Don't lose faith in Mark Ingram
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Saints running back Mark Ingram scored a touchdown Week 16 against Atlanta, plunging in from 1 yard out in the first quarter, he didn't have the most productive afternoon, rushing 13 times for 38 yards and catching three passes for 17. He's now run for less than 60 yards in three straight games, averaging 46.7 during that stretch compared to 101.3 in his previous six.

It's not like the Saints have turned to other options, though, which was Ingram's problem in previous seasons. Khiry Robinson was the only other running back to get any carries in Week 16, and he had just two. It's just that the Saints haven't been in a position to run the ball in recent weeks, losing big in both Week 14 and, of course, Week 16.

So what about Week 15? That's partly on Ingram. He got the carries, finishing with 17, and didn't do much with him.

The good news is that the Saints should be able to win handily Week 17 at Tampa Bay, which should mean plenty of garbage-time opportunities against a so-so run defense. Outside of maybe PPR leagues, you'll want to keep Ingram active in Fantasy.

Saints DST comes back down to earth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After a dominant performance on the road against the Bears in Week 15, the Saints defense looked more like itself back at home against the Falcons in Week 16, allowing 30 points on 403 yards. It had no sacks or interceptions (or takeaways of any sort) after setting season highs with seven and three against the Bears.

In standard CBSSports.com leagues, the Saints DST was worth zero points on the day. It was the second time in three weeks it was shut out in terms of Fantasy production.

The Saints DST is averaging just 5.4 Fantasy points in its last seven games -- and that's including that season-best performance against the Bears. Even with a favorable matchup Week 17 at Tampa Bay, it's a shaky option in Fantasy.

Colston, Stills, Toon combine for 192 receiving yards in Week 16
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints wideouts Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and Nick Toon combined for 192 receiving yards in a losing effort Sunday against Atlanta.

Colston led the way with a team-high six catches on 10 targets for 80 yards. Stills finished as the team's second leading receiving, posting six catches for 68 yards on eight targets. Toon cracked the 40-yard mark again with three catches for 44 yards in a 30-14 defeat.

New Orleans will end their 2014 campaign against Tampa Bay in Week 17.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham registered another 10-TD season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham become the first player in franchise history with three seasons of three-plus touchdowns during Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Graham came down with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 10 times and finished with six catches for 53 yards and a score in a 30-14 defeat. He moved into second place in franchise history with 51 career touchdown receptions.

New Orleans will face Tampa Bay in Week 17.
