2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Saints love Thomas and his versatility. Unfortunately, they didnít like him enough entering last season to not draft Mark Ingram and sign Darren Sproles in free agency. Interestingly, it wasnít the presence of Sproles that caused Thomasí fantasy value to decline (he caught a career-high 50 passes), it was having to split goal line work with Ingram. Removing the 2010 season in which he appeared in just six games, Thomasí touchdowns have declined from 12 to eight to six. He was worth owning as a low end RB2 in 2008 and 2009 while averaging double digit fantasy PPG despite averaging between 10-13 touches per game. That wasnít the case in 2011 though, as his average PPG dropped to 8.4. With Ingram expected to be healthy in 2012 and Sproles coming off a career-season, not much is expected to change for Thomas. Basically, he needs Ingram or Sproles to be out with an injury to be a useful fantasy contributor but the presence of Chris Ivory even clouds that prognosis.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury RB Mark Ingram returns to practice, Graham sits     -- Wed Oct 15 4:30 pm --

Running back may wear small brace
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram returned to practice on Wednesday and said he planned to play in the Saints' game Sunday at the Detroit Lions. Tight end Jimmy Graham, who left the Tampa Bay game on Oct. 5 after suffering a neck injury, did not practice. (Times-Picayune)

FF Today's Take: Mark Ingram was a full participant in practice and should be available to play this weekend against the Lions. Fantasy owners should take a "wait and see" approach with Ingram for Week 7 to see HC Sean Payton splits the running duties in a crowded backfield. Likewise, Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson will see their fantasy value dip upon Ingram's return. TE Jimmy Graham is dealing with a neck injury. The true extent of his injury is unknown but recent reports have tabbed him to miss at least two weeks.
Injury Mark Ingram expected to miss a month     -- Mon Sep 15 12:30 pm --

Hand injury
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected to miss about a month with a hand injury he suffered Sunday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Ingram was off to a good start this season rushing for 143 yards on 24 carries with 3 TDs over the first two weeks. Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas will likely see their roles increased.
Pierre Thomas expects changes to his role     -- Thu Aug 21 6:00 pm --

Currently lining up as Saints' No. 3 RB
There has been much speculation about what New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas' role would be this season and the eighth-year veteran said Wednesday night he knows things are going to be different in 2014. Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson both are expected to see their roles increase this season and Thomas figured to become the No. 3 back in the offense. However, Thomas doesn't plan on going quietly. While mentioning that coaches said his role will change this upcoming season, Thomas said he isn't going down without a fight. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

FF Today's Take: The Saints haven't exactly tipped their hand in regards to Thomas' new role as he has yet to log a touch in the preseason. It seems likely he will come close to matching his passing-game contributions in light of Darren Sproles' departure, although Robinson's emergence will probably cap his snaps in the running game.
