2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Kimra Schleicher
Mark Ingram is a former first rounder that has been riddled with injuries, evidence by his 11 missed games over his first three seasons. His play has been disappointing to say the least. The Saints have not extended his contract, so this is a make-or-break year. In 2013, Ingram had only seven receptions and a bulk of his rushing yardage came against one of the worst defenses in the NFL. He was held to under 10 carries in all but two games last season. With the emergence of Khiry Robinson (and Pierre Thomas' role being already defined), Ingram is a risky player to draft even as a flex. The backfield appears to be a full RBBC, but it is unlikely to see Ingram carving out a significant role due to his injury history and lack of receiving skills.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday morning that, according to a source, Saints running back Pierre Thomas will miss the next 2-3 weeks because of the shoulder injury that forced out of Sunday's loss to the Lions in the third quarter.Fantasy Analysis:
The nature and severity of Thomas' injury hasn't been disclosed, but Rapoport's timetable gives the sense that it's a shoulder sprain. Thomas has been an up-and-down flex RB in PPR leagues. With him sidelined, Travaris Cadet should be owned in such leagues. He had nine targets against the Lions, only one behind team leader Marques Colston, and five of those targets came during the fourth quarter while Thomas was in the locker room. Cadet caught six of those passes for 51 yards. Cadet has a couple of nice upcoming matchups as well -- hosting Green Bay and at Carolina. Mark Ingram will remain at the head of the table in this backfield while Khiry Robinson will get some scraps. Cadet is an understandable PPR flex this weekend against the Packers on the Superdome turf.
