The New Orleans Saints running back platoon had a field day against the Dallas Cowboys defense in the win on Sunday Night Football. Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 145 yards and a touchdown for a 10.4 yards per carry average. Pierre Thomas added 17 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown of his own. Not to be left out, Darren Sproles rushed five times for 12 yards and a touchdown. Additionally, Sproles was the second-leading receiver with seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. Thomas was the 5th leading receiver with seven catches for 24 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy impact: The production from the Saints platoon was absolutely incredible. Drew Brees called Ingram a "man on a mission" and he sure looked the part. The production from Sproles and Thomas is hardly surprising, but what you saw from Ingram was truly amazing. Still, it's difficult to trust one game when the overwhelming majority of his play has been largely underwhelming. Start Sproles and Thomas with ease and keep an eye on Ingram. He might be worth a bench stash in deep leagues. The Saints face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11 and they are giving up the 12th-most fantasy points to running backs.
