So, Howard is alive after all? I talked about this last week when I said he's going to go off at some point while on someone's bench or on the waiver wire. While five catches for 61 yards doesn't exactly constitute as "going off," it's a step in the right direction. Now going to play against the Colts defense that's allowed eight different tight ends turn in a performance with four or more receptions. No tight end has topped 73 yards, but they've constantly allowed a lot of receptions underneath. This all goes back to their zone-heavy scheme allowing receptions but containing the big play. That's not great for someone like Howard who's not used as a possession-style tight end. He's a risk-reward TE2 at this point who's disappointed but knowing the Bucs will have some trouble running the ball consistently, Howard has some appeal.

Howard put together one of his most productive games of the season last week, in a game where the top two WRs were held in check. We can't assume they will be limited two weeks in a row, and we really cannot begin to predict that there will be any kind of consistency for Howard at this point in the season. So yes, he is a chance to repeat last week's performance. He certainly has the talent, but we he's only a volatile TE2 option this week.

Howard has been such a disappointment that it may make you cringe, but if you need a streaming tight end this week, he is likely the best option available in your league. Yes, he comes with risk, but there is also considerable upside that no other available tight end can offer.

Teased again last week. No way you should start him based on one game
