Saints RB Mark Ingram played through toe and knee injuries against the Bucs and saw just 8 touches (7 carries, 1 catch). Tim Hightower, meanwhile, matched him in targets (2) and saw just 1 fewer rush (6). Ingram managed just 14 yards on the ground and 9 more through the air. In such a messy backfield — and with the Saints offense in a funk — Ingram will be tough to sell as even an RB2 vs. Arizona.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He put in a full week of practice, so expect him to play his usual role today. Ingram is a solid RB2.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He put in a full week of practice, though, and HC John Harbaugh confirmed Friday that Ingram will play vs. Arizona. He's a nice RB2 with the Ravens 13-point home favorites.

Ryan Mink of the Ravens' website calls RB Mark Ingram the team's "clear featured back." That's been our presumption all offseason, despite the addition of rookie Justice Hill and the returns of Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon. Baltimore inked Ingram to a 3-year, $15 million deal this offseason after he had another strong year in New Orleans. Ingram averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 2018, his 4th straight season at 4.6 or better. He ranked 14th among 47 RBs in yards after contact per attempt and 20th in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating, which measures a runner's effectiveness beyond the blocking he receives. Atop the depth chart for the run-heavy Ravens, Ingram has a shot to best his current career-high of 230 carries this season. He's a fine value at his mid-4th-round ADP.

The Ravens have signed RB Mark Ingram to a 3-year, $15 million deal. Ingram is 29 now but has remained effective. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry last year and ranked 15th among 66 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating, which measures a RB's effectiveness beyond the blocking he receives. Ingram's new supporting cast obviously isn't as good as it was in New Orleans, but his fantasy stock gets a significant boost with this move. After averaging just 11.5 carries per game last year, Ingram could see 15+ per game in Baltimore's run-heavy attack. Gus Edwards averaged 16.3 over the final 8 contests last year.

Saints RB Mark Ingram has been suspended 4 games for violating the NFL’s PED policy. Entering a contract year, Ingram now won’t debut until Week 5 vs. Washington. Alvin Kamara’s clearly the winner here, but we’ll see how much more of a rushing role the Saints hand him. As a rookie, he tallied 81 catches but never topped 12 carries in a game. Either way, he’ll bring a ton of upside in all formats. Meanwhile, Jonathan Williams projects as the new #2, although he’ll surely face competition. New Orleans spent a 6th rounder on Louisiana Tech RB Boston Scott.
