Jordan Howard Says His Shoulder Is 100 Percent

Miami Dolphins running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) said he's 100 percent after dealing with a shoulder injury that slowed him down late last season with the Eagles. Howard sat out the final seven regular season games and also didn't play in the wild-card game because of the injury. He had 119 carries for 525 yards (4.4 yards per carry) and six touchdowns before the shoulder ailment, though, but he only contributed a career-low 10 receptions for 69 yards and a TD. Howard's lack of contributions in the passing game made him more of a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex, but he could have an opportunity to exceed fantasy expectations in Miami if he's given a bigger role. The ineffective Kalen Ballage sits behind him on the depth chart, but the Dolphins will surely address the position in the draft. For now, consider Howard a touchdown-dependent low-end RB2, at best.

Dolphins May Have Interest In Todd Gurley

The Miami Dolphins were one of the teams that showed the most interest in trading for running back Todd Gurley II in recent weeks before he was released by the Rams on Thursday, according to a source. The former 10th overall pick by the Rams in 2015, Gurley's chronic knee issues have made him more of committee back in the last year and change. Miami already signed Jordan Howard in free agency, but they'd be best off adding another running back or two in free agency or through the draft, as Kalen Ballage is the No. 2 back currently. Gurley would have low-end RB2 fantasy appeal if he's sharing the backfield with Howard in Miami.

Dolphins Reach Agreement With Jordan Howard

Updating a previous report, the Miami Dolphins agreed to a two-year deal worth north of $10 million with running back Jordan Howard on Tuesday, according to a source. Miami desperately needed backfield help, especially after they traded Kenyan Drake to the Cardinals midseason. Howard, who spent just one year in Philadelphia, will be the early down, and goal-line back for the Dolphins and will share backfield touches with Kalen Ballage, although they could also address the position in the draft. As a running back that doesn't catch many passes, Howard will be more of an RB3/flex option that is touchdown-dependent with his new club.

Dolphins Close To Signing Jordan Howard

The Miami Dolphins are closing in on a deal for former Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard, according to a source. Howard averaged a healthy 4.4 yards per carry in 2019 when he was healthy. The 25-year-old Bulldozer played in just 10 games in his lone season for Philly last year, including only four starts. He had 119 carries for 525 yards and six touchdowns, adding only 10 receptions for 69 yards and another score. The former Chicago Bears running back was a Pro Bowler in his rookie season, but he's mostly become an early down, between-the-tackles runner and hasn't had more than 29 catches (in his rookie year) in a single season. With Kalen Ballage currently atop the depth chart in the backfield, Howard would likely see most of the early down carries if he signs, but his lack of pass-catching chops probably gives him an RB2 ceiling.

Emmanuel Ogbah Agrees With Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins agreed to a two-year, $15 million deal with defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah on Tuesday. The deal includes $7.5 million in guarantees. Ogbah played in 10 games (four starts) for the world champion Chiefs in 2019 and tied a career high with 5.5 sacks while also tallying 32 tackles (23 solo) and one forced fumble. He won't move the needle much in IDP leagues. Miami has clearly made upgrading the defense a priority in free agency, already adding Ogbah, Kyle Van Noy, Shaq Lawson and Byron Jones. It won't make them immediately draft-worthy in fantasy, but they should definitely improve in 2020.
