RB - PHI
Week 17 Outlook
Eagles running back Jordan Howard rushed four times for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers.
The Eagles have not been running the ball much in 2020, and starting running back Miles Sanders only received 10 carries on Sunday. But Howard looked at home in Philadelphia in limited snaps, averaging 4.8 yards per carry thanks to a long run of 11 yards.
The Philadelphia Eagles have elevated RB Jordan Howard from the practice squad to the active roster for Week 13 against the Packers.
Howard spent the earlier part of the season as the goal-line back for the Dolphins before his release. Now he’s back with the Eagles and is likely to take on a similar role as a goal-to-go type back. You’re likely still starting Miles Sanders in most situations, but Howard’s presence on the active roster certainly isn’t great for Sanders and his inability to find the end zone.
The Eagles signed RB Jordan Howard to their practice squad.
Howard had some success in 10 games with the Eagles in 2019, but he isn't expected to serve as anything more than RB depth this time around. Howard appeared in five games for the Dolphins earlier this year, running 28 times for a whopping 33 yards. He isn't a recommended add for fantasy purposes.
The Eagles are expected to sign free agent RB Jordan Howard to the team's practice squad Thursday.
Howard will reunite with Eagles after spending the 2019 season with them. He will will serve as an emergency backup RB behind Miles Sanders, Corey Clement and Boston Scott. Howard has run 28 times for 33 yards this year and is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
Field Yates of ESPN reports the Eagles are bringing in RB Jordan Howard for a visit.
Howard spent the 2019 season in Philadelphia. He then signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins this offseason and was recently released. He won't carry any fantasy value if/when he signs. Howard has run 28 times for 33 yards this year.
