Mark Ingram rushed 10 times for 29 yards in the Ravens' Week 1 win over the Browns.

Ingram led the Ravens in carries but only saw 32% of the team's rushes. Rookie J.K. Dobbins stole seven carries and ran as the goal line back, punching in two scores within the Browns' five. Ingram finished the 2019 season with 40 red zone rushes and 15 within his opponent's five-yard-line. If he continues to give that role to Dobbins, Ingram's fantasy upside will be severely hindered. He scored 15 times in as many weeks last year. The Ravens face Houston next week in a game that should tell us a lot about the rushing split in Baltimore. Ingram is still an RB2 for now.

Hello old friend.

I'm glad that Ingram decided to stop ####### Payton's wife the year I finally decided to draft him. 

Starting him. Never even had a second thought about it... still don't.

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 55 yards and one score, hauling in two catches for 33 yards in Baltimore's Week 2 trouncing of Houston.

Ingram was out-carried by Gus Edwards 10 to 9 but still made one of his attempts count with a 29-yard touchdown dash up the middle on 4th-and-1 in the fourth quarter. Currently averaging 9.5 carries per game through Baltimore's first two contests, fantasy players should expect that number to increase the moment the Ravens face tougher competition. He'll be a matchup-based RB3 in Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 30 yards in the Ravens' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

He failed to catch his lone target in the pass game. Ingram led the Ravens' running back trio with his seven carries, but none of the three were able to get going against a Chiefs defense that dominated the line of scrimmage. Ingram has single-digit carries the last two weeks. He's as touchdown-dependent as ever in a Ravens offense that has four ball-carriers. Ingram will be worth firing up in fantasy for Week 4 against the lowly Washington squad.

He is now a serious potential pothole in your line up, not sure you even want to be playing him on Bye Weeks when those start soon. 

The only shining light in this could be that as the weather starts to shift and we get into November that it would seem logical they will use him more but at the same time he just doesn't feel like a big part of the offense right now.

Yeah.   Their offense was mostly junk last night though

It's a shame but they refuse to give him enough work to justify starting him. Barring an injury (or 2) he's on the bench.

The Ravens don’t need to give him more work.  Dobbins looks good and figures to gather more touches as the season progresses. Edwards looked good against the Chiefs, even slightly better than Ingram.   Injury is the only way the RBBC goes down to a two man committee allowing any of the backs to be started with confidence.   I’m in a 10 team league with short benches, and plan to try to move on from Ingram.

I think Ingram is their best overall RB and I'd argue that last week showed they need to give their RBs more touches in general but I agree, this backfield sucks for fantasy and isn't likely to change anytime soon.

The only way you're going to move on from Ingram in a league like that is to drop him, no one will (or should) give up anything for him.

The Ravens haven't really played a competitive game yet. I am waiting for a more normal game script before I give up.

This is how I feel as well.  Lamar has come down to earth a bit, and looked super frustrated Monday.......Harbaugh is a good coach though, and they have the personnel to pound the rock.  And Lamar will be better.  I'd bet on Ingram having some solid games in coming weeks.

I've seen nothing from Ingram this year.  Maybe he is rounding into game shape, I dunno.  But his production doesn't warrant more work.  Isn't passing the eye test either.

Sadly, I fully agree with you. RB is typically a young-man's game... I must be using the same eye test as you because the other RBs look fresher to me as well.

At best, maybe they want to save as much of Ingram as they can for the play-offs?

I don't like what I am hearing from Ravens players this year. They seem singularly focused on KCC where as they should be worried that they're a game behind PIT in their own division.

Well if you blinked you missed it, only 26 carries and 2 receptions in 3 games, but he's been fine (4.4 ypc and 11 ypr). Looks fine to me with his limited touches, so do the other RBs, but they simply haven't been using any of them enough.

agree he looks fine to me as well. Not sure what others are seeing that they don't like but Im not jumping ship yet. Lets see what the next 2-3 weeks have in store but he may bounce back this weekend

One way to slice it, yes. I see 2-1 in 2020, 2nd place in Division, and 2 straight stinkers from last years dominating MVP. So far they look like a team that expected to skate right through to the AFCC game... and maybe they will, but if they trip up and find themselves 2 games behind PIT at the BYE? Gonna have to really sharpen those skates.

