Thomas has registered 554 yards and four touchdowns in four home games. The Eagles ranked 23rd in passing defense before losing cornerback Ronald Darby to a torn ACL. Sidney Jones may play for the first time since Week 6, but he won't be nearly enough to stop this season's WR3 from wreaking havoc inside the Superdome. He's the ECR's top-ranked WR for good reasons. Howard has logged just one more snap than Tarik Cohen over the last four games, turning a featured role into a clear timeshare. While he has also deposited four touchdowns during that period, he has totaled just 208 yards (with only two catches for 20 yards) while averaging 3.2 yards per carry. He's a touchdown-dependent RB2 (at best) facing a Vikings defense that has permitted rushing scores to just two running backs (David Johnson and Alvin Kamara) this season. Following a string of convincing wins, a more competitive opponent makes Cohen the preferred Bears running back in all formats.
Mike Tagliere

 We've watched the Bears ride Howard over the last three weeks, as gamescripts have been in their favor as seven-plus point favorites in each game. Because of that, he's totaled 47 carries to Cohen's 18 carries, but that time is coming to an end this week. The Vikings are going to be the most competitive team they've played in a while and their run-defense has allowed just 3.66 yards per carry on the season (6th-lowest) with two rushing touchdowns (2nd-lowest). In the two games he met them last year, he totaled just 85 yards on 28 carries without a touchdown. Knowing that Howard has seen exactly five targets over the last six games, he's nothing more than a mediocre RB3 option this week.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Eagles secondary is a disaster right now, Thomas should continue being one of the elite fantasy receivers in the NFL this week. Howard goes against a Minnesota D that has allowed the seventh fewest rushing yards to running backs this year. Howard is a low-upside flex play.
