Ingram was a strong fantasy player much of last season, averaging the ninth-most fantasy points per game through 12 games. His usage was good, as he averaged 98 total yards on four receptions and 14 rushing attempts per game. His six-touchdown total held back his fantasy numbers, but he was the preferred goal-line back, and that number for a full 16 games would have been more, while there is upside for even more in 2016, as Ingram wasn't even there for the strong surge by Drew Brees during the final four games of 2015. Ingram averaged a nice 4.6 yards per carry in 2015, and even though Tim Hightower came on strong as his replacement, the efficiency was not there as Hightower averaged 3.9 yards per carry. Hightower's numbers were built on an average of 24 touches in the last four games. He'll be 30 going into this coming season, while Ingram will just be 26. There is no way Ingram loses his job, and if he can get in on some of that 24 touch-per-game action in 2016, well, he'll dominate in fantasy. I doubt that happens, but I'll take the 18 touches per game in a good offense and be happyMartin re-signed with Tampa Bay after a big free agency season in 2015. Will he be able to muster the drive for this year like last? Probably, but it always concerns me a bit. The good news is that he has the ability to put up numbers like he did in 2015. I do wish Martin were the every-down back instead of losing touches to Charles Sims

Last season's expanded role in the passing game a delight for PPR owners. Just one full 16 game in his career however. Fantasy's number 3 overall RB in 2015 should be in line for another great year.
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
When analyzing Ingram's historical performance, over the past 5 seasons, Mark Ingram has only played in all 16 games 1 time. C.J. Spiller may cut into his PPR value. Ingram has never rushed for over 1,000 yards in a single season.I find it difficult to place a lot of stock in Doug Martin as a feature back with the presence of Charles Sims. I would not surprise me if Sims receives enough carries to limit Martin's fantasy value this season. In the past 4 seasons he's had 2 good years and 2 average years. I am not willing to invest a top draft pick to find out what his season is going to be like in 2016.

Loved what Ingram did in '15 but will be hardpressed to reach close to that reception total with a healthy Spiller and rookie WR Thomas in the foldI like Doug Martin, I just like his back up more.

The talent and role is there for Ingram, but Saints like to use more than one back and he never seems to stay healthyWas crazy good last year but he may not be needed quite as much and Charles Sims is always lurking

6th-best FAN PPG average among RBs in '15 (min. 8 games) thanks to a career-high 50 receptions - with passing game duties now, he's got elite upside if (and it's a big IF) he can manage something close to 16 games Stepped up in a major way in '15, handling 288 carries and finishing as a top 3 fantasy RB as Tampa Bay looked to limit rookie QB Winston's exposure in the pass game - likely will see a reduction in workload in '16 as Bucs' lengthen Winston's leash and also mix passing down RB Charles Sims in a bit more

Ingram has shown he can be a complete back. He has a nice floor.

In 2014, Ingram averaged 12.5 fantasy points per game and was a terrific fantasy asset. In 2015, Ingram averaged 12.8, which was even better than Doug Martin, who finished as the No. 3 fantasy running back. What you should take from this, is that if Ingram stays healthy, you've got yourself a top 5 or even top 3 fantasy back in the third round.The Muscle Hampster was second in the league with over 1,400 rushing yards but only managed to find the end zone on 6 runs. Being the type of runner he is, Martin is likely to see a big bump in touchdown rate, and assuming Winston continues to progress and at least one of Tampa's top three receivers actually stays healthy, Martin could see even better fantasy numbers in 2016.

Ingram was impressive with 166 carries for 769 yards and six touchdowns. The big improvement was 50 receptions for 405 yards. If he can stay healthy, he is a slam-dunk Top-5 fantasy option. However, staying healthy has been a problem for him most of his career, which is why I view him as a low RB1 to high RB2.Martin had a great contract year with 288 rushing attempts for 1402 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also added 33 receptions for 271 yards and a touchdown. He resigned with Tampa Bay, which should allow him to continue being a solid RB1 in 2016 on an ascending offense.
