Mark Ingram is the leading runner, with a good chance at 1,000 yards, while C.J. Spiller could catch 60-plus passes for the first time in his career and gain more than 1,000 combined rushing and receiving yards.
Khiry Robinson's touches will likely be limited. But as he proved last season when Ingram suffered a hand injury, he's more than capable of stepping up when needed.
Our projections for the Saints backs are pretty much right on par with what writer Mike Triplett believes. We have Ingram just under 1,000 yards and Spiller among the leaders in receptions and collecting a total of just under 1,000 yards rushing and receiving. Spiller, of course, will have his value in PPR leagues with a Darren Sproles-like role it appears. Ingram should get the early down work and proved to be able to carry the load last season.
