Week 11 Outlook

Sun 1:00pm ET
Matchup (?)
Week Rank (ECR) RB #14
Projection 9.9 pts



Ingram compiled 170 combined yards in the prior three games before burning the Bengals for 162 yards and his first score since Week 5's return. The Eagles have witnessed an NFL-low 19.8 rush attempts per game, but they're also ceding 4.7 yards per rush after a rough Sunday night against Ezekiel Elliott. A Saints squad stockpiling an NFL-best 36.7 points per game should keep affording both Ingram and Alvin Kamara red-zone opportunities. Although not a weekly lock, Ingram remains a relatively strong RB2.

The Eagles are 5th against fantasy running backs, but were horrible against the run last week. Ingram is a RB2 option in a game that could turn into a shootout.

Ingram has returned to take a bit out of Alvin Kamara's touches but an interesting development has taken place. The Saints have given Kamara most of the short-yardage work, which puts a cap on Ingram's scoring upside. He's still a solid RB2, even with limited touches but if those touchdowns don't start adding up, Ingram has limited upside.

RB20 in FAN PPG (half PPR) since Week 5 (on 14.8 touches per game) - has easy upside to push top 15 territory with that workload for an offense averaging NFL-high 36.7 PPG
