    Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has been knocked for a perceived deficiency on runs out of the shotgun formation, but 2018's stats don't back that up. Last season, Howard rushed 138 times for 570 yards (4.13 yards per carry) out of the shotgun and ran 111 times for 364 yards (3.28 ypc) when the quarterback was under center.

    Huddle Up: Howard will be fine running out of any formation, but of more concern to his fantasy value is the Eagles' recent tradition of rotating multiple backs. Put him down as a solid RB3 for now with definite RB2 potential.

  • Posted: 3/28/2019 5:38pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 28, in exchange for a 2020 sixth round draft choice, according to a source. The draft choice has a chance to become a fifth-round draft choice based on undisclosed conditions.

    Huddle Up: The Bears have Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis as their main running backs at this point, but they likely will look to add another running back in free agency or the 2019 Draft. Owners will need to monitor the situation, but Cohen and Davis should have fantasy value in 2019.

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 28, in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source. The draft choice has a chance to become a fifth-round draft choice based on undisclosed conditions.

    Huddle Up: Howard should take over the starting running back job for the Eagles but likely will share playing time with the other running backs on the roster. He has posted solid numbers over the past few seasons and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 3/26/2019 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard still has a role with the Bears, but he could still be traded nonetheless, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

    Huddle Up: Trade talk involving Howard has waned recently, but he's seemingly not as valuable to Chicago's offense as his counterpart Tarik Cohen. It's not that Howard has necessarily under performed. He's scored 25 total times and averaged over 1,312 yards in his first three seasons. He's a solid standard RB2 assuming he stays in Chicago.

  • Posted: 3/21/2019 6:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is unlikely to have a role in the offense if he remains with the team in 2019, in the opinion of Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

    Huddle Up: Howard has always struggled to make an impact in the passing game, and after regressing as a between-the-tackles runner last year, the Bears don't have much incentive to feature him in the offense. Feel free to take a flier on him in the final rounds of drafts, but don't count on him to be a contributor for your fantasy squad.

  • Posted: 3/7/2019 10:48am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is the subject of ongoing trade discussions as of Thursday, March 7, per league sources, after multiple teams approached the Bears at the NFL Scouting Combine to inquire about a possible deal.

    Huddle Up: Howard has been a top-10 fantasy back in all three of his seasons in Chicago, but last year he hit career season lows in rushing yards (935), touches (270) and scrimmage yards (1,080) while matching his 2017 total of nine TDs. He'll likely still be involved in a RB split if he's traded, but he'll be a RB2 consideration regardless given his nose for the end zone (25 TDs in three seasons).

  • Posted: 2/27/2019 4:54pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is reportedly on the trade block, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

    Huddle Up: After initially seeing more work in the passing game than he ever did his first two seasons, Howard became more of a glorified early-down and goal-line pounder as 2018 progressed. He did pick up the pace as the season came to an end, but he's still a one-dimensional running back playing for a coach in Matt Nagy who wants his runners to contribute in all areas. If he is traded this spring, he'll likely bring back a Day 3 pick.

  • Posted: 1/16/2019 9:58pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard holds little value if the team decides to shop him around during the offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who points out Howard is in the final year of his rookie deal and that running back is one of the NFL's most replaceable positions. Biggs believes Howard's greatest value in 2019 would be as depth for the Bears.

    Huddle Up: While Howard's nine TDs were nice, his deficiencies in the passing game made him a less-than-ideal fit in Matt Nagy's offense, and it seems his days in the Windy City are numbered despite logging 250 carries last year. With his yardage and yards per carry dropping every year, Howard's value entering next season remains in flux.

