 The Saints are clearly going with backups this game, and while Ingram may end up with a few touches, it won't be enough to start him in a bad matchup versus Carolina.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Previously averaging 10.9 carries per contest, Cook has handled 35 handoffs in two games since the Vikings fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. They need a win to advance into the postseason, so expect another hefty workload. In a week littered with uncertainty, he'd stand out as an elite option if not for facing the Bears, who limited him to 10 yards in Week 10. Only the Ravens have granted fewer fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, so there's certainly bust risk despite the game's importance. The promise of opportunity preserves his status as a low-end RB1 during a chaotic final weekend.The Saints already secured home-field advantage throughout the NFC bracket, but Sean Payton has not revealed if he will rest his starters on Sunday. Averaging 50 yards over the last five games, Ingram has turned too touchdown-dependent to merit the risk. Play it safe and find someone who should play an entire game.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cook is doing better in fantasy since the Vikings changed play callers, Cook should be a RB1 at home this week.
