Summary

Howard arrived in a big way last season, rushing for over 1300 yards despite starting the season as a backup and playing on one of the losingest teams in the NFL. This year, he won't be on any waiver wires, or even be on the draft board beyond the second round in most drafts. While Howard's passing game role is unlikely to increase greatly from his 29 receptions for 298 yards last year due to the addition of Tarik Cohen and Benny Cunningham, he should get more than 252 carries with a full season as a starter. The Bears aren't going to magically turn into a top team with a poor quarterback situation this year, but there's no reason to think that Howard can't overcome that much in the same manner he did last year. Consider him a high floor low RB1, but one that lacks the ability to break into the top 3-5 backs. (May 21)

Bears | Jordan Howard eyeing more work as receiver (Wed Jun 14, 01:48 PM) - Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard expects a larger role in the passing game this year after converting only 29-of-50 targets for 298 yards and one touchdown as a rookie.

Our View: An important note for fantasy owners here. In PPR leagues, a larger role in the passing game for Howard would give him more value. Howard has a current ADP of RB9 (2.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
