Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
OJ Howard saw the majority of the targets last week and was able to reel in the touchdown. The uncertainty of his role in this offense is concerning, but there are some rosters that desperately need a fill-in option. In this matchup, Howard's a fine streaming candidate. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As it turns out, Gronkowski led the Bucs tight ends in snaps. But does that matter? Howard ran just one fewer route than Gronk and totaled twice the targets (6 to 3), 25 more yards (36 to 11), and a touchdown in his debut with Tom Brady. You typically follow the snaps to production at tight end, but when the routes are the same, go with the more efficient one, and in this case, it's probably Howard. The Panthers were one of the best in the league at defending tight ends last year, largely in part to do with the fact that just two tight ends saw more than six targets against them all season. But again, this is a new defense with maybe eight new starters on it. All we have is Darren Waller's six-catch, 45-yard performance from last week. Knowing there are plus matchups all over the field for the Bucs, I would try to wait a week to see if a trend develops between these two before trusting either of them in fantasy lineups. Knowing Gronk was the only one who had chemistry with Brady, you'd have thought he'd produce more early on, but that wasn't the case. Howard would be my choice of the two right now. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Howard scored a touchdown in the opener, he has some TE2 appeal in a game that could evolve into a shootout.
