Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle out) missed practice again Friday and has been ruled out for week 5. Thomas hasn't yet been able to run hard on the ankle. If it were a playoff game, Thomas would try to go, but being it's week 5 the Saints will rest their top back. Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory (knee Probable) will share the load in a nice matchup with the Cardinals. Neither one is clearly a better fantasy option than the other. Ivory should handle goal-line duties while Betts will catch more passes.
