Saints | Pierre Thomas quietly effective in opener

New Orleans RB Pierre Thomas was quietly effective in the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons, finishing with 43 yards on nine carries. The Saints ran the ball 29 times, and plan to run more to help the passing game. Last season, the Saints had 29 or more rushing attempts just twice, 28 or more three times.

Fantasy Tip: If you're looking for rushing yardage in New Orleans, Thomas and Mark Ingram are your best fantasy bets. Darren Sproles is the man for those in points-per-receptions (PPR) formats.
