Saints backfield split raises some concerns
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Saints weren't able to rely on the rushing game as much as they might have preferred in Week 12, as their running backs combined for just 16 carries in a Monday night loss to the Ravens.

Mark Ingram, who had averaged 26 carries in the team's previous four games, had just 11 Monday, en route to a disappointing 27-yard showing. More alarmingly, Ingram played just 34 percent of the team's snaps in the loss, as Pierre Thomas' return cut into his playing time drastically. Thomas had just five carries, but hauled in six passes while playing 53 percent of the team's offensive snaps, as they fought their way back from a late deficit.

The Saints were within 10 points of the Ravens for much of the game, until a late touchdown put the Ravens up 14 with three minutes left. However, the Saints were clearly focused on throwing the ball for much of the game, which meant Thomas was the more useful option. That has to be concerning for Ingram's owners, who have gotten used to a healthy dose of carries.

If the Saints are up, they will likely use Ingram plenty, as he is clearly the best pure runner on the team. However, Thomas is going to get work when they want to put the ball in the air, and that might happen often on a team that ranks 25th in scoring defense. Both Thomas and Ingram will have their uses down the stretch, however, and could be low-end starting Fantasy options.
