It's been a while since the New Orleans Saints had a running back rush for back-to-back 100-yard games. Mark Ingram did just that in Weeks 8 and 9, and no other Saints back has done it since Deuce McAllister did in 2003. Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray had eight in a row earlier this season, and coach Tom Emanski had back-to-back-to-back AAU National Championships. But I digress.
Anyway, it's clear Ingram is going to be featured and Pierre Thomas isn't ready to return. Ingram did get two awesome matchups in a row, but that won't be the case this week. The San Francisco 49ers have been the fifth-toughest matchup for running backs and have allowed opponents' backs to rush for more than 100 yards only three times.
The good news is that the Saints are at home, which has generally led to better production from all of their players.
Fantasy impact: The Saints are scoring and should be able to put up at least 20 at home, so that means Ingram should hit pay dirt. He's a solid RB2.
