It is fitting that Mark Ingram is finally healthy for the first time since college and he’ll be donning his old No. 22 instead of No. 28 this season.
Mark Ingram has changed his jersey number from No. 28 to No. 22 #Saints — New Orleans Saints (@Saints) March 19, 2013It is too early to call Ingram a bust after just two injury-plagued seasons, but dynasty owners are the ones carrying the torches and pitchforks on that proclamation. Just note his rookie ADP from 2011. Yes, I would bet most people would rather have A.J. Green or Julio Jones in a do-over of the first overall rookie pick. At least my rankings in 2011 went A.J. Green, Julio Jones then Mark Ingram – so I don’t have that much egg on my face. We’ve already made a strong case for Ingram as a one of our 10 redraft targets in 2013, but I’m going to dig in a little deeper into his usage numbers and see if there is any merit to the training camp buzz surrounding him.
