Buccaneers | Tom Crabtree could be offensive weapon

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Tom Crabtree will be watched closely by the team's scouts and coaches in minicamp this week to see how he's adjusting to the offense and QB Josh Freeman. Tampa Bay's shift from a West Coast-style of offense to more of a vertical passing attack has reduced the emphasis placed on the tight end. The Buccaneers believe that Crabtree has the ability to be a threat in the passing game, however, and he could prompt them to alter how much they involve the position.

Fantasy Tip: Tight end is a deep position and Crabtree would be low on the pecking order even if he proved the Bucs right, so until there's a lot more to this story, fantasy owners needn't monitor Crabtree.
