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 steamrolls Bills for three rushing TDs

Mark Ingram rushed 21 times for 131 yards (6.2 average) with three TDs in the New Orleans Saints' Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram ran angry all game long, shedding tackles and seemingly falling forward on every carry. Interestingly he wasn't targeted at all in the pass game, with Alvin Kamara soaking up all five RB targets. It didn't matter since he punched it in to the end zone three times. He'll be an elite RB1 play in Week 11 when they face the Redskins.
