Howard is seeing steady targets, but they have't resulted in a ton of success. That could change this week, with the Falcons being decent against the run. This could lead to Tampa passing even more near the goal line, and Howard is their best red zone weapon left. He is a low end TE1 this week, based on his potential in this matchup.

O.J. Howard: Buccaneers 'very high' on TE in 2020

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht told reporters that the team is "more than excited" to see what tight end O.J. Howard can do in year-two of Bruce Arians' system. He added that the Bucs are "very high" on Howard.

Fantasy Impact

Howard was a notorious bust in 2019, entering the year as a projected top tight end only to fall out of fantasy relevance. He has the pedigree and phyiscal ability to be a star in the league, and he's shown flashes of brilliance, but it remains to be determined if he'll receive an opportunity in Tampa or if this was just lip service. He's currently the TE14 in our early expert consensus rankings.
