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.
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.

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.
