Mark Ingram had 21 carries for 52 yards and caught 4-of-5 passes for 42 yards in the Saints' Week 9 loss to the Titans.

Ingram failed to convert on both his goal-line carries and was vultured by Drew Brees on a QB Sneak. His total yards managed to salvage his game, but it's a letdown against one of the worst run defenses in the league. With Khiry Robinson on I.R. and C.J. Spiller not a pass-game factor, Ingram will remain an RB1 for Week 10 against Washington.
Nov 8 - 5:16 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 16 times for 80 yards in New Orleans' Week 8 win over the Giants, adding four catches for 39 additional yards.

Ingram's angry Week 7 running carried over against the G-Men, but he was an afterthought with Drew Brees waging war through the air. Nevertheless, whether it's via yards from scrimmage or touchdowns, Ingram has managed to get the job done in just about every game this season. With half the year in the books, Ingram is on pace for 1,060 rushing yards, another 548 yards through the air and 10 total touchdowns. He's an every-week RB1.
Nov 1 - 6:07 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 143 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 7 win over the Colts, adding two catches for five yards.

It was a strange day for Ingram, who appeared to be semi-benched in the first quarter, and had two scores vultured by Khiry Robinson. He also seemed to tweak something late, but didn't receive any treatment on the sideline. In between, he dominated, notching carries of 20, 11, 44, 35, 17 and 10 yards. The effort upped his YPC from 3.5 to 4.4 Ingram is locked in as an RB1 ahead of next week's game against the Giants.
Oct 25 - 5:02 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 20 times for 46 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' Week 6 win over the Falcons, adding three catches for an additional 10 yards.

Fantasy owners will surely take the two touchdowns, but it was an otherwise abysmal night on the ground for New Orleans' No. 1 runner. Ingram has manufactured just 307 yards on 88 carries this season, giving him a 3.48 YPC. His passing game involvement has helped goose his floor, but Ingram's ceiling is looking mighty limited. He gets the Colts in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 11:52 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 57 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards Week 5 against the Eagles.

Ingram was surprisingly effective against the Eagles' stout front, but he saw just 4 carries as the Saints attempted to comeback in the second half. Khiry Robinson again stole five carries from Ingram, but C.J. Spiller continues to be uninvolved in the offense. Ingram is clearly the No. 1 back in New Orleans, and he will be a solid RB1 against the Falcons on Thursday night.
Oct 11 - 6:16 PM

Mark Ingram had 17 carries for 77 yards and caught 6-of-7 targets for 51 yards in the Saints' Sunday night Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

It could have been a bigger game for Ingram, but he had a touchdown overturned and was vultured by Khiry Robinson on the next play. Ingram continued to dominate early-down work, with Robinson and C.J. Spiller only combining for eight carries. He's on pace for a 184/816/8 line through four weeks. Ingram will be more of a low-end RB2 against the Eagles in Week 5.
Oct 5 - 12:42 AM

Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 50 yards and a touchdown and caught 5-of-5 targets for 49 yards Week 3 against the Panthers.

With the Panthers not afraid of the deep passing game, Ingram struggled to find running room all day. He also continued to lose a concerning amount of carries to Khiry Robinson, who had seven carries and scored on a two-yard rush in the fourth quarter. Ingram has been involved enough in the passing game to maintain RB2 value, but he has been far from impressive through three weeks.
Sep 27 - 6:24 PM

Mark Ingram had 16 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Bucs.

He added three catches for five yards. Ingram was held in check by Gerald McCoy and the Bucs run defense. He lost a fourth-quarter fumble and was outplayed by Khiry Robinson in the second half. Ingram continued to get all red-zone work, with his touchdown coming from 11 yards out. C.J. Spiller was active, but played a limited role. Ingram will be an RB2 against the Panthers in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:49 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 24 yards and caught eight balls for 98 yards in the Saints' Week 1 loss to Arizona.

Ingram shared time near-evenly with Khiry Robinson, who handled 13 touches in the opener. This was without C.J. Spiller (knee) active. Ingram's receiving usage still shouldn't be immediately passed off as a fluke; he showed much better in the passing game this preseason, and wound up with a team-high nine targets against Arizona. It's good news for Ingram's PPR value, and there will be higher-scoring rushing games ahead. Ingram will be a borderline RB1 when the Saints face the Buccaneers in Week 2.
Sep 13 - 7:42 PM

Mark Ingram rushed four times for 13 yards and caught a 12-yard pass in the Saints' third preseason game.

Ingram was sharp on early outside-zone runs and caught a nifty screen pass on the Saints' opening drive, picking up a dozen. Ingram's increased role in the passing game has come to fruition this August, catching four balls for 57 yards over the last two exhibition games. Ingram is a low-end RB1 pick who could benefit in PPR if C.J. Spiller (knee) misses regular season time.
Aug 30 - 5:25 PM

Mark Ingram wants to be used more in the passing game.

"I know I'm a three-down back," said Ingram. "I take pride in being an every-down back, being a back that doesn't have to come off the field, being a back that can do everything that's asked of him within the scheme of the offense." Ingram has reportedly been "featured" in the passing game during practice and had three receptions in the second preseason game. C.J. Spiller will be the primary receiver out of the backfield when healthy, but Ingram has a decent shot to top 30 receptions for the first time in his career.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett said RB Mark Ingram has been "featured" in the passing game once or twice a practice.

With C.J. Spiller out, the Saints are giving Ingram a larger role in the passing offense. That will likely change once Spiller returns, but it is an important nugget to keep in mind if Spiller is forced to miss any time this year. Ingram had 36 of the 156 targets Saints' running backs saw last season.
Aug 20 - 12:50 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller to end up "very close" in 2015 yards from scrimmage.

Another Saints reporter previously suggested Spiller could even end up with more touches than Ingram. Triplett is confident Ingram will lead the Saints in touches -- primarily because he'll get so many more carries -- but it's clear New Orleans is planning on a split backfield. Ingram is still a good bet for 14-plus carries per game, and he'll gobble up all available goal-line work.
Jun 21 - 4:09 PM

Mark Ingram (foot/ankle) has resumed practicing.

The Saints held Ingram out for parts of the last two weeks, but it was never a concern. Ingram is a borderline RB1 in the Saints' new run-balanced offense.
