Mark Ingram busted in a big way in Week 2. However, I think he just got unlucky. He led the team in carries with 10, and J.K. Dobbins just happened to get a pair of rushing touchdowns on his seven carries. You should gIve Ingram another week and leave him in your lineup. I expect him to rebound a bit in what should be a closer game. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
I wasn't expecting Mark Ingram to get just 10 carries in Week 1, but that's where he ended up as J.K. Dobbins siphoned 7 targets and scored two touchdowns. I still see Ingram as the better option, for the time being, although this can be a great matchup for both players. The Texans' defense allowed Clyde Edwards-Helaire to finish with 138 rush yards in his rookie debut. With so many players involved in this rushing offense, it's tough to depend on Ingram as more than a low-end RB2, but he's a fine start this week in a plus matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There will be some major reactions to this backfield after we saw the touches go Ingram 10, Dobbins 7, and Edwards 4 in Week 1, but how much can we really take from it when the Ravens stomped the Browns 38-6? Well, more than you'd think. The Ravens were continually running away with games last year, and through 15 games, there was just one game where Ingram totaled less than 10 touches. Not surprisingly, that one week was a game the Ravens won 49-13. The following week, they played against the Texans where Ingram totaled 16 touches in a 41-7 win. We knew Dobbins would cut the legs off his potential ceiling, but his floor is in jeopardy, especially when he doesn't score. The Texans are a team to attack with running backs, though. They've allowed 18 running back touchdowns over their last 17 games (10 rushing, 8 receiving). Losing D.J. Reader up the middle of the field is a crushing blow and we saw rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire crush them for 138 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut last week. Here are the touches by running backs in each of their eight games since their Week 10 bye last year (most recent first): 34, 33, 25, 25, 28, 35, 40, 30. That's a lot of touches to go around. My guess would be that Ingram gets back into the 12-14 touch range, which allows him to be played as a high-end RB3. Dobbins himself should get close to Ingram, though I still believe he's second in line when the game is close. Totaling just seven touches in a game hardly suggests you're a weekly play, even if two of those touches were for touchdowns. He's a risky RB3/4 who'd benefit if the game gets out of hand.While Davante Adams played 70 snaps, Lazard was right behind him playing 68 snaps. He's the clear-cut No. 2 receiver in this offense, even if Valdez-Scantling saw two more targets in the first game. Lazard caught all four of his targets for 63 yards and a touchdown, amounting to the No. 13 wide receiver on the week in half-PPR formats. The Lions are really hurting at cornerback and might be starting Amani Oruwariye, Darryl Roberts, and Tony McRae this week. Lazard would see a mix of all three of them, as he played 57.9 percent of his snaps in the slot. That's good to know because we just saw Anthony Miller tag this Lions defense for 76 yards and a touchdown on just six targets last week. Over Lazard's last three regular season games, he's produced 4/63/1, 4/69/1, and 5/45/0. We may not be there just yet, but he has the looks of a solid WR4 moving forward and one who possesses upside should Aaron Rodgers be on a "don't forget about me" campaign.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ingram had a very quiet week with just 10 carries for 29 yards. The bad news is that no Ravens running back was on the field for more than 40 percent of the team's snaps, but the good news is the Texans were 22nd against fantasy backs in Week 1. Ingram II is a dicey RB2 due to usage concerns. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Ingram's workload should remain under close surveillance moving forward. In 15 contests last season, Ingram's carry count only dipped below 12 on two occasions. Only seeing 10 carries in a game in which they maintained a commanding lead is concerning. Watching rookie J.K. Dobbins take the goal line duties is also worrisome. Ingram's involvement should be monitored closely going forward.
