Saints | Mark Ingram will be the bellcow

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 19:51:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is expected to shoulder most of the load in the backfield with all of his underlings struggling in one facet of the game or another. He is capable of playing three downs, is capable of doing big things catching the ball out of the backfield and he is the best of the group in pass protection, too.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is a bona fide RB1 and fantasy owners will like him because he isn't in a timeshare and will see a bulk of the carries in NOLA as long as he can stay healthy. Those timeshare situations can make fantasy owners pull out their hair. This isn't one of those situations.

Saints | Tim Hightower the backup?

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 17:13:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is the best bet to serve as the primary backup for RB Mark Ingram, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: Given Ingram's injury issues, Hightower could easily end up starting a few games. Grab him in the later rounds, especially if you are an Ingram owner.

Saints | Mark Ingram wants to show versatility

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:29:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said his goal this year is to remain a factor in the passing game and force opposing defenses to account for him on every snap.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram had 50 catches last year before an injury ended his season early. The injury concerns aren't going away, but Ingram has RB2 potential and should be available in the middle rounds.

Saints | Mark Ingram the go-to back when healthy

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 20:38:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram was on the field for 62.6% of the offensive snaps, the highest percentage of any running back on the roster, in the games he played in last year.

Fantasy Tip: If not for a late injury, Ingram's 2015 season would have been considered a breakout campaign. He logged 1,174 total yards and 50 catches through 12 games, proving he is a much more complete back than he is given credit for. He has RB2 potential, and he will likely be available at a RB3 price.

Saints | New Orleans backfield taking shape

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:45:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is the lead running back for the Saints, while RB Tim Hightower appears to be the backup, according to Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. RB C.J. Spiller holds the No. 3 spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower proved his worth later on last season in New Orleans when Ingram was sidelined. Ingram is still an RB1 when healthy, though. Spiller is a mid-round option in PPR leagues, while Hightower is a late-round handcuff consideration for Ingram in standard formats.

Saints | Mark Ingram restructures

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 09:28:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram converted some of his base salary into a signing bonus Wednesday, March 30. The restructure didn't include a pay cut or any new money. The Saints created $1.49 million in cap space for 2016 by converting $2.235 million of Ingram's $3 million salary into a signing bonus. They still will have to account for that $1.49 million in the future, but now it will be spread out evenly over the life of Ingram's contract through 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has been a bit of a disappointment, but he still figures to be busy in the Saints' backfield. He's a high-end RB3 in fantasy.

Saints | Tim Hightower to be No. 1 back

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:02:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to receive the bulk of the carries for the team going forward, with RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, because of their similar running styles. RB C.J. Spiller's role appears unlikely to change.

Fantasy Tip: The 29-year-old Hightower ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was signed by the Saints last month and hadn't played in the NFL since 2011 prior to that. He has 12 carries for 48 yards and could be a solid pickup as a flex player for deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch.

Saints | Mark Ingram requires surgery

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 06:40:27 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) will have surgery on his left shoulder to repair a torn rotator cuff Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller will take over for Ingram. Hightower is creating some buzz as possibly taking the early down work with Spiller in on passing downs. At $2,000 (4.0% of cap) each, Hightower is a cheap flyer on FantasyScore against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Saints | Mark Ingram placed on IR

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 14:06:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 9, according to a source. He is out for the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Again, C.J. Spiller ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Tim Hightower ($2,000, 4.0%) are both worth picking up if they're available in your league(s). Hightower has more promise, especially in standard leagues, as he better fits Ingram's mold. Spiller should continue his erratic pass-catching duties.

Saints | More touches for C.J. Spiller, Tim Hightower?

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:35:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower could be in line for more snaps if RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is out for the season. Spiller is averaging just 13.5 snaps and 5.5 touches per game with the Saints this year for 108 rushing yards, 216 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Spiller has just four touches in the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has become a fantasy afterthought with the Saints this year after being a popular sleeper pick in the preseason. He would still be worth adding if he's available, but Tim Hightower ($2,000) better fits the role Ingram would leave behind, especially in standard scoring leagues.
