by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:26 pm ET) Saints running back Pierre Thomas exited Sunday's game against the Falcons in the first half with an injury to the ribs.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas dominates in screen game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Saints running back Pierre Thomas was lethal catching screen passes Monday night in his hometown of Chicago, turning five grabs into a season-high 83 receiving yards. Thomas added 11 yards on two carries.

On New Orleans' second drive, Thomas hauled in a pass in the flat and ripped off 39 yards. Thomas secured each of his targets and has caught five or more passes four times this season.

He'll play the Falcons on Sunday.


Saints RBs Ingram, Thomas held down in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) A lopsided score precluded the Saints backfield from receiving much of an opportunity Sunday against Carolina to run the ball.

The group was led by Mark Ingram with 10 carries for 43 yards and Pierre Thomas, who had just one run in the first half and finished with five for 38 yards. The two combined for six catches for just 27 yards.

The pair will get another chance at Chicago next Monday night.

Saints backfield split raises some concerns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Saints weren't able to rely on the rushing game as much as they might have preferred in Week 12, as their running backs combined for just 16 carries in a Monday night loss to the Ravens.

Mark Ingram, who had averaged 26 carries in the team's previous four games, had just 11 Monday, en route to a disappointing 27-yard showing. More alarmingly, Ingram played just 34 percent of the team's snaps in the loss, as Pierre Thomas' return cut into his playing time drastically. Thomas had just five carries, but hauled in six passes while playing 53 percent of the team's offensive snaps, as they fought their way back from a late deficit.

The Saints were within 10 points of the Ravens for much of the game, until a late touchdown put the Ravens up 14 with three minutes left. However, the Saints were clearly focused on throwing the ball for much of the game, which meant Thomas was the more useful option. That has to be concerning for Ingram's owners, who have gotten used to a healthy dose of carries.

If the Saints are up, they will likely use Ingram plenty, as he is clearly the best pure runner on the team. However, Thomas is going to get work when they want to put the ball in the air, and that might happen often on a team that ranks 25th in scoring defense. Both Thomas and Ingram will have their uses down the stretch, however, and could be low-end starting Fantasy options.


Pierre Thomas gets 11 touches in return

Saints backfield picture no clearer following Mark Ingram's return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) With the return of Mark Ingram, we got our first glimpse of how the Saints running backs might be used in Week 7 against the Lions. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to take from the game, thank to the stifling defense played by the Lions.

Ingram and Pierre Thomas received the most work, but neither was particularly effective in the game. Ingram ran the ball 10 times for 16 yards, while Thomas had just 13 yards on six carries -- lead-footed quarterback Drew Brees also had 13 yards, on just one carry. The team was actually led by Khiry Robinson, who racked up 26 yards on three carries.

Thomas was a bit more active in the passing game, hauling in four passes for 17 yards. However, Travaris Cadet was still the top receiver out of the backfield with six receptions for 51 yards, which is bad news for Thomas. Ingram and Robinson might be the top rushing options on the roster, so Thomas needs to make his name as a receiving option if he is going to be Fantasy relevant.

At this point, the Saints have four options out of the backfield, all of whom can be dynamic playmakers when given the chance. Things should be easier moving forward, as the Lions' rushing defense is arguably the league's toughest. However, with so many mouths to feed, it might be tough for Fantasy owners to rely on anyone here until their roles get a bit clearer.
