Mark Ingram fantasy outlook: Sit him.

Ingram is coming off a concussion, but it looks like he’s going to play. Still, he hasn’t put up great numbers recently, and is facing a very dangerous defensive front in the Rams.

Ingram gets most of his action up the middle, and with Aaron Donald lining up at DT there likely won’t be much space. I’m sure the Saints will try to get something going around the edges. But they’re most effective when running behind the guards and tackles. They prefer to attack the sidelines through the air.

All that said, Ingram is still the bell-cow back, and there’s a good chance the Saints will take a big lead in this one. Pair that with the possible return of LT Terron Armstead, and there’s still a chance for Ingram to have a solid game. He may be a valuable target out of the backfield. But he’s still a low-end RB2 until he can show some production.