  • Posted: 1/6/2019 5:22pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for just 35 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Howard ran for just 935 yards and 3.7 yards per carry, both career lows after eclipsing the 1,100-yard mark in each of his first two seasons. He tied a career high with nine rushing scores, however, and remains one of the most durable backs with 47 out of a possible 48 games played in his first three NFL seasons. He'll once again be a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 8:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 21 times for 109 yards and two touchdowns and caught one pass for five yards in a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: The Bears have been pounding the ball with Howard more in recent weeks, and he has scored in three straight games and topped 100 yards in two of the last four contests. Overall, Howard underwhelmed for fantasy owners this year, but he's gaining steam and could be a sneaky option in playoff contests.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 7:51pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 53 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 17 yards in a 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Howard has seen his workload increase the last four games, and while it has boosted his floor a bit, he still isn't running for a ton of yards. Consider him a flex play against the Vikings in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 3:43pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard ran 19 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers and he added a 15-yard catch.

    Huddle Up: The Bears leaned upon Howard heavily, as he had 20 touches to 10 total touches for Tarik Cohen. Howard remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 16 on the road against the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 9:46pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard carried 19 times for a season-high 101 yards and added a two-yard reception in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Howard's revival was just the most recent part of a week in which seemingly nothing went according to script in the NFL. With the Rams self-destructing on a regular basis, Chicago was able to pound away with the third-year back on a night in which neither offense seemed to handle the bitter cold particularly well. Howard failed to score for a fifth straight game in Week 14, however. It will be difficult to trust him as anything more than a flex option in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 6:54pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 16 times for 76 yards and caught one pass for four yards in a 30-27 loss to the New York Giants in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: It was Howard's best rushing performance in several weeks, and while he continues to see plenty of carries on early downs, it is only translating into flex-caliber production.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 1:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 13 yards on seven carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Howard received less than 10 carries for the first time this season and has rushed for less than 25 yards in two of the last three games. He will continue to have a role in the running game but may only be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option moving forward.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 8:31pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard ran 18 times for a game-high 63 yards in the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings and he added a two-yard catch.

    Huddle Up: Howard didn't tear it up, but he was able to manage 3.5 yards per tote while serving as the closer with the team leading. He remains more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12 against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 3:00pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 11 times for 21 yards in the Week 10 win against the Detroit Lions and he had just one grab for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: It's a disappointing result for Howard's fantasy owners, especially since his team scored 34 points and rolled offensively. He'll try to rebound next week against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11, but that's not a particularly attractive matchup.

  • Posted: 11/10/2018 7:03pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has scored at least one touchdown in three straight games heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Detroit Lions, and the Lions are allowing the second-most yards per rush in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: The yardage hasn't been there for Howard this year, and he has topped 70 yards rushing just twice. That being said, the juicy matchup and his role near the goal line make him a solid RB2 option.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 2:34pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 47 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Howard has recorded four touchdowns in his last three games but has rushed for at least 70 yards only twice this season. He will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues most weeks.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 5:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 22 times for 81 yards and a touchdown in a 24-10 win over the New York Jets in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: It was Howard's best performance since rushing for 82 yards in Week 1, and he benefited from the Bears leaning on the ground game to hold a lead. His lack of involvement in the passing game gives him some bust potential, but Howard can be a RB2 in a winnable game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 4:11pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the New England Patriots and he had a catch for nine yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Howard hasn't had a 100-yard game, but at least he was able to return to the end zone for the first time since Week 3 against the Cardinals. He remains more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 8 against the Jets.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 3:24pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 14 times for 69 yards in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Howard lost a fumble in the red zone in regulation and really did nothing until the game went into the overtime session. He still underachieved for his fantasy owners. He'll try and bounce back in Week 7 against the visiting New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 10/9/2018 11:30pm ET

