Mark Ingram, RB New Orleans Saints

Rankings

Notes: Ingram averaged 19.6 touches for 85 yards and 0.69 TD per game in his 13-game season in 2014. He averaged 4.27 YPC last season after averaging 5.02 YPC in 2013. He benefited somewhat by injuries to Khiry Robinson, who could potentially eat into Ingram's 2015 workload. The team also signed C.J. Spiller to fill the Pierre Thomas/Darren Sproles role in the offense. Ingram posted the #11 PPG in PPR formats (#8 in standard). We’re expecting a step back from those numbers as the team gets Robinson and Spiller involved.

Saints Beat: C.J. Spiller, Mark Ingram 'will be very close in total yards from scrimmage'

Monday, June 22, 2015, 12:35pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Saints beat writer Mike Triplett on the fantasy value of the team's running backs:

It's pretty close between C.J. Spiller and Mark Ingram. I'm really excited to see what Spiller will do in this offense as both a runner and receiver - mostly because you can tell that Sean Payton is really excited about the possibilities when he talks about Spiller. I think Spiller and Ingram will be very close in total yards from scrimmage - right around 1,000 yards each, with Ingram gaining almost all of those yards as a rusher and Spiller having a pretty even split between rushing and receiving yards. Spiller will get a boost in point-per-reception leagues. Ingram will probably score more TDs, though.

Fantasy Impact:

Senior Editor laid out The Case for C.J. Spiller earlier in the offseason. It's not inconceivable that Spiller posts top 5 PPR numbers a la Darren Sproles in 2011. Ingram should get his share of touches, though a healthy Khriy Robinson is a concern. Spiller would be our choice for PPR formats, with Ingram coming in higher in standard leagues.

Scouting Report

Week 17: Ingram vs. Bucs
Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 38 yards with one touchdown and also added three catches for 17 additional yards in the Saints' Week 16 loss to the Falcons. Ingram scored on the first play of the game after Jalen Saunders returned the opening kickoff to Atlanta's 1-yard line. But Ingram was shut down from that point on in what turned into a frustrating game for New Orleans' offense. Ingram should rebound this week against an average Tampa Bay front seven. He's our No. 9 ranked RB for the week. Start him with confidence.
