  • Cameron Brate Could Be Cut This Offseason

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could cut tight end Cameron Brate this offseason, as they are projected over the salary cap and will look to make cuts for cap purposes. By cutting Brate, the Bucs would save $2 million in cap space. Running back Leonard Fournette, kicker Ryan Succop, and left tackle Donovan Smith could also be cap casualties. Brate caught 20 passes for 170 yards over 11 games in 2022. He took a backseat to rookie Cade Otton, who became Tampa Bay's top pass-catching tight end in 2022. Brate could provide tight end depth and a reliable target for another team if he does become a cap casualty this offseason.

  • Cameron Brate Scores In Wild-Card Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate scored his first touchdown of the season in the 31-14 wild-card loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. Brate had just one catch on three targets for an eight-yard touchdown. Fantasy managers were expecting much more from the 31-year-old in 2022 with Rob Gronkowski retired, but Brate wasn't much of a factor and rookie Cade Otton was a much bigger part of the passing attack. In 11 regular season games, Brate finished with 20 receptions on 38 targets for just 174 yards and no touchdowns. It was the first regular season that he failed to find the end zone. With Otton likely to continue developing, the Buccaneers may decide to move on from Brate this offseason.

  • Cameron Brate A Healthy Scratch On New Year's Day

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate is a healthy scratch and will not play in Week 17 in a big divisional showdown against the Carolina Panthers. Brate's disappointing 2022 continues after he played just eight offensive snaps in last week's overtime win over the Arizona Cardinals. He was expected to be a much bigger part of Tampa's offense this year with no Rob Gronkowski around, but that hasn't worked out for him. The 31-year-old hasn't scored a single touchdown and has secured 20 of his 38 targets for 174 yards in 10 games played (one start). With Brate inactive this weekend, rookie Cade Otton has a prime opportunity to come through for fantasy managers brave enough to stream him against Carolina.

  • Cameron Brate Hauls In Two Catches In Week 15 Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate caught two of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He continues to share snaps with rookie tight end Cade Otton but out-targeted the rookie 4-to-1 in Sunday's defeat. Brate has caught at least two passes in three straight games but has yet to find the end zone this season. The 31-year-old has racked up 20 receptions for 174 yards across nine games. Brate is a dart throw at best in deep-league formats in a favorable matchup against the Cardinals in Week 16.

  • Cameron Brate Not A Streaming Option For Week 14

    The good news is that Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) is off the injury report. The bad news is that he likely won't contribute to any fantasy rosters in Week 14. Brate has only 16 receptions for 137 yards and hasn't scored a touchdown through 13 weeks this season. The Buccaneers have plenty of weapons for quarterback Tom Brady, including rookie tight end Cade Otton, meaning targets should be difficult for Brate to find. Facing a 49ers defense that ranks sixth in DVOA versus opposing tight ends, this is a bad matchup for the veteran. Brate should be on fantasy benches heading into Week 14, if not the waiver wire.

  • Cameron Brate Logs Full Practice Wednesday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The 31-year-old was sick and missed Monday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Brate will be active Sunday against the 49ers if he can fully practice the rest of the week. The veteran is in a timeshare with rookie tight end Cade Otton and has caught just 16 passes for 137 yards over seven games in 2022. Brate is off the fantasy radar for Week 14 against a 49ers defense that ranks sixth in DVOA versus opposing tight ends.

  • Cameron Brate Inactive On Monday Night

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) is officially inactive for the Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints. It comes as a bit of a surprise after Brate returned to a full practice on Saturday, but he'll miss the game anyway while being under the weather. The 31-year-old, who still hasn't scored a touchdown this year, will miss his fifth game of the season. With Brate out of the picture, rookie Cade Otton will have some TE2 streaming appeal in DFS for Monday night's game. Kyle Rudolph and Ko Kieft could also be involved. In his first 10 NFL games in 2022, Otton has caught 26 of his 35 targets for 281 yards and one touchdown.

  • Cameron Brate Logs Full Practice On Saturday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) practiced in full on Saturday. He has been under the weather, so he didn't suit up for the team's previous practice sessions over the last two days. That said, Brate remains questionable ahead of Monday night's meeting with the Saints. However, his upgraded designation is a positive sign, so he will probably be out there barring a setback. The 31-year-old hasn't scored a touchdown this season, and he's also totaled just five catches in the last three games. As a result, fantasy managers should consider other options at the tight end spot for Week 13.

  • Cameron Brate Misses Another Practice Friday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) missed his second straight practice this week on Friday with an illness. If Brate doesn't return to practice on Saturday, there's a good chance he won't be available to play on Monday night against the New Orleans Saints. But even if the 31-year-old veteran tight end is out there in Week 13, he's not even much of a realistic TE2 streamer in fantasy with rookie Cade Otton's emergence. Brate is still searching for his first touchdown of the 2022 season in seven games and has only 16 receptions on 29 targets for 137 yards. In his last two games, he's hauled in three of his seven targets for 23 yards. Look elsewhere.

  • Cameron Brate Out Sick Thursday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (illness) didn't practice Thursday. He will have two more chances to practice this week ahead of Monday's game against the New Orleans Saints. The 31-year-old is in a timeshare with rookie tight end Cade Otton. Brate out-targeted Otton 5-0 and finished with two catches for 15 yards in last Sunday's overtime loss to the Browns. Brate has been mostly quiet this season, posting 16 catches for 137 yards over seven games. Fantasy managers can avoid using Brate outside deep-league formats even if he is active against the Saints Monday.

  • Cameron Brate Targeted Five Times In OT Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate caught two of five targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns. The veteran is in a timeshare with rookie tight end Cade Otton. However, Brate out-targeted Otton 5-0 and was fourth on the team in target share in Sunday's defeat. The 31-year-old has caught 16 passes on 29 targets for 137 yards over seven games in 2022. Brate and Otton continue to split time, limiting the fantasy upside of both Bucs' tight ends. Brate is considered a deep-league flier at best against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

  • Cameron Brate Active Sunday, Kyle Rudolph A Healthy Scratch

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (neck) is active for Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, Kyle Rudolph (coach's decision) is inactive. Brate hasn't played since Week 6 when he caught two passes for 14 yards before exiting with a scary upper-body injury. In total, he has 13 catches for 114 yards through five contests. Although he's not on the fantasy radar, his return to the lineup could detract from rookie Cade Otton's fantasy value this week.

  • Cameron Brate Questionable For Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (neck) is listed as questionable for the Germany game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was a full participant in practice this week and trending in the right direction toward suiting up against Seattle. The 31-year-old has missed the last three weeks due to a concussion and neck injury. He has caught 13 passes for 114 yards over five games in 2022. Cade Otton has leapfrogged Brate in the pecking order for targets in Tampa Bay's passing game. Fantasy managers can avoid using Brate even if he is active against the Seahawks in Week 10.

  • Cameron Brate Returns To Full Practice Wednesday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate (neck) put in a full practice on Wednesday. Brate hasn't played since Week 6 and also missed Week 5 due to a concussion. But he appears to be on the cusp of a return for the Germany game this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. However, rookie Cade Otton has looked good in Brate's absence, catching 13 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in the four games with Brate sidelined. The 31-year-old Brate will be involved when he returns to action, but Otton's emergence will probably limit his opportunities, at least initially when Tampa brings Brate back. If he plays this weekend, he shouldn't be in starting fantasy lineups.
