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 well 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 the injuries to Ingram, but Pierre Thomas led the team with 42.4% of the running back carries, while Ingram had only 22.5%, Khiry Robinson 15.6% and Sproles 15.3%. In 2012, the split for Ingram, Thomas, Sproles and Ivory was 44.7%, 30.1%, 13.8% and 11.5%, so Ingram 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. (May 17)

Saints | Mark Ingram will be core player (Thu Jul 24, 07:31 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will be a core player in the Saints' offense this year, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

Our View: Fantasy owners have been burned more than once by Ingram in the past. It will be interesting to see how the Saints backfield shakes out without Darren Sproles. Ingram has flashed some pro ability at times, but he needs to do so more consistently. His current ADP is RB58 (14.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
