Summary

O.J. Howard elevated in his role as a second-year tight end in 2018, nearly doubling his receptions per game and still averaging a robust 16.6 yards-per-reception as a big play maven. Howard's ankle injury derailed his season finish, limiting him to 10 games, after logging at least 50 yards in 8-of-10 games to begin the season. Cameron Brate was clearly a secondary option to Howard, despite being a quizzical free agent resigning last offseason with Howard's draft capital investment. DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries' departures in free agency leave 179 targets unaccounted for and Howard, along with third-year wide receiver Chris Godwin, the most likely uptick candidates in passing game volume for 2019.
