O.J. Howard signs with Bills's Adam Schefter reports that the Bills are signing free agent tight end O.J. Howard, formerly of the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Moments after agreeing to terms with Von Miller, Buffalo also struck a deal with Howard. Through 17 games in 2021, the 6-foot-6 tight end hauled in just 14 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. However, he has shown much better upside in the past, as evidenced by the 1,456 yards and 12 touchdowns that he accumulated over the course of his first three pro seasons. Howard will likely open next season as the No. 2 tight end behind Dawson Knox, but that doesn't mean he won't see the field. Expect Buffalo to utilize multi-tight end sets so that they can deploy both weapons often.

O.J. Howard not targeted in Week 10

Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard was not targeted in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

It was another wasted outing for Howard. At this point, it is safe to say Howard's tenure in Tampa was a letdown. It is not happening for him with the Buccaneers.

O.J. Howard with three targets in Week 8

Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (TB) caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

A healthy Rob Gronkowski is the only fantasy-viable tight end on the Bucs. I need to emphasize the word healthy here. Howard had his one-game to shine a few weeks back and now he is once again fading.

O.J. Howard comes back to earth in Week 7

Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard caught 1-of-3 targets for nine yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Howard popped in Week 6 but came back down to earth in Sunday's win. The Buccaneers could get Rob Gronkowski back in Week 8.

O.J. Howard (ankle) officially active for Week 7

Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard (ankle) is active for Week 7 despite being listed as questionable.

Fantasy Impact

Howard (along with Cameron Brate) has been tasked with filling an expanded role due to Rob Gronkowski’s (ribs, lung) extended absence. The 26-year-old had his best game of the season last week, catching six passes for 49 yards and a touchdown. With both Gronkowski and receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) out this week, Howard falls into the TE2 range.
