Howard is obviously the bigger name. I think he has the most HRs on your list.
But as a Goldie owner let me tell you he has been absolutely sick the past couple of weeks. (#4 1B batting .310 with 3hrs and 1SB in last 14 days).
If you own Howard and can trade him for the name and get Goldie I would do it.
Craig and Hosmer would be a tier below.

Depends what you need. If you need HR and SLG%, Howard's your guy. Goldschmidt is having a great year and I would take him over the other three.

I think they are all solid options. I would rank them as

1. Goldschmidt because he's already having a solid year. The other three have been injured or have had down years.
2. Hosmer - I put him here because of his raw potential to be amazing. He did it last year and I'm really hoping he can have a great second half
3. Howard - I was considering putting him last b/c the Phils traded away their first half offense in Pence and Victorino. So far, he's basically only hit homers, but that might change as he gets more plate appearances.
4. Craig - Not a fan of him, personally.
