2022 Fantasy Outlook
Otton is the potential heir apparent to Rob Gronkowski, who announced his retirement in June. The Washington product displayed potential as a pass-catching asset during his time with the Huskies, recording a 91-1,026-9 line in 31 games. Assuming Gronk stays retired, Otton should have only veteran Cameron Brate as serious competition for reps as a rookie, as O.J. Howard walked in free agency this offseason. With Chris Godwin projected to miss multiple games to open this season, Otton may have a chance to make an early impact if he earns Tom Brady's trust, though the learning curve tends to be rough for rookie tight ends.

May have more opportunity
TETampa Bay Buccaneers
June 22, 2022
Otton (ankle) could see a boost in his overall opportunity in the wake of Rob Gronkowski's retirement earlier this week, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The rookie will first have to demonstrate his surgically repaired ankle is back to full health during training camp, but assuming that comes to pass, Otton should have an opportunity to make a mark relatively early in his career. Knight points out that the Buccaneers are likely to sign one of several veteran tight ends still on the market as insurance, but if Otton proves a quick study in the offense and pass-protection schemes, it's conceivable that he garners more snaps than originally planned with no dominant option at the top of the depth chart. Veteran Cameron Brate is currently the Bucs' No. 1 tight end.
