  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Another impressive playoff effort

    Otton secured five of eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday. On the heels of a career-best showing in the wild-card win over the Eagles, Otton put together a solid encore Sunday that included the Buccaneers' second-most receptions and receiving yards on the afternoon. The second-year tight end also tied for second in targets and hauled in a two-yard scoring grab just before halftime for his first career postseason touchdown. Otton, who'll head into the third year of his rookie contract in 2024, put together a relatively ordinary 47-455-4 line across 17 regular-season games; however, his combined 13-154-1 tally in two playoff games serves as proof he's capable of functioning as more than just a short-area, complementary option in the team's passing game.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Career-best showing in playoff win

    Otton brought in eight of 11 targets for 89 yards in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night. Otton was the surprise leader in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, and by a wide margin at that, arguably the single-most unexpected individual performance on either side during Tampa Bay's dominant win. His totals were all career highs as well, as he continuously exploited Philadelphia's linebackers and safeties. The second-year pro could be busy again in Sunday's divisional-round battle against the Lions, considering Detroit also had plenty of trouble defending the tight end position this just-completed regular season.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Solid efficiency in win

    Otton secured two of three targets for 30 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday. While Otton's numbers look unremarkable on the surface, they were actually noteworthy when considered in the context of how quiet a day it was for the Buccaneers' air attack and the fact Otton had failed to clear 16 receiving yards in four of the previous five contests. Otton now will look to make an impact in Monday night's wild-card matchup against the Eagles after producing a 4-58-0 line on seven targets in a wild-card loss to the Cowboys last season as a rookie.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Underwhelming numbers in loss

    Otton secured two of six targets for 10 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-13 loss to the Saints on Sunday. Otton tied for the team lead in targets with Chase Edmonds but did little with them, leading to his fourth sub-20-yard outing in the last five contests. Otton's substandard production down the stretch has made him a virtual fantasy non-factor heading into the regular-season finale against the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Minimal production in win

    Otton secured his only target for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 30-12 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Otton saw a notable downturn in receiving yardage after producing a 2-44-0 line in Week 15, with Sunday's tally serving as his second lowest of the season. The second-year tight end is still the Buccaneers' primary pass-catching option at the position and played a season-high 71 snaps against the Jaguars, but rookie Payne Durham did outpace him in the victory by recording a 25-yard grab on his only catch.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Blanked despite robust role

    Otton did not draw a target over 61 snaps in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers. Otton was blanked on the stat sheet for only the third time of his career, with the first two coming Weeks 1 and 12 of his rookie 2022 season. The catch-less performance came out of nowhere and is certainly an outlier, considering Otton had recorded at least four receptions in five of the previous six contests. The second-year pro should have a very good chance of atoning in a Week 14 road matchup against a Falcons team that's allowed a robust 73-705-3 line to tight ends over 12 games.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Four catches in Week 12 loss

    Otton secured all four targets for 45 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-20 loss to the Colts on Sunday. The second-year tight end finished tied with Trey Palmer for second on the team in receptions and with Chris Godwin for the same slotting in receiving yards. Otton now has back-to-back four-catch tallies and at least that many receptions in five of the last six contests overall, giving him a serviceable floor heading into a Week 13 home matchup against the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Sleeper TEs

    Otton has been a somewhat reliable Fantasy tight end of late with at least 8.7 PPR points in four of his past five games. I'm expecting him to stay in that range again in Week 12 at the Colts, and he should be considered a low-end starter in all leagues. Indianapolis is No. 7 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends, and this game has some sneaky shootout appeal. Otton should see five-plus targets in this matchup, which should help him maintain his recent level of play.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    Otton has scored at least 8.7 PPR points in four of his past five games, and he can be considered a low-end starter in deeper leagues heading into Week 12 at Indianapolis. Otton has at least five targets in each of his four productive outings, and Baker Mayfield should continue to keep Otton involved in the passing game. He has a favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 12, and Indianapolis is No. 7 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends. Consider Otton a sleeper in Week 12, and he's worth adding for 1 percent of your FAB.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Modest numbers in loss

    Otton caught four of five targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the 49ers. The yardage actually led the Buccaneers on the day, and it was Otton's second-best total of the season. The second-year tight end is beginning to develop some consistency, catching at least four passes in four of the last five games, but he remains a secondary option in a fairly low-upside Tampa Bay passing game.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Downturn in production Sunday

    Otton brought in two of three targets for 10 yards in the Buccaneers' 20-6 win over the Titans on Sunday. Otton finished tied with Rachaad White and Trey Palmer for third on the team in receptions, but his numbers were a noteworthy disappointment for fantasy managers banking on a successful encore to his season-best 6-70-2 line in Week 9 against the Texans. Otton's production is bound to continue fluctuating due to game script and the involvement of top wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as well as White, who's proven to be one of the best pass-catching backs in the league during his second campaign.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: TEs to Sit

