Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate is a "heck of a player" and will still be involved in the offense despite the addition of TE O.J. Howard, according to general manager Jason Licht. "In our offense and a lot of offenses in today's day and age, you have two tight ends," Licht said.
Fantasy Tip: Brate will undoubtedly lose targets to Howard and DeSean Jackson, and his chances of being a TE1 in 2017 have disappeared. That being said, his impact in the red zone could keep him in the TE2 conversation.

Fantasy Tip: Godwin needs to work on his route running, but he has the physical tools to develop into an NFL starter. He is worth stashing in keeper formats, but it will probably be a couple of years before he makes an impact for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers passed on RB Dalvin Cook in the first round, in part, because of this, according to the source. Martin still has a ways to go before he can make a comfortable RB2, and he still has three games left to serve on his suspension. He'd be a good RB3 in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers have added another weapon in their passing game with Howard, but he may not start right away with Cameron Brate on the roster. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 tight end in 2017, but he should be a solid pick in keeper leagues since he has the potential to be a starting fantasy tight end in a few years.

Fantasy Tip: Brate is coming off a career year in which he caught 57 passes for 660 yards and eight touchdowns. The eight touchdowns were tied for most among tight ends (Hunter Henry). Assuming Brate stays healthy and maintains his starting role, he'll be in the running for TE1 status again this year.

Fantasy Tip: Evans had a monster 96-1,321-12 season last year, but he had very little help. He might not receive 175 targets again with DeSean Jackson in town. However, that addition should free up Evans more, and he's in the low-end WR1 mix in fantasy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent CB Jude Adjei-Barimah, LB Adarius Glanton, WR Adam Humphries and WR Freddie Martino signed their tenders Monday, April 17. Restricted free-agent QB Ryan W. Griffin also signed his tender.

Fantasy Tip: Brate broke out with a 57-660-8 year last year, but there are concerns whether he can repeat that. The Bucs really didn't have anyone to throw to besides Mike Evans, who was drawing double coverages. Now they've added DeSean Jackson to open things up. So temper expectations a bit, but Brate is a low-end TE1 option in fantasy.
