2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jun-23-2014 by Kimra Schleicher
Travaris Cadet is locked into the RBBC in the backfield. With the departure of Darren Sproles, Cadet will see more opportunities as a pass-catching back. His value lies as a handcuff to Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson. I would not draft Cadet in a 20-round redraft league, but I would draft him in a draft masters format if I had already taken Thomas or Robinson for my team. He is a late round flier and could emerge as a deep sleeper with an injury to Thomas or Robinson. He is fourth on the depth chart, so draft accordingly.
As expected, the Saints will be without running backs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas tonight versus the Panthers. Both are officially inactive. Neither player practiced during the short week and will be missing his second consecutive game. Thomas has a shoulder injury while Robinson has a forearm injury.Fantasy Analysis:
As least Robinson made the trip to Carolina. Both players are looking to return in Week 10. Until then, Mark Ingram is a borderline RB1 tonight against a defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs. With Robinson and Thomas sidelined on Sunday night versus the Packers, Ingram gained 175 yards on 25 touches. He also reached the end zone, and the Panthers have given up 10 touchdowns to RBs this year.
For those in need of a deep PPR flex, you should already know about Travaris Cadet. He is almost purely a receiving weapon and has 10 receptions in the past two weeks. He has a fairly high floor in New Orleans' high-powered offense. I think he's a solid bet to reach double-digit points in PPR formats tonight (five catches, 50 yards).
