Payton: Saints RB Khiry Robinson will 'obviously' get more carries

USA Today - [Full Article]

Saints HC Sean Payton said Khiry Robinson would "obviously" get more carries.

"Certainly he's further along here in Year 2 with the whole game. He understands fronts more and where plays are designed to go more and also the protections," Payton said. "He's a physical runner. He's got really good balance and so he'll be fired up for the opportunity and he's already been, really, a big part of our plan."

Fantasy Impact: 

Pierre Thomas will get a bump, but we believe that the Saints will give most of Ingram's carries to Robinson, who is probably the better pure runner at this point. Mark Ingram is considered 'week to week,' but is expected to be out about a month.
