New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has never had a touchdown reception during the regular season, but he took a screen pass for a 23-yard touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: Ingram has looked like a more decisive runner during the preseason, and the fact that he is being used a little in the passing game is encouraging. The Saints rotate their picks too frequently and throw the ball too much to make Ingram more than a RB4 on draft day, but when you do decide to roll the dice on one of New Orleans' running backs, Ingram looks like he has the most upside at this point.

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson have pulled ahead of RB Pierre Thomas at running back.
Fantasy Tip: As has been the case previously in New Orleans, the running back committee will make all three options frustrating for fantasy football owners. The pecking order could easily change before Week 1, too. All three rushers may be nothing more than flex plays most weeks, and Thomas will definitely be more valuable in PPR affairs.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram will be a core player in the Saints' offense this year, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.
Fantasy Tip: This is the year for Ingram to prove his disappointing career has been a fluke thus far. He'll likely see most of the running work while splitting time with RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas. It's still best to be cautious with him at this point. He's an RB4 at best in standard leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has shown increased focus in offseason practices this year and has been more intense during workouts as he enters his contract year. Ingram knows he must work hard, because RBs Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet wait in the wings. Head coach Sean Payton noted that Ingram did a good job of tuning out some of the criticism last year, when his 4.9 yards per carry led the team in 2013.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is more motivated after the team declined to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. "Like they said, they really like me as a player," Ingram said. "Just the (salary) number was a little high for what a running back gets on the free-agent market."
Fantasy Tip: Ingram came on strong at the tail end of last season, but the problem is Khiry Robinson was even better, and the Saints still have Pierre Thomas in the fold. The Saints may be more ground-based in 2014, but the presence of Robinson, especially, will hurt Ingram's value.
