Mark Ingram totals nine touches versus Chargers

Saints RB Mark Ingram carried the ball seven times for 24 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards Saturday against the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

With Ingram suspended for the first four games of the year, it wouldn't surprise me to see him active in the preseason finale. Still, a mid-single-digit round draft target, Ingram should command a significant workload upon his return in October. While he is out, Jonathan Williams is expected to handle the early-down duties with Alvin Kamara in his usual role.

Mark Ingram sees Preseason Week 2 action

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed for 36 yards on seven carries Friday night against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

While Ingram averaged 5.1 YPC on the ground, he lost four yards on his only target. Suspended for the first four games of 2018, expect a mix of Terrance West and Jonathan Wiliams behind Alvin Kamara through the first quarter of the season.

Mark Ingram in attendance at minicamp

After skipping OTAs, RB Mark Ingram is participating in mandatory veteran minicamp, per Mike Triplett of ESPN. Ingram, who is facing a four-game suspension to open the season, is entering the final year a four-year $16 million contract and is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2018 NFL season.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram has been highly productive and an excellent fantasy producer, who set career-highs in almost every category last season while splitting reps with Alvin Kamara. With a looming suspension, Ingram is more likely to hit free agency, especially if Kamara is able to thrive with a heavier workload in Weeks 1-4. While Ingram's presence at Saints' camp bodes well, the loss of four games hurt his fantasy stock, making Ingram an RB3/flex option in 2018.

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.
