Mark Ingram rushed 10 times for 28 yards in Week 13 against the Cowboys.
Ingram wasn't involved in the pass game, coming off the field for Ty Montgomery and finishing with negative yards on his only catch. The Saints featured Taysom Hill on designed runs and played from behind the entire game, leaving Ingram without much of a role. This will likely be his last week as the Saints' starter with Alvin Kamara (knee) likely returning in Week 14. With Hill at quarterback and his touches set to decline, Ingram will be no better than a low-end RB3 for Week 14 against the Jets.

Did you force the new Ingram owner to hit "accept"?.........lol.......there was NO REASON Ingram should have been this awful.Was all set to start him last night. Trade deadline was yesterday. 10 minutes before kickoff I packed him and other to the Kamara owner to acquire D. Montgomery (who has a nice playoff schedule).
Needless to say, the new Ingram owner is not at all happy with me.
Ingram is usless with Kamara healthy. They will check down to Kamara when they can but Hill running kills checkdowns. I have no interest in part time between the tackles breather backs.What's the read on the Saints' backfield strategy this week vs the Jets?
Payton had a terrible game plan last week and kept Ingram off the field way too much. Is Ingram still dealing with a nagging injury?
RBs vs Jets are basically must-starts (see Sanders last week) but if Payton could overthink this, get cute and have a horrible game plan.
True, but I haven't seen where Kamara is playing this week. Probably get an update on that later. If Kamara's still out, Ingram has at least one more week of viability.Ingram is usless with Kamara healthy. They will check down to Kamara when they can but Hill running kills checkdowns. I have no interest in part time between the tackles breather backs.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Mark Ingram (knee) is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Panthers.
Rapoport noted that Ingram made progress with injury but is unlikely to play this week. He noted that Tony Jones would assume Ingram's role. Alvin Kamara also figures to get a slight bump from Ingram's absence. Kamara remains on the RB1 borderline while Jones can be left off fantasy rosters.

Mark Ingram rushed four times for 22 yards in the Saints' Week 1 win over the Falcons, adding a one-yard reception.
Ingram also lost a "ridiculously soft" fumble, making for an inauspicious day in the Saints' comeback win on the road. Ingram was Alvin Kamara's clear-cut backup, though it was Taysom Hill who did a better job of changing the rushing pace. Frankly not an adequate No. 2 back in 2022, it will be interesting to see if Ingram ends up jumped by someone else, perhaps someone not even on the roster right now. Ingram lacks standalone value in 12-team re-draft leagues.
NewOrleans.football's Mike Triplett believes Mark Ingram (ankle) will split carries with Tony Jones in Week 2."Normally I I’d recommend Mark Ingram as a strong fantasy play with Alvin Kamara out" with a rib injury, Triplett said. "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." Ingram, Triplett said, could split the backfield workload with Tony Jones, who was miserable in spot starts last year. Ingram, 32, saw 20 targets in three 2021 starts. Continued pass-game usage could give him something of a PPR floor against Tampa. Ingram profiles as a RB3 play with Kamara sidelined.

Mark Ingram rushed five times for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Panthers.
Ingram was strictly a backup in this game but was fortunate to sub in for Alvin Kamara in the red zone. He punched in the Saints' first score of the day from five yards out. Ingram is only worth holding onto as an insurance policy on Kamara.
