Bears RB Jordan Howard says he's going to fix drops

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

"There was a point in the offseason when there was trade chatter around Bears running back Jordan Howard, but no deal ever happened and coach Matt Nagy said that he is prepared to have Howard as the team’s featured back again this season," said Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

"Nagy and others have also spent some a good amount of time talking up Tarik Cohen‘s playmaking ability, however, and there are plenty of examples when plans in spring workouts are thrown out in the fall. One way for Howard to hold onto a big share of the job would be to do a better job of holding onto passes thrown his way."

Fantasy Impact: 

Howard has been credited with 14 drops over the last two seasons, the story said. It's something he said he can improve on and he's "going to fix it." Cohen burst onto the scene last year but then seemed to be used less as the season went on, so the new coaching staff could make it a point to get Cohen the ball more, especially if the drops continue for Howard.
