4 game suspension Each season from 2012-16, two Broncos running backs had at least 100 carries. Coach Vance Joseph wants a return to that divided workload. "We want two or three guys to be our main core backs," Joseph said during minicamp last month. Freeman is the most likely challenger to supplant Booker, or at the very least, be the top reserve. He scored 60 rushing touchdowns at Oregon and caught 79 passes so he is not totally foreign to playing an all-around game. denverpost.com

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.Freeman gets a strong defense to keep games close and a weak backfield to compete for touches against. Sign me up.

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.Devontae Booker has not taken over in Denver so I'm worried he never will. Freeman is a way better value in drafts and I like his talent, so I'm ranking him higher
Bobby Sylvester

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.With C.J. Anderson gone, you may expect Freeman to jump right in and touch the ball 250 times, but that may not be the case. Apparently Booker and even Henderson will have a crack at winning the job this preseason, so until then, keep your expectations reasonable. Still yet, if Freeman wins the job, he could be among the top two or three rookie backs.
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. Another rookie running back? Yep. While there are some who are worried about Devontae Booker, you shouldn't be one of them. He legitimately played behind the running back they just cut (C.J. Anderson), so what makes you think he'd start in front of a guy they just spent a high third-round pick on? Freeman may not be elite at anything, but he's really good at everything. He's a no-nonsense runner who knows how to follow his blocks, similar to Jordan Howard. In an offense that likely takes a step forward, Freeman should finish as a top-24 running back in his first season.

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.
