Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for 35 yards in the Bears' Wild Card loss to the Eagles.
Howard failed to catch his lone target. The Bears probably should have ran it more with Howard and featured Tarik Cohen more instead of putting 43 pass attempts on Mitchell Trubisky's plate. Howard really came on late in the season with both of his 100-yard rushing games Weeks 14 and 17. He also scored four of his nine rushing touchdowns in that span. Howard had double-digit carries in all but one game this year and played in all 17 games, finishing with 970 yards and nine scores on 260 attempts. Howard remained a virtual zero in the pass game, however, amassing just 20-145-0 there. Howard will enter the final year of his rookie deal in 2019 but should remain the team's lead runner and bring back top-25 fantasy results at the position. Jan 6 - 8:53 PM

Jordan Howard rushed 21 times for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Chicago's Week 17 win over Minnesota.

Howard was a workhorse, with the 21 carries his most since Week 10. He was Chicago's entire offense in a game Mitchell Trubisky threw for only 163 yards. Howard saw 14 more touches than Tarik Cohen, though he had a touchdown vultured in the fourth quarter. With a first round matchup against the Eagles, Howard will be one of the top DFS plays nect week.

Jordan Howard rushed 13 times for 53 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 16 win over the 49ers.

He added 17 yards while catching 2-of-3 targets in the pass game. Howard now has 75 yards and/or one touchdown in four straight games, with the Bears winning three of those. Howard should again get his customary 15-18 touches in the Week 17 finale at Minnesota in Week 17 with the Vikings playing for a Wild Card spot and the Bears fighting for the No. 2 seed.
Sun, Dec 23, 2018 07:24:00 PM

Jordan Howard rushed 19 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 15 win over the Packers, adding a 15-yard reception.

The score was Howard's first in six games. He was literally untouched as he bounded nine yards to the end zone. Howard has now cleared 60 yards rushing in three straight games. He will remain on the RB2/3 borderline for Week 16 against the 49ers.
Sun, Dec 16, 2018 04:24:00 PM

Jordan Howard had 19 carries for 101 yards in Chicago's Week 14 win over the Rams.

Howard was outshined by Tarik Cohen in the first half, but he grinded his way to a 100-yard game. Chicago went run heavy protecting their lead in the second half, allowing Howard to rack up 20 touches. Howard still hasn’t scored since Week 9, but he's trending up with 75-plus yards the last two games. He’ll be an RB2 against the Packers’ league-worst run defense in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 9, 2018 11:40:00 PM

Jordan Howard rushed 16 times for 76 yards in the Bears' Week 13 loss to the Giants.

Howard was impressive in the first half, gaining 68 yards on the ground before the break. He had pickups of 21 and 25 yards to set up a touchdown to Adam Shaheen. Howard disappeared after that as Tarik Cohen took over and totaled 186 yards with a passing score. Howard will be a TD-or-bust RB2/3 next week at home against the Rams. He's a tough sell every week.
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 05:07:00 PM

Jordan Howard rushed seven times for 13 yards in the Bears' Week 12 win over the Lions, adding a two-yard reception.

Brutal. With Chase Daniel presenting zero down-field threat, the Bears could not get anything on the ground against the Lions' improving run defense. The 15 yards from scrimmage were by far Howard's fewest of the season, though he was also head to 32 two weeks ago. Completely touchdown-or-bust as a run-only running back, Howard is a low-upside RB2/3.
Thu, Nov 22, 2018 04:21:00 PM

Jordan Howard had 18 carries for 63 yards in Chicago's Week 11 win over the Vikings.

It's a solid game against a tough Vikings run defense. Howard had more touches than Tarik Cohen (10), but they played close to the same amount of snaps. Howard's 18 carries were the most since Week 8. There haven't been many big games from Howard this year, with fewer than 50 rushing yards in four of the last seven weeks. He'll be an RB2 for Week 12 against Detroit.
Sun, Nov 18, 2018 11:41:00 PM

Jordan Howard scrounged up 21 yards on 11 carries while securing his lone target for an 11-yard gain Sunday in Chicago’s Week 10 win over the Lions.

