Mark Ingram Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Saints signed RB David Johnson to the active roster. He'll help New Orleans replace RB Mark Ingram, who's likely to miss the rest of the season with an MCL injury. We wouldn't bother adding Johnson to fantasy rosters even as an Alvin Kamara handcuff. RB Dwayne Washington is also on the active roster.

Saints RB Mark Ingram suffered a "slight tear" of his MCL in Monday night's loss to the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram doesn't need surgery but is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks, which likely ends his season. Ingram hasn't been a fantasy option this season, but he's put a slight dent in RB Alvin Kamara's usage. So consider this news a moderate boost to Kamara's rest-of-season outlook.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 26 yards in a Week 13 loss to Tampa Bay. He added 2 catches (on 3 targets) for 11 yards. In a frustrating reality, Kamara was nearly splitting snaps with Mark Ingram going into halftime (13-10). The edge wound up being 35-25 in Kamara’s favor, but the game plan (combined with the matchup) proved too much to overcome. The former RB1 has now been held under 13 PPR points 5 straight. Week 14 turns up a bye, followed by a more favorable draw vs. Atlanta.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He should step back in as New Orleans’ #2 RB behind Alvin Kamara but isn’t a fantasy option.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers. Ingram has been out since Week 8 but should step back in as New Orleans’ #2 RB if he’s able to play this weekend.

The Saints signed RB David Johnson to their practice squad, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Johnson turns 31 in a month and mustered just 3.4 yards per carry on 67 attempts with the Texans last year. New Orleans is expected to be without RB Mark Ingram for another week or 2, so Johnson might find his way onto the active roster. But he remains well off the fantasy radar.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. RB Alvin Kamara posted a season-high 88% snap rate with Ingram out last week.

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 Mark Ingram is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Raiders with a knee injury. Stay tuned for an update. RB Alvin Kamara should pick up more touches with Ingram out.

With Alvin Kamara (ribs) out, RB Mark Ingram started Sunday's game against the Vikings. But he left briefly with in injury early in the 2nd half, and Latavius Murray wound up leading the team in carries. Murray rushed 11 times for 57 yards and a TD. Ingram totaled just 30 yards on 10 rushes, adding 3 receptions for 13 yards. We'll see about Kamara's status heading into Week 5.

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.

The Saints have ruled RB Alvin Kamara OUT for this morning's game against the Vikings because of his rib injury, according to NFL Network's Stacey Dales -- who said HC Dennis Allen confirmed it. That leaves Mark Ingram as the backfield leader against a Minnesota defense that has been especially soft vs. the run.

Saints RB Alvin Kamra had the ball come his way plenty in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. But he endured a lackluster day. The RB gained 61 yards on 15 carries, handling 75% of New Orleans' RB rushing attempts. He also ranked 2nd on the team with 7 targets, but Kamara caught just 2 of them for 12 yards. Mark Ingram took the other 5 carries and saw 0 targets.

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 insider Mike Triplett believes RB Mark Ingram might "split work" with RB Tony Jones vs. the Bucs today. "Normally I’d recommend Mark Ingram as a strong fantasy play with Alvin Kamara out. But this week I think Ingram is a risky fantasy option since he was limited by his own injury all week and Saints are facing Tampa Bay’s stout run D," Triplett writes. We're still expecting Ingram to lead the backfield in snaps and touches today, but he looks like just a low-end RB3 or flex play.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (rib) is not expected to play vs. the Bucs today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets that Kamara has a "chance" to play but adds that, "it'll be tough." We'll get New Orleans' inactives around 11:30 am ET, but fantasy owners should currently plan on not having Kamara. Schefter and Rapoport both report that RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play through his questionable tag. Ingram racked up 30 carries and 15 targets across 2 games without Kamara last year, finishing as the RB10 and RB13 in half-PPR points. But the ankle and negative matchup vs. Tampa Bay add risk to his Week 2 fantasy profile.
