Mark Ingram still Saints top RB

Tuesday, September 20, 2016, 1:00pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Mark Ingram’s role is intact as the Saints’ leading runner and every-down back. Nothing has changed in that department. And he has looked fine when he’s touched the ball (21 carries for 88 yards, six catches for 46 yards, zero touchdowns).

The more valid concern is that the Saints have always been quick to abandon the run. And that has definitely been the case so far this year, even in two close games.

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints’ 35 rushing attempts rank 31st in the NFL. They only ran the ball three times in the second half of their 16-13 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. HC Sean Payton said in the story that they would like more balance than that, despite being a pass-first team. So, owners can at least hold out hope there are better days ahead for Ingram.

Scouting Report

Week 4 at San Diego
Mark Ingram rushed 15 times for 77 yards, while also catching four-of-six targets for an additional 30 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' loss to the Falcons. It wasn't a bad night for Ingram considering New Orleans had to throw the ball a lot in the second half to keep pace with Matt Ryan and Co. Ingram picked up yards in chunks on several draw plays that Atlanta had no desire to stop and fantasy owners had to be pleased that he finished with just as much targets (6) as fellow back Travaris Cadet.

The Saints travel to San Diego this Sunday to take on the Chargers, who own fantasy's No. 30-ranked defense versus running backs. Ingram ranks as our RB10 for Week 4. View him as a low-end RB1.
