*Suspended 4 Games* 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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 at that point.You may find this hard to believe, but Lewis was an RB1 last season. Granted, the Titans offense is much different from the Patriots offense and Lewis will have to complete with Henry for work, but he should be regarded as a solid flex play most weeks.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
If he missed four games last season, he'd still have finished No. 13 at RB for the season, and in '15 he was No. 13 despite actually missing four games - even if you factor in some regression because the overall NO backfield production was insane, you can make a fair case for ranking him back-end top 20 at RB  
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. Even with his suspension, Ingram is worthy of a top-20 running back selection. You should be expecting Lewis to walk right into the old DeMarco Murray role of the offense, as you don't go out and sign a running back in free agency for $20 million for no reason. It's possible that new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur simply didn't want Derrick Henry to be "the guy" of the offense, as he's not a great pass-catcher. If LaFleur installs an offense similar to the one Sean McVay used in L.A., then Lewis could turn out to be a steal at his current cost, though they have said Henry is the "starter." Lewis will be worth more in games when the Titans are down, while Henry will have his way in games they're winning, so it really comes down to how good their team is in 2018.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Even with the Saints using Alvin Kamara as much as they did last year, Ingram was still able to manage 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns, including seven top-10 finishes last year (one of them as number one). Unfortunately, he's got two things working against him this year-first, there's the likelihood that he's going to lose work to Kamara after his explosive season last year, and second, he's suspended for the first four games of the year. He should still have value once he returns from his suspension given the high-octane offense the Saints have and how good their offensive line is, but he's not the high-end RB2 he used to be.Lewis will be in a different role with the Titans this year, likely being the 1b to Derrick Henry's 1a in a running back committee rather than the role he had in New England. He's obviously an injury risk, and as I mentioned earlier, the potential lack of Jack Conklin will hurt the running game production from the Titans, but he'll be in a good situation and he's got loads of talent, finishing last year with an awesome 27.6% DVOA, behind only Alvin Kamara.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
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.Lewis landed with Tennessee and will split work with Derrick Henry. I like Lewis' ability as an inside and outside runner as well as a receiver, while I like Henry's ability to break long runs and smash defenders, but I expect his shortcomings as a receiver will hold him back.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Ingram is a proven producer and a potential championship-winning addition if his owners can survive not having him for five out of the first six weeks of the season. Lewis will take over the DeMarco Murray role for a Titans offense that has a ton of upside with Matt LaFleur as the play-caller.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Don't forget about Ingram after the first few rounds. He stockpiled 190.5 fantasy points in 12 games after New Orleans dealt Adrian Peterson-a mark eclipsed during the whole season by just seven other rushers-so he should make plenty of noise upon returning from a four-game suspension. Two postseason duds and eight of his dozen scores occurring inside the five cast some doubt over a full-fledged repeat, but anyone comfortable in finding a September seat-holder can snag 12 games of a low-end RB1 at a low-end RB2 price.Tabled for the first five weeks, Lewis made up for lost time by emerging as the RB7 from Week 6 onward. He averaged 5.0 YPC while snagging 32 of 36 targets, and he's now the primary pass-catching back in a two-headed monster with Derrick Henry. He's unlikely to replicate the 16.9 touches received over his final 11 games, but the efficient Lewis can nonetheless make a steady flex play or low-end RB2.
Anthony Cervino
Gridiron Experts
 Injury history is very risky, but if he plays he has tremendous upside
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Ingram will miss a handful of games due to a suspension, so his season long value takes a big hit. He's still a solid pick and can return RB1 value in any given week.Lewis is a dynamic fantasy back, but past injuries and role make him an overdraft risk.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
4 game suspension  
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. Lewis emerged as the lead back in New England in the second half of the 2018 season, but his role will likely be 3rd down back and change of pace back in Tennessee. He could still be a solid flex option.
