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 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at New York Giants

Aside from his goose egg performance vs. the Bears earlier this year, O.J. Howard had his worst game of the season last week catching just one pass for 15 yards. Tampa Bay had several other receivers involved last week, which is bound to happen when there are so many weapons in a single offense.

Howard should be able to bounce back vs. the G-Men in Week 11. The Giants have allowed 50 or more yards to TEs in six of the last seven games. New York has only given up one score to the position all year, but that's more chance than anything else. Howard should be a strong TE1 play vs. the Giants.
