Saints RB Mark Ingram looking good in camp

The Saints' running attack is going to consist of at least three players when the season opens. But according to a couple of sources, Mark Ingram @MarkIngram22 is performing like he wants to be the top dog.
Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune wrote Monday that Ingram appeared "strong, fast and fluid" in practice.
"If this were Ingram's first summer with the Saints, the buzz would probably be through the roof by now," Triplett wrote.
ESPN's NFC South blogger, Pat Yasinskas, said Tuesday that he's "got a feeling" that Ingram's role will increase and that he will be the "focal point" of the team's ground game.

Fantasy Analysis:

I just can't buy in. Triplett and Yasinskas point out the reason why there isn't more buzz around Ingram right now: His first two seasons were a disappointment due to injuries and poor play. I know Ingram will probably get more carries than Darren Sproles @DarrenSproles and Pierre Thomas @Pierre_Thomas, but I have no faith that he'll do anything special with them, because I think he is a very average player. He's a mid-round choice, but there are other RBs in that range I'd rather own.
