Travaris Cadet 'taking advantage' of opportunities at practice

ESPN - [Full Article]

It's hard to imagine running back Travaris Cadet playing a huge role for the New Orleans Saints this year because he's stuck in such a deep position group.

But then again, it's hard to ignore how many opportunities the third-year pro has been getting so far in offseason practices -- and how well he's taking advantage of them.

Cadet has been showing off his speed and elusiveness while both running the football and catching passes out of the backfield.

If he keeps this up throughout training camp and the preseason, Cadet may indeed get a chance to take over a big chunk of that runner/receiver role that Darren Sproles played in New Orleans' offense before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.

Fantasy Impact: 

Cadet could step in and (partially) fill the role vacated by Darren Sproles, but the Saints also want to get Khiry Robinson more work in the backfield and drafted Brandin Cooks to man the slot.
