Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 17 vs ATL (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 77 / 0 rec)

Cadet was busy out of the backfield on Sunday. His role began with what appeared to be a designed dump-off on New Orleans' second play from scrimmage for nine yards. Cadet's first carry began his team's second possession, a rush off right guard for seven yards. He won inside leverage with an option route out of the backfield on the following down, winning his matchup with a Falcon LB for 36 yards. An inside handoff for his third straight touch ended up losing a yard. He continued to gain yardage out of the backfield on their third drive with a reception while matched up with an Atlanta DE in the left flat for eight yards. Lining up in the slot two plays later, Cadet ran an out-route to the left sideline for a quick six yards against the Atlanta blitz. Early in the second half, Cadet continued to win inside leverage on option routes with a nine-yard reception. Cadet's next touch didn't come until it was fairly late in the final quarter, but he won his individual matchup on a LB out of the backfield on an arrow route for nine pivotal yards. However, on the very next down, he tried to show power as a runner through the middle of Atlanta's defense, but ended up coughing up the football for a costly fumble on Atlanta's one yard-line. Cadet served as a plus playmaker out of the backfield by consistently winning his individual matchups, and seems capable of doing just that as a depth option going forward.

2015 Week 16 vs JAX (1 / 6 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 69 / 1 rec)

The newly-signed Cadet accrued his first reception late in the first quarter, a wheel route up the left sideline for 12 yards and a new set of downs. Cadet's lone rush came late in the first half, a pitch off left tackle for six into Jacksonville's red zone. In New Orleans' two-minute drill before halftime, he caught a pass in the right flat before following his blockers for 13 yards. Midway through the third, Cadet emerged once again with a wheel route up the left boundary to capitalize on a blown coverage for a 44-yard touchdown. He was able to return to his old stomping grounds and fill in for C.J. Spiller with relative ease.

2015 Week 15 vs CIN (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 6 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

Initially, Cadet appeared to be the full-time replacement for Shaun Draughn, as he was on the field for every one of San Francisco's remaining first-half plays. To start the second half, however, coaches reduced his role to a mere third-down back. Given that they were in passing situations for that entire half (down 2 or more scores), and Cadet is a pass-catching back, the decision seems curious. Nothing on film indicated a major, bench-worthy error on Cadet's part, and he didn't appear to hurt himself. The only possible explanation is that all three of his first-half carries gained minimal yardage (including one nullified by holding), so coaches wanted to get a better runner on the field to maintain offensive balance, or at least the perception of it.
