Bills' Brandon Tate: Won't play against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate is inactive for Thursday's game against the Jets.

It looks like some combination of Jordan Matthews, Micah Hyde, Taiwan Jones and Deonte Thompson will serve as the primary return men Thursday. Tate is one of the league's better returners, but he doesn't offer much in the receiving game even though he made a big play last week against the Raiders. Coach Sean McDermott must have a different strategy set for this week, while Tate's outlook may not get much better once the Bills start suiting up newcomer Kelvin Benjamin in Week 10. Tate's best hope might be if his special teams replacements simply botch the job.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Gets called upon in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate caught two of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Bengals, while also putting up 58 return yards on two punt returns and a kickoff return.

Tate was needed in the receiving game due to the injury to Jordan Matthews, and while his 34 snaps (49 percent) were just the third most on the team, there's value to be had if you have a unique scoring system that values return yards, as he's one of the league's better return guys. As for his role in the offense, Tate only has seven receiving touchdowns over 116 NFL games, so keep your expectations in check on that side of the equation.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Inactive in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

This seems strange to us since Tate is one of the league's better return men, but the Bills can also use Kaelin Clay on returns and Clay is probably a better receiver, where the Bills have no stars and could use some depth in the passing game. In any matter, find another returner for Week 4 if your league uses those.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Inactive for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was a healthy inactive for Sunday's loss at Carolina.

The Bills chose to use Kaelin Clay in the returner role, possibly because Clay came over from the Panthers and coach Sean McDermott thought he'd have better knowledge of how to bust one against his former team. In reality, this was kind of a strange decision, as Tate is one of the league's better return men and has performed well in his 16 games with the Bills. Since Clay didn't do much in the game besides mishandling a punt, we'd expect Tate to be handling the return duties again in short order.

Bills' Brandon Tate: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
