Summary

The Dolphins gave Howard a two-year contract which would indicate confidence that the shoulder injury which cost him six of the last seven games of the 2019 season was not a concern. However, they acquired Matt Breida as well. While the two are not duplicate backs and Breida has durability concerns, it's clear the team wanted insurance. Howard will likely get the carries for at least the first two downs, though he may give way to Breida for the short yardage carries the physical former Niner is good at. All this leads to Howard as a potential flex or high end third fantasy running back. (May 6)

Dolphins | Jordan Howard expected to lead (Tue Aug 11, 12:01 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is expected to carry the rushing load in 2020, in the opinion of beat writer Cameron Wolfe. Wolfe expects Howard to receive 50 percent of the backfield touches.

Our View: Howard is going to be the banger on the roster. He'll soften up defenses on the whole was a battering ram between the tackles. When it comes to catching the rock out of the backfield, Matt Breida will be the back the Dolphins turn to.

Our View: Howard should be the lead back when it comes to carries in 2020. He's a powerful back who can grind down an opponent as the game goes on. Howard should be replaced on passing downs with Matt Breida.
