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.Breida's coming over to Miami from San Francisco and will be the compliment to Jordan Howard in this backfield. Breida's electric with the ball in his hands and he's shown the capability of being valuable for fantasy football in the past, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy. The Dolphins will aim to keep Breida's carry count light, which should help his longevity and durability this season. If that's the case, he should be borderline relevant and could be a solid bench option to plug in on bye weeks. He's a solid RB4 this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Expect Howard to be the top choice for the Dolphins' goal line work this season.Breida has flashed big-play ability throughout his career thanks to his 4.44 speed (92% according to playerprofiler.com) and 99% burst (playerprofiler.com). His career 5.0 ypc and 8.4 ypr reflect that ability. Health and fumbling issues (four fumbles on 384 career carries) are the only things that could prevent him from claiming the top spot on Miami's depth chart. @MrHill9169
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
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.Still somehow only 25, the injury-prone Matt Breida moves to the Dolphins without an injury-free season under his belt. Honestly, I'm not even sure he's had an injury-free game. He will likely fall into a change-of-pace/receiving role in a Brian Flores offence that doesn't use its RBs enough. Hopefully that changes with two NFL-calibre runners now on the the books but I wouldn't have high hopes for Breida this year. He's likely to spend most of the year on your bench and if you need to use him, you're in big trouble (or Jordan Howard is injured).
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.There are a lot of fantasy owners expecting Jordan Howard to be the lead back in Miami, though if I'm being honest, Breida may be the better option, and he's much cheaper. While health has been an issue for Breida, he's performed when given opportunity and will get most of the passing-down work in 2020. Staying on the field has been and will continue to be an obstacle.
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
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 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Howard should be the lead back in Miami this year, which would give him flex value with upside if they can improve the offensive line.
