    Texans' Mark Ingram: Gets 20 touches in loss

    Mark Ingram rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught both of his targets for another eight in Sunday's 31-3 loss to Indianapolis.Ingram continues to see plenty of volume, having handled at least 14 carries in four of Houston's first six games. Despite the heavy workload, he hasn't found the end zone since Week 1, and Ingram's 4.1 yards per carry in this one actually marked a season high. Ingram will try to end his touchdown drought in Week 7 against the Cardinals.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Delivers empty volume

    Mark Ingram recorded 16 rushes for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.Ingram accounted for 16 of the team's 24 rushing attempts and remains the clear leader of the backfield. However, that failed to translate to fantasy production, as his longest rush of the day went for eight yards and he averaged only 2.6 yards per carry. For the season, Ingram has failed to top 41 yards on the ground in each of his last four contests heading into a Week 6 matchup against the Colts.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Backfield split continues

    Mark Ingram carried the ball six times for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Bills.Ingram led the team in attempts and yardage, though he continued to split work with David Johnson, Phillip Lindsay and Rex Burkhead. That split in workload combined with the Houston Texans' inability to move the ball offensively limited Ingram to another poor performance. Since totaling 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against Jacksonville, Ingram has combined to produce only 86 yards combined across his last three games.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Abbreviated workload in Week 3

    Mark Ingram rushed six times for 21 yards and secured his only target for minus-1 yard in the Houston Texans' 24-9 loss to the Panthers on Thursday night.Ingram's rushing yardage tally did pace the Texans on the night, but given how lackluster a game it was for the ground attack, that's faint praise. The veteran would appear to have clear possession of the lead-back role at the moment -- Phillip Lindsay logged one more carry Thursday yet averaged under 1.0 yard per tote -- but he could certainly find running room at a premium again in a Week 4 road matchup against the Bills on Sunday, Oct. 3 due to rookie quarterback Davis Mills not presenting himself as an imposing threat to a talented Buffalo defense.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Rookie QB could impact production

    Mark Ingram could face a Panthers defense geared to stop the run Week 3 after the Browns stacked the box with eight or more defenders 57.1 percent of the time against rookie quarterback Davis Mills, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.The Browns invited Mills to throw, and he completed just eight of 18 passes for 102 yards in the Week 2 loss. When Mills was on the field, Houston's ground game came to a halt, with the team gaining just 27 yards on 14 carries. As the NFL can be a copycat league, expect Ingram and fellow backs Phillip Lindsay, David Johnson and Rex Burkhead to get little room to operate against Carolina.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Works as lead back again

    Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 41 yards and secured one of two targets for minus-1 yard in the Houston Texans' 31-21 loss to the Browns on Sunday.While a Texans backfield that features three accomplished veteran backs rightfully gives fantasy managers jitters, Ingram has worked as the clear lead back over the first two games of the season. Whether that holds remains to be seen, but Ingram did outpace David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay by eight and nine carries, respectively, against Cleveland, albeit with not much production to show for it. It will be interesting to see if the workload among the trio is more evenly distributed with the quick four-day turnaround for a Week 3 interleague matchup against the Panthers on Thursday.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Easily leads backfield

    Mark Ingram had 26 carries for 85 yards and one touchdown and couldn't haul in his only target during Sunday's 37-21 win versus the Jaguars.There was some question regarding how a backfield populated by Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, David Johnson and Rex Burkhead would pan out, but the former easily handled most of the touches among the quartet (26 versus 15 combined for the last three). Ingram's efficiency was another matter, as he managed just 3.3 yards per rush. But Lindsay (3.1 YPC) and Johnson (3.3) didn't fare much better behind the Houston Texans' offensive line. If Ingram receives such volume on a weekly basis, he'll be worthwhile to start in most formats for that fact alone. If another of the group got a hot hand, though, we could see Ingram yield reps to one of Lindsay or Johnson.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Leads backfield in preseason finale

    Mark Ingram carried the ball 11 times for 44 yards in Saturday's preseason game against Tampa Bay. He also recorded one catch for three yards.Ingram entered the game on the team's second possession and logged six of his 11 carries. His performance was largely unremarkable, though he did manage a few chunk gains of 11, six and seven yards during the second quarter. Ingram figures to play a role in the team's running back picture in Week 1 against Jacksonville, though it's unclear how work will be divided between him, Phillip Lindsay and David Johnson.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Scores short TD in preseason win

    Mark Ingram carried the ball seven times for 24 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason win over the Cowboys.The veteran running back got the start for Houston and finished up the team's opening drive by scoring from two yards out, giving the Houston Texans their only offensive TD of the night. Ingram only saw action in the first quarter, but he still split snaps and touches with Phillip Lindsay and David Johnson. While the goal-line carry is promising, it came one play after Lindsay got a chance from the four-yard line. This is shaping up to be a true backfield committee during the regular season, which would put a very firm ceiling on Ingram's fantasy value.

    Texans' Mark Ingram: Looks safe for roster spot

    Mark Ingram's job appears secure, according to Aaron Reiss of The Athletic.The thinking is that Ingram would've played in the preseason opener if he were battling for a roster spot. Instead, he was a healthy scratch, while Phillip Lindsay got the start and David Johnson saw limited action. This could end up being a three-man committee, as the Houston Texans don't have much financial incentive to trade/release Johnson even if the new coaching staff doesn't view him as a viable lead ball carrier. The team's initial preseason depth chart lists both Ingram and Lindsay as starters, with Johnson a second-stringer.
