Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard ran five times for just four yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Howard was going backward, so Brian Flores leaned on Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida. Howard was third among tailbacks in total touches, and the Miami backfield is turning into Foxboro South. In other words, not good for fantasy owners. The Dolphins meet the Jaguars in Week 3 on Thursday in Jacksonville.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard was on the field for only nine offensive snaps during the Week 1 game but did receive eight carries in those snaps.
Huddle Up: Howard was part of a committee at running back for the Dolphins but was used when he was on the field. His role is uncertain moving forward, so fantasy players should look for other options and keep Howard on the bench.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard rushed for seven yards and one touchdown on eight carries against the New England Patriots in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins do not appear to have a set starter at running back, so Howard's role may vary depending on the opponent. He should still receive the carries around the goal line, which helps his fantasy value. Fantasy players probably have better options available and can keep Howard on the bench.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is listed as the top running back on the depth chart on the team's official website.
Huddle Up: Howard has proven in the past that he can handle a big workload, but you can expect Matt Breida to see his fair share of carries, too. However, for fantasy purposes, Howard should be the first Miami back taken, plucking him in the middle rounds as an RB3.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is expected to carry the rushing load in 2020, in the opinion of beat writer Cameron Wolfe. Wolfe expects Howard to receive 50 percent of the backfield touches.
Huddle Up: That would make Howard a low-end RB2 option, but he has very minimal PPR luster. Due to this, that projection seems high. He'll slip to an RB3 in PPR.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard's role is undefined, according to running backs coach Eric Studesville.
Huddle Up: Howard and Kalen Ballage figure to battle it out for similar, short-yardage roles in training camp. Matt Breida is the one to own in fantasy as an RB3. Howard is a low-end RB3 with little PPR luster, but he's a better RB4 if you can swing it.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is utilizing self motivation as he prepares for training camp and the season with his new team. 'I really don't have anything to prove to anybody, just to myself that I can still be that type of player,' Howard recently told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. '(I) just feel like I'm one of the top backs in the game, even (if) people don't give me respect or credit or anything like that. I'm still out here trying to show what I can do.'
Huddle Up: Howard followed three top-20 fantasy RB seasons with 594 total yards and seven TDs in 10 games last season in Philly, but he has RB2 upside as the lead ball-carrier on the running back-needy Dolphins.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard could 'come close to doubling' the number of carries RB Matt Breida will receive, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Howard probably won't see much work in the passing game, but if he does a bulk of the heavy lifting on early downs and near the goal line, he should at least be a solid flex option.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard is likely the top choice for carries anywhere near the goal line, according to beat writer Joe Schad.
Huddle Up: Howard rushed 119 times for 525 yards (4.4 yards per carry) and six scores in 10 games last season for the Philadelphia Eagles. His workload figures to be comparable in a committee with Matt Breida. Howard won't offer much in PPR leagues, but he's a low-end RB3 in non-PPR formats.

Miami Dolphins RBs Jordan Howard and Matt Breida are both expected to receive solid playing time this upcoming season, but it is not known which one will start.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins added Howard and Breida this offseason and probably will use the preseason to determine their roles. Both have had success in the past but have also dealt with injuries. Fantasy players can consider Howard and Breida No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running backs.
