TE - TB
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate caught all three targets for 26 yards in a 31-9 Super Bowl LV victory against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Brate was the secondary tight end for the Buccaneers on Sunday but was efficient with his targets, converting all three for 26 yards in a 31-9 blowout win over the Chiefs. The sixth-year tight end caught 28 receptions for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the 2020 regular season and will likely take on a similar reserve role if Rob Gronkowski decides to run it back with Tom Brady in 2021. Unless Brate goes to a different team in need of a primary tight-end option, fantasy managers will likely be able to get Brate off league waiver wires in most redraft leagues if he returns to Tampa Bay with a similar offensive roster.
Bucs TE Cameron Brate (back) is officially active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Chiefs.
Brate was expected to play despite popping up on Thursday's injury report with the back injury. The 29-year-old might be at less than full strength, but he'll be out there against Kansas City today.
Bucs tight end Cameron Brate is listed as questionable with a back injury but is expected to play in the Super Bowl, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Brate missed practice on Friday after being added to the injury report earlier in the week, but it sounds like he avoided a serious injury and is expected to be able to play on Sunday vs. the Chiefs. If Brate is downgraded on Sunday, the Bucs will have Rob Gronkowski, Tanner Hudson, and Antony Auclair available at tight end.

Brate exited Thursday's practice with a back issue and didn't practice on Friday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Brate "plans to play" on Sunday, but he could be shaping up as more of a game-time decision. If Brate is inactive it should mean an increase in targets for Rob Gronkowski.
Cameron Brate was a limited participant in practice on Thursday with back discomfort, according to Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport later noted that Brate was pulled out of practice due to "an abundance of caution." But as of now, he plans to play. The Bucs are playing it extra safe, and rightfully so. Brate has 11 grabs for 149 yards and a touchdown through three playoff games. If the tight end is able to get in a limited session on Friday, he should be good to go for the Super Bowl on Sunday. If he is unable suit up then Rob Gronkowski would be the biggest beneficiary in the Bucs passing attack.
