Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Ingram has been effective this year, averaging 4.9 yards per carry and totaling nine receptions over his first two games. He's essentially in a time share with both Alvin Kamara and Adrian Peterson, as Ingram saw 36 snaps as compared to 32 combined for Kamara and Peterson last week against the Patriots. But Ingram was able to excel last season in a timeshare, and should be able to do so again this season. The Panthers defense has been solid so far this season, albeit in two soft matchups against the Bills and 49ers, but they've yet to be tested. Expect Ingram to have his usual involvement, which should be enough for high-end RB3 production.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 The Saints backfield is a mess right now and it seems there is no clarity coming any time soon. Ingram played the most snaps among the running backs, but the split was 36 for Ingram and 32 for the combination of Alvin Kamara and Adrian Peterson. The Panthers front-seven allowed just 3.8 YPC last season and are coming off a game in which they held LeSean McCoy to nine yards on 12 carries. Ingram will always have a shot to score in a high-scoring offense, but we don't even know if he'll get goal-line carries at this point.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
McCoy struggled last week in Carolina and he has a tough matchup this week, but I would have a hard time sitting him against any opponent.Ingram has a tough road to haul this week against a Panthers D that is second against fantasy running backs and he is stuck in a RBBC. He is a low-upside flex option.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
McCoy was shut down by the Panthers last week and gets another painful matchup this week, but the Bills do play better at home. I expect we'll see a better game from Shady this week.
