Saints | Pierre Thomas to miss Week 8

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:08:07 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is expected to miss a few weeks, so owners should keep him on the bench until he is ready to return. Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet will receive the work at running back and both could be flex options on FantasyScore with Ingram costing $4,800 and Cadet costing $3,300.

Saints | Pierre Thomas sits out of practice

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:21:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas isn't expected to play this week, so Travaris Cadet could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore at $3,300, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | Pierre Thomas does not practice

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:37:21 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is expected to miss a few weeks, so he should not be an option for fantasy owners this week. Travaris Cadet probably will serve as the team's third-down back with Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson playing on first and second downs. Cadet could have the most value in point-per-reception leagues since he likely will be part of the passing game. Cadet costs $3,300 on FantasyScore this week with Ingram costing $4,800 and Robinson costing $4,300.

Saints | Pierre Thomas out 2-3 weeks

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 05:45:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is expected to miss two to three weeks due to a shoulder injury, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Travaris Cadet ($3,300; 6.6% of your cap) is probably the largest benefactor as he was starting to take a bite out of Thomas' receiving back role. He has 9 catches for 78 yards and a score the last two weeks combined and is a cheap flex option. Mark Ingram ($4,800; 9.6%) should be a better start on FantasyScore w/ Thomas gone as well. Khiry Robinson ($4,300; 8.6%) is likely in the doghouse after losing a fumble on three carries over the weekend.

Saints | Pierre Thomas injured

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:27:36 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) left the team's Week 7 game early because of a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson likely will share the work at running back while Thomas is out of the lineup. Both Ingram and Robinson are solid flex options for owners in most weeks.

Saints | Mark Ingram 100 percent ready

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 16:30:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (thumb) said he hasn't been limited at all after returning to practice this week, and he no longer has a brace on his hand. "I'm ready to go full go, 100 percent, full tilt," Ingram said. "I've been getting all the reps in practice. They haven't babied me or eased me into practice, so I've been doing everything, catching, running, blocking, everything." However, head coach Sean Payton has been mum on how the team will split repetitions between Ingram and RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Take note that Ingram should be back this week. That makes his low cost at FantasyScore intriguing, but be cautious. The three-headed monster could be back, making it a frustrating week-to-week guessing game.

Saints | Jimmy Graham likely to miss 2 games

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 07:07:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is expected to miss two to three weeks after the bye week in Week 6, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints offense relies on Graham most, but, honestly, the entire depth chart could benefit in his absence. Look for more reliance on Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Marques Colston in the red zone.

Saints | Pierre Thomas still producing

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 11:11:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas is currently RB11 in point-per-reception leagues. Thomas has seen a noticeably decreased role in the running game, but is still top-five among running backs in catches (22).

Fantasy Tip: Thomas should be an every-week starter in PPR leagues even if/when Mark Ingram returns after the team's Week 6 bye.
