Knee
February 6, 2020
Criminal charges against Howard (knee) have been dropped, but the NFL can still investigate his December arrest, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Given that the arrest was for domestic battery, Howard could be looking at a six-game suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy. The league presumably will investigate the December incident.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Following an impressive sophomore season, Howard remains locked in as one of Miami's starting cornerbacks. Given that the 2016 second-rounder was also able to stay healthy throughout the entire 2017 season, any injury concerns still lingering from his rookie year have been extinguished. The 25-year-old was able to lock down former first-round receiver DeVante Parker throughout much of training camp, and could emerge as a legitimate No. 1 cornerback this year if he can elevate his game to the next level.
Howard was the team’s second-round pick in 2016. In today’s NFL, you can never have enough good cornerbacks but the Dolphins are well on their way with Howard and Bryon Maxwell. The defense could be the strength of this team should it stay healthy and a secondary that has been the unit’s weakness in the past could soon be one its strengths.
Howard was the Dolphins second round pick in the 2016 draft. He was expected to compete for a starting job from day one but knee surgery may put those plans on hold for the immediate future. Howard could still land a starting spot if he can recover quickly but the more likely scenario is that he will begin the season in a reserve role as he proves to the coaching staff that he can cover the league's best receivers.
