Ingram ran for 47 yards on 13 carries and added 30 yards on two catches during Sunday's 23-17 win over Arizona.
Ingram was integral in setting up Baltimore's touchdown late in the first half, beating the defender for a 20-yard catch to put the Ravens in the red zone. Ingram looks to have a nice role in Baltimore as the lead back with about 15 touches per game. What is worth considering is whether the value of Lamar Jackson's legs opening up running lanes for Ingram outweighs the sophomore quarterback's prolific number of carries. Up next is a matchup against an improving, but not-yet-established Chiefs defense.

Ingram is thus poised to serve as the lead back in a game the Ravens are heavily favored to win. Next up for the team's backfield touches are Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, but assuming no setbacks Sunday, Ingram (who logged 14 carries for 107 yards and two TDs on 25 snaps in Week 1's blowout win over the Dolphins) should see enough volume to produce for fantasy managers in Week 2 lineups.
Ingram (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, despite being a full practice participant Thursday and Friday.
There hasn't been any suggestion that Ingram is in real danger of missing the game, but cautious fantasy owners will want to make sure when the Ravens release their inactive list around 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Assuming he suits up, Ingram should serve as the lead back in a game the Ravens are heavily favored to win. Any reduction in workload would open up carries for Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

Ingram played well into the second half of Sunday's 59-10 win over Miami, finishing with 14 carries for 107 yards and two touchdowns. He was limited at Wednesday's practice but now appears fine for Baltimore's home opener Sunday against the Cardinals. Ingram will lose some work to Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, but there's no question the 29-year-old is the starter and the first option in a busy backfield.

