Eagles find running game vs. Lions

Much to the dismay of JALEN HURTS’ fantasy owners, the Philadelphia Eagles remembered the running game on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The Eagles featured a committee in the backfield withMore running backs BOSTON SCOTT and JORDAN HOWARD combining to run for over 100 yards and 4 total touchdowns (with each back scoring twice). Less

The Philadelphia Eagles have a crowded running back room heading into the 2021 season, and new running backs coach Jemal Singleton said recently that all of his players will be startingMore with a clean slate. While MILES SANDERS is expected to lead the group, fellow running backs BOSTON SCOTT, JORDAN HOWARD, KERRYON JOHNSON, and KENNY GAINWELL will also be in the mix for a role. Less

Eagles sign RB Howard to one-year deal

Running back JORDAN HOWARD is returning to the Philadelphia Eagles after signing a one-year contract for the 2021 season. Howard has been declining in recent seasons, but he does not turnMore 27 until November and his deal with the Eagles is not expected to be expensive. If Howard can return to his level of play from 2018, he could be a nice complement to fellow running back MILES SANDERS. Less

Eagles add RB Howard to practice squad

After being waived earlier this week by the Miami Dolphins, veteran running back JORDAN HOWARD has joined the Philadelphia Eagles as a member of the team’s practice squad. Howard played forMore the Eagles last season but left at the end of the year as a free agent.

Dolphins release veteran RB Howard

The Miami Dolphins released running back JORDAN HOWARD on Monday. If Howard was somehow on your fantasy bench, your team is probably safe to release him as well. Howard began hisMore NFL career in Chicago with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, but he had a mere 28 carries for 33 yards this season in Miami. Less

Breida misses another practice due to bad hammy

Miami Dolphins running back MATT BREIDA missed practice for the second consecutive day due to a hamstring injury. The Dolphins were expecting Breida to replace injured starter MYLES GASKIN (placed onMore injured reserve), but that plan may need to change. If Breida is not available for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, some combination of JORDAN HOWARD, PATRICK LAIRD, and SALVON AHMED would get the call. Less

Miami Dolphins running back MYLES GASKIN sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee during Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. Gaskin is expected to miss the next few weeksMore due to the injury. Some combination of running backs MATT BREIDA, JORDAN HOWARD, and PATRICK LAIRD will now take over in the Dolphins backfield. Miami also added running back DEANDRE WASHINGTON on Tuesday via a trade with Kansas City, although he is not expected to have any fantasy value. Less

Around the NFL: Miami running backs

The Dolphins had the league's worst running game a year ago, which tends to happen when your offensive line is cheap and terrible and you trade your only decent running back during the season. They brought in two new veterans this offseason, Jordan Howard and Matt Breida, and those are the guys who should get most (all?) of the snaps in 2020. How might things shake out?  more »

Breida, Howard ready to “shock” the NFL in 2020

Miami Dolphins running back MATT BREIDA said recently that he and new teammate JORDAN HOWARD are going to shock a lot of people heading into the 2020 season. The two veteranMore running backs were discarded by their former teams but are expected to carry the rushing load in Miami. Considering that quarterback RYAN FITZPATRICK led the Dolphins in rushing with 243 yards last season, the bar is low. Less

Factoid: Dolphins running backs

I kind of cringe whenever I see Jordan Howard selected in drafts. He's an ordinary talent, routinely outplayed by the other backs on the roster everywhere he's been, and he's going to a team that probably won't run the ball well, won't have many leads and will favor a committee. Otherwise, great pick.   more »

Dolphins acquire RB Breida from 49ers

The Miami Dolphins acquired veteran running back MATT BREIDA from the San Francisco 49ers in a draft day trade over the weekend. Breida, 25, fell out of favor last year inMore San Francisco with the development of fellow running back RAHEEM MOSTERT. Breida and JORDAN HOWARD will enter camp as the front-runners to be the Dolphins’ top two running backs. Less

Dolphins RB Howard fully recovered from bum shoulder

Newly signed Miami Dolphins running back JORDAN HOWARD says that he is back to 100 percent after battling a shoulder injury last season. Howard regressed a bit in 2019, likely dueMore at least in part to the shoulder injury. Howard is a former fifth round draft pick and he has 30 rushing touchdowns in four NFL seasons. His role in Miami in 2020 is not entirely clear, but his touchdown production will be hard for fantasy owners to ignore. Less

Ertz ruled out vs. Giants, Howard to play

Philadelphia Eagles tight end ZACH ERTZ has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Ertz suffered back and rib injuries in last Sunday’s game against theMore Dallas Cowboys. Fellow tight end DALLAS GOEDERT should see most of the action against the Giants. Running back JORDAN HOWARD is good to go for the game, but head coach Doug Pederson said that Howard will be the third running back behind MILES SANDERS and BOSTON SCOTT. Fantasy owners take note.
