The flip side of succeeding with value players is failing with overvalued players. These are players that will not put up stats commensurate to their draft spot, and avoiding them is another of the important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out these players, we asked our staff to look through the top 150 players and identify players that should underperform their draft position.

O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay
Sigmund Bloom: Howard could be destined for big things, but it’s highly unlikely that he will arrive in fantasy leagues in his rookie year. Unless you count Mike Ditka, rookie tight ends rarely make a splash no matter how good they go on to be later in their career. Howard will share tight end targets with Cameron Brate, one of Jameis Winston’s favorite red zone targets, and the team also upgraded at No. 2 wide receiver with addition of DeSean Jackson. Howard will disappoint anyone who drafts him this year, but don’t worry. It will make him cheaper to draft next year, when he could start to fulfill his potential.
