Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (knee, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 6. Howard may be able to play—hopefully this situation is cleared up by Sunday morning. If Howard is unable to play, Jameis Winston-favorite Cameron Brate projects to be a great start. Since last season, Winston has targeted Brate on 14.2% of his pass attempts and Brate has accounted for 14.7% of Winston’s passing yards and 30% of his touchdowns. If Howard plays, both tight ends will be playable, but it’s doubtful that they both produce quality fantasy lines. The Falcons have been pretty stingy against tight ends, but they did yield 4-38-1 to Tyler Eifert in Week 4 and gave up 6-88 to Saints tight ends in Week 3.

Scouting Report

Week 4 at Atlanta Falcons

Tyler Eifert is playing and that's an improvement already. He has been on the field at least 64 percent of the offensive snaps the last two games. Last week, he caught six passes for 74 yards. He hasn't caught that many balls since Week 8 in 2016. Eifert also had a season-high eight targets against Carolina.

Eifert will face Atlanta, who is ranked seventh in aFPA to tight ends. Even with the tough matchup, he seems to be playing like the old, healthy Tyler Eifert. Start him in Week 4 as a low-end TE1 against the Falcons.
