Week 13: vs Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Mark Ingram went off in a big way against the Rams last weekend, posting 14/146/1 rushing with two targets for 1/21/1 receiving. His sidekick Tim Hightower went over 100 yards combined with 15/51/0 rushing and two targets for 2/54/1 - the two running backs scored three of the seven TDs that New Orleans generated during a 49-21 beat-down of Los Angeles. It was the second time in four weeks that Ingram exceeded 100 yards rushing (significantly - in Week Nine, he had 15/158/1 rushing with 2/13/1 receiving). Hightower has been over 100 yards combined in three of the last four games, and has scored one rushing TD and one receiving TD during that time span. All of a sudden, the Saints have a deadly 1-2 combination of running backs heading into the final month of the NFL season. The Lions' rush defense is ranked 16th in the NFL averaging 102.5 yards allowed per game, but they have only given out five rushing scores this year, tied for second-least in the NFL. From Week Nine to Week 12 of regular season (the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on byes during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Detroit averages 15.4 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (11th-least in the NFL). Minnesota had 16/82/1 rushing at Detroit last week; Jacksonville posted 27/83/0 rushing at Detroit two games ago. This is a tough matchup for the Saints' dynamic duo.
