O.J. Howard's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect O.J. Howard to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 87 projected fantasy points puts him at #11 behind Jared Cook and ahead of Eric Ebron. He has averaged 7.97 fantasy points in his past 11 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 6.2 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #12 ranked tight end. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 96%, he is the #5 most highly owned tight end. O.J. Howard is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #10 fantasy position rank.
