The Broncos did add Jamaal Charles, but he might not even make the roster. This is Anderson's offense and you'd better believe they will make him a workhorse as they did before his injury. It is worth mentioning that Denver's SOS was #1 toughest in the league before his injury, yet he was still performing like an RB2.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.

Jamaal Charles has been added to this backfield, which makes things difficult, but I'll continue to side with Anderson, while Charles isn't even allowed to practice yet.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.

A torn meniscus shut down Anderson midway through 2016. This year he is part of a three-man backfield heading into camp. Auction Value $7 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

Anderson had a great start to the season, but tailed off and missed nine games due to injury. The Broncos did make some positive changes to the offensive line, he could have some upside in 2017 if he can stay healthy.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Anderson has averaged a massive 4.56 yards per carry in his career, while those around him over the last couple of years have totaled a measly 3.90 yards per carry with the team. The Broncos beefed up their offensive line this off-season via free agency (Former Cowboys guard Ron Leary) as well as using their first-round pick on tackle Garrett Bolles. The Broncos paid a lot of money to keep Anderson around last off-season.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.
