by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) The Saints enter a Week 12 showdown against the Ravens relatively healthy. According to the team's final injury report which was released on Saturday, Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Kyle Knox (hand) were the only players ruled out for the game. Robert Meachem (ankle) was deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder), Travaris Cadet (hamstring), Curtis Lofton (ankle), Keenan Lewis (knee), Zach Strief (chest) and Mark Ingram (shoulder) were all ruled as probable for Monday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet had only five touches in his team's 27-10 defeat to the Bengals in Week 11.

Even with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson sidelined on Sunday, Cadet was an afterthought in the rushing attack. He took a step back to Mark Ingram and was limited to only one carry for no gain. He stepped up in the aerial attack, hauling down four catches for 31 yards. He was targeted five times in the loss.

Cadet will look to get back on track Week 12 against the Ravens.


Saints' Travaris Cadet contributes little in Week 10 loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet continued to receive a minimal workload during the Saints’ 27-24 overtime loss to the 49ers in Week 10.

The Saints were without running backs Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, which made Cadet the top backup to Mark Ingram.

Cadet rushed twice for 9 yards, and also had three receptions for 18 yards on five targets.

The Saints will host the Bengals in Week 11.


Saints RB Travaris Cadet does little in Week 9 victory


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet failed to make much of an impact in his team's 28-10 Week 9 victory over the Panthers Thursday night.

The team heavily relied on Mark Ingram, who took 30 handoffs on the night. As a result, Cadet was only limited to five touches. He took two handoffs for only 1 yard and caught three of the five passes thrown his way for 29 yards.

The Saints will host San Francisco in Week 10.


Khiry Robinson, Pierre Thomas sit out again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Saints running backs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) missed practice for the second straight day Tuesday, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Travaris Cadet makes four grabs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet, getting additional playing time due to Pierre Thomas' injury, caught four of five targets for 40 yards in the Week 8 win over Green Bay. He has 19 catches over the past four games. Cadet also rushed once for 7 yards.

Saints rule out backs Thomas, Robinson against Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Running backs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) have been ruled out by the Saints for the Sunday game against Green Bay.

Their absences should mean increased work for Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet.


Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Travaris Cadet's role about to change


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With Pierre Thomas expected to miss a healthy chunk of time with a shoulder injury, Travaris Cadet is now the main receiving option out of the Saints backfield, and that should mean good things for the third-year man out of Appalachian State.

Cadet was already fifth on the team in targets through six games, and the absence of Thomas is only going to increase his workload. The two are averaging 8.3 targets out fo the backfield between them, and with Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram more traditional backs, the majority of those looks should go Cadet's way.

Cadet has already shown he can be a useful receiver in a growing role recently, with 15 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown over the last three games. The Saints have always featured running backs in the passing game prominently, and now it is Cadet's turn. In PPR leagues, he should make for a solid starting option moving forward, with 29 Fantasy points over the last three weeks already. 


Report: Pierre Thomas to miss 2-3 weeks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Saints running back Pierre Thomas, who suffered a shoulder injury Sunday at Detroit, will miss two or three games, reports NFL Network. Thomas has rushed 30 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns and caught 26 passes for 204 yards and another score.

Thomas will miss Week 8 against the Packers and Week 9 at Carolina, according to the report. The Saints, however, have not updated Thomas' status. Travaris Cadet will fill in as New Orleans' pass-catching back while Thomas is sidelined.


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. 


Travaris Cadet fills in well for Pierre Thomas


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) With Saints running back Pierre Thomas leaving early with a shoulder injury, running back Travaris Cadet drew nine targets Week 7 at Detroit. Cadet caught six balls for 51 yards, the second time in three games he's recorded six receptions.

Cadet has 15 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown over the last three games.

Thomas rushed six times for 13 yards and caught all four of his targets for 17 yards before suffering the injury in the third quarter. His status will be updated throughout the week.

New Orleans hosts Green Bay in Week 8.


Saints RB Travaris Cadet could see more snaps at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) With tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) expected to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, the Saints could go with more four-receiver looks and line up running back Travaris Cadet outside, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Cadet has 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Travaris Cadet scores touchdown in Week 5


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet didn't receive a carry in Week 5 but caught three of his five targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in his team's 37-31 overtime win over the Buccaneers.

Cadet had just three touches heading into Week 4 but managed six catches for 59 yards in his team's loss to the Cowboys. He delivered his first score of the season one week later, getting away from his defender on an out route and waltzing into the end zone for a five-yard touchdown. Cadet has just three carries for 10 yards but also 10 receptions for 83 yards in a limited role.


Travaris Cadet gets big passing-game role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Travaris Cadet, not Pierre Thomas, was the Saints' preferred passing-down back Sunday night at Dallas. Cadet caught all six of his targets for 59 yards, including a 31-yard gainer, while Thomas was limited to two receptions on two targets for 15 yards.

