Mark Ingram sees 12 touches Sunday

Mark Ingram carried eight times for 52 yards and added 24 yards on four catches in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram is clearly the number one option at running back in New Orleans, but he is sharing snaps and touches with Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara. If Peterson continues to fall out of favor with the Saints, Ingram's workload could increase, but for now, his value is being limited by the running back committee that New Orleans is utilizing.

Mark Ingram salvages day with five receptions

Mark Ingram rushed six times for 17 yards and caught all five of his targets for 54 yards on Monday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram can be forgiven for having little success in the running game against a ferocious Minnesota defense. The bigger issue is that Alvin Kamara had seven carries and Adrian Peterson had six. If Ingram is truly going to be in the middle of a three-headed monster in the rushing game, his value is going to take a huge hit. For now, still consider Ingram a low-end RB2, but the next game against New England will hopefully provide some more clarity.

Mark Ingram totals 20 yards in preseason debut

Mark Ingram carried four times for nine yards, and added two receptions for 11 yards in the Saints' third preseason game vs. the Houston Texans on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram looked very pedestrian in this game, against the stout run defense of the Texans. He rotated snaps with Adrian Peterson in the early drives. The good news is Peterson failed to impress as well, and the Sean Payton's hot-hand experiment failed this time. Ingram should sit the preseason finale next week, and open Week 1 as the projected RB touch-leader for the Saints.

Mark Ingram expected to make preseason debut this Saturday

Mike Triplett from ESPN is reporting that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton "will likely play Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, Mark Ingram and Cameron Jordan in Saturday's third preseason game after they sat them out of the first two."

Fantasy Impact

We finally get a preview what the Saints' running back timeshare will look like in the regular season. Ingram is in the most competitive timeshare he's ever faced and will have to play well to maintain lead dog status.

Mark Ingram linked in trade with Eagles

Rumors have surfaced reporting trade talks between the Saints and Eagles. The trade would send RB Mark Ingram to the Eagles and C Jason Kelce to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

With Max Unger reported out for the Saints the move for Jason Kelce makes sense. Kelce is a proven NFL center who would help fill a big void in the offensive line. As for Ingram, this move could be a big boost for his fantasy value. Ingram would be going to an Eagles team where he would be the main ball-carrier. By going to the Eagles he avoids competing with Adrian Peterson and will likely be afforded more goalline carries.
