Toughest Running Backs in 2020 – Number 4: Mark Ingram
Mark Ingram might have turned 30 years old in December, but that didn’t stop him from capping off what was a dominant inaugural season in Baltimore. The former Heisman Trophy winner totaled 202 carries for 1,018 yards and ten touchdowns while also racking up 26 catches for 247 yards and five touchdowns.
That gave him 1,265 yards from scrimmage and 15 total touchdowns on the year. Not too shabby for a 29-year-old going on 30, which is considered ancient in the running back world.
The Ravens were very much a run first kind of offense last year and that’ll continue to be the trend in 2020. Ingram had himself a game against the Chiefs last season, carrying the rock 16 times for 103 yards and THREE trips into the end zone. He also had four catches for 32 yards in a loss at Arrowhead.
It won’t just be Ingram and Lamar Jackson in the back field this time around though, as the Ravens drafted J.K. Dobbins of Ohio State to join their explosive unit. That could make Ingram even better, as he’ll have a fire lit under him to keep his starting job.
Ingram and his Ravens get the Chiefs on their home court this time in week three.
