Saints RBs Dwayne Washington and Eno Benjamin are inactive for today's game vs. the Falcons. That leaves just Alvin Kamara and David Johnson in New Orleans' backfield. Kamara should be in for plenty of touches today.

The Saints claimed RB Eno Benjamin off waivers. He's bounced from Arizona to Houston to New Orleans over the past month. Benjamin has a chance to climb to #2 on the Saints' RB depth chart (ahead of David Johnson and Dwayne Washington) by the end of the season, but he's only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

The Saints on Saturday promoted RB David Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. That likely means there will be a role for him Sunday against the Rams. We wouldn't bet on a lot of usage, though. Dwayne Washington and Jordan Howard combined for just 7 snaps last week, with Howard drawing the only carry between them.

Saints RB Mark Ingram is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday's win over the Raiders, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram's absence leaves Dwayne Washington as New Orleans' #2 RB -- and should mean even more work for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ribs) is officially inactive for today's game vs. the Vikings. It's a surprise after he played through this issue last week. Insider Nick Underhill says that Kamara is "looking to get healthy for the long haul." When Kamara missed Week 2, Ingram handled 10 of 16 RB carries and saw 2 targets. He wasn't at 100% for that game, though, and could see a bit more work today. RB Tony Jones is a healthy scratch today, so it's Ingram, Dwayne Washington and Latavius Murray, just called up from the practice squad, in New Orleans' backfield. See where Ingram sits in the Week 4 RB Rankings.

With a rib injury sidelining RB Alvin Kamara, RB Mark Ingram led the backfield in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. He carried 10 times for 60 yards and caught his only 2 targets for 3 more. Dwayne Washington (4-18 rushing) and Tony Jones Jr. (2-8 rushing, 2-12 receiving) factored in as well. Jones actually led the group in playing team, beating Ingram by 9 snaps and 14 routes. New Orleans couldn't get much of anything going in a game that saw the Saints score only 10 points. We'll see about Kamara's status for Week 3.

11:34am EDT 9/18/22

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (rib) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bucs. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 3. RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is active and should operate as New Orleans’ lead back today. He finished RB10 and RB13 in half-PPR points in 2 starts in place of Kamara last year. But his ankle issue and a tough matchup leave him in RB3 territory in the Week 2 Rankings. RBs Tony Jones and Dwayne Washington are also active for the Saints.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (rib) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. He was limited in Wednesday's practice but sidelined on Thursday and Friday. So Kamara looks truly iffy for this one. RBs Mark Ingram (ankle) and Dwayne Washington (hamstring) are also listed as questionable after limited weeks of practice. The Saints also have RB Tony Jones on the active roster and RB Latavius Murray on the practice squad. We'll get their inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Saints Wire projects undrafted rookie RB Abram Smith to land on New Orleans' practice squad, leaving Dwayne Washington and Tony Jones Jr. behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram II on the regular-season roster. Ingram looked pretty good after returning to New Orleans from Houston last season, but he's also 32 (33 in December). The 12th-year vet does look like the #2 RB for the Saints, as expected, ahead of a pair of reserves who have done little through multiple NFL seasons and a UDFA who clearly has more to prove.

7:04pm EST 11/25/21

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Bills. With RB Alvin Kamara (knee) also out, Tony Jones is expected to operate as New Orleans' lead back. RB Dwayne Washington will be the #2.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is "doubtful" for tonight's game vs. the Bills, NFL Network reports. With RB Alvin Kamara (knee) already ruled out, New Orleans is down to RBs Tony Jones and Dwayne Washington. Jones is expected to operate as the lead back and is a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Saints RBs Latavius Murray, Dwayne Washington and Mike Burton have been placed on the COVID list as close contacts of RB Alvin Kamara, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Those 3 guys are out for Sunday's game against the Panthers but will at least be eligible for the 1st round of the playoffs if they continue to test negative. New Orleans will use Ty Montgomery at RB and also promote Tony Jones from the practice squad, according to Glazer. The Saints will likely be forced to go pass-heavy in this one, but Montgomery has some RB3 and DFS appeal.

Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater will start this weekend's finale against the Panthers, HC Sean Payton said Friday. So QB Drew Brees will get the day off. We'd expect the same for RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram and WR Michael Thomas. Dwayne Washington figures to serve as New Orleans' lead back vs. Carolina, with Tre'Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr handling most of the WR duties. It's unclear how much WR Ted Ginn will play after returning last week.

The Lions on Saturday cut RB Dwayne Washington and placed RB Zach Zenner on IR for a back injury, according to MLive.com. That could mean RB Ameer Abdullah has secured a spot on the 53-man roster. We'll see once Detroit finalizes things later today.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington (hip) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bears. Zach Zenner should step in as Detroit’s #3 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington (quad) is out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. RB Zach Zenner figures to step into Washington’s minor role, so we’re not bumping up RB Ameer Abdullah’s Week 3 projection.
