Bears RB Jordan Howard says he’s improved his hand placement in terms of becoming a better receiver. He was active in the passing game in practice Saturday.
Howard still finished as RB14 in PPR last season, despite a terrible offense and coaching staff that illustrated some of the worst playcalling in the league. New head coach Matt Nagy is expected to open up the offense more this season, but Howard will have to be reliable as a pass-catcher to maintain his snap counts. He has not reached 30 receptions in either of his first two seasons.
