Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Ingram's first game after Adrian Peterson's departure was everything his fantasy owners could have hoped for, as he totaled 150 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries. Perhaps most importantly, he played 66 percent of the snaps, a season-high. The Packers haven't allowed many fantasy points to opposing running backs, but that's because they both keep opposing offenses off the field and have been playing from ahead in most games. With Aaron Rodgers out of action, neither of those circumstances should be present here, and Ingram should be able to provide low-end RB1 value.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 It was the week Mark Ingram owners were waiting for when the running back totaled a season-high 30 touches for 150 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions. He also played a season-high 66 percent of the snaps with Adrian Peterson off to the Cardinals. Your opportunity to buy him at a discount has officially been slam shut. The Packers had been decent against the run this year despite missing DT Mike Daniels for a few weeks and playing against Devonta Freeman, Joe Mixon, Jordan Howard, and Ezekiel Elliott, while allowing just 97.4 fantasy points in the first five games to running backs. Now part of that success came from the fact that their opponents were only averaging 62 plays per game with Aaron Rodgers holding down sustained drives. They won't have that opportunity anymore, so don't be shy about starting Ingram as a strong RB2 in this game.

Cooks has started to pick up the pace, posting over 80 yards in back-to-back weeks. He is a low-end WR1 against the Falcons secondary. The Packers are just 24th against fantasy running backs, I like Ingram to be a RB1 this week.
