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.McCaffrey is in place as the starter, but let's not forget that Jonathan Stewart was still effective and received plenty of carries in this same role last season. Anderson is the better running back at this point in his and Stewart's careers and may earn additional touches as he finds his way in this offense.
Chet Gresham

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.Anderson should be better than Jonathon Stewart, and I expect Anderson will see a similar workload, which should result in better overall numbers.
Kevin Wheeler

4 game suspension Reduction in carries per game could help his health and efficiency.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. Most thought it was a terrible landing spot for Anderson in Carolina, but it was likely the best-case scenario. Most don't realize that Jonathan Stewart totaled 198 carries last year, which ranked inside the top-20 at the position. Anderson has always been one of the most efficient runners on first- and second-down while playing behind a mediocre offensive line. If he reaches the same amount of carries that Stewart did, he's going to finish as a top-24 running back. The best part is that you don't have to spend even a top-30 running back pick on him.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
