From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 18): Ingram posted two scores as a receiver to bolster his fantasy profile heading into a matchup against the Rams.
Week 12: at Los Angeles Rams - $6300
FBG says: Tough matchup. Baltimore's rushing attack, thanks to unique and remarkably-talented personnel throughout their offense, along with an innovative offensive mind calling the plays, is the NFL's highest-volume and highest-efficiency ground game in 2019. MVP frontrunner Lamar Jackson is one of the best rushing threats at the quarterback position that the league has ever seen. Jackson recorded at least 60 rushing yards in 7 straight games, and 8 out of his last 10 games this season. Then, at running back, Mark Ingram leads the way with about 13 carries per game this season. Ingram only plays about 50-percent of the team's offensive snaps each week, but he contributes over 65 rushing yards per game. This duo, coupled with offensive coordinator Greg Roman's innovative rushing attack, has led the way for Baltimore's offense that ranks atop the league in points per game, rushing yards per game, rushing touchdowns per game, and rushing yards per carry. Lastly, the Ravens' offensive line is arguably the league's best, and the same 5-man unit has played together for almost 95-percent of the team's offensive snaps this season. The Los Angeles Rams' run defense is one of the strongest in the NFL this season, defending the 10th-most rushing attempts per game while allowing only 3.3 yards per carry, the 2nd-best mark in the league. Allowing five rushing touchdowns over their first four games has hurt their full-season fantasy points allowed numbers, where they rank 10th in the league (using PPR scoring formats.) However, the supreme talent throughout this defense is representative of a top-flight run defense, rather than merely a strong run defense. The Rams have held 5 straight starting running backs to less-than 67 rushing yards and 0 touchdowns. Their impressive run defense starts in the trenches, where Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers both grade as elite run-stopping interior linemen. Then, at linebacker, Cory Littleton is an improved run defender this season. Littleton leads the team with 47 total tackles while missing only 1 tackle through 10 games this season. Lastly, in the secondary, Eric Weddle and Jalen Ramsey are significant contributors to the Rams' run-stopping efforts this season. Both players have a nose for the football and are very willing to come down towards the line of scrimmage to help bolster one of the league's best run defenses. Week 12 will be a classic matchup of strength against strength, as the Rams' supremely-talented run defense faces off with the Ravens' top-ranked rushing attack led by quarterback Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 11 vs HOU (13 / 48 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 37 / 2 rec - 23.5 points, $6600)
Mark Ingram played very well and did much of his damage in the passing game. The Ravens continue to scheme Ingram targets. Ingram has proven to be match up problem against linebackers and the Ravens are using him in different ways to attack defenses. Ingram was targeted downfield after releasing up the seam on a 3rd down but Ingram was well covered on the play and the pass fell incomplete. Ingram picked up 11 yards on an inside carry running behind Bradley Bozeman. Ingram made a catch in the flat and went practically uncontested for a 25 yard receiving touchdown. Mark Andrews set a pick for Ingram on the play leaving him all alone along the sideline. Ingram picked up 9 yards running off right tackle thanks to a great block by Patrick Ricard on the edge. Ingram made a catch in the flat with a defender closing him down and ducked under the defender in a single legged squat to escape for a 12 yard touchdown. It was one of Ingram's best plays of the season as the defender had him dead to rights.
2019 Week 10 vs CIN (9 / 34 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 9.4 points, $7100)
The Ravens opened the game with a heavy dose of Ingram but the flow of the game resulted in Ingram not getting much work throughout the game. The Ravens passing attack was so effective it did not allow for long methodical drives where Ingram could accumulate yards and carries. The Bengals also conceded two defensive scores limiting the Ravens time of possession. The Ravens took what the defense gave them against the Bengals and expect more of the same going forward. Ingram looked like he was going to be stopped for no gain on a run up the middle but fought through two arm tackles to pick up 7 yards. Ingram got consecutive carries from the 1 yard line and scored 1 yard touchdown on the second.
2019 Week 9 vs NE (15 / 115 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec - 18.4 points, $5900)
Mark Ingram was playing very well until he lost a fumble. Ingram found much of his success early in the game finding running lanes and exploiting them for big gains. Ingram made two nice plays in the passing game and would've had a 3rd but Jackson rushed the throw. Ingram got a pitch from Jackson on an option play and broke contain for a 13 yard gain. Ingram followed a nice block from Matt Skura and burst into the second level for 14 yards. Ingram ran through a huge lane created by Marshal Yanda and went almost untouched for 53 yards. Ingram sprinted through the hole nearly at full speed. Ingram was wrapped up and stripped as he went to the ground on his next carry. Ingram made a pair of catches in the flat and totaled 29 yards on his two catches. Ingram was able to out flank a linebacker in coverage on each play then escape down the sideline.
2019 Week 7 vs SEA (12 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec - 6.3 points, $6600)
Mark Ingram struggled to find room to run against the Seahawks. Ingram had his moments but has not found the same running lanes inside that he found earlier in the season. Teams seem intent on taking away the big plays from Ingram and forcing Jackson to beat them on the edge or with his arm. Ingram is still running hard and playing well. Ingram looks quick and is still fighting through contact but he is not being allowed to build a head of steam as he used to. Despite this Ingram still averaged nearly 4 yards per carry and should be a key part of the Ravens offense going forward especially in goal line or short yardage situations.
