News: 3 days agoIngram rushed five times for 18 yards and a touchdown but wasn't targeted in Sunday's 22-14 loss to Carolina.
Spin: Ingram returned to a complementary role with Alvin Kamara back from a rib injury, but that role still included goal-line work, which Ingram made the most of in the third quarter by getting the Saints on the board with a five-yard touchdown run. With only five touches in each of the two games in which Kamara has played this season, Ingram will likely see limited volume in Week 4 against the Vikings in London barring a setback for the lead back.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: It's not often we talk about 32-year-old running backs in fantasy, but Ingram is still hanging around. The 2011 first-round pick opened last season in Houston, but was traded back to New Orleans and appeared in four games along with Alvin Kamara. Ingram handled 28 carries (27% share) and nine targets (8%) in those weeks and was 47th in fantasy points during the span. He played two full games with Kamara out and was very effective, producing 100-plus yards and a top-15 fantasy performance both weeks. Ingram isn't a candidate for consistent fantasy production at his age, but with Kamara facing a possible suspension, he could find his way to the RB2/flex radar early in the season. For that reason only, he's worth late-round consideration in drafts.
