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.

Saints | Saints' top three RBs back on the field

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 13:59:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram (shoulder), RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and RB Travaris Cadet (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram likely will receive most of his work in the running game in Week 13 while Thomas probably will be used more in the passing game. Cadet will also see some playing time. Ingram ($6,600) and Thomas ($5,200) are options on FantasyScore, but owners may want to lower their expectations since the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has recently played well against opposing running backs.

Saints | Saints' top three RBs practice

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:10:14 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram (shoulder), Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram probably will continue to receive a majority of the carries with Thomas being more involved in the passing game. Cadet probably will receive time if one of the other running backs needs a break. Ingram costs $6,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to lower their expectations since the Pittsburgh Steelers have held opposing running backs in check over the last four weeks. Thomas costs $5,200 and could be a flex option because of his receiving ability. Owners should not consider using Cadet even though he only costs $3,200.

Saints | Pierre Thomas probable

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 11:54:55 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has more value in point-per-reception leagues but could be limited in his return and is a risky start at $5,200 on FantasyScore, especially with Travaris Cadet still expected to play.

Saints | Pierre Thomas, Travaris Cadet limited

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:24:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) were both limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21. Cadet did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas ($5,200) is the more expensive FantasyScore option, while Cadet costs just $3,200. Both players will likely be questionable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens, meaning it's probably safer to just avoid both.
