Bucs Beat: TEs could make passing game great

A two-TE offense is a great set for a rushing attempt, but it can be deceptive and dangerous if it's used to pass the ball.

That's particularly true if both tight ends on the field are capable of running great routes and blocking defensive ends. That's the exact scouting report on Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard, which was why he was a first-round pick. Cameron Brate, who didn't block much in college, is improving in the second category but is obviously a threat in the passing game already.

Fantasy Impact: 

Keep in mind this is the Bucs website, but the writer brought up the redzone, where Brate caught all eight of his TDs last season. Howard will likely steal some of those targets, as will WR Mike Evans. As a result, both Brate (31st) and Howard (26th), right now, don't crack our top-25 in TE ranking.
