Pair of grabs in big win
Howard brought in two of three targets for 19 yards in the Buccaneers' 45-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
The athletic tight end logged a solid workload for the straight game -- 43 snaps -- and did more with the opportunity than during the Week4 win over the Patriots when he didn't crack the stat sheet over 50 plays from scrimmage. Howard's two receptions were still only his third and fourth of the season, however, and he now projects to potentially revert to some empty stat lines again if Rob Gronkowski returns from his rib injury in a Week 6 matchup Thursday night against the Eagles.
