RB: Mark Ingram

Saints coach Sean Payton said RB Mark Ingram will "absolutely" play in Week 8 against the Bucs.

Ingram will land in New Orleans Thursday afternoon and reportedly practice with the team on Friday. Having spent eight years with the organization under Payton already, Ingram is expected to hit the ground running the moment he lands. Although Ingram won't provide fantasy value himself, he'll undoubtedly cut into Alvin Kamara's workload after the latter handled 51-of-53 backfield touches in New Orleans' last two games. Kamara remains a top-five option in fantasy circles.
