2018 Week 9 vs CAR (3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
Brate lined up with his hand in the dirt and caught a play action out-route for a short gain on his first target of the day in the 1st. He was quiet until he gathered two more short receptions in the waning minutes of the 4th quarter, finishing his day with just 15 yards on 3 targets.
2018 Week 8 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

2018 Week 4 vs CHI (4 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Brate was involved in the passing game before OJ Howard left with an injury, and saw an uptick in targets after his fellow tight end went down. Brate caught a check down pass on a crossing route in the 1st quarter, coming up well short of a long 3rd down marker. Fitzpatrick found him for a touchdown near the end of the 2nd quarter, but Brate was flagged for pushing off on his defender in the end zone.

Winston found Brate in the end zone early in the 4th quarter, with the tight end taking a big hit to the back while stretching out for the high pass.

2018 Week 3 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 34 / 1 rec)
After an 18 yard Peyton Barber run put Bucs inside the Steelers 5 yard line in the 1st quarter, Fitzpatrick faked a play action to Barber in a goal line set, and Brate leaked into the end zone where he was wide open under the goal post for an easy score.

Brate had to fully extend for the pass, but still managed to deliver a blow to his defender as he secured the pass and came back down to earth.

Brate was shut out for the second week in a row, as OJ Howard drew all the tight end targets for Tampa Bay.
2018 Week 1 vs NO (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Brate wasn't used much in the passing game as Fitzpatrick was dialed in with receivers Evans and Jackson. Brate nearly made an amazing high-point catch near the end zone in the second quarter, but he was forced out of bounds by a defender. It was his only target of the day. OJ Howard had nearly twice as many snaps as Brate.
Latest NewsBuccaneers | Cameron Brate had surgery (Fri Jan 18, 09:20 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (hip) had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip, according to a source, and Brate is hoping to return for minicamp in June. Our View: Brate played through this injury for most of the 2018 season where he finished with 30 catches for 289 yards and six touchdowns (in 16 games). Those were lower numbers than he posted each of the last two years. Fantasy GMs should be expecting that trend to continue for Brate in Bruce Arians offense where the tight end (especially the no.2 tight end) isn't used that much.
