Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard didn't do much in Week 6. He ran the ball 13 times, gaining 49 yards. Howard's 3.8 yards per carry average wasn't anything special, and he added nothing in the passing game. Still, he clearly ran ahead of rookie Miles Sanders, who only carried the ball three times for six yards. Howard should continue to work as the running portion of the Eagles running back tandem, but he's somewhat touchdown dependent in his role and much more valuable in standard scoring than in PPR.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard rushed for 49 yards on 13 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Howard saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped this week but has received at least 10 carries in each of the last four games. He appears to be the top option in the running game for the Eagles but may only be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard has taken over the Eagles backfield but will face a tough challenge in Week 6. With the Eagles on the road to take on the Minnesota Vikings, Howard will be a solid RB2, but with limited upside thanks to the Vikings Defense. Howard has five touchdowns in his last three games and is always a threat to run in a short-yardage score, but his lack of chunk gains and receiving upside still leave him somewhat touchdown-dependent.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard is trending toward getting the bulk of the carries in the backfield, according to comments made by head coach Doug Pederson. 'I think as we go, Jordan has been kind of the lead back the last couple of games, for sure. ... I think moving forward it's kind of going that way. I can't sit here and say that if Miles (Sanders) has the hot hand one day that (Howard) gets more touches, but that's kind of the trend,' Pederson said.
Fantasy Spin: Howard has amassed 177 total yards and four touchdowns on 31 touches over the last two games, while Sanders has been accumulated 126 yards and no scores on his 24 touches. The latter has significantly more upside but has struggled to commit to hitting the hole despite flashing in a big way as a receiver. Howard has a difficult matchup coming up in Week 6 versus the Minnesota Vikings, but he'll be in the running for low-end RB2 production in that one if he can push for 15 touches again.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard posted 62 rushing yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in Week 5 against the New York Jets.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't a giant fantasy performance, but he has been consistent. He has at least 11 carries with a total of four rushing touchdowns and one receiving score over the past three outings. As such, Howard is a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 at Minnesota.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard led the Eagles backfield again in Week 5 and seems to have taken over as the head of the running back committee. Howard ran the ball 13 times, gaining 62 yards and scoring a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Howard and rookie Miles Sanders actually tied with 13 touches, but Howard was more heavily involved on the ground. He'll be near the RB2 map going forward if he maintains his hold on the committee.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard is a decent fantasy running back option for Week 5. Howard just scored three touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers and while he may not find the end zone three times again against the New York Jets in Week 5, he should at least get a few chances to run it in. With the Eagles shaping up as 13.5-point favorites, the running game could see a lot of play in the second half. Howard seems to have passed rookie Miles Sanders on the depth chart, but game flow could have played a role in that last week. Howard is a back-end RB2 with big upside in Week 5.
Eagles' RB Jordan Howard scored an impressive 32.50 fantasy points in Thursday's Week 4 win in Green Bay. Howard ran for 87 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards with three touchdowns. It's the 1st time this season Howard scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard ran 15 times for 87 yards and two TDs against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4. He also caught three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Spin: Green Bay had no answers for Philly's running game, which came in averaging just 3.6 yards per carry, and Howard seemed to be into the secondary before he was getting contacted on many plays. Long a minus as a receiver, Howard was also the only Eagles RB to catch a pass, including a 20-yard TD. Despite his big night, Howard's continued timeshare with Miles Sanders limits his overall upside.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard found the end zone three times on Thursday night. He ran the ball 15 times for 87 yards and two touchdowns, adding three catches for 28 more yards and another touchdown. Howard significantly outplayed Miles Sanders and may end up getting more run going forward. He ran the ball in from one yard out and from two yards out, and his receiving touchdown came on a 20-yard catch and run. Howard will end up as an RB1 this week, but should be more of an RB2/3 most weeks, albeit with plenty of touchdown upside.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard will likely need to score a touchdown in order to make himself a fantasy-relevant option on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. Howard has been playing behind rookie Miles Sanders and has just 99 yards total in the first three games of the season. He did score a touchdown in Week 3 and is always a threat to run in a short score. In what should be a close game against the Green Bay Packers, Howard is still at best a desperation RB4 for this week.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard rushed 11 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Howard is expected to be used around the goal line, but with such a limited role, his main fantasy contribution will likely be hurting the ceiling of Miles Sanders.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard found the end zone in Week 3. Howard ran the ball 11 times for just 37 yards, but ran in a one-yard goal line score in the first quarter. Howard didn't make an impact in the passing game. Rookie running back Miles Sanders saw 13 carries, so Howard was only two behind the lead for the team. He'll continue to have a role in the Eagles backfield, but his fantasy value will be very touchdown-dependent in this offensive scheme.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard is not a recommended fantasy option in a Week 3 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Howard picked up just 18 yards on the ground in Week 2 and will only put up a decent fantasy score if he scores a touchdown. A running back that is so touchdown-dependent without any passing game upside is only worth considering in the deepest of formats. Howard could suddenly have some legitimate value if other members of the Eagles backfield were to get injured, but for now, he's little more than a bench stash just in case.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard couldn't get anything going with the ball in Week 2. He gained 18 yards on eight carries, adding eight yards on his lone catch of the game. Howard and rookie Miles Sanders both struggled with the ball even though plenty of Eagles offensive playmakers missed time due to injury. Howard will likely only have fantasy value this season in weeks that he scores a touchdown.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard is a low-floor option for Week 2. Howard saw the fewest touches in the Eagles backfield in Week 1, and wasn't consistently used for short yardage work either. Still, he did look decent and perhaps earned a few more touches going forward. Looking like a touchdown-dependent option, Howard won't put up huge yardage numbers, so fantasy owners are looking at a risky floor in combination with a ceiling that isn't particularly high. Howard is not a recommended option in most lineups for Week 2.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard should see more looks in short-yardage situations and in the red zone moving forward. The Eagles used RBs Miles Sanders and Darren Sproles there in Week 1, and it didn't end well.
Fantasy Spin: Howard rushed just six times for 44 yards in Week 1, and that should improve. The Eagles match up against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, which doesn't bode well for Howard. He's not a great flex option next week.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard rushed six times for 44 yards in a 32-27 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Howard was efficient with his touches, but if his usage doesn't increase, his fantasy value will be minimal. Don't part ways with him yet, but Howard should be left on the bench in Week 2.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard carried the ball six times in Week 1, gaining 44 yards. He also caught two passes for 11 yards through the air. Howard trailed Darren Sproles (9) and Miles Sanders (11) in carries, but averaged the most yards per carry in the Eagles backfield with 7.3. Howard was efficient, but seemed to take a backseat to Sproles and Sanders in the backfield. With Corey Clement still around and sure to play on offense eventually, Howard looks like a touchdown-dependent, low-upside running back option going forward.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard was included in a proposed trade for Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon. The two teams also would have swapped mid-round picks and the Chargers would have needed to eat salary. L.A. rejected the deal.
Fantasy Spin: Howard seemingly would have gone from one committee to another. He's battling rookie Miles Sanders, and veterans Corey Clement and Darren Sproles for playing time in Philly but would have been in competition with Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson in L.A. He's expected to get the bulk of the early-season work, but Sanders is hot on his heels to take over after being selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
