The Baltimore Ravens listed running back Mark Ingram as questionable on the injury report this week. He’s dealing with a shoulder injury. However, he was a full participant at practice both Thursday and Friday, so there’s nothing to worry about if you’re wondering about his status for what could be a very productive game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Baltimore’s offense was the league’s most explosive last week. Ingram cashed in with the rest of his team, scoring twice and piling up 107 rushing yards on just 14 carries. Granted, that was against an embarrassingly bad Dolphins team, but the schedule doesn’t really get harder this week with the hapless Cardinals coming to town. The Ravens are 13-point favorites.

Arizona didn’t bleed yards on the ground last week, but they were also playing the Lions. Going back to last season, the Cardinals were a gift to opposing runners; only two teams allowed more points to running backs.

Fantasy Impact: Ingram’s injury wasn’t enough to keep him out of practice, and it isn’t enough to keep him out of your lineups this week. His salary in DraftKings leagues this week is just $6,000, which makes him a pretty good bargain. The man is going to eat.
