Keaontay Ingram Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 25 times for 120 yards (4.8 per carry) in Sunday's narrow loss to the Chargers. He added 3 catches for 20 yards and a TD among 3 targets. Keaontay Ingram claimed the only 2 other RB carries, while Corey Clement drew the only other RB target. Conner now gets a Week 13 bye and then a tough trio of RB-scoring matchups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals have informed RB Eno Benjamin that they're releasing him. It's a surprising move given that Benjamin spent 3 games as starter this year, while James Conner was out. He played just 1 offensive snap in Sunday's win over the Rams, though, despite being active and healthy. It appears the team will proceed with Keaontay Ingram and Darrel Williams behind Conner. (Williams has at least 2 more games on IR.)

Cardinals RB James Conner ran for 69 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Rams, adding 17 yards on 3 receptions. He dominated backfield work in his 2nd game back from a 3-week rib injury. RB Keaontay Ingram claimed the team's only other RB carry. No other Cardinals RB drew a target in the game. Conner gets another tough rushing matchup with the 49ers in Week 11, but the kind of work volume he got Sunday will make him a weekly starter for most fantasy football teams going forward. Eno Benjamin was active but didn't get a touch in the game.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday's practice and the Vikings game. RB Darrel Williams (hip) was placed on IR on Wednesday, leaving Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram as Arizona's healthy RBs.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Saints. That leaves Eno Benjamin as Arizona's lead back. He handled 15 carries and 3 targets last week and should be in for similar volume tonight. RB Corey Clement was elevated from the practice squad and joins RB Keaontay Ingram behind Benjamin.

Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin is on the Week 7 injury report with a foot. Initial reports from the team's beat writers had Benjamin limited in Tuesday's practice, but the team's official site has him not practicing at all. We should have more clarity on the situation when Arizona releases its final injury report on Wednesday afternoon. But if your waivers run tonight, RB Keaontay Ingram is worth grabbing.

Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin handled 15 of 18 team RB rushes and all 3 backfield targets in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He gained just 37 yards on the ground, though (2.5 per carry). Benjamin added 28 receiving yards on 3 catches among 3 targets. We'll see whether James Conner can make it back for the Week 7 meeting with New Orleans. Rookie Keaontay Ingram was the only other Arizona RB to record any touches, carrying 3 times for 7 yards.

Cardinals RBs James Conner (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee) are out for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. That leaves RBs Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram on the active roster, with RBs Ty'Son Williams and Corey Clement on the practice squad. We'll see if Arizona elevates Williams or Clement, but expect Benjamin to lead this backfield in carries on Sunday and handle most of the passing-down work. He's a rock-solid RB2 vs. Seattle's 26th-ranked RB defense.

Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson hears that Cardinals RB James Conner (rib) is expected to miss Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks "and perhaps additional time." RB Darrel Williams (knee) is also likely to miss Week 6, leaving Eno Benjamin and rookie Keaontay Ingram as the healthy RBs on the active roster. RBs Ty’Son Williams and Corey Clement are on the practice squad. The 207-pound Benjamin probably won't be a workhorse this weekend, but he can contribute as a runner and pass-catcher and could approach 20 total touches.

Cardinals RB Darrel Williams will miss at least this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks with a sprained knee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB James Conner's status for that one is uncertain after he hurt his ribs last week. RB Jonathan Ward (hamstring) is heading to IR, leaving Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram as the healthy RBs on Arizona's active roster. The Cardinals signed Corey Clement and Ty'Son Williams to the practice squad on Tuesday. We'll track this situation over the next few days, but Benjamin has a shot to be a nice Week 6 fantasy play if Conner can't go.

Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed reports that "multiple league sources" identified Cardinals RB Darrel Williams as a potential surprise candidate to be cut or traded. Williams' usage through 2 preseason games has seemed to indicate he might be ahead of Eno Benjamin and others on the RB depth chart, but that has also accompanied persistently positive reports on Benjamin's performance. We'll see how this one plays out over the next week plus, with roster cutdowns progressing. For now, there's at least risk to adding Williams late in fantasy football drafts. We'd hold off on selecting him to best-ball rosters with no in-season management.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury singled out RB Eno Benjamin for his impressive offseason. “Eno Benjamin has been tremendous,” Kingsbury said. "... He’s out there and looks like he could be a starting running back." We don't expect Benjamin to push RB James Conner for the lead job, but it sounds like he's squarely in the mix for the #2 RB spot. Benjamin is competing for that job with Darrel Williams and 6th-round rookie Keaontay Ingram.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim gave a breakdown on rookie RB Keaontay Ingram. "A big, physical back. A downhill runner. A good special teamer. A guy that we think can certainly contribute," Keim said. "Thought he had a really nice year this year and a lot of good things to like about him.” In 2021, Ingram posted 156-911-5 (10 games) as a power back for USC. Across 4 seasons (2 at USC, 2 at Texas) Ingram collected 89 receptions. The 6th-round pick will battle Eno Benjamin, Jonathan Ward, Jaylen Samuels and UDFA Ronnie Rivers for a depth role behind James Conner.
