O.J. Howard photo 12. O.J. Howard TB (at DET)
With Mike Evans leaving the game early on, the Bucs allowed Howard to play 68-of-78 snaps, his second-highest total of the season. He's seen 11 targets over the last two weeks and turned them into a rock-solid nine receptions for 134 yards. Among the 36 tight ends who've seen at least 30 targets this season, Howard ranks fourth in yards per target (9.4) behind only George Kittle, Darren Waller, and Jared Cook. He's been sucked into the Arians risk category with Ronald Jones. The Lions just happen to allow the fifth-most yards per target (8.52) to tight ends, as well as a 72.7 percent catch-rate and a touchdown every 15.4 targets to them. The only tight end who saw more than five targets and didn't finish as a top-12 tight end was Jason Witten, who's averaging 6.4 yards per target on the season. Knowing Evans will be on the shelf and that the Bucs can't run the ball; Howard should be on your low-end TE1 radar as someone who just might help when it matters most.

Jacob Hollister photo 13. Jacob Hollister SEA (at CAR)
Since joining the starting lineup, Hollister has seen a rather-high 42 targets over seven games. That amounts to 6.0 targets per game, which is a number that you should be comfortable starting a tight end every week with, especially when that tight end plays with Russell Wilson. The Panthers were able to keep Austin Hooper in check last week, but that hasn't been the case for much of the season. They've allowed 8.89 yards per target to the tight end position, which ranks as the second-highest mark behind only the Cardinals. Whatever it is, teams haven't targeted their tight ends very often, as the Panthers have seen a league-low 66 target to the position, which amounts to just 5.1 targets per game. The 13.3 yards per reception is the most in the league, while the touchdown every 22.0 targets is right around the league average. The matchup against the Panthers comes down to targets, so knowing Hollister has seen at least six targets in four of the last five games, he should be in lineups as a low-end TE1.

Ian Thomas photo 14. Ian Thomas CAR (vs . SEA)
So much for that timeshare talk. Thomas saw 10 targets against the Falcons with Olsen out of the lineup, hauling in five passes for 57 yards and a touchdown. He played 61-of-71 snaps, so you can say he's a full-time player. Stay tuned for updates on Olsen's status, but we'll go forward as if it's another week with Thomas as the starter. The Seahawks have allowed nine different tight ends to hit double-digit PPR days against them, with each of them finishing as top-14 options in those weeks. They're the opposite of the Panthers, as teams have gravitated throwing to tight ends against them, averaging 9.3 targets per game to the position (3rd-most). It's a recent problem for them, too, as Tyler Higbee finished with 7/116/0, Kyle Rudolph 4/50/1, Zach Ertz 12/91/1, ad Dallas Goedert 7/32/0 have shown over the last three weeks. If Olsen is out again, Thomas is back on the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 radar.

David Njoku photo 18. David Njoku CLE (at ARI)
It was the worst-case scenario for those who were looking forward to streaming Njoku this week against the Cardinals. He was activated and played in Week 14, but he was on the field for just 20-of-54 snaps and saw three targets, hauling in just one for four yards. That's hardly enough to give you confidence in starting him, even if it is the best matchup on earth for tight ends. The Cardinals have continually proven they're as bad as advertised against tight ends, as they've now allowed 10 tight ends to finish top-10 against them. They've each totaled at least 11.3 PPR points, which is a number that no other team has allowed more than eight tight ends to hit. Not just that, but seven of those tight ends were able to finish as top-three options on the week. The 2.44 PPR points per target they've allowed requires just 4-5 targets for your streaming tight end to hit value. Because of that, Njoku is on the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 streaming radar. He comes with plenty of risk, but what tight end doesn't?
