O.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 fieldRemember when Engram finished his rookie season as the No. 5 tight end? Well, he did that because the volume was there. He saw 115 targets that season because of the injuries to Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall. Those guys are both gone, and while Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate remain, those guys aren't going to see the target share of Beckham. Not only did Engram's target-share dip last year, but he also dealt with some injuries, leading him to finish outside the top-10 in his sophomore season. The expectation should be that he'll see 100-plus targets in 2019, which is something only 4-5 tight ends can say
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Engram is a great athlete with red-zone chops. If Eli Manning wasn't under center I might have him 4th.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
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.Engram played only 11 games last season, but had solid if unspectacular production when he was on the field. Engram's numbers have been substantially better whenever a Giants' wide receiver misses time, and considering that Odell Beckham Jr. is gone, Golden Tate is suspended, and Sterling Shepard is dealing with a thumb injury, Engram offers plenty of value, particularly early in the season. His upside may be capped by Eli Manning (unless or until he is replaced by Daniel Jones), but he still makes one of the best options after the top tier of tight ends is off the board.

OJ 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).Engram saw 125 targets and put up a 64/722/6 line in his ROOKIE season. Remarkable when considering how much rookie TEs struggle. Of course it helps that he saw 125 targets, but if he can put up those numbers as a rookie, he can certainly improve in his third season on a team devoid of weapons. Last season when OBJ was out, Engram averaged 5.5/80/0.33.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Seemingly has a bunch of upside because he should see easily 100 targets, but Eli is throwing him the ball, which also limits his upside. Solid choice if you miss out on the big three TEs but you have to spend a high pick on him and he also has injury history.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
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.With Odell being traded to the Browns, Engram once again finds himself as the top option in the passing game. He'll still need to compete with Shepard, Tate, Saquon...and...maybe...Corey Coleman for targets, but he's going to get all he can handle. He's also going to be used heavily in the red zone. Engram has averaged just under one red zone target per game in his two year career, but that should go up in 2019. Not only his it his third season (the general breakout season for TE's), but aside from Saquon, he's the only real red zone threat they have. Tate has never been a red zone guy, and while Shepard was given a lot of targets inside the 5 last season, we shouldn't expect him to see many while Engram is healthy. Ingram is one of the few receivers with 80/1000/10 upside.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.Engram was injured for part of the season, but when he was healthy, he was solid once again, ranking 7th among all tight ends with 9.4 half-PPR points per game. The draw in Engram, of course, is the fact that Odell Beckham left in free agency, and while he has always been great, Golden Tate fills in and is also a target hog. When Engram had so many targets two years ago, Roger Lewis, was the #2 wideout so it is a much different scenario now than it was then.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Engram really struggled early in the year when QB Eli Manning was not playing well. If they can find an effective quarterback in the NFL Draft, Engram has huge bounce-back potential.
