Despite catching just 23 passes last season, Howard's PPR rank dropped just four spots to 14. So perhaps there's no need to avoid him as the 14th RB off the board (24 overall) in the format that poorly suits him. Yet his limited pass-catching involvement makes him more dependent on game flow, which relegated him to three single-digit rushing tallies in lopsided losses. He compiled 563 rushing yards and six TDs in five wins and 559 yards and three TDs in 11 losses, so Howard's a particularly appealing Best Ball pick who will remain a high-end RB2 if the Bears improve under Matt Nagy. Don't forget about Ingram after the first few rounds. He stockpiled 190.5 fantasy points in 12 games after New Orleans dealt Adrian Peterson--a mark eclipsed during the whole season by just seven other rushers--so he should make plenty of noise upon returning from a four-game suspension. Two postseason duds and eight of his dozen scores occurring inside the five cast some doubt over a full-fledged repeat, but anyone comfortable in finding a September seat-holder can snag 12 games of a low-end RB1 at a low-end RB2 or flex price.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
When coach-speak jives with usage, we have an edge. This preseason, Jordan Howard has played on 72% of #Bears first-team snaps. Tarik Cohen: 27.5%. The duo has split third-down snaps (3 to 3). @GrahamBarfield Mitch Trubisky went 98% shotgun at NC & Jordan Howard has been remarkably more efficient from gun than from under center. What did the Bears do last year? 50% shotgun, 13% below league average. I'm sure there will be a drastic change under Nagy this season. Per @SportsInfo_SIS, over the last two seasons, Jordan Howard has averaged 1.7 more yds/carry in 3WR sets and 2.6 more ypc in shotgun, but just 31% of his carries came in 3WR and 24% from shotgun. Under Matt Nagy, Kareem Hunt saw 45% of carries in 3WR sets and 49% from shotgun. @TJHernandez 4 game suspension

Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Howard has been a useful fantasy running back the past two seasons, but primarily because of his workload. With Matt Nagy coming into town and Tarik Cohen being a significantly better pass catcher, Howard's touches should dwindle enough that he is no longer an RB1, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be grabbed in the 3rd round.Ingram is set to miss 4 games due to suspension, but he was rock solid last year and is expected to maintain the same role upon his re-entry. From the moment he comes back, you are getting an easy RB1, so if you believe you can muster a win or two without your fifth round pick over the first month then don't hesitate to get Ingram on your roster at that point.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
There's talk that he is making strides as a receiver, which is a tough sell. But he's been an RB1 on strengths of his power running skills, and this CHI offense should take a leap forward under HC NagyIf he missed four games last season, he'd still have finished No. 13 at RB for the season, and in '15 he was No. 13 despite actually missing four games - even if you factor in some regression because the overall NO backfield production was insane, you can make a fair case for ranking him back-end top 20 at RB
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In standard formats, feel free to draft Howard in the second-round, as he's going to be the workhorse on first- and second-down for new head coach Matt Nagy, who comes from Andy Reid's tutelage. Howard has been one of the most reliable runners in football the last two years, averaging 4.61 yards per carry while the defense knew exactly what they were doing, with no other real threat on the field for a majority of those games. His lack of passing-down work limits his upside, but he's extremely safe in standard because there isn't another running back on the roster who can net 200-plus carries. He's essentially the Demaryius Thomas of running backs where he won't win you your league, but won't lose it. He's suspended for the first four games of the season, sure, but getting him for 12 games will be more valuable than someone like Derrick Henry, who will be touchdown-reliant in all 16 games. It's clear that the Saints don't want to shift more of the early-down work to Alvin Kamara, as Sean Payton said they don't want to change his workload much, even during the first four weeks while Ingram is out. Ingram is also due for some positive regression in the touchdown department, as he caught 58 passes last year without a single touchdown. The league average among running backs is one every 25.6 receptions. Even with his suspension, Ingram is worthy of a top-20 running back selection.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Howard gave fantasy owners a lot of ups and downs, finishing with three top-10 performances and seven top-20 performances last year, but also a handful of terrible games (like Weeks 2, 12, and 13). Howard did see his yards per carry drop from 5.2 to 4.1 last year, which isn't great, but he also finished with a decent 5.8% DVOA . I think a lot of Howard's struggles last year can be traced to the Bears' offensive line, as Howard recorded the 14th-best DVOA last season but the 35th-best success rate (successful running plays divided by total running plays), suggesting he can break off big runs but is getting stuffed at the line of scrimmage a fair bit. That being said, the addition of James Daniels in the draft at the left guard position should prove beneficial for the running game, and if Cody Whitehair can improve to what we've seen him do before and Kyle Long can stay healthy, this offensive line could look a lot better than it did last year, which would be excellent news for Howard.Even with the Saints using Alvin Kamara as much as they did last year, Ingram was still able to manage 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns, including seven top-10 finishes last year (one of them as number one). Unfortunately, he's got two things working against him this year-first, there's the likelihood that he's going to lose work to Kamara after his explosive season last year, and second, he's suspended for the first four games of the year. He should still have value once he returns from his suspension given the high-octane offense the Saints have and how good their offensive line is, but he's not the high-end RB2 he used to be.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Howard was all over the map last season, but it didn't help that John Fox was awful. Matt Nagy will be a step up in play calling this season, and I expect Howard to get a bit more consistency and a higher ceiling.Ingram will miss the first four games of the season. He should be able to return after that and put up similar numbers to last season, but if someone like Jonathan Williams comes in and plays well in his stead, it could hurt his touches afterward.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Howard is making strides to improve as a receiver and is a darkhorse to lead the NFL in rushing touchdowns in a potentially-dangerous Bears offense.Ingram is a proven producer and a potential championship-winning addition if his owners can survive not having him for five out of the first six weeks of the season.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Tarik Cohen could eat into Howard's load, but Chicago's offense is on the move and Howard will remain a big reason why it hums.Ingram will miss a handful of games due to a suspension, so his season long value takes a big hit. He's still a solid pick and can return RB1 value in any given week.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Howard averaged a solid 11.2 fantasy points per game on an offense with little other skill position talent. There are questions about how much new head coach Matt Nagy is going to use him, which is hurting his fantasy value for 2018. Ingram averaged 14.1 fantasy points per game this year. I think Ingram will lose touches to Kamara next year and he is suspended for the first four games. He probably will have only flex value for the season and RB2 value once he starts playing in Week 5.
Andrew Erickson
Gridiron Experts
31.25% bust rate in 2017. Don't love the upside becaue Howard simply just cannot catch passes with Cohen there. But will be seeing less stacked boxes in an improved offense. However the 2nd round is too rich for me from a guy I remember people wanted to cut after his slow start last year...Will see games with 25+ touches no doubt ut will have games that we leave your head scratching.  
Raju Byfield

Cohen will steal pass game snaps limiting Howard's upsidePED ban on top of contract year will result in a much larger reduction in role than originally anticipated
