2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Saints traded back into the first round of the 2011 draft in order to select Ingram, the top rated running back in that year’s draft. While big things were expected of him, knee and turf toe injuries limited his effectiveness as a rookie and caused him to miss six games. With just 474 rushing yards and five touchdowns, Ingram was a disappointment as he struggled to show much explosiveness. Off-season knee surgery and a crowded Saints backfield cloud his fantasy outlook for 2012. The biggest issue is whether Ingram is really as mediocre as he looked last season or whether injuries hampered his ability to show his true ability as a runner. While no one is predicting a breakout season, you could make the argument that he ranks as a worthy RB3 with upside provided he can stay healthy and become the Saints full time short yardage option, a role he shared with Pierre Thomas last season. Don’t reach for Ingram hoping he becomes a bell cow runner in the Saints explosive offense. However, he looks good as a lower end RB3 in standard scoring leagues. Knock him down further in PPR formats since he showed little ability as a pass catcher as a rookie and the Saints have one of the league’s top receiving backs in Darren Sproles.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mark Ingram expected to play     -- Sun Nov 27 8:30 am --

Concussion

FF Today's Take: After practicing all week, Ingram need to be cleared by an independent doctor in order to clear the final hurdle of the league's concussion protocol. He'll split time with Tim Hightower as the Saints battle the Rams.

Concussion
New Orleans got good news Wednesday, as coach Sean Payton said running back Mark Ingram will practice Wednesday. Ingram was evaluated for a concussion in last Thursday night's loss to the Panthers. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Ingram is working through the concussion protocol and while the Saints haven't made it official it sounds like he's passed and will likely play this week against the Rams. Ingram is in timeshare with Tim Hightower capping both of their ceilings at a RB2 level.
Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower will split carries     -- Tue Nov 8 2:00 pm --

Saints plan to keep both backs involved moving forward
Mark Ingram finally made his way off the bench three series into Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, one week after he was demoted for fumbling for the second game in a row. Now, after a big game from both, Ingram and Tim Hightower will share the load moving forward, according to Saints coaches. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: It looks like the Saints will stay committed to the run on Sunday as they have for the past two games -- especially since Denver has the NFL’s No. 1 passing defense., so both make intriguing fantasy plays.
RBBC in New Orleans?     -- Mon Oct 31 10:45 am --

Tim Hightower earning more snaps
#Saints RB Tim Hightower earned more carries for next week's gm vs #49ers, per source. Said team has committee approach no matter starter (Britt McHenry on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Tim Hightower touched the ball 27 times in Week 8 after Mark Ingram had fumbling issues. Obviously the RBBC is a drain on Ingram's value however both backs have a prime matchup in Week 9 against the 49ers.
Falcons to continue RB timeshare     -- Tue Sep 13 3:50 pm --

Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman will continue to split carries
Devonta Freeman, the starter, played 36 of 65 offensive snaps while Tevin Coleman played 32. Coleman accumulated 117 total yards on his 13 touches, while Freeman had 40 yards on his 15. The Falcons hope to fix those run-game woes this week against the Oakland Raiders. Last week, the Raiders gave up 88 rushing yards on 22 attempts to Mark Ingram and the New Orleans Saints. The Raiders were 13th in the league against the run last season, surrendering 104.9 rushing yards per game. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: "We know both these guys are going to be a factor,'' Quinn said. ``We just had two running backs active [Sunday], so for the whole portion of the game, both of them have done significant things really well. We’re going to utilize them both. Looks like owners will have to get used to the fact that neither will assume a Lamar Miller-type of workhorse role going forward.
