Draft note
by John Paulsen
Bruce Arians has a reputation for underutilizing the tight end position in the passing game, so the usage of Howard in 2019 is a bit of an unknown. Arians actually won’t be calling plays—new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich will have that duty—but Arians will surely have a heavy hand in designing the offense. Keep in mind that Arians hasn’t had a tight end of Howard’s caliber in his 14 years as an offensive coordinator or head coach. His most productive tight end was Heath Miller, who averaged 3.6 catches for 41 yards and 0.27 touchdowns in 74 games under Arians, though Miller’s best season (76-789-6) would certainly be a good season for Howard, who was in the midst of a breakout season when he injured his foot and ankle in Week 11. He was the No. 6 fantasy tight end at that point. Given Arians’ history, Howard is a bit of a risk/reward pick in the middle rounds, but it’s usually smart to bet on talent, and Howard has it.

TB TE O.J. Howard - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Carolina Panthers

O.J. Howard has been of the biggest fantasy letdowns of 2019. He had yet another disappointing game, finishing with one lone catch for 10 yards in Week 5. This week he faces a Panthers team he finished with zero points against earlier in the year. And he's not alone in struggling against Carolina. The Panthers are allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points to the position.
