Quick fantasy outlook: Mark Ingram is listed as the team's starting running back, but the Saints truly employ a running back by committee (RBBC). In 2012, the split for Ingram, Thomas, Sproles and Ivory was 44.7%, 30.1%, 13.8% and 11.5%, and those numbers were more top heavy than in 2011 when the split was 30.7%, 27.36%, 21.9% and 19.8%. Another interesting statistic found when reviewing the Saints' offense over the last three seasons, the Saints have run the ball only 35.6%, 38.9%, and 36.4% of the time. When you run the ball as rarely as a team and combine that with a three way split, it is difficult for any one running back to get into a rhythm. Ingram, the former Heisman Trophy winner was drafted with the 28th pick of the first round in 2011. In two seasons with the Saints, he has 14 games with double digit rushing attempts and in only five of those games has he had over 15 carries. He has averaged 3.9 ypc and rushed for 10 TDs and 1,076 yards. He is frequently removed on third downs and in passing situations and has only 17 receptions in two seasons. He is in the third year of his rookie four year contract and is guaranteed $1.05 Million this year and $1.39 Million in 2014, before becoming a free agent in 2015. It will be telling indeed if Ingram does not see additional opportunities this season since Chris Ivory was traded to the Jets. Ingram seemed to be run stronger in 2012 than his rookie year, but averaged 3.9 ypc each season.
