Saints RB Mark Ingram Scores First Touchdown

Associated Press - [Full Article]

New Orleans running back Mark Ingram had a spinning, tackle-breaking touchdown run in his NFL debut, and New Orleans beat San Francisco 24-3.

Ingram’s 14-yard scoring run highlighted a performance in which the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner out of Alabama carried six times for 23 yards. Saints undrafted rookie Joseph Morgan, a little known prospect out of Walsh University, added a spectacular 78-yard punt return for a score.

David Akers hit a 59-yard field goal for San Francisco, a kick set up by rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s 28-yard scramble late in the first half.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ingram has the potential to be a great value pick. His ADP could continue to rise as we get closer to draft day. Right now, he's going in the fifth and sixth rounds in a lot of leagues and should outperform his current draft position.
