Week 4: at San Diego Chargers

All RB vs SD

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Mark Ingram got his engine cranked up vs. the Falcons on Monday Night Football, rushing for 15/77/0 and adding six targets for 4/30/1 receiving during the contest. Fullback John Kuhn vultured a TD rush from Ingram (1/3/1 rushing) but otherwise nobody else on the team had more than 10 yards rushing on the night - Ingram is the featured back coming into Week Four, friends. The Chargers lost a track-meet at Indianapolis 22-26 last week, allowing 26/93/2 rushing to the Colts' backs. They are averaging 81.7 rushing yards allowed per game this year (sixth in the NFL) but have coughed up four rushing scores to date. San Diego averages 21.7 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (ninth-most in the NFL). This is a good matchup for a dual-threat back like Ingram.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 32 / 0 rec)

Cadet ran a short out from the right slot on the team's first drive for five yards against man coverage. He was the target on a screen pass late in the second period, but was tackled for a five-yard loss in the left flat due to backfield penetration by the defense. Cadet ran a double move vertical route up the left sideline early in the second half, beating man coverage for a 25-yard gain. Cadet quickly turned around in the right flat for a three-yard gain midway through the fourth, as he was earned consistent playing time with the Saints passing every down. He received two more very shallow targets later in the drive as an extension of the running game. The scatback has earned consistent playing time but little fantasy value outside of deep PPR leagues.

2016 Week 2 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Cadet's first reception occurred late in the first half, a short screen to the left flat for ten yards on third-and-long. Cadet committed a brutal drop in crunch time on a HB option route. New Orleans' passing back has suffered a concerning amount of drops throughout the first two games and his coaching staff may be losing confidence in him as a result.

2016 Week 1 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 7 / 3 / 14 / 1 rec)

Cadet's lone rush came on the game's second drive, an uneventful toss off right tackle for one yard. Cadet came within inches of a receiving touchdown on the following drive, but could not drag his second foot in-bounds. Cadet was an integral target in New Orleans' two-minute attack before halftime, but he suffered two drop on his first two opportunities. He successfully executed his third target on the drive, taking the dumpoff in the flat for six yards. Later, the receiving back caught another short dumpoff on a hitch near the left boundary for six yards. Cadet drew a pass interference call early in the third quarter, utilizing a double move to gain an advantage up the left sideline. He took advantage of a pick play on a flat route near the goal-line to execute on a two-yard touchdown. The diminutive scatback is clearly New Orleans' preferred option to C.J. Spiller despite the latter's notable preseason playing time, but is unlikely to parlay this role into fantasy relevance.
