Mark Ingram gets shut down as Saints are eliminated

Mark Ingram rushed 10 times for 25 yards, and caught one-of-one targets for three yards, in the New Orleans Saints' heartbreaking divisional round loss against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Mark Ingram was running on sand in this game, unable to gain effective yardage on hardly any of his carries (his long gain was for nine yards). The Minnesota defense shut the doors on the running game, especially for Ingram. It's a post-season to forget for Ingram, as he generated a measly 63 yards on 21 touches. He ends his seventh season with 309 touches for 1,603 yards and 12 TDs. Expect him to take a backseat to Kamara next season, but should still be viewed as a serviceable RB1/2 in 2018.

Mark Ingram gains 35 scoreless yards

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 22 yards, and caught one target for 13 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' wild card win against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

For the second game in a row, Ingram was given less than 10 carries, and his stat line suffered again. Sean Payton employed a pass-heavy game plan in this one and Ingram owners were left wanting more. He wasn't the goal-line back of choice either, as Kamara was the one in on the goal-line play where Zach Line managed to vulture both backs. Ingram will try to get back on track at Minnesota where they have been susceptible against the run.

Mark Ingram stymied in regular season finale

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 35 yards, and caught four-of-four targets for 19 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' Week 17 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Mark Ingram couldn't get rolling against the Bucs. In recent weeks he's been able to salvage his fantasy game by breaking a long run, or scoring but could get neither this week. Kamara outperformed him with less touches, as has been the case since the Adrian Peterson trade. Season-long leagues are over, but DFS continues on into the playoffs. Ingram should have sneaky value in the hopes of a bounce back effort.

Mark Ingram solid in Week 16 win; scores TD

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 44 yards and a TD, and caught three-of-three targets for 22 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' Week 16 win against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Mark Ingram was out-touched by Alvin Kamara yet again in this one, but he scored on a 26-yard scamper to save his fantasy day. Ingram could hardly gain yardage all game on the ground, averaging a measly 3.4 yards per carry. It has yet to be determined whether they plan to rest their starters in Week 17, but considering a win would clinch the division, they will likely play this one out. If your league extends into Week 17, keep plugging Ingram in as an RB1 against the Buccaneers.

Mark Ingram rebounds in monster game; scores two TDs

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 74 yards and two TDs, and caught five-of-six targets for 77 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' Week 15 win against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram broke off two 50-plus yard plays (one rushing and one receiving) as he got back on track. He seemingly struggled without Kamara, last week, and he bounced back in a big way for his owners still alive in the playoffs. He did, for the first time, get out-touched by Kamara (17-18), but he was the more effective back, this week. Lock Ingram in as an elite RB1 for the championship Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons.
