It hasn't taken Mark Ingram any time to get comfortable in the Baltimore Ravens' offense, and he ranks ninth among running backs in PPR fantasy football scoring through five weeks. We can expect him to continue thriving in Week 6, as he draws a terrific matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Only the Miami Dolphins have allowed more than the Bengals' 38.0 PPR fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, and Cincinnati ranks 31st (again ahead of only Miami) in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA rankings.

Ingram's hefty fantasy numbers come in part from his six rushing touchdowns (second in the NFL), but he hasn't been hurting for volume either, averaging 16.6 opportunities (14.8 carries and 1.8 targets) per game on the year.

This terrific matchup should also lend itself to an especially run-heavy game flow, as the Ravens are 10.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Getting the season's RB9 in a great matchup, we have Ingram sitting seventh at the position in our Week 6 PPR fantasy football rankings and sixth in our Week 6 standard scoring rankings.
