The Facts: According to PewterReports's Trevor Sikkema, Brate and Jameis Winston's chemistry is going to be tough to dethrone. Even if rookie O.J. Howard gets comfortable and shows his flashes of talent during training camp, it might be more difficult than we thought to see him as a solidified first-team player, but in a good way. Brate and Winston look comfortable together.
Diehards Line:And that's worth noting. ... Last season, Brate tied San Diego's Hunter Henry for the NFL lead among tight ends with eight touchdown receptions while finishing second on the team in receiving. In fact, since Week 11 of the 2015 campaign, Brate has caught 74 passes for 864 yards and 10 touchdowns over the course of 22 games. Those totals rank 13th, 13th and tied for second, respectively, among all NFL tight ends during that span. So, while Brate's value does takes a hit with Howard coming on board, assuming he'll fall completely off the fantasy radar might be premature, especially with HC Dirk Koetter talking about increasing the team's use of 2-TE sets this fall.
