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 | Mark Ingram has mixed emotions

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 23:32:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has expressed mixed feelings about the cuts made by the team over the last several days, but he understands these cuts could lead to a bigger role for him in the offense. "It's crazy to think about, and it's shocking with everything going on. But it's just the business side of everything. Those guys in the front office are doing what they think is best to have success this year," Ingram said.

Saints | Pierre Thomas ruled out

Fri, 03 Jan 2014 13:31:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (chest) did not practice again Friday, Jan. 3, and is ruled out for the team's Wild Card game this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram will be used in tandem to replace Thomas, and Khiry Robinson could also be involved to a lesser extend against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Saints | Could release a RB this offseason

Sat, 21 Dec 2013 08:46:13 -0800

The New Orleans Saints could consider releasing RB Mark Ingram or Pierre Thomas this offseason because RB Khiry Robinson has received a bigger role in the offense. The team would save around $1.4 million if Ingram is released and $2.9 million if Thomas is released.

Saints | Mark Ingram slowed

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:37:11 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram had only 25 yards on six carries in the team's Week 11 win over the San Francisco 49ers after his big game a week ago.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram remains third on the depth chart behind Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. It'll be maddening to rely on him for fantasy purposes unless the Saints are ahead by a large margin.

Saints | Mark Ingram has career day

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 10:22:02 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram had a career-high 145 rushing yards on 14 carries in the team's Week 10 win over the Dallas Cowboys. It was his first 100-yard game of his three-year career. The Saints finished with 242 yards rushing on 38 carries.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram looked the best he's looked in ages, but don't get too excited just yet. Most of his work came with the Saints up by a large margin, and the Cowboys' defense was missing several key starters. Keep Ingram on your radar if you're desperate at running back, but also remember that he'll continue to fight for touches with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.

Saints | Mark Ingram silent in return

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 15:33:16 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) made his return in Week 9 against the New York Jets, but he carried just four times for 19 yards and he did not have any receptions while being targeted just once.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram did little, but at least he did something. He is unplayable if you're a fantasy owner, though. The Saints likely wanted to walk across the field and try to get Chris Ivory back. He wrecked the Saints rushing defense for 139 yards and a touchdown.

Saints | Mark Ingram to miss game

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 08:46:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Pierre Thomas likely will receive more carries with Ingram out. Darren Sproles likely will handle his role as runner and receiver in the offense. Sproles should be seen as a No. 2 running back for teams this week with Thomas being a No. 3 running back or flex option.

Saints | Mark Ingram not taking advantage of chance

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 18:41:49 -0700

The New Orleans Saints traded RB Chris Ivory (Jets) during the offseason, unjamming what was a crowded backfield. However, RB Mark Ingram (toe) has yet to take advantage through the first two games, running for just 31 yards on 17 carries. In Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ingram struggled early, and the team featured RB Pierre Thomas more.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram might need a change of scenery to realize his potential. He is a back who might need 20-25 carries to get into a groove and get stronger as the game goes on, but that isn't the game plan in New Orleans. For now, he is only worth hanging onto if you need an RB3 or flex player in leagues of 12 or more teams. And at least than two yards per carry, so far, even that might be generous.

Saints | Mark Ingram looking good

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 13:15:01 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has looked very good during practices and could be seen as the player with the best training camp performance so far. He is looking like he did as a rookie when the first defender usually had a hard time bringing him down.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Ingram is the favorite for a majority of the carries in the base offense with his training camp work. Darren Sproles is still the first Saints running back fantasy owners should look to take, but Ingram appears a better choice than Pierre Thomas at this point. Ingram likely will be a solid No. 3 running back entering the season.
