New Orleans does have a capable replacement in the electrifying Alvin Kamara, who was named the NFL Rookie of the Year last season.

Ingram has rushed for over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons and has registered 154 receptions over the past three seasons, including a career-high 58 in 2017. As Fantasy Guru's Graham Barfield points out, Kamara out-snapped Ingram over the Saints' final eight games last season. The suspension has also forced the Saints, who have a desire to feature Kamara more and more prominently in the offense, to scale back any trade intentions for Ingram. Last year, undrafted rookie Trey Edmunds made the roster as a special-teams player and also carried the ball nine times for 48 yards and a touchdown. Kamara will be well worth a first-round pick in this summer's fantasy drafts. May.

It looks like the New Orleans Saints are going to have to start their 2018 season without their leading rusher from 2017 on the field.
