Fantasy Impact:

As feared, Howard’s MRI results confirmed he tore his Achilles during Sunday’s Week 4 win over the Chargers. He will miss the rest of the 2020 campaign. The former first round pick hauled in 11 receptions on 19 targets for 146 yards and two touchdowns over four games in 2020. Howard will rehab and look to fully recover before the start of the 2021 campaign. Cameron Brate and Rob Gronkowski will handle tight end duties for Tampa Bay with Howard sidelined.
