Scouting report

NO RB Travaris Cadet - Week 2, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at New York Giants
Travaris Cadet turned seven targets into three catches for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Saints Week 1 loss to the Raiders. Those seven targets were more than the two targets that Mark Ingram saw in the passing game, so perhaps at some point this season Cadet will have value in PPR formats. For now though, keep Cadet on your bench as he ranks as our RB54 for Week 2 in PPR.

NO RB Travaris Cadet - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
The Saints claimed Travaris Cadet off waivers in December and he was immediately more productive than C.J. Spiller as the team’s passing-down back. New Orleans re-signed Cadet to a one-year deal in March, so they clearly value him enough to keep him around. If Spiller is released or there’s a significant injury in the Saints backfield, Cadet would have some appeal in PPR leagues as a pure pass-catcher.

Fantasy Downside
Heading into training camp, Cadet is behind Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller on the Saints running back depth chart. He did total 83 yards against the Falcons in Week 17, with most of that production coming from six catches and 77 yards in the passing game. But Ingram also didn’t play in that game, so Cadet’s role was expanded for that week. Unless Ingram is injured and Cadet leap-frogs Spiller to become the Saints primary passing-down back, there just won’t be enough opportunities for the 27-year-old.

2016 Bottom Line
Cadet ranks as our RB92 and is going undrafted in both 10 and 12-team leagues. Feel free to bypass Cadet in your draft, but if you’re in a PPR league, know that he could be in store for a bigger role in the passing game if Ingram and/or Spiller fall victim to injury. Thus, he could be a desperate streaming option down the road.

NO RB Travaris Cadet - Week 17, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Atlanta
Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-5 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 16 win over the Jaguars. After two Jacksonville defenders ran into each other, Cadet found himself wide open on his 44-yard touchdown reception. With C.J. Spiller out for the season, Cadet will once again carve out a role in passing situations this Sunday versus the Falcons. That said, he won't see nearly enough volume to earn a start in either standard or DFS leagues this week. Cadet ranks as our RB46 for Week 17.

Week 17: Cadet vs. Bucs
After not receiving a carry in the Saints' Week 16 loss to the Falcons, Travaris Cadet could see some touches in Week 17 if Pierre Thomas misses the game with a rib injury. Regardless, he has zero fantasy value and should remain on your waiver wire.

NO RB Travaris Cadet - Week 12, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12: Cadet vs. Ravens
Travaris Cadet caught four passes for 31 yards and also rushed once for no yards in the Saints’ Week 11 loss to Cincinnati. His lone rush resulted in a fumble. While Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas are expected to miss at least another week due to injuries, Cadet will once again serve as Mark Ingram’s backup. But due to the Saints’ heavy usage of Ingram, Cadet has zero fantasy value and should be avoided in all formats this week.

NO RB Travaris Cadet - Week 11, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11: Cadet vs. Bengals
Travaris Cadet rushed twice for nine yards and caught three passes on five targets for an additional 18 yards in the Saints’ Week 10 loss to the 49ers. Mark Ingram remains the focal point of the running game in New Orleans and that leaves very little touches for Cadet, even in the passing game. Despite Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas' injury issues and a great matchup against a Cincinnati team that ranks 30th overall in fantasy points allowed to running backs, avoid Cadet this week.

NO RB Travaris Cadet - Week 10, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10: Cadet vs. 49ers
Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards while also rushing twice for one yard in the Saints’ Week 9 win over the Panthers. Fantasy owners looking to cash in on Cadet with Pierre Thomas out with an injury were left disappointed. It doesn’t appear that Thomas will play this week but even with him out, Cadet is merely a RB4 with Mark Ingram taking over as the full-time back in New Orleans. Cadet ranks as our No. 36 overall RB for Week 10 and should be avoided.
