Brate was tied for third in production of 15+ point games among tight ends last year, but he is going well outside of the TE1 ranks and even after rookie and fellow Buc tight end OJ Howard. Brate's chemistry with Jameis Winston in the red zone won't go away. He's low-hanging fruit as a fine TE2 or bonus big week TE3 in best ball drafts.

Summary

Brate returns to Tampa Bay after his restricted tender was signed this offseason. He finished third on the team in targets in 2016, logging quality tape of contested catches and red zone acumen. Tampa Bay drafted O.J. Howard in Round 1 as a long-term caution light for his prolonged production with the Buccaneers. However, Brate is the starter to begin the season in 2017 as rookie tight ends historically are worked in slowly out of the gate. With Tampa Bay also adding DeSean Jackson to the pass-game pecking order, Brate will be hard pressed to approach his 660 yards or eight touchdowns from a year ago. (May 20)
