News: 6 days agoIngram recorded 16 rushes for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Spin: Ingram accounted for 16 of the team's 24 rushing attempts and remains the clear leader of the backfield. However, that failed to translate to fantasy production, as his longest rush of the day went for eight yards and he averaged only 2.6 yards per carry. For the season, Ingram has failed to top 41 yards on the ground in each of his last four contests heading into a Week 6 matchup against the Colts.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Ingram signed with Houston during the offseason after eight seasons in New Orleans and two with Baltimore. Ingram was a fantasy starter as recently as 2019 (1,265 yards and 15 TDs on 228 touches), but fell off the map in 2020, often designated as a healthy scratch down the stretch. Ingram is now 31 years old and will be more of a veteran presence than a consistent contributor in a backfield that also includes David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay. Ingram may steal the occasional touchdown, but even if injuries were to strike, it's unlikely he'd handle enough work for RB2 production. Ingram is only worth a very late draft pick.