Again, Jackson is my QB... I want to be so wrong about this. But bad time to have two consecutive games that are both worse than his lowest game in 2019. Hoping he knocks it out of the park going forward. I can't have Gostkowski bail him  out every week 😆

Mark Ingram rushed eight rimes for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 4 win against the Football Team. 

Ingram was out-rushed by Gus Edwards, saving his fantasy day with a short touchdown. Ingram is a weekly touchdown-or-bust fantasy option going forward. Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman wasn't kidding when he said in August that the team would use a running back rotation that would change by the game.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) won't return against the Eagles. 

Ravens trainer wrapped Ingram's ankle after an early first quarter injury. Ingram returned in the second quarter and handled two carries. He ends his day with five rushes for 20 yards in Week 6. If Ingram misses time, J.K. Dobbins would be the most likely beneficiary, though Gus Edwards would see short yardage and perhaps goal line work.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Mark Ingram (ankle) has a "chance" to play in Week 8 against the Steelers.

Ravens won't return until after their bye in Week 8, but it sounds like the extended break may not be enough for Ingram to recover. Fantasy players should add Gus Edwards, who out-snapped J.K. Dobbins 32 to 30 on Sunday, in advance of Baltimore's next contest against Pittsburgh. Ingram's participation in the practices leading up to kick-off will be worth monitoring.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Mark Ingram has been diagnosed with a "mid- to high-ankle sprain," but that it "isn't considered severe." 

In other words, he has a high-ankle sprain but the Ravens are hoping he can play through it when they return from their Week 7 bye. Coach John Harbaugh has already said Ingram will "probably" suit up vs. the Steelers. Whether he plays or not, the last thing Ingram needed was something to further limit his effectiveness as he struggles to break free from the three-man rotation in the Ravens' backfield. Ingram is an increasingly tenuous hold in 12-man leagues. He is averaging nine touches and has two total touchdowns. Disappointingly for fantasy managers, it has been Gus Edwards next in line for carries, and not rookie J.K. Dobbins.

Mark Ingram (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Ingram is dealing with sprained ankle and had the bye week to rest up, but he still doesn't seem ready to play this week against the Steelers. If Ingram sits, Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins should form a two-man committee, though we wouldn't put it past the Ravens to get Justice Hill involved in some capacity.

Mark Ingram (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice. 

Back-to-back DNPs coming off a bye week put Ingram's odds of suiting up against the Steelers at close to zero. That will likely leave Gus Edwards to lead the Ravens' backfield after he out-carried J.K. Dobbins 30-15 from Weeks 4-6. Of course, more Dobbins involvement would be a classic bye week adjustment. It just can't be assumed. Justice Hill should also mix in for some passing-down work vs. Pittsburgh.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Steelers. 

Ingram had almost no chance to suit up against Pittsburgh after missing practice all week with an ankle injury he suffered before the team's Week 7 bye week. The Ravens committing to explosive rookie J.K. Dobbins coming off the bye would make some sense, but fantasy players should be aware Dobbins had played well behind Gus Edwards of late. From Week 4-6, Edwards out-carried Dobbins 30 to 15. Dobbins leads all Baltimore backs with 14 targets on the season. Both Edwards and Dobbins are RB3 candidates with a wide range of outcomes for Week 8.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) could miss Week 9 with a "more of a high-ankle sprain than a low-ankle sprain."

Ingram's injury wasn't initially believed to be serious but he's now at risk of missing Week 9. He has topped out at 11 carries in a single game and has just three catches on the year. Ingram is now a committee-back looking at a multi-week ankle injury. It continues to be difficult for fantasy managers to justify holding onto him. A breakout performance from rookie J.K. Dobbins could be the final nail in the coffin for Ingram's fantasy value.

Ravens declared RB Mark Ingram (ankle), QB Trace McSorley, OL Ben Bredeson, OL Trystan Colon-Castillo, DT Broderick Washington, DT Justin Ellis, and DE Jihad Ward inactive for Week 8 against the Steelers. 

