Bucs to re-sign TE Cameron Brate

Monday, March 12, 2018, 2:43pm

Jenna Laine - [Full Article]

ESPN reporter Jenna Laine tweeted that a source close to her said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed tight end Cameron Brate to a six-year deal worth $41 million, with $18 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact:

Brate was the eighth-highest scoring fantasy tight end last season, and led the team in targets (77), receptions (48), and yards (591) at the tight end position. He and OJ Howard each scored six touchdowns.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Cameron Brate made a name for himself two years ago with his eight-touchdown season and 660 receiving yards. He followed that up with a solid 2017 campaign, finishing with 591 yards and six scores. The Bucs rewarded his great play with a six-year contract, which means they clearly have trust in him, despite the arrival of 2017 first-round pick O.J. Howard.

Fantasy Downside

If you read our fantasy profile on Howard, then we’ll basically say the same thing here about Brate. Both of these players are capable of putting up TE1 numbers, but the two of them together is a headache for fantasy owners as they’ll likely make each other TE2 options. Brate is talented, but it’s hard to have two tight ends put up consistent production in fantasy every single week.

2018 Bottom Line

Brate should have a solid season for the Bucs, especially as a red zone threat, but don’t expect a Pro Bowl campaign as he splits time with Howard. Brate is a decent late-round option or waiver pickup as a streaming option depending on the matchup. He’ll be a good touchdown-or-bust choice most weeks.
