Saints | Mark Ingram surpasses 100-yard mark

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:33:35 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed for 105 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7. He also caught four passes for five yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of the last two games and has recorded three touchdowns during that span. He will continue to receive a significant amount of carries and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back next week.

Saints | Mark Ingram finishes with big game

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:01:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 25 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions and he added five receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: It's like a cloud was removed from Ingram's head when Adrian Peterson was shipped to Arizona. While Peterson wasn't cutting into Ingram's time, perhaps he was not performing or was uncomfortable looking over his shoulder at the future Hall of Famer. It was smooth sailing in Week 6, and fantasy owners hope that continues in Week 7 in Green Bay and beyond.

Saints | Mark Ingram rushes for 45 yards

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 10:06:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed for 45 yards on 14 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4. He also caught four passes for 17 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has been receiving a majority of the carries during games but is sharing time with Alvin Kamara. He will be off next week but could be a flex option against the Detroit Lions in Week 6 since he will be involved in the run and pass game.

Saints | Mark Ingram totals 16 touches in win

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:40:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 56 yards in Week 3 at Carolina and he added two receptions for 30 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram continues to lead the way in backfield touches, totaling 16, while Adrian Peterson had 11 total touches and rookie Alvin Kamara managed five. As long as Ingram continues to lead the team in touches he is the top fantasy option, but Kamara might have the most upside of the triumvirate for the long term.

Saints | Mark Ingram totals 12 touches

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:58:59 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed eight times for 52 yards in Week 2 against the Patriots while adding four receptions for 24 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram continues to remain at the top of the New Orleans running back totem pole, as he had 12 total touches to eight for Adrian Peterson and four for Alvin Kamara. Nothing is expected to change heading into Week 3 in Carolina.

Saints | Mark Ingram salvages Week 1 outing

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 20:34:50 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram didn't contribute much on the ground in the club's Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 11, against the Minnesota Vikings, rushing for just 17 yards on six carries, but he also managed to haul in all five of his targets for 54 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: Most interestingly, Ingram actually played less snaps (26) than rookie Alvin Kamara (31), but at least the former Heisman Trophy winner was able to give his fantasy owners something in the season opener. Based on how he was used, though, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him trend down towards RB3 territory. However, he still may be useful his next time out when the Saints partake in a likely high-scoring affair opposite the Patriots.

Saints | Mark Ingram a fixture in passing game

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 10:45:17 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been very active in the passing game throughout training camp, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's role in the Saints' backfield has been in question ever since the team signed Adrian Peterson, but it really shouldn't change all that much. Alvin Kamara was drafted with an eye on turning him into a satellite back in the Darren Sproles/Reggie Bush mode, while Peterson gives the team a physical edge it hasn't had in a while. Ingram's role shouldn't change much, making him a high-upside - albeit likely inconsistent - RB2 in 2017.

Saints | Mark Ingram perfect as a red zone receiver

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 19:35:38 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram hauled in all 10 of his targets inside the 20 last season, making him only one of five players with at least five such targets to catch every one.

Fantasy Tip: Adrian Peterson has made a lot of noise recently about proving himself as a receiver, but Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara are better equipped to handle that work. With that said, at least 22 percent of the Saints' targets have been directed at the running back position over the last 10 seasons, and the average during the span is 26 percent. In short, there should be plenty of opportunities for all three backs to get their fill of catches. Ingram should be considered a high-upside RB3.

Saints | Mark Ingram learning from Adrian Peterson

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 08:50:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is competing with RB Adrian Peterson but is also learning from him. Ingram noted that he and Peterson recently discussed how to balance patience, vision, decisiveness and aggression when trying to get first-down yardage on third and short. Ingram said putting his head down and barreling forward toward the first sign of an opening has been his inclination, but sometimes a choice he regretted because, "If you would have followed your read and followed the guard outside, you would have had a 30-yard run." Ingram recalled Peterson telling him, "I've noticed that in that time you just have to slow down and trust your eyes."

Fantasy Tip: Ingram will still be a factor, but his touches will be affected by Peterson's arrival. Ingram has been a better receiver of late, though, and that could give him the nod on third downs. Ingram is a high-end RB3, but if the team's approach shifts more to the running game, he could sneak into the RB2 area.

Saints | Saints using 'three-headed monster' at RB?

Mon, 01 May 2017 19:30:44 -0700

The New Orleans Saints' plan for the upcoming season is "likely to recreate their 2009 and 2011 potent backfield attack" when they implemented a "three-headed monster" at running back. This came to fruition when they drafted RB Alvin Kamara, who is a "prototypical third-down back" to complement RBs Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson. Kamara could be in line to play a "Reggie Bush/Darren Sproles-type role."

