If you've been hibernating since the end of the football season, you may have missed Howard being traded to the Eagles for a measly sixth-round pick. While some saw this as a value, Howard is an afterthought now that the Eagles spent a second-round pick on Miles Sanders, the more complete running back. Doug Pederson has allowed one running back to play more than 42 snaps in a game during his three years in Philadelphia: Darren Sproles, a do-it-all running back. Howard topped that number five times while with the Bears in 2018 alone with absolutely zero competition for the early-down role. He's more likely to be on waiver wires than he is returning to stud status.

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.
