Jordan Howard below Engram makes no sense to me
There is a ton of dynamism in dynasty rankings even beyond the individual player evaluations and I think you picked a tough comparison.
The two are tough comps because of both age and expected production.
To illustrate the point I'd say elsewhere on this list, to a certain extent:
Ingram is to Howard as Brady is to Goff.
The Brady - Goff comparison amplifies the idea but I think it helps examine the same effect.
Brady and Goff are 14/15 on the QB list and I agree they are about properly placed but there are rosters where I would have Brady rated way above Goff and others where I'd have Goff above Brady or maybe not even value Brady at all.
Expected production in the upcoming year, expected development in the future, projected future situation (players and coaches surrounding), all come into play.
Would one or two years of strong differentiation such as Brady has provided in the past worth the same as 15 years of averagish production with the hope/expectation it develops into more at some point?
Its really a roster dependent decision for me.
Of course the rub is if you are somebody who has extreme views.............Brady is done now, or Goff is a future superstar who the offense will focus on eventually, then there is no comparison and other rankings won't compute.
Circle back to the RBs now, and if you are a strong Howard believer, think he is elite, and the Bears offense productive enough that he has a strong chance of producing in the same range as Ingram going forward then Doug's rank wouldn't make sense. Or, if you think the Saints offense will be poor, or that Kamara will command AND BE CAPABLE of a much larger workload than Ingram going forward then JH should be much higher for you.
My own rankings are certainly different overall than Dougs but I think that Doug's relationship of Ingram to Howard is about right for me in the same way Brady and Goff are about right. I see Ingram's role and the NO offense/production as fairly certain for the upcoming year whereas I think Howard's role and the Bears offense has a much wider range of possibilities. I don't know what the Bear's new staff will put forward, but consider............ if they were to give Cohen a Chris Thompson-like role, which he may be capable of, then the value of Howard will probably come down to how well the Bears offense overall performs and how well they can score running TDs.
When I look at the two I personally am comparing the value of a fairly solid RB1 for a couple of years to the value of another RB with a wide range of outcomes of which I see mid-lower RB2 as the middle outcome for '18 .........but with a much longer career potential.
There are plenty of Howard believers out there who would understandably have him much higher if they were on board with him as RB 6 - 8 last year and think it was a fluke he underperformed, perhaps you are one. I personally thought he was one of the most risky picks in the draft at the top of the 2nd round and see him as even riskier this year.
The overall point I'm trying to make though is dynasty ranks are tough and dynamic. Tweak a view of one player a bit, the other player a bit, and suddenly there is alot of space in between. If you are an owner who generally values youth over vet production or vice verse that's another gap. Even if your view is mainstream on both, you may yourself be roster dependent when it comes to the values of each as I am with Brady/Goff.
