Saints | Mark Ingram injury update

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:26:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) suffered a broken hand in the team's Week 2 game and will miss at least four weeks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson likely will receive most of the work while Ingram is sidelined. Depending on the price, both players could be solid options on FantasyScore for Week 3.

Saints | Mark Ingram out a month

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 09:29:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) is expected to miss roughly a month after injuring his hand in Week 2, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's injury boosts the value of Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson in the Saints' backfield. Both could be good buys in Week 3 at FantasyScore against the Minnesota Vikings at home.

Saints | Mark Ingram stands out

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:36:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram had 13 rushes for 60 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1

Fantasy Tip: It was one of his most productive games of his career. The team faces a tough matchup in the Browns in Week 2. If Ingram's price tag doesn't rise too much on FantasyScore, he could be a low-end RB2.

Saints | Mark Ingram dominating

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 17:44:07 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is averaging 7.1 yards per carry during the preseason and has remained on the field in passing situations.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram appears to have earned first crack at being the team's early-down back, and if the Saints continue to let him play on some passing downs, it will help prevent defenses from focusing on stopping the run when he is in the game. He will likely never become a true lead back in New Orleans' spread-the-wealth offense, but Ingram has a chance to be a solid flex play this year.

Saints | Mark Ingram's role evolving

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 19:50:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has never had a touchdown reception during the regular season, but he took a screen pass for a 23-yard touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has looked like a more decisive runner during the preseason, and the fact that he is being used a little in the passing game is encouraging. The Saints rotate their picks too frequently and throw the ball too much to make Ingram more than a RB4 on draft day, but when you do decide to roll the dice on one of New Orleans' running backs, Ingram looks like he has the most upside at this point.

Saints | Pierre Thomas third in pecking order

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 05:30:10 -0700

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson have pulled ahead of RB Pierre Thomas at running back.

Fantasy Tip: As has been the case previously in New Orleans, the running back committee will make all three options frustrating for fantasy football owners. The pecking order could easily change before Week 1, too. All three rushers may be nothing more than flex plays most weeks, and Thomas will definitely be more valuable in PPR affairs.

Saints | Mark Ingram will be core player

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 16:31:26 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will be a core player in the Saints' offense this year, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

Fantasy Tip: This is the year for Ingram to prove his disappointing career has been a fluke thus far. He'll likely see most of the running work while splitting time with RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas. It's still best to be cautious with him at this point. He's an RB4 at best in standard leagues.

Saints | Mark Ingram more focused

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:11:56 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has shown increased focus in offseason practices this year and has been more intense during workouts as he enters his contract year. Ingram knows he must work hard, because RBs Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet wait in the wings. Head coach Sean Payton noted that Ingram did a good job of tuning out some of the criticism last year, when his 4.9 yards per carry led the team in 2013.

Saints | Mark Ingram to use contract as motivation

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 11:35:26 -0700

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.

Saints | Declined Mark Ingram's option for financial reasons

Wed, 07 May 2014 14:13:54 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram's fifth-year option was declined for financial reasons and not a lack of faith, according to Saints general manager Mickey Loomis.
