  • O.J. Howard Has Little Appeal In Week 5

    Houston Texans tight end O.J. Howard was targeted a season-high five times last week against the Chargers, but he brought in just two of those for 27 yards. After catching two touchdowns in the opener against the Colts, Howard has just three receptions since. With Jordan Akins taking targets away from him, Howard's role is too tentative to consider him as a fantasy option against the Jaguars on Sunday. Jacksonville allows the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends.

  • O.J. Howard Disappoints In Week 2

    Houston Texans tight end O.J. Howard was a popular waiver wire add last week after he caught two touchdowns in the opener, but his performance in Week 2 against the Broncos might lead to him returning to those same wires. The Texans targeted tight ends on 10 of their 37 pass attempts, but just one of those targets went to Howard. Pharaoh Brown and Brevin Jordan had five and four targets, respectively, while Howard finished with just one reception for seven yards. It looks like Week 1 might have just been an anomaly.

  • O.J. Howard Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Houston Texans tight end O.J. Howard caught a pair of touchdowns last week against the Colts, but he was also only target on those two plays. Heading into Week 2 against the Broncos, Howard is an enticing fantasy option, but the lack of usage outside of those touchdowns last week is worrisome. He's a boom-or-bust TE2 play in fantasy this week.

  • O.J. Howard Catches Pair Of Touchdowns

    Houston Texans tight end O.J. Howard caught a pair of touchdowns in his debut for the team. That might sound like it makes him a top waiver priority at a shallow position, but the fact that Howard was only targeted twicecatching both for 38 yardsmakes him a risky option going forward. The Texans like to spread the ball out and not use their tight ends heavily, so while Howard getting the touchdowns is encouraging, it's too early to think that he'll be a reliable fantasy option.

  • Texans Sign O.J. Howard

    The Texans signed tight end O.J. Howard on Thursday. The 27-year-old was recently released by Buffalo and was expected to sign with the Bengals. However, he is now heading to Houston instead. The Buccaneers drafted Howard in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He began his career in Tampa Bay by recording 11 touchdowns throughout his first two seasons. Yet, he combined for only four over the next three years with the team. Nevertheless, there's a chance Howard could climb the depth chart, overtaking Pharaoh Brown and Jordan Brevin, so despite not having much fantasy value currently, that may change as the year progresses.

  • O.J. Howard Expected To Sign With Bengals

    The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to sign free-agent tight end O.J. Howard on Wednesday. The 27-year-old was recently cut by the Buffalo Bills but appears to have found a new home. He'll join teammate Hayden Hurst, who was signed by the Bengals earlier this offseason, adding additional depth for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. This offense is typically one we want to target in fantasy football, however, they already have an elite trio of wide receivers that includes Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higginsand Tyler Boyd. All three receivers will slot in ahead of Howard and Hurst, making it difficult for either to have a big role and contribute. Hurst will likely end up as the more valuable option, but neither player is worth targeting in standard-sized fantasy leagues.
