News: Ingram rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries, adding one reception for 10 yards on two targets, in Thursday's 28-10 win over the Panthers. Impact: With Pierre Thomas (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) both out, Ingram took on a large workload, while Travaris Cadet contributed just two carries and three catches. Ingram has been surprisingly tough to bring down this season, and although the hard running continued into Thursday's game, his 3.3 yards per carry was disappointing against a vulnerable Carolina defense. Of course, fantasy owners won't be complaining, as Ingram has three touchdowns and 272 rushing yards over his last two games. He'll lose some touches to Robinson and Thomas once they get healthy, but Ingram seems to be locked in as the top guy for carries. Week 10 brings a difficult home matchup against the 4th-ranked San Francisco run defense.(RotoWire, )

News: With Pierre Thomas ruled out and Khiry Robinson listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Ingram could be in for another big workload. In Sunday night's rout of the Packers, Ingram received 54 of the Saints' 68 offensive snaps (79 percent). Impact: While he hasn't yet been ruled out, Robinson's status for the tilt in Carolina looks shaky, at best, as he was unable to practice at all Tuesday, after missing the game against Green Bay. Ingram ran all over the Packers' shoddy run defense Sunday, rushing for a career-high 172 yards, including a 21-yard touchdown run that put the nail in the Packers' proverbial coffin. While the strength of the Panthers' defense last season was their ability to stop the run, they rank 31st in the league in defending the rush this season, so Ingram has another great opportunity to post big fantasy numbers, particularly with a number of top running backs on bye.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram shredded Green Bay for 172 yards and a touchdown Sunday night. Impact: Ingram exploded Sunday for the best game of his career. He now has four TDs and 331 yards rushing this season.(STATS, 11:45am)
Oct 26, 2014
News: Ingram rushed for 172 yards with a touchdown on 24 carries and caught one pass on two targets for three yards in Sunday's 44-23 win over the Packers. Impact: With Pierre Thomas (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) sidelined, Ingram got 24 of the 25 carries that went to a non-fullback running back. Travaris Cadet caught four passes for 40 yards, while handling most of the work on passing downs, but Ingram dominated the carries all night, topping things off with nine totes for 64 yards and a touchdown (from 21 yards out) in the final quarter. He didn't have any runs longer than 28 yards, yet still piled up an impressive 7.2 yards per carry, picking up a number of first downs along the way. After making the best of a favorable matchup, Ingram may get another chance to dominate the carries, as the Saints have just three days off before facing the Panthers in Carolina on Thursday. Thomas is expected to miss at least one more game, while Robinson's potential availability is a bit more uncertain.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram is expected to see a heavy workload Sunday night, as both Pierre Thomas (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) are expected to miss the Week 8 contest against the Packers, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Impact: While Ingram was unlikely to benefit much from Thomas' absence, as it was expected that Travaris Cadet would inherit Thomas's pass-catching duties, the absence of Robinson is another story. Edwin Baker is on the practice squad and could be activated if the Saints choose to make a roster move before the game, but at this point it appears that Ingram will see the vast majority of the carries out of the Saints' backfield -- with Cadet the primary receiver -- against Green Bay's 31st-ranked rush defense.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram had trouble against a stout Lions defense in his return from a hand injury, Sunday's 24-23 loss in Detroit. Impact: Ingram had 16 yards on 10 carries but was facing the second-best run defense in the NFL (73.4 yards per game). He has his Saints teammates will get to face the second-worst rushing defense in Green Bay this upcoming weekend. The Packers are allowing 147.9 yards per game on the ground.(STATS, 3:50pm)
Oct 19, 2014
News: Ingram (hand) had 10 carries for 16 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 13 receiving yards Sunday against the Lions. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, he played 25 snaps in his return from injury, while Pierre Thomas (27 snaps), Travaris Cadet (20 snaps) and Khiry Robinson (5 snaps) all saw playing time out of the backfield. Impact: Ingram had not played since suffering the hand injury in Week 2 against the Browns, and while he led the Saints in carries, playing time was split fairly evenly among the running backs. It was also a tough matchup to which to return, as the Lions came into the game allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season. A committee approach will likely continue into Week 8 as Ingram continues to get up to speed after missing three games, but he will at least have a softer opponent, as the Saints will face off against a Packers defense ranked dead last in rushing yards allowed per game.(RotoWire, )
Oct 19, 2014
News: Ingram (hand) is listed as active Sunday at Detroit, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports. Impact: As he embarks upon his first game action since Week 2, Ingram will share the backfield with Pierre Thomas (illness) and Khiry Robinson, the latter of which fared well in his stead. During Ingram's three absences, Robinson racked up 47 carries for 245 yards, good for 5.2 YPC, but his lack of prowess in the passing attack lends credence to Ingram taking on a larger role sooner rather than later.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 17, 2014
News: Ingram (hand) is probable for Sunday's game against Detroit. Impact: Ingram is ready to return to the Saints backfield, and he's arguably the team's top option after starting the year strong with 143 yards and three touchdowns on just 24 carries (6.0 YPC). Fellow power back Khiry Robinson ran strong in Ingram's absence, however, and it might be difficult for Ingram to push him out the door. Still, Ingram should be able to establish a more reliable presence in the offense since he has more of a pass-catching background than Robinson.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 16, 2014
News: Ingram (hand) was a full participant in practice Thursday, the Saints' official site reports. Impact: That's back-to-back days of full practice for Ingram, with no reported problems. He seems poised to return Sunday against Detroit, though the Saints will have some decisions to make with regards to how they divvy up the snaps between Ingram, Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 16, 2014
News: Practicing without limitations on Wednesday, Ingram looked ready to return to a New Orleans offense that once again ranks among the NFL's best when the Saints play at Detroit on Sunday. Impact: Ingram said he could play with "a little pad" on the hand he broke in Week 2 at Cleveland. The running back needed surgery and missed three games before New Orleans had last weekend off.(STATS, 00:23am)