    The Philadelphia Eagles could make a move to acquire Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard, according to John Clayton, who characterized Howard as a sleeper candidate for the Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Howard is averaging a dismal 3.2 yards per carry this season and had just 11 touches in Chicago's last game as Tarik Cohen gets more involved in the offense. Still, Howard has more carries (64) than the rest of the Bears combined (52), and it seems unlikely Chicago would move a cheap asset at a time when they're sitting in first place in the NFC North.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:19pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 25 yards on 11 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Howard is off to a slow start this season but probably was not used much in Week 4 because of the team's big lead. He should receive a solid amount of touches each week and can be a No. 2 running back most weeks.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 10:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard ran for 61 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries and added 20 yards on two receptions in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Howard's longest run was 17 yards, meaning he gained 44 yards on his other 23 carries. He saved his day by converting from a yard out in the third quarter, but his efficiency is starting to become a concern. Despite a new and improved supporting cast that was supposed to open up running lanes for him, he's averaging 3.4 yards per carry and not getting many running lanes to run through at the moment. Howard should be poised for a rebound effort in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 9/18/2018 3:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will 'probably' be given more carries going forward, according to Matt Nagy. Nagy added that the Bears won't plan a certain amount of passes or carries in any particular game, they'll simply 'play it out as is.'

    Huddle Up: The 14 carries Howard tallied in last night's contest isn't a huge concern. What is concerning are the 35 yards gained from those 14 carries. Still, Howard has averaged 18.5 touches per game through the first two weeks of the season. Keep plugging him in as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 9:12pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 14 times for just 35 yards in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17 while adding three grabs for 33 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Howard totaled 17 touches, but he was mostly spinning his wheels in a game which turned out to be a defensive slog. He'll likely have a lot more success in Week 3 on the road against the Arizona Cardinals, a team which allowed three rushing TDs to Todd Gurley in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 6:43pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed for just 13 yards on seven attempts at halftime of the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Howard has had trouble getting going, as has the rest of the offense, but the Bears lead the game 10-3 at the break. Howard also has an 18-yard reception, the longest play from scrimmage for Chicago tonight.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 9:11am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will stay on the field on third down this season, according to head coach Matt Nagy. 'Well do different things with (Howard) and well keep him on the field on third down - Ive told you that before,' Nagy said.

    Huddle Up: This doesn't mean Tarik Cohen won't be the primary third-down back or that Howard will see more snaps in those situations, but it's a good sign for the latter nonetheless. Nagy has been consistent Howard will get some run on third down, so owners should probably expect something more than his career-high 29 catches from 2016 this season. He is shaping up to be a safe RB2 with RB1 upside in the late second round this summer. Will

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 9:26pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed nine times for 32 yards in a 24-23 preseason win over the Denver Broncos Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Howard's struggles as a receiver have been documented, but he's still ticketed for plenty of touches and a proven 1,000-yard rusher. He's a low-end RB1 in standard formats.

  • Posted: 8/7/2018 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (knee) banged his knee in practice recently but is fine, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Still, it would be surprise to see him play Thursday, Aug. 9, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell.

    Huddle Up: The Bears won't risk anything with their starting running back. Howard should be good to go for the regular season opener and can be selected as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 in Nagy's promising new offense.

  • Posted: 7/21/2018 7:12pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard 'can play all three downs,' according to head coach Matt Nagy. 'We're going to do that,' Nagy said. 'We're going to use him and we're going to use other guys on first and second down when we need to.'

    Huddle Up: While Howard will undoubtedly see some targets out of the backfield, Tarik Cohen figures to see plenty of time on passing downs. Howard is still a low-end RB1 or strong RB2, but he is unlikely to have the every-down impact to join the ranks of the elite fantasy backs.

  • Posted: 7/16/2018 9:19am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed the ball 528 times over the last two seasons, which is the fifth-most rushes in the NFL during that span.

    Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 1,100 yards in each of his first two seasons and will continue to receive plenty of touches. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/10/2018 10:51am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is expected to be the team's feature back per comments made by head coach Matt Nagy this spring, but Nagy also made it clear he plans to 'keep the door spinning' in the rotation, according to Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune.

    Huddle Up: Given the expected improvement in the Bears' passing game, Howard's rushing attempts will almost certainly decline from the 276 he had in 2017. This report is just further evidence Tarik Cohen is primed for a substantial role. With that said, Howard is the only 'big back' Chicago has and has proven to be a very good runner, so he's going to get the work at the goal line in what should be a much better offense this season. He may come with more volatility than usual, but he's still a solid RB2 option.
