Marcas Grant’s Week 16 sleepers

Tom Brady has an affinity for throwing to tight ends. It was easy to say that when he was targeting Rob Gronkowski, but it’s held true for Cameron Brate and now Otton. Even Ko Kieft has a touchdown this year, and I’m still not convinced he’s a real person. TB12’s tight end target rate isn’t as high this year as in past years, but he’s not totally ignoring the position, either. Brady is making short throws at a higher rate than any other starting quarterback this season. That’s helped keep Otton in the fantasy conversation. He’s worked the short and intermediate areas of the field at a higher rate than almost every other Buc, with a route depth akin to the highly-targeted Chris Godwin. 

This week, Tampa heads west to take on the Cardinals. That alone puts him on the starting radar. You probably know this by now, but I’ll repeat it just in case. The Redbirds are the best matchup a fantasy tight end can have. They’ve allowed the most receptions, yards and touchdowns to the position. Combine that with solid usage for Otton, and the Tampa tight end should get some lineup run this week.
