Mark Ingram managed just 25 yards on 10 carries while catching his only target for a three-yard gain Sunday in the Saints’ Divisional Round loss to the Vikings.
Ingram never got anything going on Sunday, which was probably to be expected against Minnesota's top-tier run defense. It didn't help that New Orleans spent most of the day playing from behind and essentially abandoned the running game altogether after halftime. Ingram limped to the finish line, ending the year on a three-game touchdown drought while struggling to just 2.56 yards per carry during that span. It's not the finish Ingram was hoping for, but this was still by far his best season as the 28-year-old set career-highs in both rushing yards (1,124) and touchdowns (12). Even with Alvin Kamara playing a major role, Ingram should be in the RB1 conversation in 2018. Jan 14 - 9:45 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 22 yards and turned his only target into 13 yards in the Saints' Wild Card win over the Panthers.

Expected to ride the running game by everyone, the Saints dialed back the clock with a dominant performance from Drew Brees. Unfortunately for people who were counting on Ingram in DFS, that game-plan left him with few opportunities. He could not do much with the ones he did get, and he was vultured on the one-yard line by Zach Line late in the second quarter before watching Alvin Kamara score a short one in the fourth. With the Vikings up next, the road will not get any easier.

Mark Ingram's contract will not be voided after failing to make the All-Pro team.

Ingram had a clause in his contract that would have voided the final year of his deal had he made the All-Pro team. Instead his teammate, Alvin Kamara, nabbed the final All-Pro spot at running back. Ingram will earn $4 million next season before hitting the open market in 2019. Despite the All-Pro snub, the seventh-year still finished with career-highs in both rushing yards (1,124) and touchdowns (12) during the regular season and will be a strong DFS play against Carolina this weekend.
Jan 5 - 3:35 PM

Mark Ingram managed 35 yards on 13 carries and caught 4-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Saints' Week 17 loss to the Bucs.

The Saints managed just 3.5 yards per carry as a team against a Bucs defense that came to play after it was announced coach Dirk Koetter would return for the 2018 season. Ingram's Week 18 matchup will be one of the toughest on the slate against a stout Panthers run defense in the Wild Card Round.

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 16 win over the Falcons.

He added 22 yards on three catches. It was a quiet first half for Ingram, who finished with just 17 yards rushing on seven carries. He broke out after the break, however, getting loose for a 26-yard rushing score late in the third quarter to give the Saints a 17-point lead. He did not do much after that, but the run saved what could have been a bad fantasy day. Ingram will finish the regular season with a good matchup against the Bucs.

Mark Ingram caught 5-of-6 targets for 77 yards and rushed 12 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Ingram started his day with a 54-yard gain on a screen pass – it probably should have been a 64-yard touchdown – and already had 80 yards on four catches and a short rushing touchdown by the end of the first quarter. The offense surprisingly struggled for most of the rest of the game, but Ingram was able to get loose for a 50-yard touchdown with less than two minutes left to ice the win. Ingram topped both 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing scores for the season in this game. He will remain a must-start option next week against the Falcons.

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 49 yards in the Saints' Week 14 loss to the Falcons, adding four catches for 43 additional yards.

Although Ingram was gutting out a toe injury, it's fair to say he had a disappointing night after Alvin Kamara departed on the opening drive with a concussion. Ingram didn't appear to be noticeably hobbled, though he was in a good deal of pain after banging his foot on the turf late in the fourth quarter. He remained down for a few moments, but quickly checked back in. He's a man who could use the 10 days rest between now and next week's game with the Jets. Regardless of Kamara's health for that one, Ingram will remain a top-12 option.

Mark Ingram (toe) is active for Week 14 against the Falcons.

It appears Ingram's missed practice time was mostly about maintenance on a short week. Alvin Kamara is the preferred RB1, but Ingram should be treated as a top-eight option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Inactive for the Saints are G/T Andrus Peat, S Rafael Bush, RB Jonathan Williams, TE Garrett Griffin, C Cameron Tom, WR Austin Carr and DE Al-Quadin Muhammad as inactive.

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports Mark Ingram's toe injury is "not a big issue," and he will be "good to go" against the Falcons on Thursday.

Quoting coach Sean Payton, Russini said Ingram's missed practices were mostly a function of it being a short week for the Saints. It appears Ingram will not only play, but be ready for his usual role. Alvin Kamara is the preferred RB1, but Ingram is firmly in the top eight for Week 14.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Mark Ingram (toe, questionable) is expected to play Thursday night against the Falcons.

Ingram gave us a scare when he sat out both Tuesday and Wednesday, but it looks like the Saints were just being careful. Perhaps the injury means we see a bit more Alvin Kamara and a bit less Ingram against the Falcons, but both remain high-end options.

Mark Ingram (toe) is questionable for Week 14 against the Falcons.

Ingram was again listed as DNP on Wednesday, putting him in actual question for Thursday night in Atlanta. He's looking like a potential game-time decision. If Ingram sits, Alvin Kamara will be an even more elite RB1 play.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 03:43:00 PM

Mark Ingram (toe) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

It's a downgrade after Ingram was limited on Monday. It's quite possible the Saints are just managing Ingram's reps on a short week, but his Week 14 status cannot be taken for granted. Were Ingram to sit for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Alvin Kamara would be the RB1 overall for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Mark Ingram (toe) was listed as limited on Monday's practice report.

The Saints didn't actually practice on Monday, as this is just an estimation since the Saints and Falcons were forced to issue a report ahead of their Thursday night matchup. We don't imagine it's anything to worry about right now, but in the event Ingram ever missed a game, Alvin Kamara would be in the overall RB1 conversation. For now, both are top 12 or 15 fantasy backs.

Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 13 win over the Panthers.

It was a bounce-back effort for Ingram after his down Week 12, though 72 of his yards came on one run. Ingram took a second quarter handoff, galloped through an enormous hole, found the sideline and eventually cut it back. He very nearly scored an 84-yard touchdown. He was untouched on a three-yard score two plays later. Otherwise, Ingram was quiet as Alvin Kamara put on another tackle-breaking clinic. Kamara has moved past Ingram as the preferred RB1, but Ingram will remain in the top 12 for next week's showdown with the Falcons.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 07:32:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 11 times for 31 yards in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Rams, adding two receptions for five yards.

Ingram's first bad game since Adrian Peterson's trade was his worst of the season. Today was the first time since Week 2 he was held below 40 yards on the ground, and first time all year he did not reach 40 yards from scrimmage. Aside from Alvin Kamara, Saints weren't making plays to extend drives. Kamara generated a bonkers 188 yards on just 11 touches. Despite the monster game from the electrifying Kamara, there's zero reason to doubt Ingram's RB1 bonafides going forward, even for a tough Week 13 matchup with the Panthers.
