The Bears Put Up 48 Points… and Jordan Howard Totals 2.5 in Fantasy

On a day where his team exploded for 48 Points and 438 yards, Bears RB Jordan Howard racked up… a pathetic 25 yards. Despite a seemingly perfect game flow with a huge lead to bleed, Howard tallied just 11 touches, as compared to 20 for backfield mate Tarik Cohen. Even worse, Cohen severely outplayed Howard, racking up an impressive 174 total yards and 1 score on his looks. The whole offense clearly benefitted from Cohen’s versatility and receiving ability, which has Howard’s future usage in question moving forward. 

This was about as dreadful as can be for Howard. He’s been little more than a plodder in recent action, failing to top 2.5 YPC for three straight weeks. This included a cream-puff matchup versus Arizona’s league-worst run defense that just surrendered 124 total yards and 2 scores to freakin’ Mike Davis.

Perhaps Matt Nagy has seen enough, as Howard’s usage dropped dramatically in favor of Cohen, who only justified his role expanding with a dominant performance. Unless you find an eager buyer, Howard would be a recommended hold because this has to be rock-bottom, and you’d be selling damn low. Hell, I might toss out a few bids in case his owner is panicking with the Bears on Bye.  Still, his value is extremely shaky moving forward, and he’s set for a serious fall down the Season Long Big Board this week.
