Jordan Howard Fantasy Football News 2019

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Thursday. Howard has an extra day to get cleared ahead of Monday night's game vs. the Giants. But at this point, assume he won't play in that one. Howard's absence would again make Miles Sanders a RB2 with upside.

The Eagles have ruled RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That makes Miles Sanders a solid starter across fantasy football formats -- though he could be a player to avoid in DFS at high ownership rates. Jay Ajayi carries 6 times to Sanders' 12 in last week's loss to the Seahawks and is a deep option for non-PPR leagues as well.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. As of Friday morning, he still hadn’t been cleared for contact, so fantasy owners shouldn’t be counting on him in Week 13 lineups. Howard’s absence would make Miles Sanders a borderline RB1.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact as of Wednesday morning, HC Doug Pederson said. We'll see if that changes over the next few days. Miles Sanders will be a RB1 vs. the Dolphins on Sunday if Howard remains out.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That means another game as lead back for Miles Sanders, who played 85% of the offensive snaps and handled 11 carries and 4 targets last week. The rookie is a RB2 with upside in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

The Eagles don't expect RB Jordan Howard to play today against the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's officially questionable with the shoulder injury that kept him out last week. RB Miles Sanders becomes a low-end RB2 option with Howard on the shelf.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. He remained limited in practice all week and, as of Friday, still hadn’t been cleared for contact. The good news is that we’ll get Howard’s official status by noon ET on Sunday. He’ll be a risk/reward RB3 if active. If not, Miles Sanders will again operate as Philly’s lead back.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact as of Friday morning, HC Doug Pederson said. We'll see how Philly lists Howard on the final injury report this afternoon. His absence would again leave Miles Sanders as the lead back. He disappointed in the box score last week but played 85% of the offensive snaps.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week before missing the Patriots game. Howard is still waiting for full medical clearance. We'll see if he can get it over the next few days. If not, Miles Sanders will again serve as Philly's lead back against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are all active. Sanders is fully expected to serve as the lead back and is a nice RB2 vs. a New England defense that’s been gashed for 5.3 yards per carry by RBs over the past 5 weeks.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) will miss today's game against the Patriots, according to multiple reports. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jay Ajayi is expected to be active and get touches, though Miles Sanders and Boston Scott "will carry the load." Sanders makes for a solid volume play in fantasy football lineups, especially in full PPR formats.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He still hadn’t been cleared for contact as of Friday morning, so he’s in legitimate danger of missing this one. Philly signed RB Jay Ajayi on Friday, but rookie Miles Sanders will serve as the lead back if Howard can’t go. Note that the Patriots have allowed 5.3 yards per carry to RBs over the past 5 weeks.

The Eagles are set to sign RB Jay Ajayi, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Jordan Howard is dealing with a stinger and is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Patriots. Ajayi has been unemployed all season but spent part of 2017 and all of 2018 with Philadelphia. He's worth adding if you have a roster spot to play with, but he still seems like a long shot for 2019 fantasy value.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Jordan Howard will continue to get the highest share of the team's carries going forward, according to Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia. That's not a surprise, given that Howard has topped Miles Sanders in carries for 2 straight weeks and scored rushing TDs in 3 straight. It's nice to have a coach come out and say it, though, so we don't have to guess as much at the committee breakdown. Pederson's revelation doesn't kill the fantasy outlook for Sanders, who garnered 5 of Philly's 6 RB pass targets in the win over the Jets. (Howard saw none.) Both will remain relevant, but treat Howard as the top option until further notice.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Darren Sproles is "week to week" with a quad strain. Sproles has totaled just 6 carries and 2 targets over the past 3 weeks, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders will continue to share backfield duties in Philly.
