Saints Beat: Pierre Thomas 'isn't being usurped' by Travaris Cadet

Mike Triplett, ESPN - [Full Article]

Pierre Thomas isn't being usurped by Travaris Cadet, even though Cadet wound up with six catches last week in a 38-17 loss at Dallas while Thomas had four total touches. Coach Sean Payton explained that the Saints spent much of the game in their hurry-up, empty-backfield sets while playing catch-up, and that's a package that specifically features Cadet. Normally, Thomas will get more snaps than Cadet.

Fantasy Impact: 

Thomas is still a decent RB3/flex play, especially in PPR formats. The Saints should lead the Bucs for most of the game, so Thomas will see plenty of work in the team's base offense.
