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 gains 86 total yards

Mark Ingram carried the ball 14 times for 56 yards and caught two-of-four targets for 30 yards in the New Orleans Saints Week 3 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

It was a solid day for the Saints lead back. Ingram received a carry from the 3 yard line only to lose five yards on the play. He has yet to hit paydirt this season, but has steadily increased his output every week. The unpredictable state of the Saints backfield caps Ingram's ceiling, but makes for a safe floor, so continue to deploy Ingram as a low-end RB2 in Week 4 vs. the Miami Dolphins.
