Sean Payton: C.J. Spiller the 'most explosive player on the field'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Saints coach Sean Payton is thrilled to have landed running back C.J. Spiller, who will team with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson in one of the league's top backfields.

"I think we expected Spiller to be somewhere else with a higher number. But it all worked out," Payton told The Advocate.

Spiller joined the Saints on a four-year, $16 million deal.

“His cutup is unbelievable,” Payton said of Spiller. ”And I’m not talking about last season because I think it became challenging, but you go back a couple of years and start looking at his screen reel, a sweep reel, a return reel.

“So when you watch his film you think of a lot of things he can do. He’s physical, he’s the most explosive player on the field a lot of times when you’re watching him. … So he’s an exciting player that clearly heading into free agency there wasn’t any thought about and then after that first rush there was some interest and I think to his agent’s credit they looked at it from a how he was going to be used standpoint, the system, the offense and wanting to be a part of it and we feel the same way.”

"I’m excited to continue my career in Black and Gold," Ingram said. "I’d like to thank my family, the Saints organization and my teammates. I’m glad that now we can turn our attention back to football and working hard to get better as a team with the ultimate goal of winning a championship."

After being selected in the first round of the 2011 draft, Ingram has appeared in 50 games with the Saints during his four-year career. He rushed for 964 yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 2014, adding 145 yards on 29 receptions.

Sean Payton hopeful about retaining RB Mark Ingram


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Despite the fact that New Orleans is $22 million above the salary cap, Saints coach Sean Payton expressed optimism about the team's chances of re-signing free agent running back Mark Ingram, per The Advocate.

“I spoke with him today," Payton told the paper Monday nght. "The good thing about Mark is that we’re real close with his agent. We work a lot with Joel (Segal). [GM] Mickey [Loomis] will talk with him quite a bit. Obviously he’s someone that we want to keep. Hopefully we can do that.”

In 13 games last season, Ingram ran for 964 yards and nine touchdowns while catching 29 passes for 145 yards.

According to NFL.com, it's unlikely the Saints can afford to bring back Ingram.


Saints weighing all options before reaching a deal with Mark Ingram


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Saints general manager Mickey Loomis told reporters he's still interested in reaching a deal with impending free agent running back Mark Ingram, but is still weighing all options reports the Times-Picayune.

"You've got to meet the requirement for getting under and then there's some planning you can do as to, what do the contracts look like for the re-signs, for the additions, for draft picks?" Loomis said. "So we're kind of in middle of that process of trying to figure out, what's the market here? Are we going to be able to re-sign Mark Ingram, for example? What's that going to look like? Where we are cap-wise is going to dictate part of the structure for these deals. So it's all intertwined. It's not like it's one thing and that follows the other; they're all kind of intertwined."

Ingram, 25, totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014, nearly notching his first career 1,000-yard season. Ingram has 2,426 career rushing yards through his first four seasons with the Saints (50 games).

"In free agency, everyone wants to see what the market is," Loomis said. "The question is, can that get done prior to March 10? Can both sides get a good feel for that beforehand and do a deal, or do we need to wait and see where all the offers are and respond accordingly?"


Mark Ingram on free agency: Saints 'definitely' want me back


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) With free agency looming, running back Mark Ingram told Katherine Terrell of the Times-Picayune on Thursday that the Saints "definitely" want him back next season.

Ingram totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014, nearly notching his first career 1,000-yard season. Ingram has 2,426 career rushing yards through his first four seasons with the Saints (50 games). He was also selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl, replacing Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who is in the Super Bowl.


Saints RB Mark Ingram to reaplace Marshawn Lynch in Pro Bowl


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Saints running back Mark Ingram will replace Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch in the 2015 Pro Bowl, the team announced.

Ingram totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014. Ingram is the first Saints running back to be selected to the Pro Bowl since Deuce McAllister in 2003.


Don't lose faith in Mark Ingram


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Though Saints running back Mark Ingram scored a touchdown Week 16 against Atlanta, plunging in from 1 yard out in the first quarter, he didn't have the most productive afternoon, rushing 13 times for 38 yards and catching three passes for 17. He's now run for less than 60 yards in three straight games, averaging 46.7 during that stretch compared to 101.3 in his previous six.

It's not like the Saints have turned to other options, though, which was Ingram's problem in previous seasons. Khiry Robinson was the only other running back to get any carries in Week 16, and he had just two. It's just that the Saints haven't been in a position to run the ball in recent weeks, losing big in both Week 14 and, of course, Week 16.

So what about Week 15? That's partly on Ingram. He got the carries, finishing with 17, and didn't do much with him.

The good news is that the Saints should be able to win handily Week 17 at Tampa Bay, which should mean plenty of garbage-time opportunities against a so-so run defense. Outside of maybe PPR leagues, you'll want to keep Ingram active in Fantasy.


Saints RB Mark Ingram finds the end zone in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram found the end zone for the second consecutive week in his team's 30-14 defeat to the Falcons in Week 16. 

