2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: O.J. HOWARD TO BE BLOCKER FROM START

When looking at early ADP's in 2017 fantasy football drafts, it seems a bit high that rookie Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard is being picked on averaged in the tenth round of 12-team leagues.  Having not even played a down yet and joining a team with a very good and established pass-catching tight end in Cameron Brate, Howard is being overdrafted by more than a little.  This point was drive home Tuesday when it was reported that Howard at least initially will be employed more as a blocker and that Brate will continue being the featured tight end in the passing game.  This makes sense as Brate and QB Jameis Winston developed a tremendous rapport last season and there is no reason to mess with success so to speak.  For those who haven't drafted yet, knock Howard down a few pegs and target Evan Engram if you want a rookie tight end on your roster.  Meanwhile bump Brate up a few pegs as he is severely underrated right now.
