Cadet is handling kickoffs, though the Saints signed Jalen Saunders for punt returns.

Week 16: vs Atlanta Falcons

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Way back in Week 1, Mark Ingram (13/60/2 rushing and 1/1/0 receiving) and Khiry Robinson (6/28/1 rushing) both punched in TDs for the Saints, and they ground out 28/139/3 rushing during a tough OT loss in Atlanta. Since then Ingram has been the main workhorse for the Saints, but recently Robinson is working his way back into action after a long injury absence - last Monday Night, Ingram ran 17/59/1 against the Bears, while Robinson (3/10/0 rushing with 2/10/0 receiving) and Pierre Thomas (2/11/0 with 5/83/0) performed in the change-of-pace role. When it comes to carries out of the backfield, Ingram is the man, but Thomas tends to handle the receiving duties (similar to how things have worked in years past). Atlanta's rush D is putrid this year, averaging 117.4 yards rushing allowed per game (20th in the NFL) with a league-worst 19 rushing scores given away over 14 games. Pittsburgh was 'limited' to 22/45 rushing, but LeVeon Bell crammed in two TDs anyway. Two weeks ago, Green Bay put up 30/179/2 rushing on this defensive front. Advantage, Ingram and the Saints' other backs.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs PIT (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Cadet had two short catches, one out of the backfield and one in which he was lined up in the slot. Cadet remains a fantasy non-factor with Pierre Thomas healthy.

2014 Week 14 vs CAR (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Cadet got some touches late, as he was the primary RB for most of the Saints garbage time touchdown-drive in the middle of the 4th quarter. From a fantasy perspective, there is nothing to see here as Ingram and Thomas are ahead of Cadet in the Saints pecking order. Longer term, Cadet does not look physical enough to be anything but a bit player going forward.
