Brady added he’s expecting a big season out of Howard, according to the rest of the tweet. Howard owned the No. 13 per game average before going down with an Achilles injury in Week 4. If Gronkowski continues to decline or the Bucs just want to limit his snaps, Howard could surprise. He cleared 49 yards and/or found the end zone in three of four games last year. There are a lot of mouths to feed in the Bucs offense, though.
TB TE Cameron Brate - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Atlanta Falcons
Cameron Brate saw a ridiculous 14 targets last week as the led the Bucs in receptions (10) and receiving yards (73). Brate took over as the main tight end after O.J. Howard was benched following his botched reception that led to an interception. Considering Brate's workload last week, he can be viewed as a low-end TE1 against the Falcons in Week 12. Atlanta is allowing an average of 12.16 to tight ends this season, but expect Brate to split that production somewhat with Howard.
