RB - MIA
RB Jordan Howard is expected to be the top candidate for the Dolphins goal line work this season, per Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.
Howard and Matt Breida will form a “thunder and lightning” pairing, where Howard offers power and Breida delivers speed, Schad added. The Dolphins will rely on Howard over Breida in goal line situations. Both backs are primed to have decent workloads and could provide solid fantasy value. Howard reportedly is 100 percent recovered from a shoulder stinger that sidelined him for the majority of the second half of 2019. The 25-year-old is currently 32nd among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Jordan Howard (shoulder) confirmed he is 100 percent healthy.
Howard got off to a nice start with the Eagles last season before a late-season shoulder injury slowed him down. Still just 25 years old, Howard signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Dolphins in free agency. One would still expect the team to bring in another back via the draft, however.
The Dolphins and Jordan Howard agreed to a two-year contract, worth $10 million, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Howard missed the last six games due to a shoulder injury in 2019. The 25-year-old logged 119 carries for 525 yards and six touchdowns across 10 games last season. Howard will most likely lead the Dolphins in carries in 2020, and with the move to Miami sees an uptick in fantasy value.
Eagles running back Jordan Howard, who missed six games with a shoulder injury before playing just one snap in a Week 17 win over the Giants, did not play in the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Despite being cleared for contact two weeks ago, it doesn't seem like Howard was healthy enough to contribute on offense. He will be a free agent this offseason, and it is unclear if he will be back in Philadelphia after the emergence of Miles Sanders.
Jordan Howard (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Giants.
Howard practiced in full on Friday and was cleared for contact following Thursday's session. After missing the last six games due to a shoulder injury, Howard will return for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Giants. His role for Week 17 is unclear at the moment, but look for Mile Sanders to once again lead the Eagles backfield in carries. Howard was averaging 13 rushing attempts per game the first nine weeks of the season. Due to the uncertainty of his role, Howard is a desperation flex for Week 17.
