Even Though Mark Ingram Proved to be a ‘League Winning Move’ in his Debut, Buy-Low on Alvin Kamara

Some thought Mark Ingram would take a step back from his excellent 2017 campaign. Some thought Ingram would be rusty in his return. Some thought Alvin Kamara would suddenly become a three-down back and Ingram would take a backseat. Some even thought Ingram could be dealt in the offseason. And some thought drafting Mark Ingram would be a ‘League Winning Move.’ After Monday night’s 53-yard, two touchdown performance on the ground, the latter looks pretty good right now.

Ingram, last year’s RB6 in fantasy, totaled 21.30 fantasy points in his return — while Kamara was limited to 6.90 points on only six carries. Do we think Ingram is going to throttle Kamara’s value? No. Last year proved that the two can co-exist. Ingram’s debut showed that he is going to handle goal line duties and get the carries between the 20s. On the other side, even though Kamara was only held to three receptions, the thorough domination on the scoreboard made the game script flip to an Ingram-heavy attack.

If the Kamara owner in your league is a small-brained, quick conclusion maker, then you should throw him a buy-low offer for the electric running back. We all know the Saints’ defense sucks and they’ll be in a handful of shootouts this year, meaning Kamara will still get his touches and targets that could go to the house at any moment.

This game taught us that yes, drafting Ingram was a ‘League Winning Move’ and yes, you can take advantage of a short-sighted Kamara owner.
