Report: Saints' Mark Ingram could earn '18 to 22' touches Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) In an interview on CBS Sports Radio Saturday, Saints sideline reporter Kristian Garic indicated that injuries to running backs Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson could potentially mean "18 to 22" touches for Mark Ingram Sunday night against the Packers, per CBS Senior Fantasy Writer Dave Richard.

The Packers rank 31st against the run, allowing 147.9 yards per game on the ground this season. Ingram has rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns on 34 carries, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt.


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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Saints lead back Mark Ingram wants to return the favor to the backfield mates that carried the load when he missed three games with a broken hand by performing well with them out.

Ingram has been thrust back into the featured back role for Sunday night against Green Bay with injuries sidelining Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson.

"A couple guys are down, so I've got to step up and pull my weight and do my job," Ingram told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Ingram certainly pulled his weight before his injury. He rushed for 143 yards on 6.0 YPC with three touchdowns in the first two games. But he managed just 16 yards on 10 attempts at Detroit in Week 7.


Saints rule out backs Thomas, Robinson against Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Running backs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) have been ruled out by the Saints for the Sunday game against Green Bay.

Their absences should mean increased work for Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet.


Saints backfield picture no clearer following Mark Ingram's return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) With the return of Mark Ingram, we got our first glimpse of how the Saints running backs might be used in Week 7 against the Lions. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to take from the game, thank to the stifling defense played by the Lions.

Ingram and Pierre Thomas received the most work, but neither was particularly effective in the game. Ingram ran the ball 10 times for 16 yards, while Thomas had just 13 yards on six carries -- lead-footed quarterback Drew Brees also had 13 yards, on just one carry. The team was actually led by Khiry Robinson, who racked up 26 yards on three carries.

Thomas was a bit more active in the passing game, hauling in four passes for 17 yards. However, Travaris Cadet was still the top receiver out of the backfield with six receptions for 51 yards, which is bad news for Thomas. Ingram and Robinson might be the top rushing options on the roster, so Thomas needs to make his name as a receiving option if he is going to be Fantasy relevant.

At this point, the Saints have four options out of the backfield, all of whom can be dynamic playmakers when given the chance. Things should be easier moving forward, as the Lions' rushing defense is arguably the league's toughest. However, with so many mouths to feed, it might be tough for Fantasy owners to rely on anyone here until their roles get a bit clearer. 


Mark Ingram can't get untracked in return


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram returned from his broken hand Week 7 but was ineffective against the Lions. He rushed 10 times for 16 yards (1.6 ypc) and caught two of three targets for 13 yards.

Ingram plays the Packers in Week 8.


Mark Ingram ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram is active as expected for Sunday's game at Detroit after being listed as probable. He missed the last three games with a broken hand, then benefitted from the team's Week 6 bye.

Saints RB Mark Ingram officially deemed probable for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, who missed the previous three games with a broken hand, was a full participant in practice on Friday and has been officially deemed probable for Week 7 at Detroit, per the team's official website.

Ingram ran for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the first two games before getting hurt. His role on offense remains uncertain for Sunday.


Saints' running back situation a bit dodgy now


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected back in the lineup Week 7 at Detroit, but how much he'll play coming off a three-game, four-week absence for a broken hand is to be determined.

Starting him in Fantasy already causes enough anxiety, what with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson also in the picture. Robinson performed well in Ingram's absence and could spell him more in the beginning as a result, and Thomas, because of his receiving ability, could play more if the Saints' fall behind, which is distinctly possible given that the Lions are No. 1 against the pass.

They're not such a great matchup for the running backs either, allowing just 73.5 rushing yards per game, second-fewest in the league.

If you're going to start a Saints running back in standard leagues, it should probably be Ingram since he's the best bet to get the ball at the goal line, but you probably shouldn't start a Saints running back in standard leagues. Thomas is OK in points-per-reception leagues.


Saints RB Mark Ingram expects to be full speed Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram seems fully confident he'll play Sunday against the Lions and be at full speed, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram missed the previous three games with a broken hand.

Coach Sean Payton told reporters Ingram is doing well but would not get into specifics about his potential role Sunday.


