RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Ingram finally lived up to his first-round potential last year, recording 10.5 sacks to go along with 65 tackles and three forced fumbles in a breakout season. Now firmly situated on an emerging defense, Ingram could be poised for even better production in 2016.

2015

The Chargers are counting on Ingram to break out in his fourth season in the league. Injuries have limited him to just 13 games over the last two seasons, but he is healthy heading into 2015. He had four sacks in just nine games last year and could be set for a big year.

2014

Much was expected from Ingram in his second year as a pro last season, but a torn ACL ruined his plans. He was able to come back from the injury well ahead of schedule and played in four games, but only managed to log eight tackles and one sack. As 2014 approaches, he looks primed to have a big year and should help the Chargers mostly pedestrian pass rush.

2013

Ingram was set to have a break out season in 2013, but a torn ACL during an OTA session will most likely cost him the entire year.

2012

Many experts feel that the Chargers got a steal when Ingram fell to them in the late first round of the 2012 draft, and he is expected to immediately put a charge into San Diego's pass rush. He will play primarily at the outside linebacker spot, but early indications are that he will line up at a number of different positions throughout the season in an attempt to maximize his potential for getting after opposing quarterbacks.
