ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett isn't worried about Mark Ingram's production through two games.
Ingram has a modest 27 touches, and has yet to find the end zone. Triplett blames Ingram's underwhelming numbers on the Saints' proclivity to abandon the run, something he admits will remain an issue going forward. The biggest concern from a fantasy perspective might be the 10 targets Ingram has ceded to Travaris Cadet in the passing game, though Ingram out-targeted Cadet 4-3 in Week 2. Ingram has a soft Week 3 matchup in the Falcons. He remains in the RB1 conversation. Sep 20 - 1:47 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 30 yards while securing all four of his targets for 17 receiving yards Sunday in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Giants.

The Saints didn’t run much on Sunday and even when they did Ingram and Tim Hightower were both ineffective. Ingram disappeared after halftime, turning three second-half carries into only six yards. With just 27 touches through two games, perhaps we overestimated Ingram at the start of the year. Maybe he’ll find the light next week in a plus matchup against Atlanta.
Sep 18 - 5:30 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 58 yards in New Orleans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders, adding two catches for 29 additional yards.

Ingram should have gotten more work, as the Saints were moving the ball and playing from ahead for almost the entire afternoon. The passing attack was simply too good, creating little incentive to get the run game going. If there's a concern, it's that Ingram got out-targeted 7-2 by Travaris Cadet. Ingram's increased passing game usage was a huge factor in his 2015 success. He'll be an RB1 for next week's road trip against the Giants.
Sep 11 - 5:17 PM

Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 17 yards and missed his lone target in the Saints' third preseason game Friday night.

The stats weren't there, but the Saints' offensive line got bullied in the trenches by Pittsburgh's defensive front. Perhaps most notably, Ingram essentially rotated with C.J. Spiller on the first-team offense. Indications are Spiller could have a bigger role than expected to open the year. Ingram remains the lead back and will gobble up goal-line chances in a high-scoring offense.

Mark Ingram said he wants to retain his role in the passing game.

Ingram entered 2015 with just 53 catches total through four seasons, but he racked up 50 catches in just 12 games last year. "The last couple of years, I’ve had a lot more opportunities to show my abilities all-around," Ingram said. "I just want to be a guy who people look at me and say, ‘he’s one of the top backs in the league hands-down.Somebody that you have to respect and know where he’s at on every snap.'" With the added passing-game element he flashed last year, Ingram proved he has legit RB1 ability when healthy, but he has played in all 16 games just once in his career. Even with those injury concerns and C.J. Spiller a theoretical threat to his targets, Ingram is something of a value in the third round.
Jul 4 - 8:46 AM

Mark Ingram agreed to convert $2.235 million of his $3 million salary into a "signing" bonus, creating $1.49 million of cap space for the Saints.

GM Mickey Loomis has continued his "rob Peter to pay Paul" method in order to fit some free-agent signings on the books, though Ingram isn't losing any money here. He's just getting it up front. Ingram was having a fine 2015 before going down in December with a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder. With Khiry Robinson gone, Ingram is solidified as the Saints' top back.
Mar 30 - 9:26 AM

Mark Ingram (injured reserve) will have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder Thursday.

Ingram originally suffered an AC sprain Week 10 against the Redskins, but he injured the same shoulder further last week against the Panthers and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. He should be fully healthy for the start of OTAs. Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller will form a low-value committee with Ingram sidelined.

Saints placed RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Ingram played through his shoulder issue the last two weeks, but his workloads had been limited. He'll be shut down for the final month, ending his season at 1,174 total yards (4.6 YPC) and six touchdowns over 12 games. The Saints will move forward with a committee of C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower. Ingram should be fully healthy for the start of OTAs.

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports Mark Ingram is "dealing with a serious shoulder injury" that may end his season.

Ingram first popped up on the injury report Week 12 with the shoulder issue, but has been listed as probable the past two weeks. During those games, he's seen his workload scaled back a bit, and we may have a reason now. With Khiry Robinson (leg) already done for the year, would be left with C.J. Spiller, Tim Hightower, and KR-type Marcus Murphy at running back if Ingram has to hit the shelf. It'd be awful timing for fantasy owners. Ingram is currently the overall RB3 and has been as consistent as they come much of the year.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 01:37:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 13 loss to the Panthers, adding four receptions for 23 additional yards.

The Saints couldn't commit to Ingram on the ground in an old-fashioned shootout, but he managed to find the end zone for the first time in five games. There was a low moment when Ingram lost a soft fumble, but the Saints managed to recover. Ingram was also flagged for a personal foul on an over-the-top celebration. With four games to go, Ingram is on pace for 1,025 yards rushing and eight total touchdowns. The 1,000-yard campaign would be his first ever. Ingram will be more RB2 than RB1 against the Bucs in Week 14.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is probable for Week 13.

His status was never in doubt. Ingram is a top-12 play against the Panthers.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 05:48:00 PM

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Ingram played through the issue last week. Ingram has been getting bafflingly few carries the past two weeks, but has kept his floor afloat with receptions. He's on the RB1/2 borderline for Week 13.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 06:03:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 52 yards in New Orleans' Week 12 loss to the Texans, adding six receptions for 45 additional yards.

Ingram averaged nearly six yards per carry for the second straight game, but just like in Week 10, was bafflingly held below 10 totes. It made no sense on a day where Drew Brees found himself stymied from the opening whistle. Ingram is averaging 4.62 yards per carry on the year, but his workloads are making him a dicey RB1. He has a brutal Week 13 matchup in the Panthers. He'll be an RB2 for that one.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 12 against the Texans.

He's been limited at practice but there was never much concern about his status. Ingram has averaged 18.5 touches per game this year. He's an RB1 on volume alone.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 04:19:00 PM

Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice.

There is no known concern about Ingram's Week 12 availability. He should be in store for a heavy workload Sunday against Houston's mediocre run defense.
