New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is coming off of his best game of the season, racking up 162 yards from scrimmage with one touchdown in Week 10 against the Bengals. He will now go up against an Eagles defense in Week 11 that is allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. But the Eagles have had difficulty stopping the run recently and have allowed four different running backs to post 10-plus fantasy points against them since Week 6. Ingram has to compete with superstar Alvin Kamara for touches but the high-powered Saints offense has room for both to produce. Ingram already has 405 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns in five games played this season and will have RB2/3 appeal in an offense that loves featuring a two-headed monster in the backfield.
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram carried the ball 13 times for 104 yards, including 58 receiving yards and one touchdown in the Saints win over the Bengals. Ingram enjoyed his best game of the season as the two-headed monster of Ingram and Kamara combined for 264 yards. Ingram's fantasy value will continue to be a bit volatile on a week-to-week basis but the Saints offense is so potent that Ingram should be in line for plenty of red zone opportunities moving forward even with Kamara in the backfield.
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram will be tough to trust in fantasy lineups despite a favorable matchup in Week 10. Ingram and Co. will go up against a Bengals defense that is allowing the sixth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. But Ingram's touches have been capped at about 10-15 per game due to teammate Alvin Kamara becoming one of the best offensive players in the game. Ingram could steal a red-zone touchdown from Kamara but there is plenty of risk there for fantasy owners. Ingram is a touchdown-dependent fantasy option for Week 10.
