Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate exceeded expectations in the absence of an injured TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins in 2015, finishing with 288 yards and three touchdowns on 23 receptions.
"Cam is an ascending player and our hope for him is that he takes it and runs with it. That's what you want. It would be a great story and great for our team," head coach Dirk Koetter said.
Fantasy Tip: Brate is someone to keep an eye on going forward if Seferian-Jenkins continues to struggle with injuries, as he showed obvious chemistry with Jameis Winston last season. Short of another injury-marred campaign from Seferian-Jenkins, however, the former undrafted free agent will do more to occasionally chip away at ASJ's value than become a fantasy force. Owners can ignore him in all but the deepest leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht likes TE Cameron Brate as a potential breakout candidate in 2016. Brate had 23 catches for 288 yards and four touchdowns last year.
Fantasy Tip: Austin Seferian-Jenkins is Tampa's leading tight end, so Brate will be overshadowed again to begin the season. However, with ASF playing only 16 games in his first two seasons, Brate is one to watch in fantasy circles should their starter go down to injury again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains uncertain for the Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons. TEs Cameron Brate, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker has combined for just 11 catches, 95 yards and zero touchdowns on 16 targets in Seferian-Jenkins' absence. However, the Bucs aren't rushing Seferian-Jenkins back into action if he's not ready.
Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) could be a game-time decision this week against Atlanta after being limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday. Considering what he did in Week 1 (five catches, 110 yards and two touchdowns), he'd certainly be attractive as a value play on FantasyScore against a Falcons team allowing 16.1 fantasy points per game to the position this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TEs Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker will take the majority of snaps at tight end with TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) sidelined. Myers is the better pass-catcher, while Stocker is more of a blocking tight end. TE Cameron Brate was also elevated to the active roster.
Fantasy Tip: Myers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Stocker ($2,000) are both extremely deep sleepers for daily gamers. If you're going to gamble on one of them, Myers should be your pick.