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said today that Ingram could also miss next week's game. Ingram sidelined means bigger roles for both J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. We could see Edwards get most of the early down involvement against Pittsburgh while Dobbins takes on the passing down role, unless the Ravens used their bye week to hammer out a more well rounded role for Dobbins. Both Dobbins and Edwards should be regarded as low-end RB3s for Week 8.

Mark Ingram (ankle) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

In his absence last week, both J.K. Dobbins (15-113) and Gus Edwards (16-87-1) set season highs in carries while Dobbins' snap rate skyrocketed to 66%. This backfield is just so much more attractive for fantasy when it's only a two-man unit. Managers should be rooting for Ingram to miss another game.

Obviously depends on your options but he's been cuttable for quite a while. Yes, he'll likely plunge a few in here and there, but you can't have any confidence starting him.

I'm still holding only because it's a deep league with few options, but wouldn't even consider starting him at this point unless he's healthy and one of the other 2 is not.

Thinking more long term, have to figure Ingram will he cut in the off-season and they turn the keys over to Dobbins.

Can see him being signed into a RBBC, but do we think this is essentially the end of Ingram’s fantasy relevance?

I had been holding him on the end of the bench but guys like Perine and Hasty the last couple weeks had me ready to part ways and I finally did. Ingram was gobbled up on waivers this week, good luck whoever got him, I could never start him and I do mean never this season.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) did not practice Thursday. 

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec said it "appears" Ingram will miss his second straight game with the ankle injury. He won't know that for sure until Friday at the earliest. With key offensive linemen missing, the Ravens could shift to an ultra-heavy run offense, as they did in the second half last week against the Steelers. That would make J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards high-end RB3s for this week's game against the Colts. Ingram can be dropped in most 12-team leagues.

I'm trying to figure this out in a dynasty league. Need roster space and the pros to cutting bait are his age. 30 does seem like the magic number of decline unless you are AP or Frank, and I don't think I'd really want to roster them either. I also have to think he's gone from Balt next year. Tough to find a friendlier RB system than Balt., but I suppose there is a chance. 

I'm a big Ingram fan, and he's had a good run. I'm just not sure I can see anything left that's worth hanging onto him. He's kind of reminds me of TY Hilton at this point; getting older, not as productive and not able to stay on the field. Had the same decision with TY and cut him and didn't look back.

My only hesitation with Ingram at this point is positional scarcity, but when fill in guys like DeeJay Dallas and Gio Bernard can be picked up with equal if not better production it might not matter.

But those guys can't always be grabbed. My dynasty, for example, has deep benches & guys like that are rostered. You are making me think of making an offer for Ingram, but the only guys I would be willing to move for him are guys like maybe K. Cole or Renfrow or Hasty... I doubt the Ingram owner would do that

Mark Ingram (ankle) is doubtful for Week 9 against the Colts.

Ingram isn't expected to play after sitting out from practice throughout the week. J.K. Dobbins out-snapped Gus Edwards 54 to 26 against the Steelers and is fully expected to continue his surge as Baltimore's all-around back with Edwards leading in carries. As the RB14 and RB19 against the league's most nightmarish front-seven in Week 8, both Edwards and Dobbins can be trusted as high-end RB2s with standalone value in a softer matchup against the Colts. Both are tremendous plays as long as Ingram is sidelined.

MARK INGRAM RB, BALTIMORE RAVENS

Ravens declared RB Mark Ingram (ankle), LB L.J. Fort (finger), QB Trace McSorley, DE Jihad Ward, and DT Broderick Washington inactive for Week 9 against the Colts. 

Rookie J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards will continue to split the backfield workload with Ingram sidelined. Offensive line injuries and an ineffective pass game forced Baltimore to go run heavy in Week 8 against the Steelers, running the ball 47 times. Look for the Ravens to repeat that formula Sunday against the Colts. Dobbins is preferable to Edwards in PPR formats because he should continue to operate as the team's primary pass catching back.

Ingram has missed the past two games with a high-ankle sprain. Assuming he avoids setbacks, Ingram would rejoin the Ravens' three-back committee, making it a backfield to avoid. Baltimore playing on Sunday night gives Ingram a little extra time to get cleared.
