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.
