    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.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 5:40pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard said that head coach Matt Nagy already deemed him 'the main guy,' but while he's proven he can be a traditional bell-cow running back, Nagy also mentioned that 'in this offense, it's more game specific as to whether or not you need that.'

    Huddle Up: Howard's draft stock is tricky to project, as he is coming off a pair of real solid seasons but with his criticisms in the passing game in terms of dropping passes, that means backfield teammate Tarik Cohen should receive plenty of work as well. In other words, while Howard is a tempting RB2 option, he may have his weeks with very little production in the boxscore.

  • Posted: 5/25/2018 10:21am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is working on some issues to help him become a better receiver out of the backfield, according to new running backs coach Charles London, who mentioned hand placement, focus and concentration and hand-eye coordination as some of the areas he is hoping to see improvement.

    Huddle Up: The ability to contribute much as a receiver has been Howard's one fatal flaw when it comes to taking the next step and becoming a potential elite fantasy starter. With all the skill-position talent they now have on the roster, the Bears should be able to open things up for the running game, which should make the third-year back's job as easy as it has ever been. Even if he loses a few more snaps to Tarik Cohen, Howard is primed to enjoy the best fantasy season of his career in 2018.

  • Posted: 4/17/2018 11:27am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard's agent said the Bears will not be trading their star running back.

    Huddle Up: Chicago's offense is coming together and Howard will arguably be its most important asset. He has averaged 1,217.5 yards and 7.5 touchdowns over his first two years and deserves attention as a low-end RB1.

  • Posted: 3/29/2018 7:26pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will be asked to catch the ball more in head coach Matt Nagy's offense, according to general manager Ryan Pace, and Pace said he expects Howard to continue to show progress as a receiver.

    Huddle Up: Howard isn't likely to morph into a PPR dynamo, but more opportunities to touch the ball can only help his value. He looks like a low-end RB1 candidate for 2018.

  • Posted: 3/3/2018 12:10pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is not available in a trade, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Howard is coming off a 1,122-yard season in 2017 and should be the starting running back for the Bears next season. He can be a low-end No. 1 running back or a No. 2 back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:39pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Howard posted two rushing touchdowns in a game for the second time in three weeks but has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He will have a tough matchup next week but can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 5:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for 37 yards and caught all four of his pass attempts for 26 yards in a Week 15 loss to the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: With the Bears behind most of the game, QB Mitchell Trubisky had to throw and that took away some of the power Howard provides. Howard remains a decent low-end RB1 option at running back when he can run unfettered.

  • Posted: 12/12/2017 6:49am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has a great matchup in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to running backs the last five weeks.

    Huddle Up: The Lions have allowed 4.7 yards per rush and seven scores in five games. Howard is coming off a 23-147-2 performance. He's an interesting RB1 this week.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 3:27pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 23 times for 147 yards and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added an eight-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: It Howard's fifth 100-yard game of the season, although he has yet to have back-to-back games with triple-digit yardage so far. He now has seven rushing scores and remains a solid low-end RB1 in most fantasy leagues for his potential for big stat lines like this.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 3:00pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for just 38 yards in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added one grab for minus-five yards.

    Huddle Up: The offense didn't look very good against a 49ers defense which entered play with just one victory in 11 tries. Howard and the Chicago offense will look to bounce back on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 6:49pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed seven times for six yards and caught two passes for 13 yards in a 31-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: The Chicago offense was awful in this one, and after digging a big hole early, the Bears had to abandon the running game. Expect a better showing from Howard against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.
