Summary

Prior to the 2014 season, the Saints declined to exercise their fifth-year option on Mark Ingram's rookie contract. Less than a year later, the team signed him to a four-year $16 Million deal. His production improved in 2014 and he rushed for a career high 964 yards, but he again missed time due to injuries. Coming into 2014, Ingram had only one game with 20 or more carries, one game with over 100 yards rushing and only 24 receptions. Last year, he had 5 games with over 20 carries, 4 games with over 100 yards and caught 29 passes. Ingram will continue to be part of the Saints running back by committee, but should be given first opportunity as the team's power back. Ingram ran consistently hard all season and considering the Saints' off-season moves and draft selections, the team may be shifting the offensive philosophy to lean more on the running game. Even with the team signing C. J. Spiller, Ingram should again see several games with plentiful opportunities. (May 8)

Saints | RBs Spiller/Ingram very close in yards? (Sun Jun 21, 08:40 PM) - Mike Triplett, from ESPN.com, believes that running backs C.J. Spiller and Mark Ingram could both be close in yards from scrimmage this year. Ingram would pick up his yards mostly as a runner while Spiller would get his yardage as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

Our View: The more and more we read reports out of New Orleans, the more it becomes clear that Spiller is going to be more than a change-of-pace back for the Saints. If he caught 75 passes this year, we wouldn't be surprised. Spiller's going off the board at RB17 (4.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
