Howard received an astounding 36 carries last week against the Ravens, turning them into 167 yards. He's obviously not going to see that workload again this weekend against Carolina, but he's received no fewer than 18 carries in any game over the last four weeks, and has three touchdowns over that span. The Panthers stop the run well, but Luke Kuechly may not play after sustaining a concussion last week. If he's forced to miss the game, Howard is a mid-tier RB1, but he's no worse than a low-end RB1 even if Kuechly suits up.

Jordan Howard piles up 167 yards on the ground versus Ravens

Jordan Howard rushed 36 times for 167 yards in the Bears' 27-24 win over the Ravens in overtime Sunday. He added one catch for nine yards on one target.

Fantasy Impact

Howard was a workhorse in Chicago's win over Baltimore. He failed to find the end zone, but put up 176 total yards. The Bears are going to continue to lean on Howard to ease the transition of Mitch Trubisky to the NFL. Howard is the clear lead back in Chicago and should be started with confidence as an RB1.
