2019 Baltimore Ravens: 3 goals for Mark Ingram
2. Have 45 receptions
Many Baltimore Ravens fans wanted their team to go after Le’Veon Bell. One reason that people cited for wanting Bell was how he would help the passing game. Ingram, who came to Baltimore at a much more reasonable price has a history of helping out in the passing game. Ingram has 228 career receptions for 1,568 yards and five touchdowns. In the 2017 season he caught 58 passes.
Ingram is by far the most proven running back on the roster and his versatility will come in handy as well. Ingram will be able to help be an all around running back the way that Ray Rice was from 2008-2013. The best friend of a young quarterback is often said to be a good running game. A running back with the receiving skills of Ingram is also a close friend to the quarterback.
Lamar Jackson is going to use Ingram as a safety valve. Ingram is capable of catching 45 receptions. Ingram will help Jackson avoid negative plays and some of the dump off passes and screens will lead to big gains. Ingram is a running back who can do everything. He can run downhill like a hammer. He can block. His most underrated skill has to be catching the football out of the backfield. His experience in New Orleans is going to bring a new component to this offense.
