Week 12: vs Baltimore Ravens
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Mark Ingram continues to play well in the featured back role, with almost 100 yards combined last week (23/67/0 rushing with 7/30/0 receiving) and 79/289/2 rushing with 11/59/0 receiving to his credit over the past three games (while Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas have been sidelined). Travaris Cadet has chipped in 5/10/0 rushing and 10/78/0 receiving in Thomas' stead, but Ingram is the featured back for the Saints right now. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News this week to see if Robinson or Thomas is able to get back in the mix for Week 12 - a return by either guy would likely erode some of Ingram's touches away from him. The Ravens' rush D is now ranked fifth in the NFL averaging 84.5 yards given up per game, with six rushing scores surrendered to date. Tennessee managed 22/67/0 rushing at M and T Bank Stadium two weeks ago, while the Steelers posted 25/55/0 rushing vs. Baltimore two games ago. Ingram is on a tear, but the Ravens are no pushover in this phase of the game - this looks like a tough matchup for the Saints' running backs.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 9 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
With Robinson and Thomas still injured, Cadet was the clear #2 back behind Ingram playing 22 snaps. Unlike in past weeks, he did not share the backfield with another back at all (the Saints have had success with a 2-back set featuring Thomas and Cadet) but got plenty of opportunities out of the 1-back formation. Cadet was again effective as an outlet receiver. Cadet was unable to get loose for any big plays and did nothing with his two rushing attempts.
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.

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