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.

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 HC Dennis Allen said RB Alvin Kamara was dealing with a rib issue in Sunday's opener vs. the Falcons. That helps explain Kamara's disappointing usage and production in that one. "I think he’s going to be fine," Allen said. We'll need to keep an eye on Kamara this week, but it sounds like he has a chance to play vs. the Bucs on Sunday. RB Mark Ingram would be the beneficiary if Kamara is out or limited.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara posted just 39 yards on 9 carries in Sunday's win over the Falcons, plus a mere 7 yards on 3 receptions. New Orleans fell behind 16-7 and 26-10 in this contest, which likely didn't help the rushing volume. And the pass offense struggled for much of the game. New Orleans ran just 21 offensive plays in the 1st half vs. 36 for Atlanta. The Saints got better on that front after the break but were also playing catchup. It was a frustrating start for Kamara, but not particularly worrisome. He still beat Mark Ingram 9-4 in carries and 4-1 in targets. And although Taysom Hill stole the team's lone rushing TD, he garnered just 5 offensive opportunities.

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.

The Saints have signed veteran RB Malcolm Brown. The former Ram and Dolphin spent last year in Miami, posting 33 carries for 125 yards and 1 score (7 games). He figures to slot in no higher than RB3 behind Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. Even if Kamara is suspended for 4-6 games, Brown can be left alone in fantasy drafts.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. That should open up more work for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Falcons. He didn’t practice on Thursday and Friday, so we’re not expecting him to play. We’ll get New Orleans’ inactives around 3 pm ET on Sunday. Ingram’s absence would mean a few more touches for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. Tony Jones will step in as New Orleans’ #2 RB – but RB Alvin Kamara should get a volume boost with Ingram out.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Panthers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that RB Tony Jones "should assume his snaps," but we'd expect RB Alvin Kamara to get more touches with Ingram out. Kamara racked up 27 carries and 5 targets when Ingram missed Week 14's game vs. the Jets.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers after being downgraded to limited participation in Thursday and Friday's practices. Ingram isn't a fantasy option, but his absence would be a boost for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints QB Taysom Hill has been placed on the COVID list. He's joined by QB Trevor Siemian. That leaves 4th-round rookie QB Ian Book to make his 1st career start vs. the Dolphins on Monday Night Football. The Notre Dame product was a mediocre college passer, leaving school with a 63.8% completion rate, 7.8 yards per attempt and 72 TDs vs. 20 INTs. He did run for 1,517 yards and 17 TDs over 4 college seasons -- and then ran a 4.65-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. Book goes just 6'0 and 211 pounds, though, so he's no Taysom Hill. Book is only in play for DFS showdown contests. Expect a heavy dose of RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram on Monday night.

Saints RB Mark Ingram is active for tonight’s game vs. the Bucs. He came off the COVID list on Friday. Ingram figures to mix in for a handful of touches behind Alvin Kamara but isn’t a viable fantasy play.

Saints RB Mark Ingram was activated from the COVID list and practiced on Friday. He should play vs. the Bucs on Sunday night, providing a change of pace behind RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. HC Sean Payton said Friday that Kamara was “real close” to playing last week, and that it was actually a hamstring issue that kept Kamara out. RBs Mark Ingram and Ty Montgomery are on the COVID list and are likely to miss Sunday’s game, so Kamara should be in for a heavy workload against the league’s 32nd-ranked RB defense.

Saints RB Mark Ingram has landed on the COVID list. He's reportedly vaccinated, giving him an outside shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Ingram wasn't much of a fantasy option with RB Alvin Kamara slated to return from his knee injury. But his absence might mean a few extra touches for Kamara.

Saints RB Tony Jones is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Cowboys. Mark Ingram will operate as New Orleans' lead back, with Ty Montgomery in a change-of-pace role.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kamara got in 3 limited practices this week, so we're tentatively expecting him to return for Week 14. RB Mark Ingram (knee) put in a full week of practice and will be back in the lead role tonight. He averaged 15 carries and 7.5 targets across Weeks 10 and 11, although we'd expect that target volume to take a hit with QB Taysom Hill under center. New Orleans will also be without starting OTs Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk.
