Summary

After a breakout rookie season in 2016, Jordan Howard confirmed his status as a quality NFL starter in 2017 with more than 1,200 total yards and again showing strong ball security and the ability to hold up to a big workload. Howard was lackluster in overall success rate last season, but was above average inside the red zone. Howard did see regression with a substantial drop in yards-per-carry and his efficiency as a receiver was nearly cut in half to an anemic 5.4 yards-per-catch. Without a prototypically-sized challenger to his starting role, Howard projects as a sturdy volume and touchdown bet in 2018. (June 3)

Latest News

Bears | Jordan Howard has been used often (Mon Jul 16, 12:19 PM) - Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed the ball 528 times over the last two seasons, which is the fifth-most rushes in the NFL during that span.

Our View: Howard has been a top-10 fantasy running back during both of his seasons as a pro. That comes from his talent as an efficient and powerful runner, and it comes from his ability to handle a large workload. That's something he's done since his days in college at both UAB and Indiana. Howard should get around 250 carries this year, and this offseason he's been working on his hands to be a better receiver. Fantasy owners are currently taking Howard off the board at RB15 (3.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Bears | Chicago to keep backfield door 'spinning' (Tue Jul 10, 01:51 PM) - Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is expected to be the team's feature back per comments made by head coach Matt Nagy this spring, but Nagy also made it clear he plans to 'keep the door spinning' in the rotation, according to Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune.

Our View: With Tarik Cohen undersized at 5-6, Howard will keep the main role, but could lose third down touches to Cohen, who is a little more dynamic in that spot. Howard has back to back 1,000 plus yard seasons and saw his touchdown total jump from 6 to 9 last season, and is a solid running back who can handle a large workload. He is reliable fantasy starter whose ADP is coming in at 13th back selected and 21st player overall in drafts.
