If Week 1 wasn't great for Howard, Week 2 was an abject disaster. With Chicago falling behind early due to four turnovers, Howard saw a very light workload. When he did touch it, he was completely ineffective, due at least in part to Tampa Bay's ability to fill holes before they formed. To compound issues, he was was spotted in a sling after the game.
Chicago is going to be behind a lot this year, which could continue to limit Howard's opportunities. The presence of rookie sensation Tarik Cohen further complicates matters. Despite this, if Howard is healthy, he should rebound to be a solid high-end RB2 type player who sees around 15 touches per game.
