There are also some situations where increased playing time allowed a player to be worth taking a shot on for this coming week.

For the second straight week, Ingram posted the Steelers' second-highest pass-rush grade while also playing a large enough snap share to stay relevant in the coming weeks. Ingram is currently playing as the second starter across from T.J. Watt and ahead of Alex Highsmith. With Watt dealing with a groin injury that has him questionable for Week 3, there should be no hesitation in adding Ingram to rosters where he is available. Even if Watt plays, Ingram is still worth the add in most formats.
Ingram didn't record a sack in his seven games in 2020, but he did manage 28 pressures while earning a 76.3 pass-rush grade. Ingram broke the streak last week and currently has an 81.2 pass-rush grade through two weeks. Playing on the Steelers defensive line should also help Ingram get home more often this season, as they have historically created a lot of cleanup opportunities through schemed pressures and relying on the overall talent among the starters on their defensive line.
