Buccaneers Not Worried About O.J. Howard

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians didn't seem too worried about tight end O.J. Howard after he didn't see any targets in the passing game last Thursday. "The balls will come. We don't dictate who gets the ball, the defense does, so sometimes it will spread around for different people every week," Arians said. The good news is that Howard played the third highest snap percentage (92%) behind Jameis Winston and Chris Godwin in Week 2. The concerning part for fantasy owners is that Howard has just five targets in two games, which is the same amount as backup Cameron Brate, and Brate has one more catch. The Giants are allowing the sixth most fantasy points to tight ends (10.0) per game this year, making Howard a bounce-back candidate as a TE1 this weekend. If he doesn't get going this Sunday, it's time to panic.

Bruce Arians Thinks O.J. Howard Can Play Better

When asked about Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard's production through two games, head coach Bruce Arians said "he can play a heck of a lot better than he's playing." We'd agree with that, as Howard only has four catches for 32 yards through the first two weeks of the season. He wasn't targeted at all in Thursday's win over the Panthers. Arians has never really utilized tight ends in his offense, but Howard is one of the better talents the coach has had at the position and many figured Howard would break out in 2019. There's still time for the Bucs to get Howard going in the offense, but if he doesn't produce in Week 3 against the Giants, it might be time to panic.

O.J. Howard Not A Great Start

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard doesn't make a great start against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. Howard caught four balls for 32 yards on five targets in the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers. The Panthers are a superior team, and they can control the clock. The Bucs lost 31-17 last week, but they actually possessed the ball longer than the Niners. They could have trouble stopping the Panthers offense as well as moving the chains. The Panthers did allow Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee to score, but they kept Rams tight ends to five catches for 27 yards. Howard is worth owning, but the upside isn't there for this matchup.