Ingram barreled his way into the end zone from 1-yard out in the second quarter. He finished the game with 13 carries for 38 yards and a score. He also caught all three of his targets for 17 yards.

He'll need 93 yards to crack the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. He'll look to do so Week 17 against Tampa Bay.


Saints RB Mark Ingram hits paydirt late


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram gained 44 yards on his first 16 carries Monday night in Chicago. But on his 17th and final tote, Ingram busted outside for a 15-yard touchdown with 1:47 remaining.

It was Ingram's first score since Week 9 and seventh this season. Ingram was not targeted in the passing game.

He'll play the Falcons in Week 16.


Mark Ingram suffers from blowout loss


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Just when you thought Mark Ingram was good for 20 carries every week -- a mark he had reached in five of the previous six -- he goes and gives you only 10 in Week 14.

Of course, the flow of the game probably had something to do with it. The Saints were trailing 17-0 in the first quarter of a game they ultimately lost 41-10. With their offense, they aren't blown out too often, and in any other scenario, Ingram gets his touches. He remains a must-start despite the down week.

For other major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Saints RBs Ingram, Thomas held down in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) A lopsided score precluded the Saints backfield from receiving much of an opportunity Sunday against Carolina to run the ball.

The group was led by Mark Ingram with 10 carries for 43 yards and Pierre Thomas, who had just one run in the first half and finished with five for 38 yards. The two combined for six catches for just 27 yards.

The pair will get another chance at Chicago next Monday night.


Four Saints probables ready to roll for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Saints have cleared four probables for their Week 14 game against Carolina, including running backs Travaris Cadet (hamstring), Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Mark Ingram (ankle/toe). The other is linebacker Kyle Knox (hand).


Saints list Mark Ingram as probable in final Week 14 injury report


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Saints listed running backs Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet as probable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Also listed as probable were linebackers Kyle Knox and Khiry Robinson.

History could repeat itself for Mark Ingram


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) With four 100-yard rushing efforts in his last six games, Saints running back Mark Ingram has become a Fantasy mainstay. His performance Week 9 at Carolina, when he ran 30 times for 100 yards and two scores, helped establish him as such.

So his Fantasy owners will be pleased to know he's facing the Panthers again in Week 14, this time at home. It's a big reason why he's the CBSSports.com Start of the Week.

The Panthers have been OK against the run recently but are still suspect overall, ranking 19th with 116.8 yards per game. And as much as some of their biggest offensive contributors have struggled against the Saints in recent meetings, the flow of the game should allow Ingram to get another 20 carries. That seems to be the Saints' game plan anyway. He's gotten at least that many five of the last six weeks.

Again, you'd probably be starting Ingram anyway, but this matchup makes it an easy call. Jamey Eisenberg ranks him sixth among running backs for this week, and Dave Richard ranks him eighth.


Saints' Ingram limited again Thursday with ankle and toe injuries


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram was limited again during Thursday's practice with an ankle and toe injury. He is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Panthers. 

Ingram is averaging 5.0 yards per carry with six touchdowns.


Saints RB Mark Ingram limited with ankle and toe injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, who's cleared 100 yards rushing in four of his past six games, was limited in Wednesday's practice with ankle and toe injuries. Ingram plays the Panthers on Sunday.

Workload no worry for Mark Ingram


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram bounced back from a couple of subpar outings with a big game in Week 13 against the Steelers.

Ingram, who rushed the ball just 11 times for 27 yards in the team's previous game, received a heavy workload in Sunday's game. He rushed the ball 23 times and came away with 122 yards, his fourth 100-yard performance of the season and best since Week 8, when he racked up 172 yards.

Ingram is going to get a lot of carries whenever the Saints can, as evidence by his five games with 20-plus carries in six opportunities since his return from a hand injury. He hasn't scored in the last four games, however neither has any other running back on the team. Few backs seem as assured of getting a big workload as Ingram,  who looks to be a must-start Fantasy option down the stretch. 


Saints running back Mark Ingram passes 100-yard mark again


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram managed to pass the 100-yard mark for the fourth time this season, rushing for 122 yards on 23 carries in New Orleans win over Pittsburgh Sunday. 

Ingram bounced back after only managing 27 yards on 11 carries against the Ravens last week. 

Ingram and the Saints will look to stay hot against Panthers next week. In their last matchup, Ingram ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns. 


Saints list nine players on final injury report for Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The Saints have ruled out inside linebacker Kyle Knox (hand) and running back Khiry Robinson (forearm) for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Wide receiver Robert Meachem (ankle) was the only player on New Orleans' injury report deemed questionable for the game.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), running back Mark Ingram (shoulder), cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee), inside linebacker Curtis Lofton (ankle), tackle Zach Strief (chest) and running back Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder).


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.


RBs Mark Ingram, Travaris Cadet among Saints cleared for MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
