 Howard practiced on Wednesday and is a true questionable play for this week. However, he is not a great play even if he is ruled active, with the Giants playing pretty well against the run and being horrible against the pass. With Howard, you would simply hope for touchdowns, with there not being much upside with yards. That is not a situation you want to bank on your your fantasy playoffs, if you don't have to.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
If James Conner sits again, Samuels is a risky option. Ideally, you'd look elsewhere, as the Steelers have been erratic with their running back approach without Conner. He has RB4 appeal in PPR leagues.
