2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
For the first time in his career, Ingram became Fantasy relevant. He set career highs in carries (226), rushing yards (964), touchdowns (9), catches (29), receiving yards (145) and overall touches (255). Mark did all of this in 13 games with nine starts. He missed three games early in the year due to a fractured thumb. Over his last 10 games, Ingram took 215 touches for 915 yards and six TDs. His finished 15th among running backs in PPR scoring and could have had a chance at a top-10 ranking had he played a full season. In his four-year career, Mark has missed 14 games with only 21 starts in his 50 chances. Late in 2014, he played through a shoulder injury, and he was bothered by a foot injury this June. Ingram is a former first-round draft pick with an improving skill set as the Saints actually threw the ball to him last year. Still, he averaged only 5 yards per catch. I'm torn between his upside and his injury risk. His success last season was created by volume, something he won't have this year if C.J. Spiller stays healthy. In the early draft season, Mark has an ADP of 44 as the 16th RB off the board. I sense about 225 touches for about 1,000 yards and a chance at double-digit TDs. However, his price point and risk tell me to stay away.
New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson missed an entire week of practice with an undisclosed injury. Nonetheless, the injury is believed to be minor and he is fully expected to suit up Week 1. The Saints may be relying on him as C.J. Spiller is predictably out with a knee injury. His status for the season opener is very much in question.Fantasy Analysis:
Robinson is a talented kid whose been buried on the Saints depth chart. He is an excellent handcuff given Mark Ingram and Spillers extensive injury history. And quite frankly he's better than Spiller. Spiller just so happens to have a different skill set. Robinson is a sneaky good sleeper pick. He may pay dividends if you take a late-round flier on him.
