One of the more talented tight ends in the league, but also someone who is going to play second fiddle to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs have said they'll be running a lot more 2TE sets, but it remains to be seen. With the other receiving options they have ahead of Howard, it's tough to see a path to consistent production. If Gronkowski were to miss time, Howard would jump into the TE1 conversation.

O.J. Howard: 12 personnel will be Bucs' base offense

Bucs coach Bruce Arians says 12 personnel will be the team's base offense.

Fantasy Impact

This means Tampa Bay will have two tight ends on the field most of the time. Arians even said we could expect them to play three at once here and there. It makes sense from a position breakdown point of view, as the Bucs have three tight ends capable of starting on most teams. Expect all three of Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate to see targets on a week-to-week basis. This news also means that Chris Godwin will play less in the slot than he did last season.
