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.We knew big play regression was coming for Cohen in 2019, though it hit him more than anyone thought possible. Did you know that Cohen posted RB1-type numbers in 31.3 percent of his games in 2018? That ranked 12th among running backs. His lack of big plays crushed his hopes in 2019, as he went down to just 6.3 percent. Still, his floor stayed intact, highlighting he's still the same player. There's an in-between 2018 and 2019 outcome that's likely in 2020. He's never going to be a workhorse running back, but he's going to beat his current ADP.
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.Cohen enters 2020 as one half the Bears backfield duo. As usual, Cohen's value will come primarily from the passing game with the Bears QB situation in limbo that could make things difficult for Cohen. He's a low-end flex play in full PPR formats.
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.Cohen had a down year last season (like most others in the Chicago offense), but it was largely just his lack of big plays. He's a lock for at least 70 catches, which makes him someone you can start as a Flex play in half- and full-PPR leagues. He's not going to cut into David Montgomery's carries very much, but he won't need to greatly outperform his draft position.
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
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.Cohen struggled last season, along with the rest of the Chicago Bears offense. If Nick Foles is the starting QB, this offense is going to stay on schedule and Cohen should see a dramatic increase in efficiency. There's a very real chance that Cohen bounces back into the RB2 conversation this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Expect Howard to be the top choice for the Dolphins' goal line work this season. 
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.Tarik Cohen was awful in 2019, averaging 4.4 yards per target as the Bears offence capitulated. For reference, most pass-catching backs average 6 or higher and the worst I could find was Royce Freeman's 5.1 last year. That's how bad Cohen was. Let's be clear though, Cohen is not a bad player. With Nick Foles now distributing the rock it's very possible Cohen rises back to PPR stardom as a weekly RB2 with flex usage in half-ppr. I'll personally have very few shares as Cohen has zero true upside but if you need a safe weekly PPR starter, here's your man.
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
