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 quarterback Drew Brees has been upgraded to probable for Week 4. The big question now is, how healthy is he? Despite the rotator cuff injury, Brees says his shoulder feels healthy and he believes he can make all the throws. The Saints take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
The quick return of Brees is huge for the Saints. Not only is he a strong Fantasy option, he helps all of his weapons. Luke McCown wasn't awful but he isn't gifted like Brees either. Brandin Cooks immediately jumps back into starting lineups and the rest of the WR corps is upgraded as well. Even Mark Ingram should get a Fantasy boost with defenses now having to respect the passing attack.
