Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Ingram’s 4.2 yards per carry last season marked an 8-year low. It lagged way behind the 5.5 yards per carry teammates J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards combined for.
  • Among 76 RBs with 50+ carries last year, Ingram ranked 70th in Elusive Rating and 75th in Pro Football Focus rushing grade.
  • He was a healthy scratch for each of the Ravens’ final 4 meaningful games last season and was released in January.
  • Ingram will turn 32 this coming December.
  • The Texans signed him to a 1-year, $2.5 million deal with just half-a-million guaranteed.
  • He joins the backfield alongside David Johnson, who agreed to a restructured 1-year, $5 million deal with $4.25 million guaranteed this offseason, and Phillip Lindsay, who signed a 1-year, $3.25 million deal with $1 million guaranteed in free agency.
  • Johnson and Lindsay easily beat Ingram in Elusive Rating and PFF rushing grade last year.
  • With Deshaun Watson’s Texans future on the ropes and WR Will Fuller gone, this could be 1 of the worst offenses in the league. The other QBs are Tyrod Taylor and rookie Davis Mills. The top 5 WRs figure to be Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Nico Collins, Keke Coutee and Chris Conley.
  • The 2020 Texans offensive line ranked 27th in both Pro Football Focus’ run-blocking grades and Football Outsiders’ adjusted line yards.
  • 3 of 5 starters return from that group: LT Laremy Tunsil, RT Tytus Howard and LG Max Scharping.
  • The Texans traded for former Patriot Marcus Cannon, who’s expected to start at RG. He opted out of the 2020 season and received middling Pro Football Focus grades the previous 2 years.
  • C Nick Martin is expected to be replaced by Justin Britt, who tore an ACL in October of 2019 and missed all of 2020.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Going on 32, Ingram looks like a guy running out of gas. Both 2020 performance and 2021 contracts say David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay are better bets for touches in the Texans’ backfield.

We’ll keep an eye on the situation this summer, but Ingram probably isn’t worth a pick in your fantasy draft.

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 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.

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.
