Receiving skills put him in play as RB2. and TE1First 100-yard game of season last week, but still much too unreliable
Frank Stampfl
RotoExperts
 16 or more carries in 3 of last 4
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Just when everyone threw in the towel on Howard, he reached triple-digit rushing yards for the first time since Week 15 of last season. While the matchups have helped, he draws another bottom-12 rushing defense in the Packers, who have permitted 126.2 rushing yards per game and 4.6 yards per carry. He recorded 107 total yards in their Week 1 encounter, but beware trusting a player who is averaging 3.6 yards per run with 16 catches all season and no touchdowns since Week 9. He'll need an end-zone visit to contribute as anything beyond a middling non-PPR flex option.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Samuels should be starting again this week and he had 92 yards from scrimmage last week. That easily puts him in the TE1 discussion this week for leagues that allow him to be used at tight end. He is a RB3 / flex option at running back. The Packers are 15th against fantasy running backs, Howard is a low-upside RB3 option in a game that may not have much offense.
