2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Saints traded back into the first round of the 2011 draft in order to select Ingram, the top rated running back in that year’s draft. While big things were expected of him, knee and turf toe injuries limited his effectiveness as a rookie and caused him to miss six games. With just 474 rushing yards and five touchdowns, Ingram was a disappointment as he struggled to show much explosiveness. Off-season knee surgery and a crowded Saints backfield cloud his fantasy outlook for 2012. The biggest issue is whether Ingram is really as mediocre as he looked last season or whether injuries hampered his ability to show his true ability as a runner. While no one is predicting a breakout season, you could make the argument that he ranks as a worthy RB3 with upside provided he can stay healthy and become the Saints full time short yardage option, a role he shared with Pierre Thomas last season. Don’t reach for Ingram hoping he becomes a bell cow runner in the Saints explosive offense. However, he looks good as a lower end RB3 in standard scoring leagues. Knock him down further in PPR formats since he showed little ability as a pass catcher as a rookie and the Saints have one of the league’s top receiving backs in Darren Sproles.

Hightower re-joining Saints backfield     -- Fri Apr 8 11:45 am --

Handcuff material for Ingram owners
Running back Tim Hightower is re-signing with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. The two sides met last week and have agreed to initial terms on a new contract. Hightower played in eight games for New Orleans in 2016, rushing for 375 yards and four touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 129 yards. (Times Picayune)

FF Today's Take: Hightower filled in nicely for an injured Mark Ingram allowing the team to let Khiry Robinson move on in free agency. Even though Hightower is closing in on 30 years age, he spent three-plus years out of the league due to a knee injury. He'll be handcuff material for Ingram owners.
