Fantasy Tip: Ingram was limited last week, too, but that didn't keep him from playing. He and Tim Hightower figure to continue to split playing time out of the backfield. Their matchup is tough this week, though, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have only yielded one rushing touchdown to the position over their last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will be a key name to keep an eye on in the coming days. If he misses practice again over the next day or two then there will be good cause for worry. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead turn into a WR1 and WR3, respectively, if Thomas is inactive, while Coby Fleener is a sleeper start either way.

Fantasy Tip: Since Hill was beginning to emerge as the starter in recent weeks, it is fair to assume Coby Fleener will likely see regular snap counts for the remainder of the season. Considering the factors causing Fleener's struggles this season are more internal than external, there's no guarantee more playing time will help him because a more consistent fantasy asset. He can be left on the bench for the fantasy playoffs.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw 31-of-44 for 326 yards but was intercepted three times in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was the first time in 60 home games for the Saints that Brees did not throw a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Brees is just like any other quarterback in the NFL, due for a lackluster game now and then. This may have been the game. His overall stats were good (three-fourths of his passes completed), but the interceptions hurt. Brees is still a strong QB1 due to his yardage and touchdown numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram is coming off of a Week 12 performance where he accumulated 146 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards and two combined touchdowns versus the Los Angeles Rams. Although he is slated to split carries with Tim Hightower this week, he should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Dec. 2, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to split playing time with Tim Hightower this afternoon but is still worthy of consideration as a high-upside RB2.

New Orleans Saints RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) and OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and have been ruled out for Week 13. C Senio Kelemete (hip), TE John Phillips (ankle) and OT Zach Strief (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He likely will share snaps with Tim Hightower if he plays in the game but can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It bodes well for the possibility he will suit up Week 13 against the Detroit Lions, although Tim Hightower is a good bet to receive more touches given the nature of Ingram's injury. Ingram is a high-upside RB2 in what has quickly become a very good rushing attack, while Hightower is more a lower-end RB2 option.

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) and RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1. OG Senio Kelemete (hip), TE John Phillips (ankle) and OT Zach Strief (knee) were limited.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's availability is starting to get worrisome. If he's able to practice tomorrow it would be a sigh of relief, but be prepared to fire up Tim Hightower incase Ingram can't take the field.

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) and RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30. OG Senio Kelemete (hip), TE John Phillips (ankle) and OT Zach Strief (knee) were limited.
