Week 3 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Mark Ingram had 55 yards and a touchdown on the ground, along with 22 yards on a pair of receptions against the Texans last week in a blowout victory. However, he only had nine of the 12 carries that went to Baltimore running backs and was only in on 42% of the team’s offensive snaps. Part of that can be attributed to the score, as the bulk of Gus Edwards’ 10 carries came in the second half and much of it in the fourth quarter. This happened a lot last year too. The Ravens would get up early, and then it was Gus Edwards time.
This week, Ingram should see a few more snaps against the Chiefs, who are unlikely to fall so far behind like the Texans last week and the Browns in Week 1. Last year, he had 16 carries, 103 yards and three touchdowns against the Chiefs, along with four receptions and 32 yards. While it’s unlikely he’ll repeat that level of performance, he’s a sneaky RB2 option this week. Expect a fun matchup.
