There will be some who are concerned about the after-effects of Kupp's ACL injury, but you shouldn't be one of them. With modern medicine players bounce back from them all the time. Throughout his two years in the NFL, Kupp has posted WR2 or better numbers in 47.8 percent of his games, which is better than the career marks of Jarvis Landry, Brandin Cooks, Keenan Allen, and T.Y. Hilton. He may lack the upside of some, but his consistency is great. He's a solid low-end WR2, but an even better high-end WR3O.J. Howard's 11.8 yards per target in 2018 ranks as the second-highest mark of all time among tight ends who saw at least 40 targets. His mark of 11.1 yards per target in 2017 would rank fifth all-time, but he just missed the cutoff with 39 targets. His career mark of 11.5 yards per target is the best of all-time (since they started tracking targets). In short, he's a rock-solid presence when healthy, but he needs to stay on the field
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Was the No. 14 WR in FAN PPG at the time he suffered ACL injury in Week 10 - avoided PUP and is on track to play in Week 1, reportedly running faster than he did pre-injury 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Kupp was excellent when he was on the field last year, leading the Rams' receivers in target share and seeing 12 red zone targets. But he's coming off of ACL surgery and the Rams may be cautious with him. When healthy, he's a solid WR2 and for now, and he reportedly looks explosive in camp. There's more upside with Kupp than with most WR2s, but the injury risk provides plenty of downside, too.Despite missing six games last year, Howard still finished as a TE1. He has as much raw talent as nearly anyone at the position and on paper, the subtraction of DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries should only open up more targets for him. But Bruce Arians' offenses have never focused much on tight ends, so it's a bit difficult to predict what we'll see this season. Still, given his talent level, Howard is a borderline top-five option at a thin position.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kupp isn't far removed from a torn ACL, but all reports out of camp are that he is even better than ever. Whether or not that is true is anyone's guess, but the fact of the matter is that he has huge upside if entirely healthy. He was the WR #2 prior to his injury.Howard may have finished as the TE13 last season but let's not forget that he only played 10 games and actually had more fantasy points per game than TE5, Jared Cook. Not only that, but Howard with get a full season of Jameis Winston who loves TEs nearly as much as anyone in the game. Howard breaks big plays and is a red-zone threat so it is within the realm of possibility that he ends up TE1 by season's end.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
"All his test scores, coming out of his breaks, agility, quickness, every test timed better than it was before he tore his ACL. It's incredible." @SmolaDSOJ Howard played roughly two-thirds of the offensive snaps during the first 2 years of his career. So far this preseason, he's been in on 21 of Jameis Winston's 22 snaps. @AdamLevitan
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Winston is most effective when throwing to his TEs. The biggest knock against Howard might be that Arians doesn't use his TEs, but Howard lined up in the slot or out-wide on 46% of his snaps last season (According to Graham Barfield).
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kupp only played half a season last year and he posted 40 receptions for 566 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL and he should be ready to pick up where he left off in Week 1 this year.Howard had only 34 receptions, but they went for 565 yards and 5 receiving touchdowns. If the Buccaneers ever figure out how to use him, they have one of the most physically gifted tight ends in the NFL that could be like the tight ends in the top-tier.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I will not be drafting Cooper Kupp this season. The Rams have said that he's going to be ready for week 1, but he suffered his ACL injury too late in the season to be back to his old self this quickly. For where he's going in drafts you need him to perform like he did to start last season. So the best case scenario is that he returns value...but he's not going to out produce his ADP...and he's far more likely to disappoint. There are still a bunch of studs on the board where he's going, take one of them instead.O.J. Howard is set up to have a monster season in 2019. With Jackson and Humphries gone there are a lot of targets up for grabs. This is a team likely to finish in the top 7 in both pass attempts and passing TD's, so taking one of the three clear top targets is smart. Even when I give him an extremely fair 17% target market share, Howard gets a projection of 68/1063/9. That sort of stat line has him right on par with the top tier of Kelce/Ertz/Kittle. Howard is one of the TE's I would target in the middle rounds.
