Sprint Planning and Workload Estimates

In our sprint planning sessions we usually assign around 50 tickets for a two week sprint. We have a 4 person team. Our close rate is around 60%. I am trying to find a better way to estimate workload but it seems almost impossible to gauge how much work is assigned to each team member during planning sessions. It doesnt make a lof of sense to not give a running total so we can see if we are overloading a certain resource. Am I missing something?
