Andrew Gould

Howard's snap percentage declined for the third straight week (72.7, 62.2, 54.1, 51.4), and he took a back seat to Tarik Cohen after coughing up a goal-line fumble. (He returned in overtime after Cohen also lost a fumble.) He hasn't caught a pass in two games, and Cohen has caught seven in each of the last two. The Bears could also have to pass more against New England, so Howard is a riskier play whose stock is fading. Yet the current state of running back will require most frustrated investors to start him anyway in a week where four teams are resting. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cohen continues to be the more productive back in Chicago, Howard is a low-upside RB2 that continues to lose touches to Cohen.
