Ingram should see a lot of carries with the Saints trying to clinch the NFC South and the Buccaneers are 24th against fantasy running backs. Ingram is a RB1 this week.McCaffrey had 94 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown the last time these teams played. McCaffrey should be low-end RB1 for Week 17.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ingram was the more productive Saints running back on Sunday against the Falcons, totaling just 66 yards but finding the end zone. The Saints need to win (or have the Panthers lose) to clinch their division on Sunday against the Bucs, so expect business as usual for the Saints. The Bucs have struggled to stop the run this season, leaving Ingram as an elite option, as he almost always is.McCaffrey disappointed in Week 16 against the Bucs, gaining just 58 total yards. But he saw more rushing attempts than Jonathan Stewart and was far more effective. The Panthers still have an outside chance at the division, so expect them to play hard against Atlanta next weekend. That bodes extremely well for McCaffrey, as the Falcons struggle against pass-catching backs, allowing the most receptions to the position. That should keep McCaffrey as a borderline RB1 in Week 17.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 In a game that means everything to both the Panthers and the Falcons, expect McCaffrey to be used a lot this week. The Falcons continually allow massive yardage through the air to running backs, and now allowed 10 more receptions to them than any other team. This matchup was made for McCaffrey, who burned them for 94 yards and a touchdown the last time they played.
