2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-12-2016 by Shawn Childs


The biggest area of concern for Ingram in 2015 was his upside in the passing game. Over 13 games in 2014, he caught 29 of his 36 targets for 145 yards, but he gained only 5.0 yards per catch. It took all of one week for Fantasy owners to see they missed out on a value RB in the passing game. In Week 1, Mark caught eight of his nine targets for 98 yards setting the tone for his value in the passing game going forward. He finished with 50 catches for 405 yards on 60 targets in his 12 games played while improving his yards per catch to 8.1. On the rushing side, Ingram gained 769 yards on 166 carries with six TDs. He gained 4.6 yard per rush, which was well over the 3.1 value by the rest of the Saints' rushing option. Unfortunately, Mark had his season end in Week 12 due to a left shoulder injury that required surgery. Ingram only had one 100 yard rushing game and two other games with more than 100 combined yards while averaging 97.8 yards per game. On the year, the Saints' RBs ran the ball 368 times for 1470 yards and 15 TDs plus 127 catches for 1064 yards and three TDs on 156 targets. Drew has missed 18 games in his five-year NFL career. He runs hard, and now he has value in three areas of the game (yards, catches, and TDs). I expect 300+ touches for 1500+ yards with a chance at double digit TDs and 65+ catches. Ingram is a steady backend RB1 with more upside if he can stay healthy.
