Ingram had a fine fantasy season in 2016, finishing ninth in the NFL with a 5.1 YPC average and finishing as a top-15 running back for the third straight year. Although Adrian Peterson will surely cut into his work, Ingram should be the primary ball carrier once again, and be successful. Minnesota presents a tough task in Week 1, as they allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs last year. There's also the revenge factor in this one, as the Saints will surely want Peterson to get some goal-line work against his former team, which lessens the chances of a touchdown for Ingram. Still, the Saints offense can beat any defense and Ingram should get the lion's share of the work, making him a fine RB2 play.

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.
