Mark Ingram suspended four games for PEDs

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Saints running back Mark Ingram has been suspended four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

Fantasy Impact

This is huge news that is likely to push Alvin Kamara to the top of the first-round in fantasy drafts, while Ingram himself should fall into the middle rounds. The suspension has been looming and the Saints were apparently preparing for the suspension to be handed down, though they didn't add a running back of significance, meaning they believe that Kamara can shoulder the load. While Kamara obviously gets a boost, it's also an underrated boost to Drew Brees' value in fantasy drafts, as Kamara is better as a receiver than he is an early-down back.

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.
