Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 18 times for 73 yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts while adding two grabs for eight yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Ingram did pretty well on the ground despite the fact the Texans were routed. He still had some decent stat totals for a running back on the wrong side of a lopsided game. Still, he is nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 at Arizona.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Ingram has received at least 14 carries in three of the have games this season but has been held to 41 yards or less in each of the last four games. He likely will receive a majority of the carries against the Indianapolis Colts but can be avoided in most leagues.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 16 times for 41 yards in Week 5 against the New England Patriots and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Ingram led the backfield with 16 touches, to five (all carries) for Phillip Lindsay and seven (two carries) for David Johnson. He remains nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option, however, as averaging 2.6 yards per carry with no scores isn't going to cut the mustard. The Texans travel to meet the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed for 24 yards on six carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4.
Huddle Up: The Texans struggled on offense against the Bills, so Ingram received only a limited number of touches. He has been held to under 50 yards in reach of the last three games and should be avoided next week against the New England Patriots.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram had six carries for 21 yards in a Week 3 loss to the Carolina Panthers. He also had one reception for minus-one yard.
Huddle Up: Collectively, the Texans ground game gained 42 yards on 17 carries (2.5 YPC), which was a byproduct of Carolina targeting the running game in the belief that Jordan Mills would be unable to make them pay. For the most part, the Panthers were correct. Undoubtedly the Bills will adopt a similar approach in Week 4, making Ingram a tough sell for a spot anywhere other than your bench.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 41 yards in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns and he had one catch for minus-1 yard on two targets.
Huddle Up: It was a tough go for the Texans all around in the run game, posting just 82 yards and 2.9 yards per attempt, which is the same average for Ingram, in this 10-point loss. It's a quick around, as the Texans face the Panthers in Week 3 on Thursday. Ingram is a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues for that one.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram rushed 26 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 37-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Not only did Ingram lead the backfield in touches, but he had 15 more carries than Houston's other back combined. While it remains to be seen if he is going to continue to be a workhorse, Ingram should be scooped up wherever he is available.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram will be involved in a run-first offense with RB Phillip Lindsay and RB David Johnson. The team only has five receivers and will look to run the ball as much as they can, according to sources.
Huddle Up: This situation is a mess for fantasy purposes. They have all these names at the position, but where is the aerial attack that's going to keep defenses honest? Which back will be in the lead? It could change week to week, or it could change by the quarter. Ingram will be a flex option with more emphasis in non-PPR leagues. Lindsay will be a flex candidate in PPR leagues. Johnson and Rex Burkhead are depth right now.

Houston Texans RB Mark Ingram is in danger of not making the team after the team restructured RB David Johnson's contract and doubled his guaranteed money. Ingram will compete with RBs Phillip Lindsay and Rex Burkhead.
Posted: 6/08/2021 5:46 am GMT
Houston Texans RBs Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram are likely competing for one spot on the final roster, in the opinion of The Athletic's Aaron Reiss, who points out neither player is a special teams contributor.
Huddle Up: Lindsay and Ingram both carry some name value for their years of solid work, but neither looks to be in a great spot entering 2021 from a number of different angles, including the talent level in Houston, backfield depth and now even a lack of job security. It becomes a situation to monitor in camp as, given David Johnson's lengthy injury history, whoever emerges as RB2 in Houston could offer some late-round appeal.
