Summary

Mark Ingram has completed three seasons with the Saints and improved somewhat in 2013 to average over 4.0 ypc for the first time in his career. However, he missed 5 games and only managed 78 rushes on the season. For his 3-years with the team, he has only 356 carries for 1,462 yards and 11 rushing TDs. Ingram did seem to run consistently harder and was slightly more effective last year, particularly down the stretch as he averaged 11 rushes and 62 yards per game the final four games, including the playoffs. The Saints recently declined to exercise their fifth-year option on Ingram, frankly because even if he plays better in 2014, he will not be worth the $5.2 Million that picking up the option would have cost. The Saints will continue to employ a running back by committee (RBBC) this season. The splits were impacted some in 2013 because of Ingram's injuries, but Pierre Thomas led the team with 42% of the running back carries, while Ingram had only 23%, Khiry Robinson 16% and Sproles 15%. In 2012, the split for Ingram, Thomas, Sproles and Ivory was 45%, 30%, 14% and 12%, so Ingram's opportuities fell back considerably last year. Ingram enters the final year of his rookie contract and will be paid $1.39 Million, before becoming a free agent in 2015. He has only 24 career receptions, so his primary usage will continue to be as a rusher in the team's RBBC. (August 9)

Latest News

Saints | Mark Ingram's role evolving (Tue Aug 19, 10:50 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has never had a touchdown reception during the regular season, but he took a screen pass for a 23-yard touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 15.

Our View: Don't assume Ingram is going to become a high volume receiving back. One or two catches a game could make him a less dicey flex play, but he will still be in a three-headed backfield.

Saints | Pierre Thomas third in pecking order (Mon Aug 11, 08:30 AM) - New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson have pulled ahead of RB Pierre Thomas at running back.

Our View: An interesting note for fantasy owners here. Ingram has failed to play up to his potential since the team selected him in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft. He's got some power and speed, but he has yet to put it all together. Robinson came out of West Texas A&M as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He's big, swift and determined when running the football. Right now, fantasy owners are drafting Thomas first (RB26, 5.12), Robinson second (RB44, 10.06) and Ingram third (RB49, 12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.