Fantasy Tip: This could be a frustrating storyline for those who end up drafting Mark Ingram, seeing as he's proven he can be a productive workhorse back when he is healthy. At the same time, this development also indicates Peterson could turn out to be an excellent value pick if he's getting a good amount of work around the goal line. As for Kamara, owners might want to take a wait-and-see approach with the third-round pick.

Saints | Travaris Cadet to see reduced role?

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 19:27:02 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet will compete with RB Alvin Kamara for the third-down back role while RB Adrian Peterson and RB Mark Ingram serve as the traditional backs, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: After the Saints traded up for Kamara, he is going to be given a chance to show what he can do. Cadet's value was already limited to deeper PPR formats, and the addition of Kamara likely makes him a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Saints | Mark Ingram fine with Peterson addition

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:49:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is fine with the team's signing of RB Adrian Peterson if his addition helps the team win. Ingram said he expected the team would add another running back and is not concerned about sharing playing time with Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram probably will be the starting running back for the Saints but likely will see less carries than he did in the past. He should still have a role in the passing game in 2017 and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Mark Ingram will be the starter

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 13:56:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram would still be the lead running back even if free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) signed with the Saints, according to The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's stock would take a hit, but he will remain the Saints' most appealing fantasy running back if the Peterson signing does come to fruition. As stated earlier, Ingram and Peterson should be viewed as an RB2 and RB3, respectively, if they are both healthy and if Peterson signs.

Saints | Mark Ingram productive at home, on road

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 16:49:12 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed for 514 yards and three touchdowns at home this season and rushed for 529 yards and three touchdowns on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram had to share some of the work with Tim Hightower near the end of the season but posted solid numbers in 2016. Ingram has a decent chance to receive most of the work at running back next season and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Mark Ingram posts first 1,000-yard season

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:32:46 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 20 times for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He went over 1,000 yards for the first time in his NFL career.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram stayed healthy and was outstanding for fantasy owners down the stretch, including 193 rushing yards and three scores in the final two games. He looks like a legitimate RB1 in all fantasy leagues heading into 2017.

Saints | Mark Ingram scores two TDs

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 23:26:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 18 times for 90 yards and scored two touchdowns in a 31-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: For one week, at least, the Saints running game was back on track. Ingram had a decent day, and he goes into the 2017 offseason as a possible RB2 or RB3 on fantasy lists. What prevents him from being an RB1 is the presence of RB Tim Hightower, who had eight carries and 29 yards.

Saints | Mark Ingram totals 92 yards

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 21:57:31 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) rushed 17 times for 78 yards in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He also added two receptions for 14 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram had his third-highest yardage total from scrimmage since Week 3, but he has been held out of the end zone for each of the past three outings. He should be treated as more of a low-end RB2 heading into Week 16.

Saints | Mark Ingram not on injury report

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 18:57:56 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and he isn't listed on the Week 15 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has RB2 upside, but his inconsistent production and a tough matchup against Arizona make him better suited as a flex play in Week 15.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee, toe) returned to practice and was a limited participant Thursday, Dec. 15.

Saints | Mark Ingram does not practice

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 15:20:07 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee, toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was able to play in the last game, but owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 15 game. He has been sharing work with Tim Hightower over the last several weeks and has been inconsistent with his rushing yards recently. He could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in deeper leagues.

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:52:36 -0800

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 07:31:03 -0800

Confirming a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) will play in Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram participated on a limited basis in two out of three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been productive of late but should be considered a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 this afternoon based on Tampa Bay's recent defensive play.

Saints | Mark Ingram expected to play vs Bucs

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 22:33:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) will play in the team's Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram didn't do much in practice this week, but in a key divisional game he's going to try to gut it out. The Bucs have been tough defensively of late, but Ingram can still be deployed as a low-end RB2 or quality RB3.

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 20:27:45 -0800

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: After logging a limited session the previous day, the fact that he didn't take the field Thursday makes Ingram's status worth keeping an eye on. He will be a low-end RB2 in Week 14 if he suits up.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Saints | Mark Ingram limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:06:20 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was limited last week, too, but that didn't keep him from playing. He and Tim Hightower figure to continue to split playing time out of the backfield. Their matchup is tough this week, though, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have only yielded one rushing touchdown to the position over their last five games.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran seven times for 37 yards Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:24:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) will play in Week 13's game against the Detroit Lions, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is coming off of a Week 12 performance where he accumulated 146 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards and two combined touchdowns versus the Los Angeles Rams. Although he is slated to split carries with Tim Hightower this week, he should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Dec. 2, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to split playing time with Tim Hightower this afternoon but is still worthy of consideration as a high-upside RB2.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:51:06 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He likely will share snaps with Tim Hightower if he plays in the game but can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Mark Ingram back at practice Friday

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 11:47:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) participated in the open portion of practice Friday, Dec. 2, after not practicing earlier in the week.

