Anticipate a very large workload versus the Steelers. Despite preseason concerns over West stealing some touches, Tate appears to be locked in as an every down guy.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Steelers were only 21st against fantasy running backs, but Tate is going to be facing 11 in the box the way QB Brian Hoyer has been throwing the ball.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Is going to have a nice role right off the bat but Steelers aren't going to be dominated.
Probably one of the more underrated options, but he doesn't score much and is in a committee. Matchup isn't amazing.
