It went from Hilton as the only show in town, to what looks like a full house. He'll now compete with Devin Funchess, Parris Campbell, Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle, and Nyheim Hines for targets. Even bigger, he just lost his superstar quarterback, Andrew Luck. This is a significant downgrade to Hilton's projection, as we've seen him play with Jacoby Brissett before. He's nothing more than a WR3 in fantasy leagues.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 field
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
He was WR 25 in half-PPR in '17 with QB Brissett replacing an injured Luck for the season. I expect Brissett and Hilton to both be better versions of themselves this time around in a much better offensive environment than it was in '17 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Hilton can be great, but his best days have always been with Andrew Luck, who is now retired. That can't be good. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Through his seven-year career, Hilton has finished inside the top 20 wideouts just 4 times and only once higher than #10. His upside is likely outside that top 10 being that he is 30 years old and sharing an offense with so many weapons. Add in a downgrade at QB and Hilton could end up as a WR3 by season's end.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hilton had only 76 receptions, but those went for 1,270 yards and 6 touchdowns. QB Andrew Luck's retirement is going to limit his big plays and he will likely be only a WR3 in an offense unable to stretch the field.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Hilton's outlook changes drastically with the news that Andrew Luck is retiring from the NFL. We've seen what happens to Hilton without Luck and it isn't pretty - he finished with just 966 yards, his only year below 1,000. It's a better offensive system now so Hilton should likely retain WR3 production with Jacoby Brissett, but drop him down your draft board quickly.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.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 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).
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
TY Hilton went 76/120 receptions/targets with 1270/6 in 14 games last season. This season he'll be Juju lite version, 90 receptions, which he's done before in 2016, 1500 yards, reached 1448 in 2016, and a career high 8 TDs. Why? The Colts are bringing back their entire offensive line for a second year which never happens in today's NFL and Andrew Luck is fully healthy. He is going to have time to throw, and that time is going to lead too even more TY Hilton bombs. He averages 16 Y/R in his career. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
As a result of a hamstring pull in week 4, Hilton missed week's 5-6, played on a limited snap count in week 7, then acted mostly as a decoy in week 8 before a week 9 bye. However, from week 10 on he posted a jaw dropping 917 receiving yards. If we take his average stat line from weeks 10-17, and extrapolate over a full season, it comes out to 100/1,834/4. Juju had the second most receiving yards over that stretch...with 163 less yards. Nick Sirianni and Frank Reich have done an amazing job with this offense, and the return of Doyle, plus the addition of Campbell should mean that no team can possibly double Hilton. He's going to have some mediocre weeks, but he's also going to win you a few on his own. I'm comfortable taking him at his current ADP.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.
