I've been beating this drum since my early days of playing fantasy football, and it's a mantra I adhere to to this day.
You can never have too many running backs.
Yes, the gap between the running back position and wideouts, quarterbacks and even tight ends has narrowed in recent years, and a fantasy-draft first round that used to be dominated by running backs is now much more diversified.
However, that doesn't change the fact that nothing will sink a fantasy team faster than not having enough depth at running back.
Not only is it the position that gets hit hardest by injuries, but it's also the hardest hole to plug with the scraps that are left on your fantasy league's waiver wire.
So, whether you're an Arian Foster owner hedging his bet, a dynasty owner looking down the road or just in need of some depth in your fantasy backfield give Ben Tate a long look in the middle rounds of your fantasy draft.
Because as Mike Pisani, the esteemed co-host of the fantasy football podcast I take part in twice weekly, has stated repeatedly, "Ben Tate is going to be a force in the NFL for years to come."
