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 (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week. Kamara seems more likely than not to return for this one, but you'll need to check back around 7 pm ET on Thursday to see if he's active. Kamara will come with more risk than usual in fantasy lineups if he does suit up. RB Mark Ingram (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report and will be available tomorrow night.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) returned to a limited practice on Monday. It gives him a shot to return for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. RB Mark Ingram (knee) was a full participant on Monday, so he should be available for the Dallas game. We'll get another update on this backfield tomorrow.

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.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) "has a chance" to play vs. the Bills tonight but adds, "it's a bit of an uphill battle to play, but no one has ruled him out." It sounds like Ingram might be a bit worse than 50/50 to play tonight. If he joins RB Alvin Kamara on the inactive list, New Orleans will be down to Tony Jones as lead back. Jones would be a borderline RB2 in that scenario.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. He didn't practice all week. RB Mark Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable after putting in limited practices on Monday and Wednesday. We'll look for updates on his status and get New Orleans' inactives around 7 pm ET on Thursday. If Ingram can't go, Tony Jones would step in as the Saints' lead back.

Saints RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram missed Tuesday's practice with knee injuries. Kamara seems like a long shot to make it back for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. Ingram's status is less clear. The veteran might just be getting some time off on the short week, but check back tomorrow for another update. Insider Nick Underhill says RB Tony Jones would "carry the load" if Kamara and Ingram are out Thursday. Jones is a fine speculative pickup tonight.

Saints RB Tony Jones (ankle) has been activated from IR. He figures to serve as the #2 RB behind Mark Ingram vs. the Eagles on Sunday. Jones isn't a fantasy option; Ingram remains a solid RB2 play.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles. He was limited on Wednesday before missing Thursday and Friday’s practices, so it looks like he suffered a setback. Kamara’s absence again leaves Mark Ingram as New Orleans’ lead back. He handled 14 carries and 7 targets on an 85% snap rate last week. That’s RB1 usage, but it’s worth noting that the Saints will be without both LT Terron Armstead and RT Ryan Ramczyk on Sunday.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) did not practice on Thursday. That followed a limited practice on Wednesday. Kamara either got the day off or suffered a setback on Wednesday. We'll see if he practices on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report. Mark Ingram should be rostered in all fantasy leagues as a strong RB2 if Kamara misses this weekend's game vs. the Eagles.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He presumably has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on him over the next couple of days.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. He’s reportedly dealing with a minor sprain to that knee, so we’ll see if he can make it back for Week 11. His absence this weekend leaves Mark Ingram as New Orleans’ lead back. He’s likely looking at 15-20 touches, putting him in the RB2 conversation.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. Insider Nick Underhill now considers him "doubtful" to play vs. the Titans on Sunday. "Kamara could get healthy by Sunday and play without practicing this week, but it seems unlikely from what I'm hearing that that's gonna be the outcome," Underhill adds. We'll get another update on Kamara tomorrow, but fantasy owners should be planning to be without him in Week 10. Kamara's absence would leave Mark Ingram as New Orleans' lead back -- and a solid RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a knee. Insider Nick Underhill calls Kamara's injury a "minor sprain." Added Underhill, "It's not a major situation. It sounds like it's something that's more day to day. But it does threaten his status for this week against the Tennessee Titans." We'll see if Kamara is able to get on the practice field tomorrow. If he can't play on Sunday, Mark Ingram would step in as New Orleans' lead back.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the new ankle injury for Saints WR Michael Thomas will keep him out for the rest of the season. New Orleans reportedly tried to trade for receiving help before Tuesday's deadline but couldn't get anything done. That leaves Marquez Callaway, Tre'Quan Smith and Deonte Harris as the top WRs for QB Taysom Hill going forward. Expect New Orleans to also lean heavily on Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram -- both in the run game and as pass-catchers (well, Kamara, at least, on that front).

The Saints acquired RB Mark Ingram from the Texans. Ingram, of course, spent the first 8 years of his career in New Orleans. He'll return as RB Alvin Kamara's backup and just a handcuff in fantasy football. Ingram only figures to siphon a few carries per game from Kamara. Ingram led Houston with 92 carries through 7 games, so his departure leaves behind a decent amount of work for RBs David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay. We'll see exactly how the workload is divvied going forward, but you'll still be better off avoiding the Texans backfield.
