NFL | Pierre Thomas' hands among the best

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 19:35:20 -0700

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) ranked seventh among running backs with 45 catches last season, and only Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy graded higher at catching the ball, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas' fantasy value is currently in limbo, but if he lands with a team that needs a reliable third-down back, he could be worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues.

Redskins | Washington looking at Pierre Thomas

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:09:58 -0700

Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) has drawn some interest from the Washington Redskins as they look to give competition to RBs Chris Thompson and Silas Redd for the third-down role, according to a source. However, Washington will likely see what's available in the draft before proceeding with Thomas. Among the options the Redskins could look at in the draft are Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah, Northern Iowa RB David Johnson, Miami (Fla.) RB Duke Johnson, South Carolina RB Mike Davis and Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas could be an intriguing fantasy option if he lands with the Redskins, because the team plans to utilize the ground game often. However, his value would be clouded if Thompson took valuable third-down touches away. Stay tuned on where Thomas lands in free agency.

Saints | Three RBs on Saints' roster

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:29:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Pierre Thomas' (Saints) release by the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 4, will save $1.735 million against the salary cap, and he carries an $830,000 "dead money" charge. Thomas would have counted $2.565 million against the salary cap this year. The Saints currently have three running backs on roster: RBs Khiry Robinson, Edwin Baker and Tim Hightower. RBs Travaris Cadet and Mark Ingram are both scheduled to be free agents.

Fantasy Tip: The release of PT cruiser isn't unexpected, since his role had quickly diminished over the last couple of seasons. If Ingram isn't re-signed, Robinson will have a clear path to the lead-back duties in New Orleans. And in an offense as potent as this, that'll make him very intriguing to fantasy football owners. Robinson could head into 2015 as a low-end RB1.

Saints | Pierre Thomas released

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 15:47:40 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas was released Wednesday, March 4.

Fantasy Tip: If impending free-agent RB Mark Ingram leaves, Khiry Robinson should take the reins as the Saints' primary running back and could garner RB2 consideration in standard scoring formats. Robinson played in just 10 games in 2014 but was productive when he did, averaging 4.8 yards on 76 carries with three touchdowns in a time split with Ingram and Thomas.

Saints | Pierre Thomas placed on IR

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 11:55:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Tip: With Thomas gone for the year, Mark Ingram should get more work in Week 17, and is a decent starting option for FantasyScore players this week.

Saints | Pierre Thomas sits out

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 16:37:01 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Thomas will be able to play in Week 17, but owners should monitor the situation to see if things change. Mark Ingram could receive more playing time if Thomas misses the game and could be a good starting option at FantasyScore.

Saints | Pierre Thomas doesn't practice

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:07:10 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on his status throughout the week, but if Thomas is unable to play, Mark Ingram ($5,555) would make a decent start with a good matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are allowing over 100 yards per game to running backs.

Saints | Pierre Thomas leaves early

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 11:37:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs) left the team's Week 16 game early after injuring his ribs and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet likely will receive more work if Thomas is out for the rest of the game. Cadet could be a sleeper option on FantasyScore next week if Thomas is not able to play.

Saints | Khiry Robinson to be eased back in

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 14:51:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm), who is expected to return in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers, is expected to be eased back into the backfield, especially since RB Mark Ingram has done well in a leading role. RB Pierre Thomas also returned a week ago. Ingram rushed 23 times for 122 yards in the Week 13 win, which was his fourth 100-yard game with Robinson out. Robinson was running well before he was hurt, and his 5.2 yards per carry rank second in the league if he was eligible.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers present a juicy matchup for the Saints running backs. Unfortunately, it won't be wise to use Robinson, even at what should be a cheap FantasyScore price, until he's back in the running back rotation receiving substantial touches.

Saints | Pierre Thomas probable for Week 13

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:19:04 -0800

New Orleans Saints Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) is probable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas still has more value in point-per-reception leagues as he proved last week with six catches for 37 yards. At $5,200 on FantasyScore he might be worth the investment in what could be a shootout.
