Fantasy Football Debate: Jordan Howard – ADP Value or Draft Afterthought?

Aug 20, 2019

Beyond our fantasy football content, be sure to check out our award-winning slate of Fantasy Football Tools as you prepare for your draft this season. From our free mock Draft Simulator – which allows you to mock draft against realistic opponents – to our Draft Assistant – which optimizes your picks with expert advice – we’ve got you covered this fantasy football draft season.

Every fantasy football draft season, there are players that cause a divide between fantasy football experts and analysts. To get a sense of the most volatile players entering fantasy football drafts, you can check out our Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) and view the player’s standard deviation. The lower the standard deviation, the more agreement around a player’s ranking. But a high standard deviation means our experts have a high range of expected outcomes.

Since these are the players that tend to make or break fantasy football drafts, we’ve paired our experts and writers — one higher on a player compared to our ECR and one lower — to bring to you a fantasy football player debate.

Today, our debate will center on Eagles running back Jordan Howard. Howard has an ECR of RB37 in half-PPR scoring formats. Our writer Matt Giraldi (@MGiraldi) is higher on Howard, while writer Raju Byfield (@fantasycontext) isn’t as confident in Howard entering the new season.

Let’s check out the fantasy football debate for Jordan Howard.
