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.

Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins, as an update to previous reports, felt the Miami Dolphins really liked him following his in-person meeting with head coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier in early March. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson believes the Dolphins are likely to take a running back during the first two days of the NFL Draft, possibly selecting Dobbins or Georgia RB D'Andre Swift at No. 26 overall. Or they may look to select LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor or FSU RB Cam Akers at 39th or 56th overall. Whichever back selected would then be paired with RB Jordan Howard as the team's top-two backs.
Huddle Up: This needs to obviously still play out through the NFL Draft, but it could lead to Howard ending up in yet another committee approach, lowering his overall value. Stay tuned.

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) said he is completely recovered from the shoulder injury that bothered him at the end of the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Howard is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the Dolphins in 2020 and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats, although he's unlikely to receive many goal-line opportunities.

Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Eagles) officially signed with the Miami Dolphins Saturday, March 21. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent RB Jordan Howard is in agreement on a two-year deal worth more than $10 million with the Miami Dolphins, according to a source Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Howard was limited to just 10 games last season, due to injury. He finished with 525 rushing yards and six touchdowns while adding 10 receptions for another 69 yards and a touchdown. He should have the lion's share of the backfield work with the Dolphins and could be a low-end RB2, though he shouldn't be expected to have many goal-line opportunities.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Howard will return to the lineup after missing multiple weeks because of his shoulder injury. He likely will see limited carries during the game since Miles Sanders has taken over the starting job. Fantasy players may be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Howard on the bench.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard will be third running back in Week 17 behind RB Miles Sanders and RB Boston Scott.
Huddle Up: Howard has no starting luster in fantasy this week. Miles Sanders remains a low-end RB1 or an elite RB2.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained a limited participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Howard has a chance to return for the regular-season finale against the New York Giants. Rookie RB Miles Sanders is coming off his best game of the season in Week 16, securing a role for himself even upon Howard's return. At best for Howard, the two will evenly split the backfield work. He's a risky flex option if back on the field this week.
