Saints | Mark Ingram to report to minicamp

Thu, 24 May 2018 10:40:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is expected to report to the mandatory three-day minicamp in June despite being suspended for the first four games of the regular season, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has plenty of time to stay in shape and stay on fresh on the Saints' playbook. Alvin Kamara will handle the majority of backfield duties until his return and merits top-five PPR consideration at his position. The suspension and the presence of Kamara give Ingram low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 value.

Saints | Alvin Kamara won't be overworked

Sat, 12 May 2018 19:42:26 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara won't be overworked during RB Mark Ingram's suspension, according to head coach Sean Payton. "By all means, we don't want to sit there and run the tread off the back with him early in the season because this thing it's a marathon, 16 games," Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: Considering Kamara has already shown he can be a RB1 while splitting carries with Ingram, it's probably better for his long-term value that the Saints don't run him into the ground. He's a PPR juggernaut and a RB1 in all formats.

Saints | Mark Ingram's appeal denied

Wed, 09 May 2018 09:54:56 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram's appeal of his four-game suspension has been heard and denied by the league, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Ingram will be out the first four weeks. He'll be available to play in Week 5, but their bye is in Week 6. So you're looking at replacing him for five of the first six weeks of the season. Ingram is an RB3, and Alvin Kamara is an elite RB1 in fantasy.

Saints | Mark Ingram appealing

Wed, 09 May 2018 07:56:40 -0700

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is appealing his four-game suspension. David Jones, of VIP Sports Management, says the substance that Ingram failed a drug test is "permissible with the proper use exemption," noting it was neither performance enhancing nor illegal. According to the NFLPA, players can take banned substances as long as they have an application for a therapeutic use exemption filled out by a physician and submitted to an independent administrator. It's unclear, though, if Ingram had the exemption.

Fantasy Tip: This will be a storyline to follow throughout OTAs and training camp. Ingram falls to a high-end RB3 if he misses four games but could return to RB2 status otherwise.

Saints | Mark Ingram suspended

Tue, 08 May 2018 13:11:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

Fantasy Tip: It's bad news for the Saints and Ingram owners, but good news for Alvin Kamara owners. Kamara will now be featured for the first four games of the season, while someone like Boston Scott could be an under the radar DFS play. Ingram, meanwhile, goes from a fringe RB1 to an RB2.

Saints | Mark Ingram totals just 28 yards

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:32:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 10 times for just 25 yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 14, and he added one grab for three yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram went out with a whimper in the team's stunning playoff loss. He had a nice season, but he had to share the load with Alvin Kamara, who quickly emerged as a star in the New Orleans backfield. As such, Ingram's fantasy outlook is a little bit murky going into 2018, as he is likely to split carries at best, and could be a reserve at worst.

Saints | Mark Ingram totals 35 yards in win

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 17:42:58 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed nine times for just 22 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Carolina Panthers while adding one grab for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram had success this season in the run game, but the Panthers were determined to stop both he and Alvin Kamara from having big game. He'll look to get on track against the Minnesota Vikings in another tough matchup in the NFC Divisional Round next weekend.

Saints | Mark Ingram misses out clause

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 18:34:58 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram had a career-high 1,540 yards from scrimmage this season and would have become a free agent had he been named a first-team All-Pro selection. His contract now expires in 2019.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram and teammate Alvin Kamara became a dynamic duo for fantasy owners this season, and both backs will warrant RB1 consideration next year. In the meantime, Ingram should be a strong DFS play against the Carolina Panthers in this weekend's playoff matchup. In two meetings with the Panthers in the regular season, Ingram logged a combined 208 total yards and a score.

Saints | Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara make NFL history

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 21:18:47 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara became the first running back duo in NFL history to each have at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in the same season.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram finished fifth in the NFL in rushing this season with 1,124 yards, while Kamara registered 728 yards on the ground, but on just 120 rush attempts, giving him the highest yards-per-carry mark (6.1) in the league out of all qualified running backs. He also led all players at his position with 826 receiving yards. They should remain upper echelon options in fantasy throughout the postseason.