Sunday spelled an end to Howard's three-game touchdown streak. Tarik Cohen out-touched Howard by a commanding 11-2 margin in the first half and was even featured on the goal line. Howard took on more work with Chicago looking to kill clock in the second half, but obviously he wasn't able to take advantage. The third-year back has been lousy as a ball-carrier recently, averaging an underwhelming 3.13 yards per carry over his last four games. He'll be a touchdown-or-bust RB2 when the Vikings come to town in Week 11.

Jordan Howard rushed 14 times for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 9 romp over Buffalo.

Fantasy owners were fortunate to come away with the scores -- one at the goal line and the other from 18 yards out -- because Howard would have been a major dud without them. He didn't see a single target in the passing game in a matchup where the Bears barely even had the ball because their defense scored twice. Howard did out-touch Tarik Cohen 14 to 7. Nevertheless, Howard will remain a touchdown-dependent RB2 option when the Bears host the Lions next.
Sun, Nov 4, 2018 05:31:00 PM

Jordan Howard had 22 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 8 win over the Jets.

Tarik Cohen stole the show early, but Howard sealed the win for Chicago with a late fourth-quarter TD. Howard didn't have any highlights outside of his touchdown and wasn't involved in the pass game. He's been more touchdown dependent than usual this year, but Howard has double-digit carries in every game this season. Howard will be an RB2 for a Week 9 matchup against Buffalo.
Sun, Oct 28, 2018 04:28:00 PM

Jordan Howard rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

He added nine yards on one catch. Howard continued to split carries with Tarik Cohen even when the game was close and struggled to find consistent success on the ground, but he helped out his fantasy backers with a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He appeared to have another score on the first drive of the second half, but the play was negated by an illegal formation penalty. He did surprise with a twisting catch on his only target, but Howard mostly took a backseat from that point on with the Bears trailing. He now has 14 or fewer touches in each of his last three games. Howard will be an RB3/FLEX option next week against the Jets.

Jordan Howard logged 69 yards on 14 carries while failing to reel in his lone target Sunday in Chicago’s Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Howard contributed a handful of big runs but was again out-shined by backfield-mate Tarik Cohen, who impressed with 121 yards from scrimmage. Despite assurances from coach Matt Nagy that Howard would play a bigger role in the passing game this year, he's mostly been a non-factor in that area, just as he's been throughout his career. Howard had a chance for a touchdown in the first half but coughed it up on the goal line, resulting in a turnover. With Cohen's workload on the rise, Howard is looking like a fringe RB2, which isn't what fantasy owners thought they were getting when they drafted him in August. We'll see how Chicago's backfield distribution shakes out next week against New England.

Jordan Howard said he "wasn’t frustrated" by his role Week 4 against the Bucs.

The Bears had easily their best day of the season on offense, but Howard was left out of the fun, rushing just 11 times for 25 yards despite what seemed like his perfect gamescript. On Monday, coach Matt Nagy made it sound like Howard's lack of involvement was game-plan specific. "He has a big-time role. But if it’s an advantage to us to go a different direction for that game or for that play or that series, we’re going to do that," Nagy said. "And Jordan is good with that. He understands it." It sounds like Howard will return to the No. 1 role against the Dolphins this week, but it might not be a coincidence the offense looked its best with Tarik Cohen as the main back. Howard's rest-of-season workload is now at least a question mark.

Jordan Howard rushed 11 times for 25 yards in the Bears' Week 4 victory over the Bucs.

Chicago led 38-3 at the half, which would usually make for terrific game script for Howard to go out and ice the rest of the game. But it was Tarik Cohen who stayed involved from kick-off to the final whistle, leading the Bears in both targets and carries. Howard failed to haul in his only target Sunday, too. The argument to start Howard has been strictly usage-based to this point as he has yet to eclipse the 100-yard mark despite averaging 16 carries per game. If Cohen continues cutting into his playing time, it will be time for owners to rethink their position on him. This timeshare will be worth monitoring when the Bears return from their bye in Week 6.