Fantasy Tip: It bodes well for the possibility he will suit up Week 13 against the Detroit Lions, although Tim Hightower is a good bet to receive more touches given the nature of Ingram's injury. Ingram is a high-upside RB2 in what has quickly become a very good rushing attack, while Hightower is more a lower-end RB2 option.

Saints | Mark Ingram absent from practice

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 14:09:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) missed his second straight practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's availability is starting to get worrisome. If he's able to practice tomorrow it would be a sigh of relief, but be prepared to fire up Tim Hightower incase Ingram can't take the field.

Saints | No practice for Mark Ingram

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 14:21:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It's early in the week, so don't go into panic mode just yet. He has a few more days to practice, and even if he's limited that will be a good sign for him being able to play this weekend. If he cannot play then Tim Hightower would immediately become one of the best sleeper starts and value plays for Week 13.

Saints | Mark Ingram finds end zone twice

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:45:46 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 14 times for 146 yards, including two touchdown runs of 61 and 10 yards, in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was knocked out in the team's last game against the Carolina Panthers, so to see him snap back after 10 days is very encouraging. He added a third touchdown on a 21-yard pass completion from Drew Brees, so Ingram can definitely be used in flex status as a RB/WR.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) is active for Week 12's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is expected to split the carries with Tim Hightower in Sunday's game. Both players are worthy of consideration as RB2 or flex options in the majority of fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram will have to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He would share work with Tim Hightower if he is active for the game and could be a low-end No. 2 or a flex option in most leagues.

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 13:57:07 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) has been listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is fully expected to play after practicing all week, but he has yet to pass the concussion protocol. Tim Hightower would be in line for 20 touches and a very good RB2 if Ingram is forced to miss the contest, but both should be considered low-end RB2 options at best if the former Heisman Trophy winner suits up.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) said Wednesday, Nov. 23, that he will play in the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams, although he remains in the concussion protocol after being knocked out of the Week 11 game.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is still a question mark for Week 12, and the matchup isn't terribly favorable. If Ingram cannot go it will be Tim Hightower picking up the slack. For fantasy purposes, avoid Ingram until he can officially return and practice in full.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was expected to be fine this week, and such appears to be true. The Los Angeles Rams have been among the best against opposing RBs the last five weeks, though, and Ingram is a suspect flex play with Tim Hightower sharing the load so well.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram may still have to clear concussion protocol depending on the diagnosis, but regardless, it sounds like he should be ready for Week 11. He is a low-end RB2 with Tim Hightower eating into his touches.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (undisclosed) was helped off the field by trainers against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for an update on Ingram's status. If he misses any time, Tim Hightower would likely assume the lead back role and become a solid RB2.

Saints | Mark Ingram facing tough matchup

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:31:34 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will meet the Carolina Panthers in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 17. He struggled with just 51 yards on 16 carries (3.2 yards per carry) in the first meeting in Week 6 in New Orleans.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram posted two total touchdowns and a 171 total yards from scrimmage in Week 9, but he struggled last week against the Denver Broncos. The Panthers rank second in the NFL against the rush, allowing just 79.0 yards per game. Ingram is still worth using as a low-end RB2 in all fantasy leagues, but temper your expectations.

Saints | New Orleans to stick with RBBC for now

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 11:08:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram totaled 171 yards on 17 touches and earned the game ball in a Week 9 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Sean Payton is apparently content riding the hot hand for the time being. "It was good to see Mark run. The week before, Tim (Hightower) gave us a jolt. And we'll continue to look at each game and plan accordingly," Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: It's disappointing for Ingram owners, but it is not terribly surprising. Payton has long felt comfortable playing multiple backs, so owners should plan a fair amount of inconsistency from both Ingram and Hightower as the Saints face defenses that can stop the run better than the 49ers. Consider both players high-risk, high-reward RB2s for now.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 15 times for 158 yards and a 75-yard touchdown in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He also added two receptions for 13 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was benched in Week 8 for fumbling the ball, but he was back with a bang and remains a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues. He'll face the Denver Broncos in Week 10.

Saints | Mark Ingram to remain involved

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 11:39:22 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will still have a "key role" in the offense going forward, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Payton claimed he wasn't planning on benching Ingram for the rest of the game after his first-quarter fumble, but something is amiss in New Orleans. While Ingram fumbled for the second consecutive week, Payton has been a staunch supporter of his back for some time now. Nevertheless, this appears to be a hot-hand backfield going forward, although both could perform well in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers' sieve-like run defense.
