Dolphins running backs coach Eric Studesville says it's too early to conclude how his room will share the workload given they haven't even practiced in pads. But Matt Breida looks to be the lightning of the room while Jordan Howard can be the thunder. The key for both backs will be staying healthy, as each dealt with injury issues last season.
The author of this story gave his prediction of how things could get split - just for us fantasy owners. He said Howard, the bruiser, could get 50% of backfield touches, with Breida taking 35% and the other running backs sharing the remaining 15% - if both lead backs stay healthy and play up to expectations. The difference comes in how the Dolphins might split those touches with Howard a better fit on early downs while Breida is likely to be the third-down and passing-down back who should lead this room in receptions. Breida could even line up at receiver to get him more action in the passing game, the story went on to say. We rank Breida 33rd and Howard 42nd in our PPR RB rankings.
