    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 15 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Howard posted his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and he visited the end zone for the first time since Week 4 in Green Bay. Howard is healthy, he is holding off Tarik Cohen and he remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 12 at Philadelphia.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 2:26pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He also caught three passes for 19 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of his last three games and has received at least 21 carries in each of those three games. He can be a solid No. 2 running back when he faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 2:47pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 21 times for 65 yards in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Howard was the biggest beneficiary of the team's run-heavy attack in a game which didn't feature very many fantasy stars. He'll look to return to the end zone in Week 8 on the road against the Saints.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 8:47pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed a combined 55 times for 243 yards in the two games QB Mitchell Trubisky has started.

    Huddle Up: After an uneven start to the year, Howard has resumed his role as a workhorse back. Having Trubisky at quarterback should ensure that the Bears continue to lean on Howard going forward. Consider him a volume-based RB2 against a solid Carolina Panthers defense in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 2:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 167 yards on 36 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and has three touchdowns in that span. He will be facing a solid Carolina Panthers defense next week but can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 9:00pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard registered 19 carries for 76 yards in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 9, opposite the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: The rush attempts and yards were each the second-most logged by Howard in a game this season, so while it may have been unspectacular, it also wasn't a bad effort from the former fifth-round draft pick either. It's also worth noting that Howard wasn't targeted in the passing game -- with Tarik Cohen garnering only one throw his way -- in Mitchell Trubisky's first career start, so owners may have to eat a decrease in his receiving numbers with the rookie under center.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 9:49pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard carried the ball 18 times for 53 yards and a score in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. He added two receptions for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: Howard found pay dirt in garbage time to salvage his stat line, but the 2.9 yards carry tell the story of how he was bottled up for most of the game (and for the third time in four weeks this season). A potentially tough matchup with the Vikings is on tap, but he remains a viable RB2 with hope that the 'mini-bye' will help the Bears clean up some of their issues on offense.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 11:19am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was not listed on the team's Week 4 injury report in advance of its game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: A Monday injury report for Thursday games is a speculative one since teams don't practice the day after a game, but the reason this is notable is because Howard is known to have a shoulder injury and was seen favoring it Sunday. The most likely explanation is head coach John Fox's reputation for treating injury reports like state secrets and sometimes not being entirely honest with them. Despite Howard's Week 3 outburst, continue to treat him like a less-than-100-percent RB2 for now.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 5:04pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard posted 23 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, including the game-winner in overtime, and he added five grabs for a team-high 26 yards.

    Huddle Up: Howard was banged up last week and he shared the wealth with rookie Tarik Cohen in Week 1. This is the Howard fantasy owners have wanted to see, and it came against a strong defense. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 7:05am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been playing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Howard is expected to play in Week 3 but likely will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers run defense this week and may not be more than a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 1:07pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Howard was limited to seven rushing yards in Week 2 and will continue to share work with Tarik Cohen at running back. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 2:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Howard has struggled through the first two games of his sophomore campaign. You can't really sit him, but expectations need to be tempered due to his struggles and the emergence of rookie Tarik Cohen.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 3:32pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Howard had a disastrous Week 2, posting just seven yards on nine carries and he was unable to record a catch on his only target. The good news is that rookie Tarik Cohen ran for just 13 yards on seven rushes and he lost a fumble, although he did grab eight balls for 55 yards. Howard is dinged up, not doing a lot and he has Cohen to contend with. His fantasy star isn't as bright as it was in 2016. Suddenly he is a questionable fantasy play heading into Week 3 against the Steelers.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 1:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for seven yards on nine carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Howard received the most carries during the game but was not able to produce in the run game. He probably will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen moving forward and may only be a flex option next week.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:04am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Howard will continue to be the starting running back for the Bears but will be sharing snaps with Tarik Cohen. Howard rushed for 52 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 6:36pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is expected to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, but Campbell said Howard's snap count could be impacted.

    Huddle Up: Howard is shaping up to be a bit of risky play, but he is still worth using as a RB2 if he suits up. Meanwhile, Tarik Cohen looks like a solid flex play this week, especially in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 2:19pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: When healthy last week, Howard split the backfield touches in Week 1 with rookie Tarik Cohen. If Howard is unable to suit up, Cohen's already growing ownership percentage and his value will continue to skyrocket. Howard is a bit of a risky fantasy play for Week 2 at this point.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 11:53am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Howard was a surprising addition to the Bears' injury report yesterday. He had a relatively rough first game even though he did find the end zone. If he remains limited then he could be a game-time decision, but the ailment doesn't sound too serious. If he's active, start him.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 11:34pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was added to injury report for Wednesday, Sept. 13, as having limited participation.

    Huddle Up: Howard, the NFL's No. 2 rusher a season ago, underwhelmed in Week 1, totaling just 52 yards on 13 carries and, of course, dropping what looked to be the game-winning touchdown in the closing moments. Howard sustained the injury against the Falcons, but head coach John Fox didn't sound concerned earlier in the week. Unless things change expect Howard to be out there this Sunday looking for better results.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 3:30pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Falcons, and he added three catches for 14 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Howard did well, but he had 16 touches to 13 for rookie Tarik Cohen. This one could be a regular split with the way Chicago has lost receivers. Howard went from looking like a sound RB1 to a suspect No. 2. His stat line would have been improved had he not dropped the game-winning TD, though.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 2:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 45 yards on 12 carries in the preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Aug. 27.

