Jordan Howard expected to see short-yardage work with Eagles

Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice expects Jordan Howard to see short-yardage work for the Eagles in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Howard will be competing with rookie running back Miles Sanders for touches in the Philadelphia backfield this season. Howard’s veteran status could give him a leg up early on, but he has struggled as a receiver throughout his career, which obviously limits his fantasy upside. Still, Howard could conceivably push for double-digit touchdowns if he winds up as the Eagles’ goal-line back. His usage will be worth monitoring throughout training camp.

Jordan Howard traded to Eagles

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Bears have traded Jordan Howard to the Eagles for a sixth-round pick in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Schefter adds the deal could eventually become a fifth-round pick. Howard was a poor fit for coach Matt Nagy’s offense last year and there have been reports all off-season the Bears were looking to trade him. Philadelphia is an interesting landing spot for him considering it’s a good offense, but he still offers nothing in the passing game. Meanwhile the recently signed Mike Davis is set up for a bigger role in Chicago.

Jordan Howard trade discussions are "ongoing"

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports multiple teams have approached the Bears about a possible Jordan Howard trade.

Fantasy Impact

Schefter adds that discussions are "ongoing". The 24-year-old was not the best fit for coach Matt Nagy's offense last year so it isn't a surprise to see him on the trade block. Throughout his career Howard has actually shown flashes of promise running between the tackles, but his lack of receiving ability makes him entirely one-dimensional. He would have to land in a run-first offense with a great offensive line to maximize his fantasy potential.

Jordan Howard totals 35 yards in wild card loss

Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for 35 yards as the Bears lost to the Eagles 16-15 on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

It's the type of inconsistent performance we grew to expect from Howard this year. Howard was hyped up as someone who was going to catches passes this year, but that never fully materialized. Howard finished the year as a TD-dependent RB2 in fantasy. He rushed for over 100 yards just twice in 2018.

Jordan Howard scores twice in Bears win

Jordan Howard had 21 carries for 109 yards and two touchdowns to help led the Bears to a 24-10 win over the Vikings in Week 17. He added a five-yard reception.

Fantasy Impact

Howard finished the regular season with a bang by posting a season-high 109 yards and producing his only multiple touchdown game of the season. He ends the regular season with 250 carries for 935 yards and nine rushing scores. Howard also had 20 receptions for 145 yards on the year.
