Saints expect better RB balance going forward

Monday, October 15, 2018, 1:37pm

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 15 at Carolina Panthers

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Saints’ Week 14 win over the Bucs. Ingram also added one yard on his lone catch and found more running room than teammate Alvin Kamara. His touchdown came from 17 yards out to put the Saints ahead by two touchdowns. Ranked as our RB20 for Week 15, view Ingram as a touchdown-dependent RB2 against the Panthers on Monday night. It’s not a great matchup as Carolina ranks fifth against fantasy running backs this season.
