Summary

Prior to the 2014 season, the Saints declined to exercise their fifth-year option on 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 career 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. His activity in the passing game remains rather low. (August 19)

Saints | Mark Ingram being featured (Thu Aug 20, 11:31 AM) - New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been featured as a receiver out of the backfield in practice Thursday, Aug. 20.

Our View: This makes sense with CJ Spiller out. If you believe Spiller is going to have trouble staying on the field again this year, Ingram might end up being worth your second round pick, and certainly worth your third. While Ingram has had some durability issues of his own, he could end up being a true feature back this year.
