The Texans signed RB Rex Burkhead. The soon-to-be 31-year-old missed the final 6 games of last season after knee surgery and has a lengthy injury history. He remained reasonably effective last year, averaging 4.1 yards per carry and 7.7 yards per catch. But his days as a fantasy asset are likely over. That's especially true on the Texans, who look like a bad team with a crowded backfield. Houston has added Burkhead, Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram to David Johnson this offseason.
The Texans signed RB Phillip Lindsay to a 1-year, $3.25 million deal. He joins incumbent starter David Johnson and Mark Ingram, who signed a 1-year, $2.5 million deal last week, in Houston's backfield. This looks like a 3-headed attack in what will be a bad offense if QB Deshaun Watson is traded away.
The Texans have agreed to a 1-year deal with RB Mark Ingram, worth "up to" $3 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ingram will join a backfield that currently includes David Johnson, Buddy Howell, Dontrell Hilliard and Scottie Phillips. We'll see whether Houston adds anything else to the group. Perhaps more importantly, we're all still waiting to see who will QB the Texans this fall. Ingram's arrival makes it even easier to remain unexcited about Johnson in current best-ball drafting. Ingram rated below average in Football Outsiders rushing DVOA last season and drew a career-low 6.5 carries per game with the run-heavy Ravens, though. There's a chance he doesn't make any impact in 2021.
The Ravens released RB Mark Ingram. The move was a no-brainer, with Ingram due to make $5 million in 2021. The 31-year-old ranked near the bottom of the league in missed tackles forced and yards after contact per attempt this past season and was a healthy scratch for most of the games down the stretch. He figures to latch on elsewhere at least for training camp this summer but isn't a good bet for a 2021 fantasy impact. J.K. Dobbins is set to enter next season as Baltimore's lead back. We'll see if the Ravens bring back restricted free agent Gus Edwards and/or make any other additions to the backfield.
Ravens RB Gus Edwards (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He’ll continue to work as the 1B behind RB J.K. Dobbins. RB Mark Ingram is also active for the 1st time since Week 14.
Ravens RB Gus Edwards (back) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today, while RB Mark Ingram will remain a healthy scratch, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. J.K. Dobbins and Edwards will continue to form a 1-2 punch in the backfield.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Jaguars. He had fallen to 4th on the depth chart last week, playing just 1 snap. So there's not much of a fantasy impact here. J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill will again serve as Baltimore's top 3 RBs today.
The Ravens have activated RB Mark Ingram and DE Calais Campbell from the COVID list. That makes both players eligible for Tuesday night's game against the Cowboys. Ingram logged just 2 carries last time he played -- against Tennessee -- while J.K. Dobbins led the backfield with 15 rushes and claimed both RB targets. Campbell hasn't played since Week 9, when he left early with a calf injury. Dallas presents a high-upside matchup for him in IDP leagues.
The Ravens had no new positive COVID tests on Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and their game vs. the Steelers is still on for Tuesday night. QB Lamar Jackson, RB J.K. Dobbins and RB Mark Ingram -- along with a host of others -- will miss the game on the Baltimore side. Pittsburgh will be without RB James Conner.
This week's Ravens-Steelers game is "tentatively" being moved to Tuesday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's presumably if Baltimore doesn't have any more COVID positives. There still seems to be a decent chance that this game isn't played in Week 12. Even if they play on Tuesday, QB Lamar Jackson, RB J.K. Dobbins and RB Mark Ingram will remain out. Stay tuned.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. We like Baltimore’s running game to have a big one vs. a New England squad sitting 31st in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA, but it’s completely unclear how the RB touches will be divvied after Ingram missed the the past 2 games.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play against the Patriots tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram led the Ravens in carries through 6 healthy weeks, but it's unclear what this backfield will look like now. Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are all risk/reward RB3s vs. a bad New England run defense.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and then a full-go on Friday. Ingram seems likely to play vs. New England, turning this backfield back into a frustrating 3-man committee.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a limited workout on Wednesday. Ingram either got the day off or suffered a setback. Check back tomorrow for another update. His absence would make RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards much easier to trust vs. a bad Patriots run defense on Sunday night.
Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. HC John Harbaugh said earlier in the day that Ingram has a shot to return for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. We'll update his status again tomorrow.
Asked Wednesday whether RB Mark Ingram is getting close to returning and could be an option against the Patriots on Sunday night, Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters: "Yes and yes." Get ready for the Baltimore backfield committee to be back in full session and frustrating fantasy owners. We'll watch the situation over the next few days.
