Adrian Peterson would 'definitely be open' to Saints return

"At the end of the 2017 season, as a result of a NFL mandated random drug test, Mark Ingram tested positive for a substance that was not a performance enhancing substance, nor an illegal substance, but a substance in fact permissible with the proper use exemption with the NFL", Ingram's agents, Paul Bobbitt and David Jones, said in the statement.

The New Orleans Saints are not as good a team with Mark Ingram unavailable. New Orleans couldn't have asked for more from their third-round pick.

New Orleans coach Sean Payton confirmed Thursday that Ingram will not take part in OTAs (organized team activities), which are scheduled for May 22-24, May 29-31 and June 4-7.

The NFL announced Ingram's suspension on Tuesday.

Most of Kamara's fantasy value, though, comes through the air rather than on the ground. With Ingram out, the Giants will have to shift their focus on stopping second-year running back Alvin Kamara.

Adrian Peterson ended last season on injured reserve due to a neck injury, but now, the veteran running back is healthy and ready to play. There is no reason to think that Kamara will catch fewer passes than previous year, especially given the fact that Ingram (71 targets in 2017) will be gone for the first four games.

Peterson may not have had a great run in New Orleans, but he's not opposed to a reunion. The three players in front of him averaged 6.4, 6.4, and 6.1 YPC.

Expect to see Kamara continue his success from past year in his second National Football League season.

Kamara reportedly led the National Football League in forced missed tackles as a running back with 29. He finished in the top fifteen in both evaded tackles and juke rate per Player Profiler, and, while defensive coordinators will now have a whole season of film on him, it's tough to stop what you can't tackle.
