O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Howard had four receptions (on eight targets) for 46 yards against the Detroit Lions. He’s come alive some in recent weeks, with at least that aforementioned yardage and five targets in three straight games. With Buccaneers’ wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin out for Week 16 with hamstring issues, Howard is set to continue to be well-involved again.
The Houston Texans entered Week 15 allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to tight ends (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR scoring), then Titans’ tight end Jonnu Smith had five receptions for 60 yards while adding a random 57-yard run against them on Sunday.
Tampa Bay’s wide receiver group is being thinned by injury on a weekly basis now, with Scotty Miller also suffering a hamstring injury against the Lions. With at least a handful of targets coming his way, Howard is on the list of tight ends to add for Week 16 (and probably Week 17 too).
