Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Granted, he plays in a committee backfield with Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas, but Ingram has been a disappointment two years in a row. The Saints’ 2011 first-round draft selection hasn’t cracked the ranks of the top-30 fantasy running backs in either standard scoring or PPR formats. Ingram dealt with injuries during his rookie season, and inconsistency dragged down the entire New Orleans running attack in 2012. The Saints have been talking up Ingram as a 2013 breakout-season candidate, but that seems unlikely. Sproles and Thomas are still sharing backfield touches, and the Saints remain one of the most pass-oriented offenses in the NFL. Ingram is used mainly as a first- and second-down runner, and he rarely catches passes. If Ingram doesn’t score, his fantasy outing is usually a dud. Ingram is a risk/reward No. 3 fantasy running back.
