Bucs' Top 3 Offensive Players of 2016

Posted Jan 11, 2017

Pro Football Focus ranks the Bucs’ top offensive players from the 2016 season.

1. WR Mike Evans

After being selected as their top wide receiver for the 2016 season, it should come as no surprise that Mike Evans was PFF’s top-rated Buccaneer on the offensive side of the ball. Evans caught 96 passes for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2016, earning a spot on PFF’s All-Pro team, a spot on the Associated Press’ All-Pro team and a trip to his first Pro Bowl. He was in the top six in the league in touchdowns, receptions and receiving yards. Evans earned a grade of 93.3 on the year. He was the Bucs' only offensive player to earn a rating of 90 or higher.



2. G Ali Marpet

Marpet earned a rating of 84.5 this season, making him PFF’s No. 14 guard in the league. He started every game of 2016 at right guard for the Bucs, earning a nearly identical grade in run-blocking (84.4) as he did in pass-blocking (84.1). Marpet’s 1,135 snaps were the fifth-most of any guard in the league. He was the Bucs’ top-rated pass-blocker and run-blocker.  


3. TE Cameron Brate

With a rating of 82.8, Brate was the Bucs’ third-best offensive player, according to PFF. He finished the year with 57 catches for 660 yards and eight touchdowns, which were tied for the league-lead among tight ends. He was No. 12 in the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards among tight ends as well. Per PFF’s rankings, Brate was the No. 7 overall tight end in the league. He was also No. 7 in terms of his pass-catching ability. Despite his success, Brate was not selected to the Pro Bowl.

Also listed: OT Demar Dotson (4), QB Jameis Winston (5) and RB Jacquizz Rodgers (6). For the full rankings, click HERE.
