Ingram intends to sign a three-year, $15 million contract with the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old will head north after eight seasons in New Orleans, boasting a career mark of 4.5 yards per carry on the heels of four consecutive seasons at 4.6 or better. Ingram might find that life is a bit more difficult without Drew Brees, but there's a lot to be said for Lamar Jackson's ability to shift defensive attention away from the running backs. It's an excellent outcome from a fantasy perspective, as Ingram shouldn't have any trouble topping his 2018 mark of 11.5 carries per game in a backfield that otherwise consists of Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon. There's little question Ingram will be the lead runner in Baltimore, and he should also have a chance to earn some playing time on passing downs.

The Ravens have emerged as the favorites to sign Ingram, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram initially was optimistic about re-signing with New Orleans, but it became obvious negotiations didn't work out after the team reached an agreement Tuesday to sign Latavius Murray. The 29-year-old Ingram can focus on finding his next team, with Baltimore apparently leading the way even as some rumors connect the Ravens to Le'Veon Bell.

Ingram has already had discussions about re-signing with the Saints, Mark Inabinett of AL.com reports. "I've been talking to the Saints," Ingram said. "It's kind of like a thing where they say they want me back, I say, 'I want to be back,' it's just can we compromise on the value?"

EDGE Analysis

Ingram has a good thing going in the Bayou splitting work with Alvin Kamara behind an impressive offensive line, but it's hard to argue against a 29-year-old running back prioritizing guaranteed money above all else. While his recent comments suggest there's a chance he re-signs before the start of free agency, the more likely scenario involves Ingram testing out the open market, with the option to come back to New Orleans if he's disappointed by the money offered elsewhere. Given their tight cap situation, the Saints may be inclined to bring in a rookie or a cheaper veteran to complement Kamara in the backfield, rather than paying Ingram close to market value.

Ingram rushed nine times for 31 yards and brought in both of his targets for six yards during the Saints' 26-23 overtime loss to the Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram filled his usual complementary role alongside Alvin Kamara, but he wasn't able to generate much on a yards-per-touch basis. Despite the lackluster finish to his season, the veteran back was impressive once again during this past regular season, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and logging six rushing touchdowns while adding 21 receptions and another score through the air in 12 games. Given that Ingram clearly still has plenty left in the tank, the impending unrestricted free agent figures to attract plenty of interest on the open market this offseason.

Ingram rushed nine times for 53 yards and brought in both of his targets for nine yards in the Saints' 20-14 divisional-round win over the Eagles on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram accomplished the majority of his ground production on a 36-yard scamper early in the fourth quarter. He otherwise found running room to be at a premium, as the Eagles' front won the war at the line of scrimmage for a substantial portion of the contest. While his final line was a modest one, Ingram will nevertheless be an integral part of the game plan once again in next Sunday's championship game showdown versus the Rams.

Ingram rushed for 28 yards on five carries and added 15 yards on two catches during Sunday's 33-14 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The Saints didn't have anything to play for Sunday, so the team rested Alvin Kamara and gave Ingram a light workload. He was solid with limited touches and that will, hopefully, up his confidence heading into the playoffs. The veteran back rattled off some monster games in November, but has run hot and cold -- along with the rest of the Saints' offense -- down the stretch. He maintains plenty of value as the more traditional power back in the Saints' stable to go along with Kamara's do-it-all capabilities.

Ingram is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers but may handle a lighter workload than normal, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Saints clinched the NFC's No. 1 seed in the postseason with a win over Pittsburgh last week, so it's anticipated the team will rest several key starters in a mostly meaningless regular-season finale. Top back Alvin Kamara (coach's decision) is included among the Saints' seven inactives, and it's possible that Ingram will only play a few series -- if at all -- before bowing out of the contest. Rather than Ingram, third-stringer Dwayne Washington instead looks like a better candidate to pace the New Orleans backfield in offensive snaps and touches.

Ingram carried the ball 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Steelers. He also added one reception for eight yards.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram led the Saints with 11 rushing attempts -- seven of which came before halftime -- but found rushing lanes difficult to come by. He averaged only 3.2 yards per carry and his longest rush was just eight yards. He salvaged his fantasy performance by finding the end zone on a one-yard rush late in the first quarter. Ingram's workload continues to fall into the range of 12 to 14 touches per game, making him largely reliant on finding the end zone to make an impact. That could change heading into the 2019 season, however, as Ingram will have the chance to test free agency.

Ingram rushed 12 times for 63 yards and caught both his targets for 11 yards in Monday night's 12-9 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram's rushing total marked his most since he topped 100 yards in Weeks 10 and 11. The veteran's tally was boosted by a team-long run of 22 yards, and although Alvin Kamara finished with 67 yards and a touchdown on his 14 carries, Ingram was again rather efficient working in tandem. The bruiser will now prepare himself for Week 16's matchup with the Steelers.

Ingram rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown and brought in one of three targets for three yards in the Saints' 28-14 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram's final line was nothing to write home about, but his 17-yard touchdown run with 7:26 remaining essentially sealed the win for the Saints. The veteran back hasn't topped 52 rushing yards in any of his last three games, but three of his five rushing touchdowns on the season have come within the last four games. Ingram's passing game role does remain depressed, as he's failed to eclipse two receptions in seven of nine contests. He'll look to up his overall numbers against the Panthers in a Week 15 Monday night matchup.
