  • Cade Otton Putting On A Show In Camp

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted rookie tight end Cade Otton 106th overall to join veteran Cameron Brate and future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski. Things changed, however, when Gronkowski announced his retirement, prompting the team to sign veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph. There are a lot of bodies to fill this position, but Otton has by far the most upside and untapped potential. Otton has reportedly flashed in camp and gained quarterback Tom Brady's trust, which is typically a difficult task for a rookie. With Chris Godwin (knee) potentially missing time to start the season, Mike Evans (hamstring) currently sidelined and a host of unproven options behind them, Otton has a chance to secure a meaningful role entering Week 1, making him a player to add to your watch list.

  • Cade Otton Back At Practice

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie fourth-round tight end Cade Otton (ankle) practiced this week for the first time since he injured his ankle last November. He was held out of organized team activities and minicamp, but he practiced all week with the tight ends and is stoked to be back on the field after eight months away. The addition of veteran Kyle Rudolph lessened the need for Otton to make a big impact in his first NFL season, but he'll rotate in with Rudolph and Cameron Brate and will play on special teams. As the No. 3 tight end entering the 2022 season, the 23-year-old can be ignored in single-year fantasy leagues, but he'll still be worth a look in dynasty/keeper formats as Tampa's future at the position.

  • Cade Otton Signs Rookie Contract

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cade Otton finally inked his rookie deal on Sunday. The fourth-round pick of the 2022 NFL Draft spent his collegiate career at the University of Washington. He compiled 91 catches for 1,026 yards and nine touchdowns in 39 games for the Huskies. He did have ankle surgery and didn't participate in the team's offseason program. However, he has since been cleared for training camp. Nonetheless, with Rob Gronkowski now gone due to retirement, Otton has a chance of emerging as the No. 1 option at the position for the Bucs in 2022-23. Still, the 23-year-old likely won't be an every-week fantasy producer this season, even if he becomes one of Tom Brady's preferred targets.

  • Cade Otton Cleared For Training Camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Cade Otton (ankle), who missed organized team activities and minicamp while recovering from ankle surgery, has been cleared to begin training camp on July 27. It's great news for the third-round pick, but his chances of making an impact in his first NFL season got worse when the team signed Kyle Rudolph to a one-year deal on Wednesday evening. When healthy, Rudolph and Cameron Brate should be Tampa's top pass-catching tight ends, making Otton mostly a speculative pick late in rookie-only drafts in 2022. In 31 college games with the Washington Huskies, Otton produced 91 receptions for 1,026 yards and nine touchdowns, so he certainly has intriguing pass-catching abilities at his position.

  • Cade Otton Could Become Bucs' No. 1 Tight End

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Cade Otton (ankle), who is expected to be done with his recovery from an ankle injury for the start of training camp, could become the team's No. 1 tight end over Cameron Brate now that Rob Gronkowski has retired. Otton is already considered an above-average and willing blocker, so there's potential for him to be the TE that the Buc keep on the field the most. Most draft analysts didn't think his college pass-catching numbers reflected his true potential due to injuries and weak quarterback play at Washington. It's also worth noting that before the arrival of Gronk, TEs weren't heavily featured in Bruce Arians' passing attack. Arians isn't the head coach anymore, but Byron Leftwich remains the offensive coordinator. Brate remains the best fantasy target at the position in Tampa, for now, as a touchdown-dependent TE2 with upside.

  • Cade Otton Expected To Be Ready For Training Camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Cade Otton (ankle) was just a spectator at mandatory minicamp while he recovers from an ankle injury that ended his season early last year, but he's expected to be healthy and ready for the start of training camp in July. The hope is that he can develop into a complete NFL tight end, but the Buccaneers will probably bring in an established veteran to take some of the pressure off Otton to be an immediate starter and contributor alongside Cam Brate now that Rob Gronkowski has retired again. Otton, the 23-year-old fourth-round pick, needed season-ending surgery on his ankle last year and will probably be brought along slowly in his first season in the NFL, so he'll be a long shot to be a fantasy contributor in 2022.
