2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Kimra Schleicher

Mark Ingram is a former first rounder that has been riddled with injuries, evidence by his 11 missed games over his first three seasons. His play has been disappointing to say the least. The Saints have not extended his contract, so this is a make-or-break year. In 2013, Ingram had only seven receptions and a bulk of his rushing yardage came against one of the worst defenses in the NFL. He was held to under 10 carries in all but two games last season. With the emergence of Khiry Robinson (and Pierre Thomas' role being already defined), Ingram is a risky player to draft even as a flex. The backfield appears to be a full RBBC, but it is unlikely to see Ingram carving out a significant role due to his injury history and lack of receiving skills.

Latest Update

Oct-25-14 Saints RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas out for Week 8

New Orleans beat writer Mike Triplett tweeted Friday that running backs Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) will both miss Sunday night's tilt with the Green Bay Packers. With the RB tandem sidelined, the Saints will turn to Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet to shoulder the rushing load. Ingram returned from a hand injury in Week 7 and was the lead back. However, he got stuffed for only 16 yards on 10 carries against the Lions' defense. Cadet figures to fill Thomas' role as a receiving back. He's put up 15 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown over the past three games.

Fantasy Analysis:

This should be a high-scoring game. The Saints are currently a 3-point favorite. With the Packers' pass defense being much better than their run defense, you can almost bank on Ingram finding the end zone. With Robinson and Thomas out, he is a low-end RB2 option this week.

Cadet is also someone that may be worth a look this week, especially in PPR leagues. He figures to be involved in the passing game. If TE Jimmy Graham ends up missing the game or is limited in his snaps, that would also increase Cadet's value.
