Ravens get Mark Ingram at $5M per season, which is significantly less than what Le'Veon Bell got ($13.1M). For a team with many needs and less than $30M in cap space, Baltimore wasn't going to make that type of investment at running back.
Clearly bad news for the other Baltimore running backs (namely Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon), this is a great landing spot for Ingram, who will play for a decidedly run-heavy offensive coordinator in Greg Roman. Ingram is still on the right side of 30 and hasn't averaged less than 4.6 YPC in the last four seasons. He's also a very capable receiver (3.1 receptions per game since 2015) so he's able to play on all three downs. He should flirt with fantasy RB1 value this year.
BAL RB Gus Edwards - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Seattle Seahawks
Gus Edwards got six carries last week against the Bengals and gained 34 yards. Aside from the Dolphins game in Week 1, which was an utter blowout, Edwards is averaging 5.4 carries per game as the primary backup behind Mark Ingram. Don’t expect that to change outside of another blowout as long as Ingram is healthy. Edwards should be considered a handcuff only in all leagues.
