Start: O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
O.J. Howard has been big play dependent for fantasy purposes, but it’s starting to becoming something we should expect. He has shown over the course of his short career that he is capable of scoring long touchdowns.
Howard has a knack for getting behind the defense and stretching the field. He did similar things while at Alabama.
This is someone to have in your lineup as long as Ryan Fitzpatrick is under center. Fitzpatrick is taking plenty of shots down field and Howard is benefiting. It should be much of the same with the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting this weekend.
Pittsburgh’s defense is complete mess right now. They just allowed Travis Kelce to haul in seven catches, for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
Sit: Evan Engram, New York Giants
@ Houston Texans
Engram salvaged his fantasy football production Sunday night with a late 18 yard touchdown catch. Up until that point, the entire New York Giants offense look miserable. Their offensive line is a major problem which will make things harder for the pass catchers to produce.
The Giants face a tough test this weekend against the Houston Texans. They have a strong pass rush that will make life miserable for Eli Manning.
