Ingram carried 10 times for 25 yards while catching his only target for three yards during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to Minnesota. Ingram didn't find any daylight against a Vikings defense that allowed just 3.7 yards per carry during the regular season. His production certainly was aided by the fact the Saints fell behind 17-0 by halftime and likely weren't able to keep the ball on the ground as often as they might've liked. Altogether it was another unproductive performance for a running back who was among the most reliable fantasy assets for the majority of the 2017 season, and he's now been limited to 38.0 total yards per game without a touchdown in his final three outings to close the campaign (including the postseason). While this might leave a bad taste in the mouth's of fantasy owners, the Saints are set to return nearly all key cogs of its offense in 2018 and Ingram should again be primed to helm one of the league's most potent rushing attacks.
Ingram finished with nine rushes for 22 yards and caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card win over the Panthers. Ingram and partner-in-crime Alvin Kamara faced tough fronts throughout the day, but neither standout tailback could get anything going Sunday. In fact, Ingram's rushing output marked his lowest since Week 1. Coincidentally, that performance came against the Vikings, which Ingram will face next Sunday in the divisional round.
Ingram gained 35 yards on 13 carries and 19 yards on four receptions in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. Ingram led the Saints in carries, but Alvin Kamara had the big game, netting 283 total yards and two scores in Tampa. Ingram has only had between 11 and 14 carries each of the last seven weeks, but he's been a solid contributor in the passing game, hauling in 27 passes in that same span. While the dynamic Kamara will continue to be heavily involved in the offense, Ingram remains the best bet to lead the Saints running backs in touches when the team hosts the Panthers in next Sunday's playoff game.
Ingram carried 13 times for 44 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. He also caught all three targets for an additional 22 yards in the 23-13 win. Ingram broke loose for a 26-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he mustered just 18 yards on his other 12 carries combined. The touchdown was his 12th in the last 11 games, and he now has at least 62 scrimmage yards in all but one contest this season. Despite working in a timeshare with Alvin Kamara -- who logged 12 carries for 32 yards and caught seven passes for 58 yards Week 16 -- Ingram's remarkable consistency has made him a premier fantasy option at running back and he should continue as such next week against the Buccaneers, as his team jostles for playoff positioning.
Ingram ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and added 77 yards on five catches during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets. Ingram could have ended Sunday's contest with a crisp 101 total yards and a touchdown, but he sliced through the Jets defense in the closing moments for an exclamation point -- a 50-yard touchdown run. It was his second play of the day that went for at least 50 yards. The Saints have thrived on the versatility that both Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara have brought to the running and passing games. If anything, Kamara's emergence has helped keep Ingram fresh. The veteran back has topped at least 90 total yards in five of his last six games as compared to thrice in his first eight games of the year.
