Saints expect better RB balance going forward

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Saints used running back Alvin Kamara a lot during Mark Ingram‘s four-game suspension to open the season and Kamara performed well as the team won three of those games.

Ingram’s return for last Monday’s game against Washington was expected to cut into Kamara’s usage, but the size of the bite was bigger than many would have predicted. Ingram had 18 touches, which was twice as many as Kamara had in the 43-19 win.

Fantasy Impact:

In a post-bye conference call on Monday morning, head coach Sean Payton said he expected more balance in the future and that the way the Saints scored changed the plans their last time out. Payton said Kamara's lack of touches was a byproduct of 60 and 40 yard passing TDs. Hopefully this will ease the pain of Kamara owners still in shock from Week 5.

Scouting Report

Week 5 vs. Washington Redskins

Mark Ingram will return from his four-game suspension on Monday night when the Saints host the Redskins. Sean Payton noted that he’ll have to figure out the right balance between Ingram and Alvin Kamara but there’s more than enough touches in this offense for both running backs to be fantasy relevant. In fact, we have Ingram ranked as our RB19 for Week 5, so if you stashed Ingram on your bench, feel free to play him as a RB2 this week.
