The Vikings are the best fantasy running back defense in the NFL, Howard is a boom /bust RB2 that is safe to bench if you have better options. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Howard gained just 44 yards on 22 carries against the Browns, but he found the end zone twice to salvage his fantasy day. He should see another big workload next weekend against Minnesota, but the Vikings allow the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. The Vikings still could technically lose the No. 2 seed, so they're likely to play their starters for the majority of the game. Either way, Howard is in play as an RB2.

 This is one where I'm going to have to bite the bullet, as Henry didn't get the role I expected him to against the 49ers last week. Instead, the Titans decided to ride their 29-year-old running back, giving him 19 touches, which was more than double Henry's touch count. They appear content with mediocrity, so why should we assume it changes now? The Rams have been a matchup to target most of the year, though volume has been hard to come by, as three of their last four opponents ran the ball 20 or fewer times, so it's not shocking to see they're in the top-12 for fewest rushing attempts allowed. They have allowed a massive 4.61 yards per attempt on the year (third-most) with 11 touchdowns (seventh-most), so the hope is there for both Titans running backs.