    Otton is coming off a huge game in Week 9 at Houston with six catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets for 23 PPR points, and he scored at least 8.7 PPR points in three games in a row. But there could be some regression in Week 10 against the Titans, who are No. 5 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends. Tennessee also is the only team yet to allow a touchdown to a tight end this year, including matchups with David Njoku, Mark Andrews and Kyle Pitts.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Week 10 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    The Texans did a decent job taking away the Buccaneers primary outside receivers Sunday, but they didn't let that shut down the offense. Otton stepped up to lead the team in catches and targets, while scoring both touchdowns through the passing game from Baker Mayfield. Otton has been getting more involved in the offense of late, with at least six targets in three straight games. Sunday's was his first big game, so I'm not saying he's someone I'm ready to trust, necessarily. But with Travis Kelce and Dallas Goedert on bye next week, you might find yourself in need of some help on the wire, and Otton can provide some.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Finds end zone twice in loss

    Otton secured six of nine targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 39-37 loss to the Texans on Sunday. Otton was the surprising leader in receptions and targets for the Bucs on the afternoon, exploiting a Texans defense that had been vulnerable to tight ends in the first half of the season. The second-year pro found the end zone from three and 14 yards out for his first two scores since Week 4 against the Saints, and he's now amassed an impressive 15 receptions on 21 targets over his last three games. Otton will look to carry over his burgeoning chemistry with Baker Mayfield into a Week 10 home matchup against the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Finds end zone in Week 4 win

    Otton brought in three of four targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 26-9 win over the Saints on Sunday. The second-year tight end worked himself free for his first touchdown of the season, a four-yard grab in traffic just past the midway point of the second quarter. Otton has mostly been a complementary option in the air attack as expected -- he's recorded three receptions or fewer in three of four games -- but he could enjoy a larger role in a Week 6 matchup against the Lions following a Week 5 bye if No. 1 wideout Mike Evans is unable to suit up due to the hamstring injury that caused his early exit Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Good gain on one reception

    Otton brought in one of two targets for 16 yards in the Buccaneers' 25-11 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. Otton was coming off a solid six-catch, 41-yard effort versus the vulnerable Bears defense, but he garnered much less of Baker Mayfield's attention in an appreciably tougher matchup. The second-year tight end does have at least one catch in each of the first three games, but he remains a clear complementary option in a passing attack that still figures to revolve around Mike Evans and Chris Godwin -- and feature plenty of short passes to running back Rachaad White -- on the overwhelming majority of weeks this season.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Breaks off impressive run Saturday

    Otton wasn't targeted during Saturday's 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens but carried once for 12 yards. Otton's sole contribution ironically came on the ground, but he flashed his speed by taking the ball up the right sideline for a solid gain to the Ravens' 22-yard line on the Buccaneers' first touchdown drive. The second-year tight end is expected to play a significant role in an offense that projects to feature plenty of play-action passing, following an impressive rookie campaign in which he finished with a 42-391-2 line over 16 games and a four-catch, 58-yard effort in the wild-card loss to the Cowboys.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Excited about new offense

    Otton, who's heading into the 2023 season as the No. 1 tight end, is excited about the diversity the position enjoys in new coordinator Dave Canales' offense, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports. The second-year pro, who's the top pass-catching option at his position on the Buccaneers, will be playing in a scheme projected to feature an emphasis on the ground attack and plenty of play action off of that. That's expected to open up some more opportunities for a player the caliber of Otton, who's both a solid blocker and has also already demonstrated an ability to find soft spots in coverage. The projected increase in the use of two-tight-end sets -- which is based on how frequently the team Canales served as quarterbacks coach for a year ago, the Seahawks, deployed that formation -- should also be a significant benefit for Otton. Seattle ran 12 personnel on 29.5 percent of plays in 2022, a notable increase over the 17.4 percent clip the Buccaneers did under then-coordinator Byron Leftwich.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Competition expected from rookie

    Otton is joined on the tight end depth chart by rookie fifth-round pick Payne Durham, who recorded 56 receptions for 560 yards and eight touchdowns during his senior 2022 campaign at Purdue, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports. Otton was a first-year hit in 2022 while splitting time with veteran Cameron Brate, progressively earning Tom Brady's trust and finishing with 42 receptions, tops among rookie tight ends across the league. Brate is no longer on the roster, but Otton now stands to face competition for targets from another young position mate with receiving prowess in Durham, who boasts a large catch radius that could make him an especially good fit while working with either Baker Mayfield or Kyle Trask, two quarterbacks for which accuracy may not always be a strong suit. Nevertheless, Otton is expected to serve as the clear leader in snaps at the position thanks in part to his underrated blocking ability and knack for moving the chains -- 19 of his receptions in 2022 went for first downs.
