Travaris Cadet's role about to change
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With Pierre Thomas expected to miss a healthy chunk of time with a shoulder injury, Travaris Cadet is now the main receiving option out of the Saints backfield, and that should mean good things for the third-year man out of Appalachian State.

Cadet was already fifth on the team in targets through six games, and the absence of Thomas is only going to increase his workload. The two are averaging 8.3 targets out fo the backfield between them, and with Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram more traditional backs, the majority of those looks should go Cadet's way.

Cadet has already shown he can be a useful receiver in a growing role recently, with 15 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown over the last three games. The Saints have always featured running backs in the passing game prominently, and now it is Cadet's turn. In PPR leagues, he should make for a solid starting option moving forward, with 29 Fantasy points over the last three weeks already.

Report: Pierre Thomas to miss 2-3 weeks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Pierre Thomas, who suffered a shoulder injury Sunday at Detroit, will miss two or three games, reports NFL Network. Thomas has rushed 30 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns and caught 26 passes for 204 yards and another score.

Thomas will miss Week 8 against the Packers and Week 9 at Carolina, according to the report. The Saints, however, have not updated Thomas' status. Travaris Cadet will fill in as New Orleans' pass-catching back while Thomas is sidelined.

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.

Travaris Cadet fills in well for Pierre Thomas
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Saints running back Pierre Thomas leaving early with a shoulder injury, running back Travaris Cadet drew nine targets Week 7 at Detroit. Cadet caught six balls for 51 yards, the second time in three games he's recorded six receptions.

Cadet has 15 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown over the last three games.

Thomas rushed six times for 13 yards and caught all four of his targets for 17 yards before suffering the injury in the third quarter. His status will be updated throughout the week.

New Orleans hosts Green Bay in Week 8.

Saints RB Travaris Cadet could see more snaps at receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) expected to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, the Saints could go with more four-receiver looks and line up running back Travaris Cadet outside, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Cadet has 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.
