will get the bulk of the carries.

Tate is currently listed as week-to-week with a sprained knee, but his durability has always been a problem and the Browns knew they were taking a big risk when they signed him.

The majority of Tate’s contract is structured on the amount of games he is able to play. Sunday’s game against the Saints will be the 25th game he’s missed since he joined the league in 2011.