Saints RB Mark Ingram optimistic about Week 7 return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, who has been sidelined with a hand injury since Week 3, has expressed more optimism than Sean Payton that he will return to action in Week 7 against Detroit.

"I'm healing up nicely," Ingram told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Staying ready to pick up where I left off."

Ingram was off to a strong start before going down. He rushed for 143 yards on 24 carries with three touchdowns in two games.


Payton: A 'chance' Mark Ingram returns after Saints bye


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Saints coach Sean Payton indicated Wednesday during an interview with CBS Sports Radio that running back Mark Ingram might be back in action Week 7 against the Lions after missing three games with a broken hand, per ESPN.

"With the fracture that he had, which is right where the thumb and the hand kind of go together, you gradually just reduce what he’s having to wear. And he’s probably, I would say three or four weeks away from not having to wear anything," Payton said. "But right now, there’s a chance he plays in the next game."


Saints backfield could change after the bye


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) With the Saints off on a Week 6 bye, they have some extra time to get their offensive starters healthy. That could mean the return of Mark Ingram -- and the end of Khiry Robinson's time as a Fantasy starter -- in Week 7.

Ingram suffered a broken hand in Week 2, but ESPN.com cited sources Monday indicating that Ingram could be back after the bye. Robinson has been productive while filling in for Ingram, averaging 90.7 all-purpose yards with 50 touches over three games. Though his role won't disappear -- Robinson has been too productive to not see the field -- Ingram's return is likely to result in a decline in Robinson's value. He had 14 touches in the first two games of the season, though he did also find the end zone once.

The Saints might have too many productive running backs, as evidenced by the fact that three different backs scored in Week 5. Finding enough playing time to keep them all happy might be a difficult task, though Ingram should at least get close to 15 touches per game when he gets back, as he did before the injury. Now might be the time to sell-high on Robinson.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, who's recovering from hand surgery, is on pace to return following the team's Week 6 bye, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. New Orleans visits Detroit in Week 7.

Mark Ingram efficient in limited carries against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram certainly can't be blamed their defeat Sunday in Cleveland. He ran roughshod over the Browns.

Ingram finished with 83 yards on just 11 carries despite a first quarter in which he ran just once for six yards. He provided the team's first big play with a 26-yard jaunt in the second quarter, added a 15-yarder to aid in the drive for the go-ahead score in the third, and pounded over the goal line for a 1-yard score early in the fourth. He added three catches for 21 yards.

New Orleans hosts Minnesota in Week 3.


Mark Ingram overcomes sluggish start with two scores


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Running back Mark Ingram was expected to lead the Saints in carries Week 1 at Atlanta and did, but as part of a tandem that included Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, his opportunities were still limited.

He didn't look like he'd do much with them in the first half, rushing for just 11 yards on four carries, but he made up for it in the second half, scoring on two powerful runs of 3 yards in the fourth quarter. It was the first two-touchdown game of his career.

The two touchdowns were preceded by a sideline tirade, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram appeared to deny coach Sean Payton a congratulatory handshake after the first touchdown, though Payton said he didn't notice any tirade.

Ingram finished with 13 carries for 60 yards, nearly doubling up the Saints' second-leading rusher in both. Thomas had seven carries for 31 yards.

Ingram will aim for another big performance Week 2 at the Browns, who gave up 197 total yards (109 rushing, 88 receiving) to the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell in Week 1.


Mark Ingram could begin 2014 on right foot


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/2/2014) Coming off an impressive preseason in which he started three of the Saints' four games and ran 22 times for 156 yards (averaging 7.1 yards per carry), running back Mark Ingram has a chance to make an even bigger impression Week 1 at Atlanta.

The Falcons ranked 31st against the run last season, allowing 135.8 yards per game.

Ingram didn't do much in two games against them then, rushing nine times for 11 yards in the first and nine times for 32 yards in the second, but he picked up his pace later in the year, rushing 44 times for 249 yards in his final four games (including two playoff games) for an average of 5.7 yards per carry.

Beginning his fourth NFL season, Ingram is expected to play his biggest role yet for the Saints. He'll still split carries with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, but with a strong matchup after a favorable preseason, he's not a bad third running back for Week 1. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him as a top-30 option in non-PPR leagues.
