General News (Wed Nov 26): practiced fully on Wednesday.

Week 13: at Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Saints' rushing attack got Pierre Thomas back in action vs. Baltimore, and he added 5/19/0 rushing and 6/37/0 receiving to the team effort, while Mark Ingram continues to lead the team in rushes with 11/27/0 and 2/15/0 receiving. New Orleans' total was padded by an end-around run by Joe Morgan (1/67/0), but the running backs had very little room to roam against the stout Baltimore defensive front last week. Khiry Robinson remains sidelined due to his forearm complaint - keep an eye on his practice participation this week in's Players in the News if you are contemplating Robinson for a fantasy lineup this week. The Steelers' rush D is ranked 10th in the NFL averaging 102.2 yards allowed pr game, with eight rushing scores given up to date. Last week, they were on bye so they've had plenty of time to prepare for New Orleans - two weeks ago, Tennessee was held to 15/49/1 rushing after the Jets posted 36/150/0 rushing on the Steelers back in Week 10. This is a tough matchup for the Saints as they visit Heinz Field on Sunday.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs SF (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)

It doesn't look like the Saints are going to give Cadet more than two or three carries per game anytime soon and thus his impact is pretty limited. Cadet looked pretty good on his rare opportunities to run the ball. He took a shotgun handoff, had no hole at all but stayed patient, did a jump cut to his left and then burst forward for a gain of eight yards. He showed a little bit of power to fall forward and gain the first down on the run as well.

2014 Week 11 vs CIN (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

Cadet was again a non-factor as a runner, getting stoned at the line of scrimmage on his only rushing opportunity. He was able to do a nice job as an outlet receiver though he has not been able to make any big plays in that role. He shows nice speed and a little bit of wiggle, but has not been able to make guys miss in space to really break off any big gains.

2014 Week 12 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

The return of Pierre Thomas impacted Cadet's playing time in a major way as he only saw the field for 12% of the offensive snaps and made little impact.

Our View: Robinson probably won't play, while Cadet is almost impossible to start and no better than an RB6, which makes him useless.
