Ingram rushed 11 times for 134 yards and a touchdown while adding three catches for 21 yards on four targets in Sunday's 34-31 overtime win against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram's 36-yard rushing touchdown tied the game 10-10 late in the first quarter, and he set up Will Lutz's game-winning, 28-yard field goal in overtime with consecutive runs of 20 and 31 yards. His limited workload was due to New Orleans playing from behind for most of the game, as the team overcame a 15-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation. Fellow running back Alvin Kamara starred in that comeback, but Ingram remains the top option on the ground.

Ingram carried 21 times for 131 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 47-10 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram came through with one of the best games of his career in this one, setting a season high in rushing yardage while scoring three touchdowns in a game for the first time as a pro. This performance continued an excellent run of form for Ingram, who now has seven touchdowns and is averaging 113.8 scrimmage yards in five games since the bye. New Orleans' newfound commitment to the running game has vaulted Ingram into the upper echelon of fantasy running backs and he will look to keep it rolling next week against the Redskins.

Ingram rushed 16 times for 77 yards and brought in his sole target for two yards in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram paced the backfield in carries and rushing yardage, once again forming an ideal 1-2 punch with rookie Alvin Kamara. After losing a pair of fumbles last season, Ingram held onto the ball Sunday and has now logged 75 or more rushing yards in the four games since Adrian Peterson left town. Ingram did seen a three-game streak with at least one rushing touchdown come to an end, but he continues to be one of the most productive fantasy options at his position in any format.

Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara each saw 31 snaps, but it Kamara who closed out the victory against the Bears after Ingram fumbled on back-to-back possessions in the fourth quarter.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram had a nice statistical day, gaining 99 total yards and scoring on a one-yard touchdown plunge, but his two fourth-quarter fumbles nearly cost the Saints the game on Sunday. Following his second fumble with a little over two minutes remaining, it was Kamara, not Ingram, who was asked to try to run out the clock. Ingram doesn't have a big reputation as a fumbler -- this is the first time he has ever lost three fumbles in a season -- but it's worth noting that head coach Sean Payton benched the former Heisman Trophy winner last year after he lost the ball late in back-to-back close defeats. Ingram's benching led to a bigger role for Tim Hightower, and it took more than a month before Ingram clearly reestablished himself as the leading man. In the wake of the Adrian Peterson trade, Ingram will very likely remain a big part of the New Orleans offense moving forward, but it's worth monitoring whether Ingram's meltdown on Sunday will alter the balance of the New Orleans backfield.

Ingram rushed 18 times for 75 yards and a touchdown while catching all six of his targets for 24 yards and losing two fumbles in Sunday's 20-12 win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram watched Alvin Kamara score an eight-yard touchdown on the opening drive, but added a one-yarder of his own in the second quarter by stretching the ball over the top of the defense. While Kamara continues to mix in for a handful of touches every game, Ingram's been able to establish a much better rhythm on the ground since fellow running back Adrian Peterson was traded. After gaining just 170 yards without a touchdown on 42 carries in four games with Peterson on the roster, Ingram's exploded for 294 yards and four touchdowns on 65 carries over three contests since. Ball control was an issue for Ingram here, though, as he fumbled on consecutive fourth-quarter drives to let Chicago back into the game.

Ingram rushed 22 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers. He also brought in four of five targets for five yards.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram now has back-to-back 100-yard games since Adrian Peterson left town, as head coach Sean Payton has seemingly found a rhythm he's comfortable with in terms of backfield's division of labor. Ingram has settled in as the clear-cut early-down back, although he's also seen some third-down work due to his proficiency as a pass catcher. Meanwhile, rookie Alvin Kamara continues to be deployed in a complementary role and is being utilized as both runner and receiver with strong results. If the current pattern persists, Ingram should retain excellent fantasy value as a 20-plus-carry workhorse on the majority of weeks in an offense that forces defenses to respect the pass. He'll look to continue producing against the Bears in Week 8.

Ingram rushed for 114 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries and added 36 yards through the air on five catches in Sunday's 52-38 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Most knew that Ingram was in store for a heavier workload after Adrian Peterson skipped town, but few could expect this. It was the first time since Week 11 of the 2014 season that Ingram recorded 30 touches in a game. Ingram also scored his first two touchdowns of the season, both on short, second-quarter carries. It would be foolish to think that Ingram will continue this pace as New Orleans was in position to try to run out the clock for much of the second half and rookie Alvin Kamara, too, should see some increased work with Peterson gone. Still, Sunday showed what the multi-faceted Ingram can do with a little more opportunity.

Ingram could earn a slightly larger workload out of the Saints' backfield after New Orleans traded Adrian Peterson to Arizona on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Due to his lack of versatility out of the backfield, Peterson, who played 45 of a possible 259 offensive snaps (17.3 percent) through four weeks, was already well behind Ingram (52.5 percent) and rookie Alvin Kamara (35.1 percent) in snap share, but the 2012 NFL MVP's departure nonetheless opens up some extra work for the holdovers. The prospect of a minor uptick in touches the rest of the season should raise Ingram's fantasy ceiling a bit higher and erase any reservations his owners may have previously had about keeping him active week in and week out.

Ingram rushed 14 times for 45 yards and brought in four of eight targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Dolphins in London.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram paced the Saints backfield in carries and overall touches, garnering 18 of the latter overall. Ingram's eight targets in the passing game were certainly encouraging and helped him equal his second-best reception total through four games, while his 14 totes equaled the season high he'd established in Week 3. While the seventh-year pro's yards per carry figures have dropped in each of the last two weeks, head coach Sean Payton appears to potentially be settling on a more definitive pecking order in his backfield, one that features Ingram as the borderline workhorse back. He'll look to build on his relatively modest production thus far in Week 6 against the Lions following a Week 5 bye.

Ingram gained 56 yards on 14 carries and caught two of his four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram labored for an average of four yards per carry against a stout Carolina front, but he wound up with a respectable 86 yards from scrimmage thanks to an effective outing as a receiver. He received as many carries in this one as he did in the previous two weeks combined, though Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara combined to tote the ball 11 times. Ingram's role in the offense seems quite dependent on game flow, but he is clearly the lead back at the moment and should play a big part next week against the Dolphins.
