Saints | Mark Ingram to use contract as motivation

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is more motivated after the team declined to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. "Like they said, they really like me as a player," Ingram said. "Just the (salary) number was a little high for what a running back gets on the free-agent market."

Fantasy Tip: Ingram came on strong at the tail end of last season, but the problem is Khiry Robinson was even better, and the Saints still have Pierre Thomas in the fold. The Saints may be more ground-based in 2014, but the presence of Robinson, especially, will hurt Ingram's value.
