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 and identify players that should underperform their draft position.

O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay
Chris Feery: As a first-round draft pick, O.J. Howard certainly has the tools to become a huge factor in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, that may not happen right away. Adjusting to the NFL game can take awhile for rookie tight ends, and that includes players like Howard that bring an impressive skill set to the table. Add in the fact that the Buccaneers have a solid tight end already in the form of Cameron Brate, and Howard may not even be the most productive tight end on his own team in 2017. Don’t let his talent cause you to overpay for him, but Howard deserves consideration as a late round flier.
