 He's back and our Scout Fantasy founder and former #1 ranked player in the World, Ian Ritchie named him his comeback player of the year.

Ingram is quickly getting crowded out in this backfield despite still being the lead back. The additions of Adrian Peterson and rookie Alvin Kamara will make it tough for Ingram to reach his potential this season, but Peterson's health and Kamara's rookieness do keep me in Ingram's corner overall.Martin should remain the lead back after his three-game suspension. He will likely concede touches to a few different backs, but I think he'll hold onto the lead role.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Ingram has been a perennial fantasy stud, but the arrival of Adrian Peterson has taken some shine off him, and he's priced accordingly. If you believe (as I do) that Peterson is washed up, then you should take a long hard look at Ingram.Martin is suspended the first three games after failing a PED test. Very inconsistent throughout his career, there is a real risk that he does not immediately return to a starters' role.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
2016 first 1,000 plus rushing season, 5.1 YPC; finally added receiving TDs to the mix (4); top 10 in red zone touches for third year in a row; production came while Hightower took 133 carries, so hope remains despite Peterson signing. Facing three-game suspension; followed up stellar 2015 campaign with horrid injury-plagued 2016 and a 2.9 YPC; contract year could get him back on track, but far from certain; weak o-line a concern.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He had a career year in most categories, but he won't get enough touches to be a RB1. "Mark Ingram fantastic job of setting up blocks on screen pass. Has really developed as pass catcher in recent years." https://twitter.com/MikeTriplett/status/891687370151669760 While this clip may not be jaw dropping, it is a perfect example of why he should be considered the most complete back on the Saints roster.Bucs GM Jason Licht said Sunday there are no assurances suspended RB Doug Martin will regain his starting job following his three-game ban.

 The Muscle Hamster could be a dud or he could be one of the biggest steals in the draft. I'm currently leaning on steal
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Saints did add Adrian Peterson, but even last season with Hightower, the Saints were still able to support two solid fantasy running backs. Ingram should be started nearly every week even if he doesn't end up the head dog in the running back committee, and should AP go down, we are looking at a surefire RB1.The Muscle Hampster has been fully healthy just two seasons in his career. He was a top 12 fantasy player in both of those seasons. Granted, we know he is missing 3 games to start the year, but he apparently looks better than ever and has put the demons behind him. If we see the good version of Martin, he could end up a top 5 running back come playoff time.

Ingram is the back to own in New Orleans, as he will be more productive than the already washed up Peterson. Ingram had over 1,300 all purpose yards in 2016. The only thing stopping a repeat is Sean Payton. Auction Value $18 Martin will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension. When he returns, he will likely share time with Jacquizz Rodgers. Auction Value $4
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ingram was the lead back in New Orleans this year, finishing with 1,043 yards rushing, 319 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns. He will lose more touches to veteran RB Adrian Peterson and rookie RB Alvin Kamara, so he is more of a RB3 this year.Martin has looked very good in OTAs. He does have to serve a 3-game suspension, but it looks like he should retain the starting role when he returns and have a chance to be a low-end flex on an explosive offense that figures to use a RBBC.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite playing in a clear timeshare last year where he failed to see more than 18 carries in all but one game, Ingram finished as the No. 10 running back. Sure, Peterson is going to steal some work, probably slightly more than Tim Hightower did. But getting him here as the 20th running back off the board is a steal.Coming back to a team with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, and Chris Godwin will be a welcoming sight for Martin, who only has three games left on his suspension. We've seen a hit-or-miss Martin over his career, but he has finished as a top-three running back twice. He could be a steal at this point.
