Player Outlook

Brandon Tate will compete for a role with the Bills this season as a  reserve receiver. He spent 2016 with the Bills and had eight catches for 117 yards. He is more of a return man than an offensive threat, and he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. Ignore him in most formats on Draft Day.

  • Bills' Brandon Tate: Back at practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate, who suffered a minor calf injury last weekend, has returned to training camp practices. The Bills have some decent returners in camp between the experienced Tate, Rashad Ross and the recently signed Taiwan Jones. Tate is the best skilled of the group, however, and seems to have a good shot at landing the final receiver spot based on his special teams prowess.

  • Tate suffered a calf injury during Saturday's training camp practice and is considered day-to-day, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports. The Bills have a logjam of receivers trying to win jobs below the 3-4 locks to make the team, while Tate -- assuming this is only a minor injury -- seems like one of the better bets based on his excellent return skills. Tate is expected to be re-evaluated ahead of Sunday's session.

  • Bills' Brandon Tate: Stays the course in Buffalo
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate re-signed with the Bills on Monday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. The Bills have brought in a whole host of depth wideouts over the last week, but Tate has better special teams skills than all of them, which will likely be his ticket to making the final roster. Tate had the NFL's sixth-best kickoff return average among qualifiers in 2016 with 22.83 yards per return and was fifth best in punt returns at 11.58, so it's not hard to figure out where his value lies. Even with a new coaching staff in town, the team didn't want to let him get away.

  • Bills' Brandon Tate: Ready to shop return skills
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate, who ranked in the top 10 in both kickoff and punt return averages in 2016, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. If Rex Ryan was still the Bills coach, it'd be more likely that the speedy Tate would be back. However, a new coaching group is about to take over so all three facets of the team are about to take on a different look. That said, the Bills may try to bring back Tate anyway, as there aren't many returners with his ability, plus he's adequate enough as a receiver to fill the No. 5 spot. He's also said he'd like to stay in Buffalo. Tate caught eight passes for 115 yards in 2016, while he never found the end zone as a receiver, runner, or returner.

  • Bills' Brandon Tate: Key role in Week 11 win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate had two catches for 48 yards while averaging 33 yards on two kickoff returns and 11 yards on three punt returns during Sunday's win over the Bengals. Tate ended up playing 26 offensive snaps, mostly because Robert Woods left the game for good in the first half. That's a situation worth watching for those in leagues where players get points for both receiving yards and return yards, as Tate could be forced into an offensive role if neither Woods or Sammy Watkins can return for the Week 12 game against Jacksonville. In any matter, Tate was able to top 5,000 career yards in Sunday's win, and perhaps that felt just a little better coming against his former team.
