  • See our experts' fantasy football rankings, 2019 projections, analysis and more for Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard.

Second-round pick Miles Sanders has received most of the offseason hype, but we shouldn’t underestimate the possibility that Howard enters Week 1 as the Eagles’ lead early-down and goal-line back.

The only problem is that this role likely wouldn’t lead to a consistent dose of 15-plus touches per game. Head coach Doug Pederson has consistently utilized a committee backfield during his three seasons with the Eagles when he’s had a multiple one-dimensional backs.

Sanders might have enough three-down ability to overcome this historical trend, but Howard’s best-case scenario looks like a capable early-season option who will continue to be more game-script dependent than his fantasy investors would prefer. Ian Hartitz
