Mark Ingram injury update: Saints tailback still not producing fantasy value

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Ingram has been useless for much of the season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Saints running back Mark Ingram (toe) is listed as questionable to face the Patriots on Sunday. He was limited in practice all week and is shaping up to be a game-time decision.

He's been out of action since Week 2 and has been ruled out very early prior to this week. Ingram had just 1.8 yards per carry in the first two games of the season and the undefeated Saints obviously haven't missed him.

Pierre Thomas has been a little underwhelming while Ingram has been out. PT has averaged just 1.6 yards per carry in the past two weeks, but his contributions in the passing game have helped him account for some solid production. He was able to find pay dirt twice last week against the Bears, but he's lost a little bit of his luster.

Fantasy impact: Ingram is barely worth owning. It's a little hard to believe that he won the Heisman and he has yet to really get his NFL career off the ground. Pierre Thomas is a low-end flex this week in a game that could be a shootout.
