|The teamís decision to resign Ingram makes Khiry Robinson nothing more than a handcuffing option heading into the 2015 season. Additionally, the addition of Spiller to the offense will limit Robinsonís touches, even if Ingram is forced to miss any action. Still, he proved he can be an asset to the rushing attack after averaging 4.8 yards per carry on 76 rushes in 2014.The team will likely view him as a better between-the-tackles runner than Spiller, effectively giving him a shot to vulture two or three touchdowns throughout the season. As one of the NFLís better young backup runners, he could draw trade interest, but chances are he will be buried on the depth chart to open 2015. As a handcuff option to Ingram, he lacks upside to make him worthy of being selected in all but the deepest of leagues or dynasty formats.
|Mark Ingram wants to be "three-down" back|
Saints RB talking up role as receiver and pass protector

|Mark Ingram has been angling to be used more as a receiver and every-down back since he arrived as a first-round draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner out of Alabama in 2011.
"I know I'm a three-down back," said Ingram. "I could do first down, second down, third down, run the ball, catch the ball, pass protect. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Coach Sean Payton said he thinks both Ingram and Khiry Robinson have become "a little more accomplished" in the passing game, which gives the offense more flexibility when they're on the field.
It's great to hear Ingram embracing what should be an expanded role this season for the Saints, and since C.J. Spiller has been far from reliable in his career thus far, it makes sense to bump Ingram up a bit on your cheatsheets.
