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.The Bucs are still insisting Payton Barber is the "starter" in Tampa. A week ago, no one actually believed that would last, but with the way Barber has played in the preseason, it wouldn't be a surprise if he was held away from the starter role his entire rookie season.
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 or flex price.Jones can only hope his Tampa Bay debut rivals that of Doug Martin, who promptly procured 1,926 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012. Martin's replacement, however, must still fend off projected starter Peyton Barber for touches on an offense that authored a 62.4 pass percentage last year. He also won't factor much into the passing game, but the tough runner wields enough upside to draft if he keeps tumbling.
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. Not only have I been bullish on rookie running backs, but I'm bullish on the Bucs offense as a whole. When you have the firepower of Mike Evans, Desean Jackson, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate in front of you, it's not likely that a defense will ever make it their priority to stop the running back. It appears as-if Peyton Barber will open the year as the starter, though I'm still betting on talent winning out in the end. Barber has been on the roster the last two years, so the Bucs likely already know what they have, which is what led to them spending a high second-round pick on Jones. You'll deal with some growing pains, but I believe he'll have top-30 numbers at year's end.

PED ban on top of contract year will result in a much larger reduction in role than originally anticipated Should have been an automatic starter for the Bucs but will now split snaps with Peyton Barber until he proves he is ready

*Suspended 4 Games* 
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
4 game suspension Jones was a complete reach where TB drafted him, he does not have the size or skills to be a lead back. He should be part of a committee this year and beyond.
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  
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.If you believe that Peyton Barber is the starter in Tampa Bay, then you probably think this ranking is way too high. I believe it's going to be Jones, and even if it isn't immediately, it will be quickly. Jones is a talented back who should be able to succeed behind an improved Bucs offensive line that signed Ryan Jensen this offseason. Here's the problem though-Jameis Winston is suspended for three games, which means the passing offense will have to rely on Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitz has had success in the past, and fortunately for him he has Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson to throw to, but I wouldn't be shocked if we see this passing offense be relatively inefficient, which means defenses could focus more on the run.
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.Jones may split some work with Peyton Barber, but Jones is the better back and should win the majority of the work on a team that will run the ball and spread defenses out.
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.  
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.The Bucs do not have a true feature back right now but Jones has the talent to be the answer. It may take a while for him to prove he's the guy for the job, though.
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.
