Quick fantasy outlook: Ben Tate suffered from injuries to his foot and hamstring last year that kept him from being a contributor in the Texans backfield. As the season went on, Houston turned to Arian Foster more and more, limiting Tate's touches. In 2011 Tate was much more involved in the offense, despite also being a supplement to Foster. His success as a backup yielded 175 carries for 942 yards and 4 touchdowns. Houston uses a zone blocking system in their offensive approach. Not only is it a perfect match for Foster, but Tate also has proven that he can be very effective as well. If he stays healthy, he should continue to see a decent number of touches in 2013. He is also playing for a new contract that could see him exploring a starting role with another team in 2014. The latest calf strain injury to Arian Foster will allow Tate to be featured more in the preseason. If he performs well, he could also be utilized more often during the regular season, thus keeping Foster fresh and limiting his workload. It all points to potential production increase for Tate.
