I don't buy into Matthews being a star in the NFL either but I also don't think Tolbert is a long term FF option. I would keep both Beanie and Ingram. Tolbert and Matthews are headed for a timeshare and that is not good in FF terms.

Is this keeper? Don't think it matters too much, because I think either way you should keep Ingram, but if it's keeper it's more of a reason to do so IMO. I think Ingram has more upside than Tolbert given Mathews is probably going to have a fair share of SD's run game. The one thing to keep in mind though is that the Chargers run a more balanced offense while the Saints are pretty pass-heavy ~2:1 if I remember correctly vs ~5:4 for San Diego. Anyway, keep Ingram. I think the odds that he's #1 RB in New Orleans in the near-term are higher than Tolbert's chances in San Diego.
As far as Wells: Given the injury to Williams, he'll probably get a few more looks, but I don't think it affects him all that much. Kolb-Fitz should open up the field a bit more for Beanie, so he's a relatively safe bet. And as bungle613 said, RBBC is never something you want to buy into.

Yup it is redraft, no keepers.

I def decided not to do the trade but Ingram sitting out of practice today has me a little worried.

Saints rookie Mark Ingram sat out Tuesday's practice with swelling in his knee.

Ingram will likely miss Wednesday's practice as well, but the Saints don't seem to be concerned about the swelling. He's expected back on the field later this week. Aug 23 - 10:38 PM

Ironcially, aside from his sitting out, I'd have said trade Ingram. In a redraft league , you need who's gonna produce NOW. Ingram will wear down (rookies always do as the season gets along) and he shares with lots of talent. Tolbert is still getting lots of carries. Lots of goal line shots.

All moot thou from the sound of it if you nixed the trade. Guess time will tell.
Thank God for Football Season.
