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 assumes workhorse role; gains 92 total yards

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 49 yards (4.1 average), and caught four-of-five targets for 43 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' Week 14 loss against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram had to carry the load in this one, albeit a relatively light one (16 touches), consdering his RB-mate Alvin Kamara left the game (concussion) during their first drive. He demonstrated his trademark runs, churning out extra yards after first contact, in this game. Ingram took a shot in the back going down, late in the 4th quarter, but reentered the game immediately after so crisis was averted. Whether Kamara clears the concussion protocol in time or not, Ingram is still a locked-and-loaded RB1, and should receive more than 16 touches in Week 15 against the New York Jets.
