Saints RB Mark Ingram: 'I've got to step up' for my teammates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints lead back Mark Ingram wants to return the favor to the backfield mates that carried the load when he missed three games with a broken hand by performing well with them out.

Ingram has been thrust back into the featured back role for Sunday night against Green Bay with injuries sidelining Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson.

"A couple guys are down, so I've got to step up and pull my weight and do my job," Ingram told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Ingram certainly pulled his weight before his injury. He rushed for 143 yards on 6.0 YPC with three touchdowns in the first two games. But he managed just 16 yards on 10 attempts at Detroit in Week 7.

Report: Saints TE Graham likely to play Sunday despite injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints prolific tight end Jimmy Graham has been deemed questionable for the Sunday night game against Green Bay with a shoulder problem, but seems likely to play after practicing on a limited basis, according to ESPN.

Graham played 30 snaps despite the physical issue in Week 7 against Detroit, but was held without a catch.

Saints rule out backs Thomas, Robinson against Packers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Running backs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) have been ruled out by the Saints for the Sunday game against Green Bay.

Their absences should mean increased work for Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet.

Give Marques Colston another whirl
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints offense is so productive that it turns out role matters more for wide receiver Marques Colston than matchup. With what seemed like a tough matchup Week 7 at Detroit, he had a season-high 111 yards on six catches after averaging just 46.0 yards in his previous three games. But, of course, he was helping pick up star tight end Jimmy Graham's slack. Graham was active but hardly a factor because of a shoulder injury.

If nothing else, Colston proved with his performance that he's still capable of being a top flight wide receiver when quarterback Drew Brees needs him to be. While Graham's role for Week 8 against Green Bay is to be determined, chances are the Saints are going to have to throw a lot against a Packers team that has hit its stride offensively, averaging 36.3 points over its last four games.

As matchups go, it's not an especially favorable one. The Packers rank sixth against the pass, giving up 214.9 yards per game, and have allowed the lowest passer rating of any team this season. But again, the Saints offense has a way of transcending matchups.

Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Colston among their top 20 wide receivers for this week, and I agree most Fantasy owners will want to stick with him.
