Brown has started three games this season and caught seven passes for 72 yards. Jordan and Howard will see more playing time in Houston with Brown out, the story pointed out. Jordan is dealing with an ankle injury and while Howard caught two TDs on opening week, he's only had a 3-34-0 line over the past three weeks.
TB TE O.J. Howard - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 @ Washington Football Team
Rob Gronkowski returned for a bit in Week 8 before exiting after only playing six snaps. O.J. Howard didn't do a whole lot in Gronk's place, finishing 2-16 on three targets. Howard was also out-snapped by Cameron Brate, who saw four targets of his own. When Gronk is active, he sees pretty much every target. But with Gronk out, the Bucs split duties between Howard and Brate making both options unappealing. Howard isn't much more than a desperation play at TE in Week 10.
