Saints backfield split raises some concerns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Saints weren't able to rely on the rushing game as much as they might have preferred in Week 12, as their running backs combined for just 16 carries in a Monday night loss to the Ravens.

Mark Ingram, who had averaged 26 carries in the team's previous four games, had just 11 Monday, en route to a disappointing 27-yard showing. More alarmingly, Ingram played just 34 percent of the team's snaps in the loss, as Pierre Thomas' return cut into his playing time drastically. Thomas had just five carries, but hauled in six passes while playing 53 percent of the team's offensive snaps, as they fought their way back from a late deficit.

The Saints were within 10 points of the Ravens for much of the game, until a late touchdown put the Ravens up 14 with three minutes left. However, the Saints were clearly focused on throwing the ball for much of the game, which meant Thomas was the more useful option. That has to be concerning for Ingram's owners, who have gotten used to a healthy dose of carries.

If the Saints are up, they will likely use Ingram plenty, as he is clearly the best pure runner on the team. However, Thomas is going to get work when they want to put the ball in the air, and that might happen often on a team that ranks 25th in scoring defense. Both Thomas and Ingram will have their uses down the stretch, however, and could be low-end starting Fantasy options.


Saints RB Mark Ingram goes nowhere on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram gained 27 yards on 11 carries Monday night against the Ravens, failing on three goal-line opportunities. Ingram caught both his targets for 15 yards but failed to score for a third straight week.

Since producing three consecutive 100-yard rushing games Weeks 8-10, Ingram has mustered 94 yards on 34 carries (2.8 ypc) the past two weeks. He'll try to get back on track Week 13 at Pittsburgh.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints RB Mark Ingram racks up 97 yards of total offense Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram took a step back with a disappointing performance on Sunday against the Bengals in Week 11.

Saints RB Mark Ingram gets the nod for Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints RB Mark Ingram likely to hit free-agent market


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) It appears as though Saints running back Mark Ingram will hit the free-agent market after the 2014 season, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. 

Thus far, there have been no contract talks between Ingram and the Saints, despite Ingram on pace for a career season. The Saints are carrying $160 million in salary cap commitments for 2015 already (most in the NFL), so with the cap projected around $142 million, retaining Ingram will not be easy, according to La Canfora.

Using the franchise tag on Ingram doesn't appear to be an option either, as the price tag (around $8 million) would be virtually impossible given the Saints' existing cash commitments for 2015 and paying running backs that much for a single year is unlikely in this football era, per La Canfora.


Mark Ingram among Saints' notable probables for Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Saints have listed nine players on its final injury report for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Meanwhile, Mark Ingram (shoulder), David Hawthorne (hand) and Zach Strief (chest) were all ruled as probable for Week 11.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Saints have ruled out running backs Pierre Thomas (shoulder, rib), Khiry Robinson (arm) and Edwin Baker (concussion) for Week 11 against the Bengals, per ESPN.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mark Ingram looking like a star


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram continued his career-best stretch in Week 10, putting together yet another huge effort in a 27-24 loss to the 49ers.

Ingram, who had just one 100-yard game in the regular season entering the season, rushed for 120 Sunday, giving him three straight with 100-plus. He was held out of the end zone, but was a bit more involved in the passing game to make up for it somewhat, hauling in three passes for 19 yards in the overtime loss.

Ingram was basically a punch line early in his career, but has emerged as one of the league's best backs this season. He missed three games with a hand injury, but is averaging 91.8 rushing yards per game with six touchdowns in six games. At this point, Ingram should be active in all Fantasy formats, especially with an excellent matchup on the way against the Bengals in Week 11.

Saints RB Mark Ingram will carry the load Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Report: Saints RB Ingram to test free agent market in offseason

Mark Ingram shows his potential


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Getting a chance to carry the load Week 8 against Green Bay with Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) both sidelined by injuries, Saints running back Mark Ingram showed just how valuable he could be with such a role, turning in a career-high 172 yards on a career-high 24 carries. He also scored a touchdown on a 21-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

What was most notable to me about the performance is that Ingram seemed to get better as the game went on. He was short on big gains early, gaining 48 yards on his first 10 carries, before breaking off runs of 28, 18, 14 and, of course, 21 yards.

He was a workhorse type runner at Alabama, earning him the Heisman Trophy in 2009, and may be better suited for that role than the platoon role the Saints have forced upon him. Of course, in his only other game with 20 carries prior to this one, he averaged just 2.5 yards per carry. In fact, prior to Week 8, he had gotten 16 or more carries five times in his career (regular season only) and averaged just 3.3 yards per carry in those games.

The Packers have struggled against the run this year, which may have had as much to do with Ingram's performance as Ingram himself, but certainly if Thomas and/or Robinson are sidelined again, you're going to want to give him the benefit of the doubt.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram humbled the Packers on Sunday Night Football, carrying 24 times for a career-high 172 yards and a touchdown. Ingram averaged 7.2 yards per carry and added a 3-yard catch.

With 3:16 left in the game, Ingram capped the scoring with a 21-yard touchdown around left end. Ingram, who carried the load with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson sidelined, will try to stay hot Thursday at Carolina.

Saints RB Mark Ingram: 'I've got to step up' for my teammates
