Cameron Brate +325 (Caesars)
Now that Rob Gronkowski and OJ Howard are gone from the Buccaneers, Cameron Brate is Tom Brady’s TE1.
Believe it or not, Brate had more red-zone targets last season than Mike Evans. He saw 20 looks in the red zone and had four touchdowns.
The Cowboys only gave up six touchdowns to tight ends last season, but they ranked 20th in yards allowed to the position.
For what it’s worth: In the five games that Gronkowski missed last season, Brate’s TD odds ranged from +140 to +220. We’re getting some extra value here.
Noah Brown +400 (BetMGM)
Going down the depth chart of Cowboys pass catchers, I’m taking Brown on Sunday Night Football.
Behind CeeDee Lamb, it gets dicey with Michael Gallup out and Jalen Tolbert potentially facing a smaller role than many anticipated weeks ago.
Brown played the fourth-most snaps of any Cowboys wide receiver in 2021, and the Buccaneers ranked in the bottom 10 in the NFL in both catches and yards allowed to opposing wide receivers last season.
Dak Prescott +600 (bet365)
For our final pick, we’ll stay with the Cowboys and take a longshot.
Coming off an ankle injury last season, Prescott didn’t run as much as he had in previous years. His production on the ground did increase as the season progressed. He even scored in the Cowboys’ playoff loss to the 49ers.
Prescott is as low as +275 at some books, but we’re getting a great number here at bet365.
