Mark Ingram II
RB - BAL
When asked about how the team will deploy their running backs this year, Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said they're figuring it out "on the fly everyday in training camp."
Baltimore returns both Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards this season. Additionally, Justice Hill will be entering his second season and the team also drafted J.K. Dobbins in the second round. "To have that kind of backfield is a blessing. We definitely want to get into training camp and work through it and kind of evolve as we go," Roman said. We anticipate Ingram and Dobbins getting the bulk of the work in this offense. Both could wind up being mid-round values in upcoming drafts.
Ravens' General Manager Eric DeCosta said that he expects the Ravens to use all four running backs next year, stating "we've got the four running backs and they all do different things well."
Just months after setting the all-time rushing record for a team, the Ravens used their second round pick on J.K. Dobbins out of Ohio State. Even though Mark Ingram was the lead back last season, his 202 carries were only good for 20th in the league on a team that ran the ball more than anyone else. For comparison, quarterback Lamar Jackson's 176 carries landed him at 23rd overall while he also accumulated more yards. The Ravens ran the ball 98 more times than any other team in the league last year, and adding an explosive back like Dobbins just gives them the opportunity to keep the pace into 2020. Gus Edwards had 133 carries last season and Justice Hill had 58, so the Ravens aren't afraid to spread the ball among their committee. That being said, Ingram had 46 red zone touches compared to 37 combined between Edwards and Hill. Ingram's established role as the goal line back gives him more value than any other running back in Baltimore, but expect Dobbins to get a healthy dose of opportunity as a rookie as well. Dobbins is certainly an intriguing sleeper while Edwards and Hill should only be handcuffed for Ingram owners.
Mark Ingram believes he can play at a high level for at least four or five more years.
Ingram believes he can play at a high-level until his mid 30's, but the odds are very much against him. However, Frank Gore has proved this is possible. Ingram has been in a committee most of his career and has only had four seasons of at least 200 carries. He is coming off productive 2019 season, logging 202 carries for 1,018 yards to go along with 26 receptions for 247 yards and 15 total touchdowns (10 rushing, 5 receiving). Ingram is currently 18th among all running backs in the expert consensus rankings.
Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram carried the ball six times for 22 yards and added a nine-yard reception in a 28-12 loss to the Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Ingram was clearly limited by the calf injury that he sustained toward the end of the regular season as he was spotted on the sidelines getting treatment on his lower leg throughout the game. Despite the disappointing conclusion to his season, Ingram should be treated as a low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts for the 2020 season.
Mark Ingram is listed as active for Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the Titans.
Ingram strained his calf Week 16 and was only able to practice on Friday. He is all systems go and should play his usual role as the lead Ravens back. It is unclear if Ingram will be limited, but expect to him get anywhere from 15-20 carries. Fantasy owners in playoff contests or DFS can safely start him.
