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.

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.

The Eagles have traded for RB Jordan Howard, giving a conditional 6th-round pick that could become a 5th-rounder, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. So even the worst-case scenario here for Philadelphia would mean giving a pick in the round in which Chicago drafted Howard. The 24-year-old -- until November -- gives the Eagles a younger player to fulfill a role likely similar to what LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi played the past couple of years. At the very least, Howard looks like Philly's best bet near the goal line. We'll see if the Eagles add anything else to the position in the NFL Draft. In Chicago, meanwhile, RB Mike Davis appears ready to take over Howard's vacated role and looks like an option late in the single-digit rounds of best-ball drafts.

Injury Predictor

Since Howard entered the league in 2016, only 4 players have topped his 528 carries. Just 1 of those 3 -- and 1 of the next 7 behind him -- has averaged more yards per carry than Howard's 4.6. He has remained remarkably healthy, landing on just 1 injury report: Week 2 of 2017 for a shoulder issue. He did suffer a couple of injuries in college, though -- a sprained ankle that cost him 4 games and a sprained MCL that knocked him out for 2 more. A new coaching staff could alter Howard's workload share in 2018.
