Saints | Sean Payton wants Mark Ingram back

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:00:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram is coveted by head coach Sean Payton, and Payton is hoping the team can find a way to re-sign him. "Hopefully he's someone that's back in the black and gold. Because he's been a big part of our success offensively," Payton said of Ingram, who finally had a breakout year in his fourth NFL season, running for 964 yards and nine touchdowns and earning his first Pro Bowl invite as an alternate.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints will have to get creative with their salary cap in order to bring back Ingram. At first glance, our guess would be that Ingram moves on and Khiry Robinson becomes the Saints' feature back in 2015. If that's the case, Robinson will be an intriguing RB3 with upside for more in this potent offense.

Saints | Mark Ingram's status depends on cap

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:01:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram's future with the team depends on Ingram's market value in free agency and the team's lack of salary-cap flexibility, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. Loomis didn't rule out re-signing Ingram if the two sides can agree on his value before March 10. Ingram rushed for a career-high 964 yards last season and will be one of the top free-agent running backs on the market.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints' first priority is getting under the salary cap before free agency starts, so it looks increasingly likely that Ingram will be on the open market. He'll be a welcome addition to any team, but his fantasy value is to be determined until his future is clearer. If he departs New Orleans, Khiry Robinson will be a hot target in fantasy drafts as an RB2.

Saints | Mark Ingram wants to return to Saints

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 15:37:31 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, wants to return to the team next year, and he thinks the interest is mutual. Ingram ran for 964 yards on 226 attempts and nine touchdowns last year, which were all career highs. His 74.2 yards per game ranked him eighth in the league.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints said late last season that they were prepared to let Ingram test the free-agent waters, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. If he doesn't return, Khiry Robinson could be in line for some nice fantasy success in New Orleans. If Ingram returns, he should be expected to remain the lead back in a backfield that would remain crowded.

Saints | Mark Ingram expected to play

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:08:37 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (ankle, toe) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram had a terrific performance in Week 13 and should continue to receive most of the carries in the running game. He will be playing a Carolina Panthers run defense that has improved some over the last few weeks but still has had problems with running backs during the season. Ingram costs $6,800 on FantasyScore and could be an attractive option for owners.

Saints | New Orleans RBs practice

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:07:18 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (ankle, toe) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 4. RBs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram ($6,800, 13.6%) should still get the majority of work out of the backfield with Pierre Thomas ($5,500, 11%) and Cadet likely being used mostly on passing downs. Robinson's usage may be limited after his prolonged absence, so it's best to stay away from him this week. Ingram and Thomas are the best bets for success against a subpar Carolina Panthers run defense.

Saints | Mark Ingram limited

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 14:20:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (ankle, toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram will likely see most of the snaps in Week 14 if he is able to go, even with Khiry Robinson getting eased back in this week. Ingram will cost $6,800 this week in FantasyScore, but there could be some risk there with both the injury and Robinson back in the picture in some capacity.

Saints | Khiry Robinson to be eased back in

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 14:51:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm), who is expected to return in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers, is expected to be eased back into the backfield, especially since RB Mark Ingram has done well in a leading role. RB Pierre Thomas also returned a week ago. Ingram rushed 23 times for 122 yards in the Week 13 win, which was his fourth 100-yard game with Robinson out. Robinson was running well before he was hurt, and his 5.2 yards per carry rank second in the league if he was eligible.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers present a juicy matchup for the Saints running backs. Unfortunately, it won't be wise to use Robinson, even at what should be a cheap FantasyScore price, until he's back in the running back rotation receiving substantial touches.

Saints | Saints' top three RBs back on the field

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 13:59:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram (shoulder), RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and RB Travaris Cadet (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram likely will receive most of his work in the running game in Week 13 while Thomas probably will be used more in the passing game. Cadet will also see some playing time. Ingram ($6,600) and Thomas ($5,200) are options on FantasyScore, but owners may want to lower their expectations since the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has recently played well against opposing running backs.

Saints | Saints' top three RBs practice

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:10:14 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram (shoulder), Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram probably will continue to receive a majority of the carries with Thomas being more involved in the passing game. Cadet probably will receive time if one of the other running backs needs a break. Ingram costs $6,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to lower their expectations since the Pittsburgh Steelers have held opposing running backs in check over the last four weeks. Thomas costs $5,200 and could be a flex option because of his receiving ability. Owners should not consider using Cadet even though he only costs $3,200.

Saints | Mark Ingram practices in full again

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:28:36 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints' backfield is beat up, but Ingram ($6,600) is easily the healthiest back of the lot, and he'll probably see the vast majority of touches against the Baltimore Ravens. He may have a tough time returning value at FantasyScore, though, against the Ravens' formidable rush defense.
