Another impressive playoff effort

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-21

Otton secured five of eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 31-23 divisional-round loss to the Lions on Sunday.

On the heels of a career-best showing in the wild-card win over the Eagles, Otton put together a solid encore Sunday that included the Buccaneers' second-most receptions and receiving yards on the afternoon. The second-year tight end also tied for second in targets and hauled in a two-yard scoring grab just before halftime for his first career postseason touchdown. Ottonm who'll head into the third year of his rookie contract in 2024, put together a relatively ordinary 47-455-4 line across 17 regular-season games; however, his combined 13-154-1 tally in two playoff games serves as proof he's capable of functioning as more than just a short-area, complementary option in the team's passing game.

Career-best showing in playoff win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Otton brought in eight of 11 targets for 89 yards in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night.

Otton was the surprise leader in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, and by a wide margin at that, arguably the single-most unexpected individual performance on either side during Tampa Bay's dominant win. Otton's totals were all career highs as well, as he continuously exploited Philadelphia's linebackers and safeties. The second-year pro could be busy again in Sunday's divisional-round battle against the Lions, considering Detroit also had plenty of trouble defending the tight end position this just-completed regular season.

Solid efficiency in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

Otton secured two of three targets for 30 yards in the Buccaneers' 9-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

While Otton's numbers look unremarkable on the surface, they were actually noteworthy when considered in the context of how quiet a day it was for the Buccaneers' air attack and the fact Otton had failed to clear 16 receiving yards in four of the previous five contests. Otton will now look to make an impact in Monday night's wild-card matchup against the Eagles after producing a 4-58 line on seven targets in a wild-card loss to the Cowboys last season as a rookie.

Underwhelming numbers in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Otton secured two of six targets for 10 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-13 loss to the Saints o Sunday.

Otton tied for the team lead in targets with Chase Edmonds but did little with them, leading to his fourth sub-20-yard outing in the last five contests. Otton's sub-standard production down the stretch has made him a virtual fantasy non-factor heading into the regular-season finale against the Panthers.

Minimal production in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Otton secured his only target for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 30-12 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Otton saw a notable downturn in receiving yardage after producing a 2-44 line in Week 15, with Sunday's tally serving as his second lowest of the season. The second-year tight end is still the primary pass-catching option at the position and played a season-high 71 snaps against the Jaguars, but rookie Payne Durham did outpace him in the victory by recording a 25-yard grab on his only catch.

Two big catches in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Otton brought in both targets for 44 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-20 win over the Packers on Sunday.

The second-year tight end contributed a pair of 22-yard receptions -- both coming on a late third-quarter drive that culminated in a Buccaneers touchdown -- showing more downfield chops than in his typical shorter-area role. With Sunday's production, Otton tied the 42 catches he posted as a rookie in 2022, and he set a new career high by pushing season yardage total to 408 yards. Otton only had Week 14's two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in the two games prior to Sunday, so his boost in yardage was a welcome sight for fantasy managers rolling with him in any playoff contests. The 2022 fourth-round pick next takes aim at the Jaguars in a Week 16 home matchup.

Finds end zone in Week 14 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Otton brought in two of five targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 29-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Otton tied multiple teammates for second on the team in receptions, and he was also on the receiving end of an 11-yard touchdown pass from Baker Mayfield with 31 seconds remaining that turned out to be the game-winning score. Otton had been blanked altogether in Week 13 against the Panthers, but Sunday's trip to the end zone, his fourth of the season, helped make up for it to an extent on a critical week of the fantasy season.

Blanked despite robust role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Otton did not draw a target over 61 snaps in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers.

Otton was blanked on the stat sheet for only the second time of his career, the first having come in his first NFL game against the Cowboys back in Week 1 of last season. The catchless performance came out of nowhere and is certainly an outlier, considering Otton had recorded at least four receptions in five of the previous six contests. The second-year pro should have a very good chance of atoning in a Week 14 road matchup against a Falcons team that's allowed a robust 75-760-3 line to tight ends over 12 games.

Four catches in Week 12 loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-26

Otton secured all four targets for 45 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-20 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

The second-year tight end finished tied with Trey Palmer for second on the team in receptions and with Chris Godwin for the same slotting in receiving yards. Otton now has back-to-back four-catch tallies and at least that many receptions in five of the last six contests overall, giving him a serviceable floor heading into a Week 13 home matchup against the Panthers.
