Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As of now, it appears Edelman will have Jarred Stidham throwing him the ball in 2020. Is that a good thing? We don't really know just yet, though his 9.2-yard average depth of target shouldn't be impacted by quarterback play too much. Unless you're expecting Mohamed Sanu or N'Keal Harry to hit 100-plus targets, Edelman should be safe to hit the century mark, even if the offense is less potent than in years past. But also don't forget to take his injury history into consideration, as the reward might not be worth the risk anymore without Tom Brady there.It seems like years since Howard has been a force to reckon with in fantasy football, but prior to the 2019 season that was ended with injuries, he'd posted 935 or more rushing yards in each of the previous three seasons. The issue with projecting that moving forward is due to his offensive line play. The Dolphins have what may be the worst line in football, while Howard has only run behind top-10 offensive lines while in Chicago and Philadelphia. Still, if you need a running back who's likely locked into 12-plus touches a week, Howard can fill a role on your fantasy team.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
 After one season with the Eagles, Howard now finds himself in Miami in what could be a resurgent offense under Tua Tagovailoa. He will split carries with Matt Breida but I expect Howard to get the majority of the goal-line work. He's a much better option in non-PPR.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Howard should be the lead back in a crowded RBBC in Miami this year, which would give him flex value with upside if they can improve the offensive line.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Edelman's chances of returning fantasy value certainly increased with the Cam Newton signing, but at this point of his career, he's nothing more than a low-end WR2/WR3.Howard will get the opportunity to be a starting RB again in 2020 in Miami. He's the clear option for goal line carries and this offensive line is drastically improved from 2019. Howard should be a solid RB2 option all season long in this offense.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Expect Howard to be the top choice for the Dolphins' goal line work this season.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Last year's PPR WR7 is available in the 8th round of drafts. HUH?! Edelman is one of the most consistent receivers around when he's healthy and while he now lacks Tom Brady, Jarrett Stidham would have been a great replacement given his proclivity for slot receivers. Sadly for Edelman lovers, Cam Newton has arrived and that will not only boost his ADP, it likely hurts his fantasy production. Newton won't use the 34-year-old receiver anywhere near as much, making Edelman a PPR certainty with less usefulness in non-PPR. Nevertheless, he's still a great sleeper if his ADP remains outside the first five rounds and I'd suggest he's a very solid starting option.After being drafted out of Indiana in the 5th round a few years ago, Jordan Howard has regularly surpassed expectations. He was sensational for the Bears in his debut season before dropping away along with the team's attack as a whole. A move to Philly proved he still had it as he held off Miles Sanders with superior play until injury crueled his season. Now in Miami's RB-wasteland and he's got a chance to do it all again. The message is clear, under-estimate Howard at your peril. With around 400 RB touches to go around, I expect Howard to lead the backfield with Breida taking the change-of-pace/receiving role. Take Howard in the late 8th round if you need a safe option but realise the upside is limited this time.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Howard is perpetually undervalued in fantasy football, in part because of his lack of success as a receiver. But over his four-year career, he's totaled 3,895 yards rushing, 30 touchdowns, and a 4.3 YPC average. Those numbers are more than adequate for fantasy purposes, especially considering Howard should get the bulk of the work for the Dolphins. While Matt Breida should siphon off some carries, Howard will likely be the primary ball carrier and the goal-line option, making him a Flex option in standard leagues.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Limped into the off season with injuries. Constantly exceeds expectations. Such little target competition(sorry Sanu). I'll keep waiting for something to give out and end up most likely avoiding him. A solid 82nd in Y/R. Not that he's ever excelled there but that doesn't play when the targets run out.I learned my lesson last year! Howard will be more involved than I like! Still likely to receive 150ish carries with a rookie drafted, whether we like it or not. Was pacing for 190 in Philly last year. The good news is he's an absolute dunce when it comes to pass catching and Miami targeted the RB a sneaky amount(99). It was just spread out through Drake, who left, and the Walton and LA(i)RDS of the world 150 attempts at a 4ypc clip with a handful of TDs would put him at 90 fantasy points. Your standard RB40 on the year
