Saints backfield picture no clearer following Mark Ingram's return
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With the return of Mark Ingram, we got our first glimpse of how the Saints running backs might be used in Week 7 against the Lions. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to take from the game, thank to the stifling defense played by the Lions.

Ingram and Pierre Thomas received the most work, but neither was particularly effective in the game. Ingram ran the ball 10 times for 16 yards, while Thomas had just 13 yards on six carries -- lead-footed quarterback Drew Brees also had 13 yards, on just one carry. The team was actually led by Khiry Robinson, who racked up 26 yards on three carries.

Thomas was a bit more active in the passing game, hauling in four passes for 17 yards. However, Travaris Cadet was still the top receiver out of the backfield with six receptions for 51 yards, which is bad news for Thomas. Ingram and Robinson might be the top rushing options on the roster, so Thomas needs to make his name as a receiving option if he is going to be Fantasy relevant.

At this point, the Saints have four options out of the backfield, all of whom can be dynamic playmakers when given the chance. Things should be easier moving forward, as the Lions' rushing defense is arguably the league's toughest. However, with so many mouths to feed, it might be tough for Fantasy owners to rely on anyone here until their roles get a bit clearer.

Saints' running back situation a bit dodgy now
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected back in the lineup Week 7 at Detroit, but how much he'll play coming off a three-game, four-week absence for a broken hand is to be determined.

Starting him in Fantasy already causes enough anxiety, what with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson also in the picture. Robinson performed well in Ingram's absence and could spell him more in the beginning as a result, and Thomas, because of his receiving ability, could play more if the Saints' fall behind, which is distinctly possible given that the Lions are No. 1 against the pass.

They're not such a great matchup for the running backs either, allowing just 73.5 rushing yards per game, second-fewest in the league.

If you're going to start a Saints running back in standard leagues, it should probably be Ingram since he's the best bet to get the ball at the goal line, but you probably shouldn't start a Saints running back in standard leagues. Thomas is OK in points-per-reception leagues.