Cadet, however, lost a fumble with just under two minutes left in the blowout loss. He was not a factor as a runner, carrying once for 1 yard.

A third-year pro, Cadet entered the game with eight career catches, one this season. He'll face the Buccaneers in Week 5.

Several Saints play bit roles in victory over Vikings


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Wide receiver Kenny Stills led a contingent of Saints that made minor contributions to their defeat of Minnesota on Sunday.

Stills finished with four catches for 38 yards. Robert Meachen had one reception for 23 yards while backup tight end Benjamin Watson pitched in with a catch for 10 yards.

Little-used running backs Travaris Cadet and Austin Johnson added nine and two yards on the ground, respectively.


Travaris Cadet, Benjamin Watson hardly factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet and tight end Benjamin Watson each played a minimal role on offense Week 1 at Atlanta. Cadet caught one pass for 5 yards and Watson caught one for no gain.

The Saints visit the Browns in Week 2.


Sean Payton speaks highly of Travaris Cadet


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Saints running back Travaris Cadet has received a lot of work in OTAs as the passing downs back in the offense, much like what Darren Sproles did. ESPN has noticed that Cadet has flashed speed and elusiveness, and it could lead to a large role this season

While Cadet has spoken of being a complete player, he has realized that this is "an opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime." Coach Sean Payton is impressed with what he's seen even though Cadet was originally tailored for a rushing role when he first joined the team. 

"He's a guy with good hands, he's sudden with a good change of direction. And I think that is one of the things we'll look for in this upcoming training camp," Payton said. "He's been able to do a lot of the things we've asked Darren to do in the passing game. You just keep building on that. He's a good young talent."


Travaris Cadet gets a lot of work Thursday


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) The Saints used Travaris Cadet a bunch during OTA workouts on Thursday. According to ESPN, Cadet played a lot on rushing plays as well as passing plays, showing off his speed and elusiveness. While the network believes Cadet is still fourth on the depth chart, they also think he could end up being a replacement for Darren Sproles. Coach Sean Payton suggested as much this offseason.  

Cadet has seven catches for 49 yards and a touchdown over two seasons. 


Travaris Cadet positioned to be Darren Sproles' replacement?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2014) Saints coach Sean Payton kicked off Wednesday's meeting with the media at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando by saying there were a number of ways to replace Darren Sproles. Then he went on to talk about only one: With Travaris Cadet

"Cadet is a player who has played in that role," Payton said. " ... I don't think you ever replace specifically a skill set like Darren's. It's unique and it's different than really our league's seen in a while for a player like his stature. But with regards to his touches, with regards to opportunities, Travaris is a guy that has played and is now going into his third year."

Payton liked Cadet's skill set to Sproles'.

"He's got very good ball skills," Payton continued. "He's a guy that can run the routes in that tree when you talk about a choice route, when you talk about an option. He can play from in the backfield but he can play from extended positions. That doesn't necessarily mean he's a wide receiver, just means he's a running back in space. So I think he's someone that is very comfortable in that role and I think he can run. I know his first season, '12, he kind of came to camp as a receiver and then we switched him back into running back. But he's a utility player that has gotten better at not just at the core skill sets of being a runner but is very comfortable when it comes to being a receiver out of the backfield." 

Payton further punctuated the discussion by saying he wasn't planning to be any more run-heavy this year than in the past. Since Sproles joines the Saints their running backs have caught at least 140 passes in each of the last three years. 


Travaris Cadet could see bigger role next season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) After two years with the Saints, running back Travaris Cadet has touched the ball just eight times total on offense. With the loss of Darren Sproles this offseason, that numbers should go up next season, as coach Sean Payton told Cox Sports TV Tuesday.

Sproles' exit leaves behind a pretty big hole in the offense, as he picked up 71 receptions and 53 carries in 15 games a year ago. The Saints have three other running backs in house to work into the offense, however, so Cadet is unlikely to take on all of Sproles' touches. 


Seven healthy scratches on Saints inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Only healthy scratches are included in the inactive list submitted by the Saints on Sunday. They are safety Isa Abdul-Quddus, running back Travaris Cadet, linebacker Keyunta Dawson, cornerback Terrence Frederick , quarterback Ryan Griffin, defensive end Tom Johnson and wideout Nick Toon.

(12/22/2013) The Saints have listed DE Tom Johnson, OLB Keyunta Dawson, S Rafael Bush, RB Travaris Cadet, WR Nick Toon, TE Josh Hill and QB Ryan Griffin as inactive Week 16 against the Panthers.

Cadet was listed as probable on the team's injury report entering the game, but will not go. Dawson and Hill were questionable. Bush was listed as doubtful.