    Huddle Up: Howard will be a focal point of the team's offense this season after he rushed for 1,313 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie in 2016. He should be considered a No. 1 running back in all leagues since he probably will receive plenty of touches.

  • Posted: 8/18/2017 4:07pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (eye) suffered a corneal abrasion during the team's walkthrough Friday, Aug. 18, and did not travel with the team for their preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Bears believe Howard's injury is minor.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Howard will be able to return to the field, but he likely will be back before the start of the regular season. Howard is coming off an outstanding 2016 season and will continue to be a focal point of the team's offense. He should be considered a solid No. 1 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/18/2017 9:25am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard recorded seven runs of 25 yards or longer as a rookie in 2016, but four of those possessions ended with field goals. It's part of the reason Howard spent parts of his offseason working on his acceleration. 'It's training. When you get to that (quality), it's more about track speed than football speed,' head coach John Fox said.

    Huddle Up: Howard has been busy this offseason, also undergoing eye surgery in an effort to improve his ability as a pass-catcher. Considering he has no viable threats to his workload, Howard should be one of the few true workhorses for owners to rely on in fantasy. He should be considered a midrange to low-end RB1 in most leagues.

  • Posted: 6/30/2017 2:04pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (eye) underwent eye surgery in May in order to improve his eyesight. He hopes the improved vision will help him as a pass catcher.

    Huddle Up: Howard is coming off a 2016 season where he posted 1,313 rushing yards but only had 298 receiving yards. He would have more value if he is able to be more involved in the passing game. Howard should be considered a No. 1 running back that likely will be selected in the first two rounds.

  • Posted: 6/14/2017 10:48am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard expects a larger role in the passing game this year after converting only 29-of-50 targets for 298 yards and one touchdown as a rookie.

    Huddle Up: Part of the reason why Howard hopes for more work is because he underwent off-season eye surgery to correct his vision, which probably was as big of a reason as anything as to why he led all running backs in drops. However, Chicago added explosive mighty mite Tarik Cohen in the draft and Benny Cunningham in free agency - two stellar receiving backs who will probably keep Howard's receiving ceiling fairly low. Regardless, Howard should remain a solid RB1 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 5/31/2017 10:23am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is 'noticeably slimmer' entering his second season after finishing second in the league in rushing as a rookie. Howard intends to play at 225 pounds in 2017 and hopes not to come off the field as much.

    Huddle Up: There may have not been a more surprising on-field success story in the NFL last season than Howard, who ran for 1,313 yards despite not really seeing regular playing time until Week 4. Tarik Cohen was added in the draft to give the Bears a bit of explosion out of the backfield, but Howard should have the early-down role to himself and could share passing-down work with Cohen if he shows some improvement as a receiver. Howard should be a rock-solid RB1 in all leagues.

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 5:20pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard set franchise rookie records with 1,313 rushing yards and seven 100-yard games, and he joined Walter Payton as the only Bears players to rush for more than 1,300 yards in a season while averaging at least five yards per carry.

    Huddle Up: Once Howard grabbed the starting gig, he didn't look back. He should enter the 2017 season as the lead back in Chicago and a RB1 in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 1/25/2017 4:19pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard scored all six of his touchdowns at home this season.

    Huddle Up: Howard won the starting running back job during the season and finished second in the NFL with 1,313 rushing yards. He likely will receive most of the work again next season and should be considered a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 8:14pm ET

    Chicago Bears rookie RB Jordan Howard rushed 23 times for 135 yards in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He did not have any catches or targets.

    Huddle Up: Howard ended up with back-to-back 100-yard games, and he hit the century mark seven times this season. Howard racked up 1,313 rushing yards with six touchdowns while adding 29 catches for 298 yards and a score. He came out of nowhere early in the season after Jeremy Langford faltered, and now Howard will head into 2017 as a legitimate RB1 in all fantasy leagues, likely going off draft boards in the first three rounds.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 4:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard ran 18 times were 119 yards and added a nine-yard catch in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins. He has topped 100 total yards in eight consecutive games and 10 times this season.

    Huddle Up: In what has been a lost season for the Bears, Howard has been one of the few bright spots as he has seemingly taken over the backfield. He was shaken up in the first half but received plenty of touches with the game decided in order to keep his 100-yard streak going. He'll try to extend it versus the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17 and will remain a RB1 for that contest.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 5:22pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 17 times for 90 yards with a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Green Bay Packers. He also hauled in four receptions for 23 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Howard went over 1,000 yards rushing in the game, and he scored his sixth rushing touchdown of the season. He has emerged as a tremendous low-end RB1 in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 8:47pm ET

    Chicago Bears rookie RB Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 86 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 77 yards in each of the past six games. He seized the starting job midseason and hasn't looked back. He has emerged as a must-start fantasy option across the board.

  • Posted: 12/9/2016 9:30pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was praised for his quick feet and vision by offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, and DE Akiem Hicks said Howard is always falling forward on his runs.

    Huddle Up: Howard has established himself as the workhorse in Chicago's backfield, and he could sneak into RB1 territory in Week 14 against a Detroit team he topped 100 yards against in Week 4.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 117 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in three of his last five games and his 32 carries were his most in a game this season. He will continue to be a main part of the offense for Chicago and should be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
