2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Beyond Kamara and Ingram, there are mostly question marks in the New Orleans backfield, but Jonathan Williams stands out as the most likely to receive early season carries in Ingram's absence. Williams didn't play in 2017 after his suspension and subsequent release from Buffalo. His release came as a bit of a surprise after he was relatively effective during his rookie season. Williams amassed just 94 yards and 1 touchdown, but served as the "big back" as a complement to the workhorse, LeSean McCoy. Because of his size and strength, Williams appears to be best equipped to fill in for the suspended Ingram. As a late round flier, Williams could be an option for a fantasy team weak at running back.

Jonathan Williams making a move?
RB could be poised to replace Mark Ingram during his suspension
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 13, 5:40 pm

New Orleans
Mark Ingram isn’t making it easy to forget that he will be suspended for the first four games of the season. It seems like he has a carry every day that makes you take note of his presence on the field. He just moves differently than the guys contending to fill in for him. As far as that battle goes, it looks like Jonathan Williams is making a run up the depth chart. Hopefully, he gets a chance to play against Arizona’s starters so we can find out how good he really is. (The New Orleans Advocate)

FFToday's Take: HC Sean Payton has stated multiple times he does not expect Alvin Kamara's workload to increase much during Ingram's absence, leaving the door for someone like Williams to get some solid playing time in September. It's not inconceivable someone with as much talent as Williams could impress enough during Ingram's absence to carve out a bit of a role for himself even after Ingram returns. Still, he's a late-round lottery ticket in deeper leagues at best.
