Huddle Up: Langford entered the season with the No. 1 tailback job, but shaky play early on, an injury and the emergence of rookie Jordan Howard left Langford fighting for crumbs down the stretch. He will enter 2017 as a backup, and as such his fantasy value is rather minimal.

Huddle Up: Langford suffered an injury, lost his starting job and now he is behind rookie Jordan Howard for the starting job and fighting Ka'Deem Carey for scraps. Langford should not be used for fantasy purposes at this point.

Huddle Up: Langford should suit up against Tennessee in Week 12, but he is nothing more than handcuff for fantasy owners with Jordan Howard headlining Chicago's backfield.

Huddle Up: Rookie Jordan Howard stole the show in this one, and Langford was forced to battle Ka'Deem Carey for scraps. Langford's fantasy appeal is very low going forward, but he'll have two more weeks to rest up his ankle and get back to 100 percent. He could still be useful for fantasy owners down the stretch, but Howard likely needs to take a big step back for that to happen.

Huddle Up: The Bears' muddled backfield is about to get a bit messier. Ka'Deem Carey appears to be on equal footing with rookie Jordan Howard, while Langford was the starter before his injury. Expect Langford to eventually work his way back to leading the committee, although it is hard to see any of them enjoying fantasy success anytime soon with games against the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers sandwiching the team's Week 9 bye.

Huddle Up: Jordan Howard will get the start again, but he's facing a tough run defense and will be running behind a hampered offensive line. Howard is still worth a start, but expectations should be lowered Thursday night.

Huddle Up: It's unclear exactly when Langford will be able to return, but Jordan Howard has done well as the starter in his stead. Howard does have a tougher matchup this week, however, against the Green Bay Packers. Plus, the Bears just lost one of their starting offensive guards. Howard should still be started, but he's a low-end RB2 at best this week.

Huddle Up: Jordan Howard has mostly played splendidly in the absence of Langford. John Fox and the Bears will have a tough decision on their hands when Langford is ready to return, but Howard is comfortably in RB2 territory going forward.

Huddle Up: The reason the designation is notable is because Langford hasn't so much does practiced since suffering his high-ankle sprain in Week 3. Head coach John Fox gushed about Jordan Howard's Week 4 effort against the Detroit Lions, suggesting the rookie has a chance to steal the starting job with another strong game or two. Howard should see enough volume this week to be a solid RB2.

Huddle Up: Rookie Jordan Howard is the heir apparent while Langford is sidelined. While he is still unproven, Howard has shown signs of starter potential. He also plays a Detroit Lions defense that just surrendered over 100 rushing yards to Eddie Lacy. Howard is involved in the passing game, too, so he's not a bad option going forward in PPR and non-PPR leagues and particularly in daily contests next week.

Huddle Up: Langford showed increased physicality in the preseason, but head coach John Fox thought he left yards on the field in Week 1 and appears to have resorted to his favored committee approach since. If Langford is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, rookie Jordan Howard may have just received his chance to become the new lead back in Chicago. With that said, it is difficult to recommend him as anything more than a flex given the Bears' current state of affairs.

Huddle Up: With Langford on the mend and Ka'Deem Carey inactive, rookie Jordan Howard will carry the load the rest of the game unless Langford has a miraculous recovery.