2019 Week 6 vs CIN (13 / 52 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec - 15.4 points, $6600)
Mark Ingram has struggled to find room to run the last few weeks. Teams seem intent on not letting Ingram run inside and seem to want to make Jackson beat them with his legs or arm. As a result the Jackson and the Ravens have found more success running on the edges than inside where Ingram has done most of his damage. The consistent 7 or 8 yard gains that were there for Ingram haven't been there in recent weeks. However, Ingram remains the Ravens lead back and has seen more involvement in the passing game recently. Ingram also is still in charge of goal line duties. Ingram caught a screen pass and made a nice move to pick up 11 yards. Ingram ran off right guard for a 1 yard touchdown. On 3rd and short Ingram ran a shallow crossing route and picked up 11 yards. Ingram best run of the game was a toss where he followed Willie Snead and Marshal Yanda around the edge for a 12 yard gain.
2019 Week 5 vs PIT (19 / 44 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec - 12.9 points, $6300)
Mark Ingram struggled to find room to run against the Steelers. Ingram was not able to get to the second level with a head of steam as he had in previous games. Ingram was frequently met at or behind the line of scrimmage and was forced to run through contact instead of running lanes. Ingram was used more often as a check down option for Jackson than in previous weeks. Ingram securing more targets only boosts his fantasy value especially if he is struggling to find running room. Ingram followed a nice block from a pulling Bradley Bozeman and found 14 yards on his first carry. Ingram followed a surge from the left side of Baltimore's offensive line and fought though contact to score a 4 yard rushing touchdown. Mark Ingram had a 17 yard reception negated by an offensive pass interference penalty.
2019 Week 4 vs CLE (12 / 71 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec - 9.1 points, $6600)
Mark Ingram played very well outside of a costly fumble with the Ravens in scoring position. Ingram found holes and picked up good yardage on his carries running hard through contact. Ingram was able to consistently rip off gains of 8 and 9 yards running behind the interior of the Ravens' offensive line. Ingram followed a pulling Bradley Bozeman into the second level and literally just ran behind him for an 18 yard gain. After a couple of nice runs Ingram and the Ravens moved into scoring position Mark Ingram fumbled and the Browns recovered. The fumble killed the Ravens momentum and was the Ravens first turnover of the season. Ingram successfully converted a 2 point attempt with a run off right guard.
2019 Week 3 vs KC (16 / 103 / 3 rush, 4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec - 38.5 points, $5700)
Mark Ingram continues to look great running and catching the ball. Ingram gets downhill in a hurry and once he has a head of steam its very hard for one defender to bring him down. Ingram consistently made defenders miss and saw usage in the pass game. Ingram got around the edge running right and followed two great blocks from wide receivers on his first carry gaining 21 yards. Ingram went untouched through a massive hole for a 2 yard touchdown on the Ravens opening possession. Ingram went untouched into the second level following great blocks from Orlando Brown Jr. and Willie Snead on his way to a 19 yard touchdown run. Ingram got downhill in a hurry and chewed up yards once he got going. Ingram was wrapped up by two Chiefs defenders short of the line to gain but managed to fight out of two tackles for a 6 yard gain on 3rd and 5. Ingram scored his 3rd touchdown up the middle on a 1 yard carry. Ingram caught a shovel pass for 10 yards on an improvised play. A few plays later Ingram picked up 13 yards with hard running after catching a check down. Expect the Ravens to lean heavily on Ingram if Jackson is struggling throwing the ball.
2019 Week 2 vs ARI (13 / 47 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec - 9.7 points, $6000)
Mark Ingram found limited success running the ball. The Cardinals defensive ends consistently collapsed in in an effort to slow the Ravens rushing attack. This created avenues for Lamar Jackson to run but resulted in a modest day statistically for Ingram. Ingram gained the edge off right tackle and followed Hayden Hurst into the second level on a 16 yard gain. Ingram made a 20 yard catch up the sideline lined up at wide receiver but absorbed a hard hit to the back from DJ Swearinger forcing him out of the game for the remainder of the series. Ingram picked up 10 yards on a dump off out of the backfield. Ingram played well, ran hard, and made plays in the passing game. Ingram was also the back in the game when the Ravens were in the red zone so expect him to continue to lead the Baltimore backfield barring an injury. Ingram sealed the game for the Ravens with back to back carries of 11 yards and 1 yard fighting through heavy contact on each.
2019 Week 1 vs MIA (14 / 107 / 2 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 25.7 points, $5100)
Mark Ingram followed a beautiful block from Patrick Ricard and ran over a defender at the second level to break into the open field and pick up 49 yards on his first carry. Ingram got two carries inside the Dolphins' 6 yard line and scored a 1 yard touchdown. Ingram ran hard each time he got the ball. The collisions he created with defenders were very loud and violent. Ingram scored his second touchdown of the game off left tackle and went untouched for the 2 yard score. Ingram was able to gain chunks of 8 or 9 yards consistently throughout the game and was never stopped for a loss of yardage.
