2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Before using an early draft pick on Penn State running back Miles Sanders, the Eagles shipped off a late-round pick to the Bears for running back Jordan Howard, a north-south tailback who did not fit the scheme run by Chicago head coach Matt Nagy.

One could argue that the move is a bit of a head-scratcher for the Eagles based on the fact that Doug Pederson also likes to have running backs that can catch. The one thing that does make sense is the Eagles did not have a bruising back on their roster for short yardage and early down work, a role that Howard will likely assume to start the season.

Howard finished the 2018 season as the No.27 ranked running back based on fantasy points per game, just .2 points per game behind his former backfield mate, Tarik Cohen. A concerning trend for Howard is the fact that he has declined in fantasy points per game and yards per attempt in each of his three seasons in the league. His 3.7 yard per carry average last year was disappointing considering the improvements to the Bears offense, and he continues to be a non-factor in the passing game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Boston Scott has big day, Miles Sanders hurt
Eagles RBs a hobbled unit heading into playoffs
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Sun Dec 29, 9:35 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Boston Scott became the sole running back after Miles Sanders left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury, rushing 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' 34-17, Week 17 win over the Giants, adding four catches for 84 yards on six targets. Running back Jordan Howard, who hadn’t played since Nov. 3. was cleared this week after a shoulder injury but the Eagles obviously did not want to play him. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Howard should be available for the first round of the playoffs, though we may see Scott assume more of the Miles Sanders role if that ankle isn't 100 percent.


Injury Jordan Howard set to return
Shoulder injury has sidelined him since Week 9
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 23, 10:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles are releasing RB Jay Ajayi today, per source. They are getting RB Jordan Howard back this week. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: It's not great news for Miles Sanders' fantasy owners, but the Eagles are likely happy to have him back so they can be a bit more judicious with the rookie's workload. Sanders has earned more work with his recent play, but owners should expect this backfield to return to a committee based on Doug Pederson's history. Consider Howard a volatile flex touchdown-or-bust play this week.


Injury Howard, Agholor ruled out for Week 15
Eagles incredibly thin at WR
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 14, 1:34 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles injury update for Washington: DOWNGRADED TO OUT: Nelson Agholor (knee), Derek Barnett (ankle), Jordan Howard (shoulder). (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles are incredibly thin at wide receiver this week. With a starting lineup of JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward, expect Carson Wentz to lean heavily on his tight ends and running backs in the passing game.


Injury Jordan Howard ruled out
All systems go for Miles Sanders
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 30, 12:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles injury update: RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) have been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Eagles promoted TE Josh Perkins from the practice squad, activated CB Cre'von LeBlanc from Reserve/Injured and waived DT Albert Huggins. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Howard was limited in practice this week but still needs to get cleared for contact before he can play. The Eagles will roll with Miles Sanders, Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott at running back against the Dolphins. The call-up of Perkins is concerning for the status of Zach Ertz (hamstring). Ertz owner should pay close attention to early morning reports tomorrow.


Injury Ertz, Howard listed as questionable
Hamstring injury for Ertz
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 3:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Zach Ertz hasn’t practiced much all this week because a hamstring injury he first suffered last week. He declined to speak today, but said, “See ya Sunday.” Would imagine he’ll soldier through as he did vs. the Seahawks. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ertz reportedly played through his hamstring injury last week so it's safe to assume he'll suit up in Week 13. Jordan Howard hasn't been cleared for contact so it's unlikely he plays, leaving Miles Sanders in another good spot against the Dolphins this week. Sanders has yet to capitalize on his opportunity while Howard's been out, but it doesn't get much better than a meeting with the lowly Dolphins.


Injury Alshon Jeffery inactive for Week 12
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 24, 11:30 am

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is officially inactive. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jordan Howard and Nelson Agholor are also inactive. It will be the "B" team for the Eagles today. Expect tight ends Zack Ertz and Dallas Goedert to be heavily targeted. At wide receiver, Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins and JJ Arcega-Whiteside will be the top 3 wide receivers.


Injury Jordan Howard, Agholor unlikely to play
Alshon Jeffery expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 24, 7:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles RB Jordan Howard, listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, and WR Nelson Agholor, questionable with a knee injury, are both unlikely to play against the Seahawks, per source. WR Alshon Jeffery, listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is expected to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jeffery's return will be welcome news to Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense. Expect Jeffery and the two tight ends (Zach Ertz) to be the focal point of the passing offense. Miles Sanders should see the majority of touches out of the backfield with Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott sprinkling in.


Injury Alshon Jeffery practices Thursday, Agholor sits
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 21, 1:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles injury update: Following are at practice: Alshon Jeffery (ankle), Nigel Bradham (ankle), Jordan Howard (shoulder), Jason Peters (knee). Not here: Nelson Agholor (knee), Lane Johnson (concussion). (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jeffrey missed Week 11 with an ankle injury but appears ready to return. His matchup against the Seahawks is decent as Seattle has given up the 12th most fantasy points to wide receivers including six 100-yard games. This is the second straight practice Agholor has missed with a knee injury.


Injury Jordan Howard not expected to play
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 17, 7:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles’ RB Jordan Howard, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Patriots with a shoulder injury, is not expected to play, per source. New Eagles’ RB Jay Ajayi, signed only Friday, is expected to make his 2019 debut Sunday vs. Patriots, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles will be rolling with Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and newly signed Ajayi at running back. Sanders and Scott should see the bulk of work with Ajayi sprinkled in for a few carries. It's difficult to project Sanders as anything more than a RB2 given his unclear workload and a somewhat difficult matchup against the Patriots.


Injury Jordan Howard listed as questionable
Howard limited in practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 15, 1:52 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Jordan Howard will be listed as questionable for Sunday. He declined to talk after practice. Jay Ajayi, meanwhile, worked out for the #Eagles, and per @RapSheet, is likely to sign with the team. And this all after Darren Sproles was placed on IR. Lots of movement at RB. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Howard suffered a shoulder stinger late in last week's game and reportedly hasn't been cleared for contact. It sounds like he's on the wrong side of questionable. If he sits, we could see a lot of Miles Sanders this week against the Patriots with Ajayi being sprinkled in on short notice.
