Sean Payton loves and trusts Mark Ingram, as evidenced by the Saints’ decision to ship Adrian Peterson out of town earlier this month.
However, there is one thing that could block Ingram’s path to redemption. Or, rather, one rookie running back Payton also has developed a love and trust in: Alvin Kamara.
Kamara finished out the game after Ingram fumbled twice in the fourth quarter. But the story said Payton knows he's going to need Ingram if the Saints are going to make a playoff run. However, one more thing the story pointed out was how Ingram's two fumbles in last year's loss to Kansas City opened the door for more work for Tim Hightower over the next few weeks before Ingram eventually re-established himself as the lead man.

Week 11 vs. Washington
Mark Ingram rushed 21 times for 131 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Saints' Week 10 win over the Bills. New Orleans' offensive line mauled Buffalo's front four in this one, creating a great push for Ingram and Alvin Kamara in the running game. Ingram had 43 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive and added a second score on a powerful 3-yard run in the second quarter. He added the cherry on top with a touchdown midway through the third quarter.
The Saints host a Washington team ranked eighth against fantasy running backs this season, so the matchup isn't great. Still, both Kamara and Ingram are locked in as RB1s moving forward. Ranked as our No. 6 RB for Week 11, make sure Ingram starts in all formats this week.
