Lineups
The Dolphins had the worst rushing offense in the NFL last season and wasted no time in addressing the issue as they brought in Howard and Matt Breida. I expect both players to be involved and I have them two spots away from each other in my 1/2-point PPR rankings. Howard is more of a plodder and he won't catch the ball very much, but he'll presumably get the bulk of the red zone work. The upside isn't really there, but Howard is a nice insurance piece if you're worried about your early-round running backs.The Dolphins' backfield was far from a fantasy goldmine last season - it was the lowest scoring group of running backs on the year. Jordan Howard and Matt Breida will help their real-life offense, but in fantasy, it's difficult to project either of them having a massive role. Breida is one of the fastest players in the NFL and he is a capable pass-catcher, so he has the higher upside than Howard if he gets more work than most expect.

Howard is expected to enter the season as Miami's lead back - while his game has limitations, he's arguably as effective an inside-zone runner as there is in the NFL. There's a chance that he'll be utilized more as a receiver than he was in Philadelphia. 
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 realize 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 offense 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.
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
 An under the radar player that Miami seeked out. Keep an eye on him as someone you may kick yourself for burying completely
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Great producer when given the ball throughout his career. Likely lead guy in the committee with Breida, but offers limited upside due to lack of receiving work.Great athlete and efficient player ever since stepping on the field in the NFL. Offers a potential pass-catching role that Howard doesn't posses on the Dolphins. Should be opportunity in the committee to be fantasy relevant and be efficient with his touches.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
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.Breida finds himself in Miami after being apart of a draft-day trade and should now be in a position to lead the Dolphins backfield. Problem is, the Dolphins backfield has been one of the least fantasy productive backfields in the league over the last few years. That being said, Tua Tagovailoa could change everything in Miami. Breida is an interesting name to keep an eye on late in drafts.

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.

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.

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

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.

Strong landing spot in MIA, especially with the line beefed up in the draft. Breida was a nice "lightning" complement added to Howard's "thunder," but he's in line for 250+ touches in an offense that could sneaky light it up if Chan Gailey still has it (and if Tua is the real deal).Miami was arguably the most "available" volume across the league. Breida will be a great "lightning" complement to Howard's "Thunder"

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.
