Status reports on big-name rookies(Predict Ingram's numbers)
 
Mark Ingram, running back, Saints. Heís gotten off to a very good start in camp and heís really the only New Orleans rookie who is not being brought along slowly. You can take that as a sign that Ingramís going to play a lot as a rookie. Heís been getting lots of first-team work in camp. Heís going to split snaps with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles. But running back usually is an easy position for rookies to pick up. If Ingram can show heís got the playbook down and can protect Drew Brees from blitzes, heís going to get a lot of playing time from the start.

Ingram predictions... what you got?

800 yards rushing 6-8 touchdowns 200 yards receiving

I agree with 1000 all-purpose yards, but I think he will get the majority of the goalline touches by the end of the season, so probably 10-12 TDs

Maverick2299 08-11-2011 02:29 PM

1011 rushing yards, 150 receiving yards, 9 Touchdowns.

I agree 800 yards rushing with about 8 TD's, but I'd up that receiving figure to about 400 yards receiving and 4 more TD's.

1,341+1 yards rushing rushing, 268+1 yards receiving, and 13+1 TDs. So he can 1/up AP across the board - except for attempts, receptions and fumbles.

Dudes - what about PT & Sproles??

500 yrds rushing
200 yrds rec

5 tds

papz 08-11-2011 07:39 PM

I'd put PT around 600 and Sproles around 300.

saintsfan1976 08-11-2011 07:42 PM

We have three different types of effective RB's.

How about 1,000 all purpose yards for each back?

papz 08-11-2011 07:46 PM

That's pretty realistic. Sproles is a lock with the return yardage. Ingram with 8/2, PT 6/4+, Sproles 3/3.

I can't seem to get a read on what we're going to do with Ivory. I don't see how he fits into the picture anymore.

Well he won't be back right away, so they'll be able to see how the running game gets going in the initial weeks of regular
season. Whatever the role, SP will probably want to go easier on Ivory 'cos he has had 2 different surgeries since last he
played - and I think I remember reading about him saying something along those lines, but can't remember where.

The most obvious role for him is to pick up the slack if someone gets hurt, but if all 3 others remain healthy it'll probably be too
crowded for Ivory. His skill-set probably best substitutes that of Ingram's minus the receiving game. Don't know about Bell's
skill-set and whether he would work as a cover for either PT or Sproles?
