C. Brate - TE
Cameron Brate caught 3-of-5 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.
Brate has out-caught Rob Gronkowski 11-2 this postseason. He is the pass-catching option right now with Gronk cleaning up as a blocker. Brate will still be no higher than fourth on the targets totem pole for Super Bowl LV, and will probably be fifth or sixth.

S. Miller - WR
Scotty Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.
With Antonio Brown (knee) out, Miller got more run, and he responded by scoring a 39-yard touchdown in the dying moments of the first half. For whatever reason, the Packers went to man defense in an obvious zone situation on 4th-and-4 from the Pack's 45-yard line with six seconds remaining. The greatest player in NFL history, Tom Brady, easily spotted what would prove to be the game-winning score. With Brown likely to return for Super Bowl LV, Miller won't be a legitimate DFS consideration.

Rob Gronkowski caught a 29-yard pass in the Bucs' NFC Championship Game win over the Packers.
Gronkowski's 29-yard gain on a fourth quarter tight end screen was his lone target. Being asked to bang about as a blocker this postseason, Gronk has taken a pass-catching backseat to Cameron Brate. Gronk will be more name than game as a Super Bowl DFS play.

AJ Dillon rushed three times for 17 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Bucs, adding a 13-yard reception.
The No. 62 overall pick of the draft, Dillon eclipsed 31 yards rushing only once all season. When he did, it was a memorable 21/124/2 Week 16 effort in the snow against Tennessee. Dillon's early-season problem was Aaron Jones' hot play. His late-season problem was the coronavirus, which laid Dillon low for over a month. A truly massive power back, Dillon lived up to his pre-draft billing as a unique talent even if it was less often than expected. With Jones and Jamaal Williams both headed to free agency, there is a good chance 22-year-old Dillon will be the Pack's lead back in 2021, but a lot needs to happen before then.

Jamaal Williams rushed seven times for 23 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Bucs, adding four receptions for 22 additional yards.
Like Aaron Jones, Williams is headed to free agency. Unlike Jones, Williams won't command a pretty penny. Consecutive Packers coaching staffs have fallen in love with a back who gobbles up snaps and holds his own on all three downs. Williams is not a different-making talent, but competency like his cannot be taken for granted from a No. 2 or 3 back. Williams will probably be back with the Pack, but even if Jones departs, it won't be as the No. 1. AJ Dillon is the next man up in this backfield.

Robert Tonyan caught 4-of-4 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Bucs.
With the postseason score, 26-year-old Tonyan finishes with 12 in 18 2020-21 games. A monster effort for a 2017 UDFA who entered this season with 14 career grabs. Tonyan's advanced age for a player with such a limited résumé will be viewed as a limiting factor in Dynasty leagues, but he is hardly the first tight end to break out in his mid-20s, especially one who was an undrafted free agent. A bigger question might be Aaron Rodgers' future with the Packers. Provided Rodgers is back, Tonyan will have to be taken seriously as a top-eight TE1 as a massive target who made big plays a habit this season.

Allen Lazard caught 3-of-6 targets for 62 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Bucs.
Sidelined for six games by a core muscle issue, Lazard still nearly matched his 2019 career highs by corraling 33 balls for 451 yards and three scores during the regular season. He added seven receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown during the playoffs. A huge target over the middle of the field, Lazard is probably close to a finished product at age 25, but he's certainly capable of being an above average No. 3 wideout. He probably shouldn't be a No. 2. An exclusive rights free agent, Lazard will be back with the Pack.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 4-of-6 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Bucs.
The 100-yard game was just the fourth of Valdes-Scantling's career. The highlight was a 50-yard touchdown where he got a step on Carlton Davis down the right sideline. MVS is always a 70-yard score waiting to happen. The problem is the drops and mental mistakes. They were less frequent in 2020 as he rolled to new career highs with 680 yards, 20.9 yards per catch and six touchdowns. Headed to free agency but already going on 27 years of age, MVS will be a fascinating case on the open market. It is possible he is ready to be paid like a Breshad Perriman-type talent.
