NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Saints running back Mark Ingram has been suspended four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

This is huge news that is likely to push Alvin Kamara to the top of the first-round in fantasy drafts, while Ingram himself should fall into the middle rounds. The suspension has been looming and the Saints were apparently preparing for the suspension to be handed down, though they didn't add a running back of significance, meaning they believe that Kamara can shoulder the load. While Kamara obviously gets a boost, it's also an underrated boost to Drew Brees' value in fantasy drafts, as Kamara is better as a receiver than he is an early-down back.
