I like Crowell, but I also like Duke Johnson. These two will continue to split time, but Crowell should also continue to be slightly ahead of Johnson in standard leagues and has some real upside with Hue Jackson committed to the run.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.

What do you get when you mix an average running back with a great offensive line? An RB2, that's Crowell in a nutshell. Most point to his yards per carry (4.8) being great last year, but he totaled 48 percent of his rushing yards on just 16 carries. Their offensive line may just be the best in the NFL at this point, making him an intriguing option.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.

 He's currently still in New Orleans, but rumors are surfacing about possible trades. If he's dealt and where he ends up could have drastic impact on his draft position.

Crowell was solid this year with 952 yards rushing, 319 yards receiving and 7 touchdowns. He'll have competition from RB Duke Johnson, but he could be an excellent flex option on a team that should improve dramatically this off-season. 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.
