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.

Mark Ingram suspended four games for PEDs

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.

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.
