11. Jordan Howard, Eagles (Stay-Away)
Howard has been Chicago’s workhorse back the last three seasons and become one of the most reliable fantasy running backs in the process. However, a move to Philadelphia might be good for the Eagles, but it’s going to hurt fantasy owners who think that Howard is a lock to keep on plugging along.
In Chicago, Howard was guaranteed to get carries, but he could quickly get lost in Philadelphia’s backfield. The Eagles might like Howard, but they only traded a 6th-round pick to get him while spending a 2nd-round pick to get Miles Sanders. Doug Pederson also loves to rotate his backfield and play running back by committee, so you can’t know who will get the most touches from week to week. In addition to Sanders, the Eagles won’t be afraid to give Corey Clement or Wendell Smallwood touches, potentially leaving Howard out in the cold.
