Again with the baseless statements. You need to really put in some work and do some research before you start spewing out all this stuff that really isn’t supported at all. Ingram was an absolute BEAST and stud early on in the season when he was leading the back field in touches. In the first 10 weeks, he had more than 20 touches 5 times. He finished as a top 6-8 RB in like 3-4 out of those weeks.
However, from week 11 on, you want to know how many times he touched the ball 20 times or more? zero. In fact, from week 12 to week 16 and including in the playoffs, he finished as an RB1 once. And that was week 15 against the jets who suck at football and he scored 2 TDs. He never even exceeded 15 carries once after week 11. So to simply look at his season total finish as an RB1 and automatically assume he will just be an every week RB1 upon return against arguably the worst rushing schedule is naive considering most of the points Ingram scored to get that RB1 finish last year was during the first half of the season. You need to consider the situation and how it has changed. Ingram is not as efficient as Kamara so he needs the volume to make up for it. In fact, from week 13 on wards (excluding 14 where Kamara got a concussion), Kamara was the one that led that backfield in touches.
You’re just assuming that Ingram will come back and have the exact same role as before. Could it happen? Sure. But you know whats another possibility? The trend from last year continues and Kamara who is clearly an absolute stud were the term regression is meaningless continues to lead the backfield in touches. Which means Ingram is seeing 12-15 touches a week. Unless you expect him to score a TD every single week, those aren’t RB 1 numbers.
I like how you completely ignored the schedule Ingram has upon return.
Lol dude. This is just embarassing now. I get it, you don’t want to admit your wrong, but to suggest this isn’t trade rape is actually a joke. I’m wrong all the time, wrote an entire thread on these forums about how wrong I was about certain things. If you can maybe come back with some facts or evidence to counter the above, I’m open to it. But otherwise, don’t think there’s any point in discussing this further if you’re just going to keep rehashing old shit.
Guys I’d rather have than Ingram ROS: Chris Thompson, Freeman, Drake. Although I wouldn’t even give bell up for any of those guys even though they’re playing a full season.
