Ingram has been moving on up in my rankings of late. He averaged 4.9 yards a carry last year, looked great in the playoffs and Sproles is gone. He caught a touchdown pass against the Titans, his first receiving TD while in the NFL and is being groomed for a larger role in the offense. His ADP is very low, so drafting him won't break the bank, and his upside is pretty high this year.

Coming off an encouraging '13, he'll compete with Khirly for his share of early-down duties.
The fragile back is second in line & will handle goal line duties.

These darn New Orleans RB's are going to continue to drive fantasy owners up-the-wall. Don't touch them unless the value is great. They will once again be splitting time on any given Sunday.
With Chris Johnson in town, many wonder if there will be a timeshare or not. Ivory was good last season, and by the numbers, was a better runner than CJ, but Johnson could improve with a better offensive line in front of him. I'm on the fence about drafting either guy in leagues if I can avoid them.

Ingram has looked good in the preseason, which is going to zap the fantasy value of RB Khiry Robinson if the two continue to receive a split of the rushing attempts with Thomas playing in passing situations. For the first time this year, I have Ingram ranked ahead of Robinson. Ingram has seized his opportunity in preseason, Robinson has not seized it.
Considering the Jets offense, I do not think Ivory did that bad with 833 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns. I do not think he will ever be an elite fantasy back, but with WR Eric Decker improving the passing offense, Ivory could emerge as a nice flex play in 2014. Chris Johnson will lead the team in carries, but Ivory will see plenty of touches and could emerge as the goal line option.

Mark Ingram seems to finally be in line to get 200+ carries for the Saints with Sproles out of town but will still lose most passing down work to Pierre Thomas.
Chris Ivory has plenty of juice in his legs but is injury prone and playing behind a back with every-down skills in Chris Johnson. Ivory should still flirt with flex2 value and has shown he can produce at an RB2 level if Johnson misses time or gets demoted. The Jets will run enough for both backs to have value and both will see their value spike if Michael Vick gets starts this season.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Looked better last year but won't get enough touches to be a difference-maker.
A better runner than C. Johnson, but Ivory can't stay healthy, doesn't catch passes.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Could finally get a shot in contract year. Barely has RB2 upside though with how Saints shift RBs around.
Just how much of his role will Chris Johnson cut into?
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Keep an eye on Ingram's situation. If you can draft him very late in the draft he has some potential upside. I have been keeping an eye on him in the later part of the 2013 season and there is some potential left in Ingram.
Chris Johnson crushed Ivory's value
