Saints Beat: 'Challenge' for RB Mark Ingram to repeat 2016 numbers

Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

Mark Ingram undoubtedly elevated his game after being briefly demoted during the 2016 season after fumbling issues occurred. He ended the season with a combined 10 touchdowns.

Will Ingram replicate those numbers? It will be a challenge to say the least. And it's not because Ingram will regress, but more about the contenders the Saints brought in this offseason at running back.

Adrian Peterson will compete with Ingram for carries as Peterson replaces Tim Hightower in the backfield.

Related players: Alvin Kamara

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints drafted Kamara to revive the Reggie Bush-Darren Sproles role as a versatile option in the run and pass game. The big question is how much will Peterson cut into Ingram's workload. The story said Peterson is replacing Hightower, but it could be hard for the team to keep a healthy Peterson off the field - which is potential bad news for Ingram's fantasy owners.
