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.

Saints | Mark Ingram's season could be over

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 10:45:00 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is dealing with a serious shoulder injury, and there is some fear his season could be over.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Spiller ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Tim Hightower ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) figure to take over, and neither have an extremely high ceiling. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't a great matchup, but for the basement price on FantasyScore, Spiller is a decent flyer.

Saints | Mark Ingram, Marques Colston probable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:56:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) and WR Marques Colston (non-injury) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 4, and are probable in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are a tough matchup for the Saints all-around, making Ingram ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) and Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) tough sells on FantasyScore. The Saints may try to involve the running game more with Willie Snead unlikely to play, but paying up for Ingram doesn't seem wise in this one.

Saints | Two Saints have full practice

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:59:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) and WR Marques Colston (non-injury) were full participants in practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The Carolina Panthers have been accommodating to running backs in the passing game, which favors Ingram ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) this week. He should be viewed as a RB2 on FantasyScore. Colston ($3,000, 6.0%) has been consistently inconsistent throughout 2015, so he should be avoided, unless Willie Snead doesn't play.

Saints | Mark Ingram fully practices

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 16:53:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Carolina Panthers have been fairly stingy against the run this year, but more vulnerable to running backs in the passing game. Ingram ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) isn't a RB1 this week, but he's still worth starting in FantasyScore lineups.
