ESPN - [Full Article]

The breakout season for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate has come to an end. The Bucs announced Tuesday afternoon that he has been placed on injured reserve.

Brate suffered a back injury late in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the New Orleans Saints. He walked off the field very slowly and kept grabbing his lower back region on the sideline. He had originally been announced as "questionable" to return, but was then downgraded to "doubtful" and never re-entered the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Brate finishes his season with 57 catches for 660 yards. His eight touchdown catches are currently the most in the league among tight ends and are second on the Bucs behind Mike Evans. Myers should see an increased workload with Brate out.

Brate, who scored a TD on Saturday, walked up and down the sideline very slowly with trainers, clutching his lower back. Myers, Cross and Stocker are up next on the depth chart if Brate can't go in Week 17.

Buccaneers Inactives

QB Ryan Griffin
LB Bruce Carter

TE Brandon Myers
WR Vincent Jackson
DE George Johnson
DT Akeem Spence

Fantasy Impact:

With Jackson out, Mike Evans should see a ton of targets against the Rams. In the three games that V-Jax missed this year, Evans averaged 13.7 targets (for 6.3 catches and 110 yards). Evans averaged 8.6 targets in eight games with Jackson in the lineup. The Rams did contain Calvin Johnson last week, so a big game for Evans isn't a sure thing. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is also more appealing as a streaming option.

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 4. ASJ is not going to play this week. Brandon Myers takes over as the team’s primary tight end.

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Brandon Myers has taken over as the “move” tight end in the Tampa Bay offense.

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

With Jameis Winston throwing the football and Dirk Koetter calling plays, a healthy Austin Seferian-Jenkins figures to get more opportunities to flourish in Tampa Bay's offense.

Same goes for Luke Stocker, Brandon Myers, Tim Wright and maybe even Cameron Brate, too.

The Buccaneers are seeking more production from a versatile group of tight ends excited by the prospect of an increased workload in a passing attack that ranked among the worst in the NFL a year ago.

The team's rookie quarterback and new offensive coordinator are exploring all options to get better.

"When I look at this team, I see everyone as targets," Winston said.

"Those guys are good," the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft added. "It's a lot of things in position for us to succeed."

Fantasy Impact:

Tampa Bay tight ends had a combined 51 receptions for 469 yards and two touchdowns last season, with Seferian-Jenkins and Myers accounting for most of those yards. The group was strengthened this spring by the signing of Wright. He rejoined the Bucs after spending last season in New England, where he had 26 receptions, scored six TDs and won a Super Bowl ring. The story said the team is most excited about Seferian-Jenkins potential. We rank him 14th on our TE list.

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bucs didn’t get a lot of production out of the tight end position last year. But that’s almost certain to change. New offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter had the tight ends very involved in the passing game during his stops in Atlanta and Jacksonville.

That’s good news for second-year pro Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He had only 21 catches during an injury-filled rookie season. But the Bucs believe Seferian-Jenkins can be a big producer in the passing game.

The team also picked up Tim Wright in the offseason. Wright isn’t much of a blocker, but he has good receiving skills and that could mean some two tight end sets.

Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker are strong blockers, but they likely will be competing for one roster spot.

Fantasy Impact:

Koetter coaxed a 58-700-10 season out of Marcedes Lewis in 2010 to go along with the 176 catches for 1,965 yards and 16 touchdowns in two seasons with Tony Gonzalez in 2012-2013. Seferian-Jenkins is a breakout candidate in his second season with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator and is a high-end TE2 option heading into drafts.

Buccaneers TE Brandon Myers (calf, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15.
