Jordan Howard up, Jeremy Langford down

Bears starting running back Jeremy Langford is expected to miss anywhere from 1-2 months with a sprained¬†ankle. Largely ineffective thru three weeks expect rookie running back Jordan Howard to receive the bulk of the snaps at running back in Langford’s absence. Howard, albeit on fewer carries is averaging 5.6 yards per carry compared to Langford’s pedestrian 3.7 yards per carry. Howard does a better job of gaining yards after contact and has proved to be the more effective receiver of the two during the early season. He’s a must add in all Fantasy Football formats.
