In addition to what he did as an OC up until 2016, he was 7th and 1st in rush attempts as the run game coordinator in Baltimore over the last two seasons, which resulted in the 11th and 2nd best rushing attacks.
Roman has had success running the ball on offenses with rushing QBs in the past like Colin Kaepernick and Tyrod Taylor, and he’s had success. As you can see, his offenses have never finished outside the top-10 in rushing attempts, and it’s a huge staple of his philosophy. His offenses were top-5 in rushing attempts in 6 of the last 8 years.
After taking over as the run game coordinator in 2017, the Ravens went from 27th in rushing the year prior to 11th with a practice squad player in Alex Collins. He then had an undrafted rookie free agent Gus Edwards contribute to the 2nd best rushing team last year, with him averaging 93.4 rushing yards per game as the main ball carrier.
Now that he has another dangerous rushing QB in Lamar Jackson along with the best RB he’s had over the past two seasons, he has personnel that fits perfectly into the experience he’s had as an OC. The continuity in the run scheme will also prove valuable, as this will be the third straight year they’ll be running it, but this time he’ll be calling the plays.
Ingram should be able to average at least 15-20 touches per game, and his 4.08 PPR ADP is as safe as it comes at RB. Multiple RBs will likely touch the ball in this backfield, but according to PFF’s Scott Barrett, Greg Roman has given his RB1 more “Actual Opportunity” in his career as OC than all but three active offensive play callers.
Ingram’s ADP has dropped almost a round since April, partly due to the Ravens drafting Justice Hill. Hill is very cheap in drafts, and is a great late round upside RB target because of how much there is to go around in this rushing attack.
If you grabbed two WRs near the 2-3 turn and came around to see Ingram available at the end of the 4th, are you considering him as your RB2? 👇👇 Dope 🖼 by @swapscenter
