Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Makes sole catch count in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brate brought in his only target for a 15-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 34-29 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

O.J. Howard was ultimately declared active for the contest after coming in questionable with a knee injury, so Brate was expected to serve in a secondary role. However, it appeared he might make a bigger impact early on, when he started the scoring on the afternoon with a 15-yard scoring reception to cap off an eight-play, 75-yard opening drive. That would ultimately prove to be it for Brate, though, as he didn't see another target the rest of the day despite the fact that Jameis Winston put the ball up 41 times. He'll look to carve out more of a role in a Week 7 interconference battle against the Browns, although Howard's continued success and the team's plethora of other capable pass catchers is likely to make that difficult.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Expected to return to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brate will likely resume No. 2 tight end duties Sunday in Atlanta with O.J. Howard (knee) expected to return from a one-game absence, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After Howard exited early in the Week 4 blowout loss to the Bears with an MCL sprain, Brate stepped in to handle most of the snaps at tight end, finishing the day with three receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown. The Buccaneers benefited from a bye in Week 5, which appears to have given Howard sufficient time to recover from the injury. Though he's listed as questionable on the team's official injury report, Howard increased optimism about his availability by practicing fully Friday. Howard might face some restrictions as he works back from the injury, however, which could pave the way for Brate to play a decent amount of snaps even if he doesn't start.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Likely to start Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brate is expected to serve as the Buccaneers' lead tight end for at least the Week 6 game against the Falcons while O.J. Howard (knee) is sidelined, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.

Howard sustained a sprained MCL in Sunday's 48-10 loss to the Bears, with the team projecting their top tight end to miss 2-to-4 weeks with the injury. The timing of Howard's setback is rather fortunate for the Buccaneers, who are on bye Week 5 and could be without his services for as little as one game. With six catches for 63 yards and two scores through four games this season, Brate had already been managing a small role in the Bucs' potent passing attack. He should see a couple extra looks directed his way Week 6 as the team aims to fill the 4-to-5 targets per game Howard had been receiving.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Finds end zone in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brate brought in three of four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 48-10 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Brate has now scored in consecutive games after only being targeted twice and going catchless over the first pair of games. The fifth-year tight end could see a significant bump in snaps if the knee injury suffered by O.J. Howard on Sunday causes him to miss any time, but otherwise, his fantasy value as compared to the past two seasons appears to have taken a hit due to the latter's emergence in the early portion of this season.

Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Breaks through in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brate brought in three of four targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-27 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

Brate was able to finally get on the stat sheet in Week 3, after not having been targeted at all in Week 2 against the Eagles and failing to come up with either pass thrown in his direction in the opener against the Saints. The fourth-year pro's first catch of the season turned out to be a touchdown, as he hauled in a four-yard scoring dart from Ryan Fitzpatrick to give Tampa an early lead. Fellow tight end O.J. Howard did double Brate up on targets, however, and it appears the former will continue to have the biggest role in the passing game between the two for the time being. Brate will look to build on Monday's production versus the Bears in a Week 4 matchup.
