Howard missed 7 games last year because of an injury and the emergence of Miles Sanders. Sanders was predicted to be their future running back so Howard didn’t get any looks after he was deemed ready to get back in action. Before last year, Howard averaged 259 rushing attempts/year and never missed a game. I believe that Howard will bounce back to being his reliable self, and back into the fantasy radar. The Dolphins will most likely have a new QB this year or Fitzmagic again, meaning the offense will be run heavy. Howard has a good shot of being a steady RB2.
PREDICTION: 254 rushing attempts, 1,179 rushing yards, 8 TD’s, 20 receptions, 112 receiving yards, PPR RB25, STD RB15
The Bears seem to be switching to Foles for their starter for the 2020 season. Cohen should benefit from Foles’ short passing game and Coach Nagy’s creativity. After a huge down year last year, I think Cohen should be back to a great PPR play this year. In 2018, Cohen had 1,100+ total yards with 8 TD’s with 71 receptions. I think he should be able to reach those marks again in 2020.
PREDICTION: 82 receptions, 1,152 total yards, 7 TD’s, PPR RB14, STD RB 26
Looking at Gurley’s stat line the past three years, he has scored a whopping 54 TD’s, 3,413 rushing yards, 154 receptions, and 1,575 receiving yards. Henderson should be the lead runner for the starting job now that Gurley is in ATL. Sean McVay uses his running backs like crazy and it has shown the past three years. Gurley had a down year last year due to the reduction of carries and possible knee troubles. He still finished as the RB11 in STD scoring leagues. Henderson was drafted in the third round in the 2019 draft.
PREDICTION: 220 carries, 1,200 yards, 13 TD’s, 32 receptions, 440 receiving yards, RB6
