Mark Ingram

Week 3 – Flex – Start or Sit – Peyton Hillis, Mark Ingram, or Michael Crabtree?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | 219 Comments

Question:

Should I start or sit Peyton Hillis in week 3 @ New Orlenas? This is for my flex and my other options are Mark Ingram vs. KC or Michael Crabtree @ MIN.

Answer:

Peyton Hillis has been a disappointment for fantasy owner who likely spent a mid-round pick on him when a quality WR could have been taken such as Mike Wallace or Stevie Johnson.

The good news for Peyton Hillis this week is the Saints defense. They’ve given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs through two games this season. Jamaal Charles also tweaked his inured knee last week against the Bills. Although Charles should play this week (he’s listed as probable), the injury gives the Chiefs staff more reasons to decrease his workload while giving Hillis more carries.

Hillis saw 7 carries in week 1 and 11 carries last week. Hills may see as many as 15 carries this week. Although Hillis in week 1 was a bust against the Falcons, Hillis had a much better game in week 2 against the Bills picking up 66 yards on 11 carries and hauling in 3 receptions for 25 yards. A 6.0 YPC and 12.5 YPR average make fantasy owners happy, but he just needs to get more touches and he should have that opportunity against the Saints this week.

I don’t trust Ingram in my starting lineup since his fantasy numbers are always contingent on whether he gets any goalline opportunities for the Saints. Without the goalline opportunities, he won’t put up any big numbers and his statline may come in at 15 carries for 60 yards on a good day. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles also put a big dent in his touches.

Michael Crabtree …

Week 13 – WR/RB – A.J. Green or Mike Wallace? C.J. Spiller or Mark Ingram?

Posted by in NFL Week 13 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 12th, 2011 | 221 Comments

Question: I need some advice for week 13. I need to start three players out of the following.

WR:
Laurent Robinson @ ARI (Miles Austin might be back this game)
A.J. Green @ PIT
Mike Wallace vs. CIN

RB:
Rashard Mendenhall vs. CIN
Ryan Mathews @ JAX
C.J. Spiller vs. TEN
Mark Ingram vs. DET

Pick 3 and tell me why!

Answer:

Ryan Mathews – San Diego is due for a win and the Jaguars fired their head coach and are using their defensive coach as a stand-in. Their lackluster offense should be an even bigger mess. Look for SD to pull ahead and give Matthews the go ahead late in the game to gain yards and eat clock.

C.J. Spiller- Tennessee has a staunch pass defense and Buffalo will likely use Spiller’s big play ability out of the backfield as a check down/screen player. With Jackson out, he’ll be getting all of Buffalo’s carries.

Laurent Robinson – Even if Austin returns, Arizona is awful against the pass and Laurent Robinson has a touchdown catch in five games and seven touchdowns over the previous five games. They won’t be benching him at this pace. Miles Austin may take him out of a few plays, but Robinson should still see plenty of playing time.
