O.J. Howard's 11.8 yards per target in 2018 ranks as the second-highest mark of all-time among tight ends who saw at least 40 targets. His mark of 11.1 yards per target in 2017 would rank fifth all-time, but he just missed the cutoff with 39 targets. His career mark of 11.5 yards per target is the best of all-time (since they started tracking targets). In short, he's a rock-solid presence when healthy, but he needs to stay on the field.

O.J. Howard out for the season

In a surprising turn of events, O.J. Howard has moved from possibly missing a game or two to being placed on the injured reserve. The Bucs are expected to use Cameron Brate as their starting tight end moving forward.

Fantasy Impact

O.J. Howard can obviously be cut and his direct replacement in the NFL is suddenly not only the best tight end pickup, but perhaps the best waiver wire pickup overall this week. With the pace and efficiency of Tampa Bay's offense, Brate should be regarded as a top 8 rest of season tight end for fantasy purposes.