We'll track Ingram's status as the week continues, but so far there's nothing to suggest that his Week 2 status is in danger. This past Sunday, in the Ravens' 59-10 win over Miami, Ingram turned his 25 snaps into 14 carries for 107 yards and two TDs. Meanwhile, Gus Edwards logged 29 snaps and 17 carries, but that's more indicative of the game flow in a blowout, and perhaps Ingram being a little banged up, than an actual depth chart change.
Ingram rushed 14 times for 107 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' 59-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He was not targeted in the passing game.
Ingram was confirmed as the clear-cut lead back heading into Week 1, and he made good on that designation with a stellar start to his Ravens career. The veteran was highly efficient on a yards-per-carry basis and capped off his rewarding fantasy line with a pair of short touchdown runs. Although the 29-year-old wasn't utilized in the passing game whatsoever Sunday, those familiar with Ingram's body of work can quickly identify this as an outlier largely driven by the atypical game conditions of the lopsided contest. Therefore, as impressive as he was on the ground versus Miami, more well-rounded performances are likely in Ingram's future. He'll look to start making good on that potential versus the Cardinals in a Week 2 home battle.
Offensive coordinator Greg Roman confirmed Wednesday that Ingram is the Ravens' starting running back heading into the team's Week 1 matchup with the Dolphins. "We'll see who has the hot hand and feel it out...Mark's our starter," Roman said of the team's backfield situation. "I think everybody is going to contribute."
The three-year, $15 million deal Ingram inked this offseason always made it a fairly safe bet that he would open the season atop the depth chart, but it's nice to hear the Ravens verify as much. While Lamar Jackson has expressed a desire for the Ravens to put more emphasis on the passing game in 2019, Baltimore is still expected to implement one of the more run-heavy attacks in the NFL this season with the speedy signal-caller running the offense. That sort of arrangement bodes well for a healthy Ingram's chances of re-emerging as a 200-carry back, even while Gus Edwards lingers as another reliable option between the tackles. The lone other back on the roster, rookie Justice Hill, offers a more dynamic alternative who also brings upside as a pass catcher, but Ingram has proven adept as a receiver in his own right and won't be collecting dust on passing downs.
Ingram wasn't spotted during warmups in advance of Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Ingram's perch atop the Ravens' running back depth chart looks secure, so the the team will look to get his backups reps over the next two preseason contests with an eye toward establishing a complementary/change-of-pace pecking order.
Ingram may handle passing downs for the Ravens, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Signed to a three-year, $15.5 million contract, Ingram is a safe bet to open the season as Baltimore's lead back, though it isn't entirely clear when he will or won't be on the field. With no obvious choice on the roster for passing downs, the Ravens could use Ingram in those situations, which in turn would free up snaps on early downs for some combination of Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Kenneth Dixon. Preseason games might provide a small hint about the workload division for Week 1.
Ingram agreed in principle Wednesday with the Ravens on a three-year, $15 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 29-year-old will head north after eight seasons in New Orleans, taking with him a career mark of 4.5 yards per carry on the heels of four consecutive seasons of 4.6 or better. Ingram might find that life is a bit more difficult without Drew Brees alongside him, but there's a lot to be said for Lamar Jackson's ability to shift defensive attention away from the Ravens' running backs. It's an excellent outcome from a fantasy perspective, as Ingram shouldn't have any trouble topping his 2018 mark of 11.5 carries per game in a backfield that otherwise consists of lesser-established options in Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon. There's little question Ingram will be the lead runner in Baltimore, and he should also have a chance to earn some playing time on passing downs.
The Ravens have emerged as the favorites to sign Ingram, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Ingram initially was optimistic about re-signing with New Orleans, but it became obvious negotiations didn't work out after the team reached an agreement Tuesday to sign Latavius Murray. The 29-year-old Ingram can focus on finding his next team, with Baltimore apparently leading the way even as some rumors connect the Ravens to Le'Veon Bell.
Ingram has already had discussions about re-signing with the Saints, Mark Inabinett of AL.com reports. "I've been talking to the Saints," Ingram said. "It's kind of like a thing where they say they want me back, I say, 'I want to be back,' it's just can we compromise on the value?"
Ingram has a good thing going in the Bayou splitting work with Alvin Kamara behind an impressive offensive line, but it's hard to argue against a 29-year-old running back prioritizing guaranteed money above all else. While his recent comments suggest there's a chance he re-signs before the start of free agency, the more likely scenario involves Ingram testing out the open market, with the option to come back to New Orleans if he's disappointed by the money offered elsewhere. Given their tight cap situation, the Saints may be inclined to bring in a rookie or a cheaper veteran to complement Kamara in the backfield, rather than paying Ingram close to market value.
Ingram rushed nine times for 31 yards and brought in both of his targets for six yards during the Saints' 26-23 overtime loss to the Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Ingram filled his usual complementary role alongside Alvin Kamara, but he wasn't able to generate much on a yards-per-touch basis. Despite the lackluster finish to his season, the veteran back was impressive once again during this past regular season, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and logging six rushing touchdowns while adding 21 receptions and another score through the air in 12 games. Given that Ingram clearly still has plenty left in the tank, the impending unrestricted free agent figures to attract plenty of interest on the open market this offseason.
Ingram rushed nine times for 53 yards and brought in both of his targets for nine yards in the Saints' 20-14 divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles on Sunday.
Ingram accomplished the majority of his ground production on a 36-yard scamper early in the fourth quarter. He otherwise found running room to be at a premium, as the Eagles' front won the war at the line of scrimmage for a substantial portion of the contest. While his final line was a modest one, Ingram will nevertheless be an integral part of the game plan once again in next Sunday's big showdown versus the Rams.
Ingram rushed for 28 yards on five carries and added 15 yards on two catches during Sunday's 33-14 loss to Carolina.
The Saints didn't have anything to play for Sunday, so the team rested Alvin Kamara and gave Ingram a light workload. He was solid with limited touches and that will, hopefully, up his confidence heading into the playoffs. The veteran back rattled off some monster games in November, but has run hot and cold -- along with the rest of the Saints' offense -- down the stretch. He maintains plenty of value as the more traditional power back in the Saints' stable to go along with Kamara's do-it-all capabilities.
Ingram is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers but may handle a lighter workload than normal, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.
The Saints clinched the NFC's No. 1 seed in the postseason with a win over Pittsburgh last week, so it's anticipated the team will rest several key starters in a mostly meaningless regular-season finale. Top back Alvin Kamara (coach's decision) is included among the Saints' seven inactives, and it's possible that Ingram will only play a few series -- if at all -- before bowing out of the contest. Rather than Ingram, third-stringer Dwayne Washington instead looks like a better candidate to pace the New Orleans backfield in offensive snaps and touches.
Ingram carried the ball 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Steelers. He also added one reception for eight yards.
Ingram led the Saints with 11 rushing attempts -- seven of which came before halftime -- but found rushing lanes difficult to come by. He averaged only 3.2 yards per carry and his longest rush was just eight yards. He salvaged his fantasy performance by finding the end zone on a one-yard rush late in the first quarter. Ingram's workload continues to fall into the range of 12 to 14 touches per game, making him largely reliant on finding the end zone to make an impact. That could change heading into the 2019 season, however, as Ingram will have the chance to test free agency.
Ingram rushed 12 times for 63 yards and caught both his targets for 11 yards in Monday night's 12-9 win over the Panthers.
Ingram's rushing total marked his most since he topped 100 yards in Weeks 10 and 11. The veteran's tally was boosted by a team-long run of 22 yards, and although Alvin Kamara finished with 67 yards and a touchdown on his 14 carries, Ingram was again rather efficient working in tandem. The bruiser will now prepare himself for Week 16's matchup with the Steelers.
Ingram rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown and brought in one of three targets for three yards in the Saints' 28-14 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Ingram's final line was nothing to write home about, but his 17-yard touchdown run with 7:26 remaining essentially sealed the win for the Saints. The veteran back hasn't topped 52 rushing yards in any of his last three games, but three of his five rushing touchdowns on the season have come within the last four contests. Ingram's role as a receiver does remain depressed, as he's failed to eclipse two receptions in seven of nine contests. He'll look to up his overall numbers against the Panthers in a Week 15 Monday night matchup.
Ingram rushed seven times for 27 yards and brought in two of three targets for one yard in the Saints' 13-10 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday.
Ingram's opportunities were notably limited, as he logged a season-low amount of carries. The eight-year veteran appeared to be surging with back-to-back 100-yard efforts in Weeks 10 and 11, but he's now netted 79 yards on 18 rushes over his last pair of contests. Ingram will look to bounce back to his prior level of production against the Buccaneers in a Week 14 divisional clash on Dec. 9.
