Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In his first NFL game, Hamler ran more routes than any other Broncos receiver. He's been mixed in the slot as well as the perimeter, though he's running the majority of them on the perimeter. That's a bit concerning, as the Bucs best cornerback Carlton Davis plays there, but it's worth noting that Davis has 4.53-second speed while Hamler ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash in pre-Combine testing. The Bucs did allow 14 pass plays of 40-plus yards last year, which ranked as the fifth most, so there's a chance Hamler gets behind the defense. If he keeps getting seven targets like he did in Week 2, Hamler is going to be someone to look at as a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.This is a timeshare, plain and simple. While Gronkowski has played 25 more snaps, he's only run five more routes than Howard. For the second straight game, Howard has out-targeted and out-produced him, though that didn't mean much in Week 2. Still, if you're considering one, it has to be Howard. Unfortunately, this isn't a very attractive matchup. The Broncos have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to tight ends, thanks to two Titans tight end touchdowns, but if you look closer, they've allowed just 5.18 yards per target to them, which ranks as the seventh-lowest number in the league. Justin Simmons has been one of the better cover safeties in the game, and Kareem Jackson was a former slot cornerback. Considering these two are in a timeshare, it's best to avoid, especially when we saw the floor last week in a plus matchup against the Panthers where they combined for one catch and 11 yards.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Hamler is in line for an increased opportunity with Sutton out for the year and he certainly has the talent and speed to make that opportunity count for fantasy football. With that being said, Hamler is more of a bench stash right now versus a reliable fantasy asset. Against this defense, it's going to be hard to trust him in your lineup. I recommend waiting a week and seeing what his involvement in this offense looks like without Sutton on the field.Howard is the receiving option in this Bucs TE room, but he's not necessarily someone that you can rely on week in and week out just yet. This situation is a mess for fantasy managers to try and figure out and it might be best to just leave Howard on your bench or even your waiver wire in 1TE formats.
