New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas rushed 10 times for 73 yards and added 5 receptions for 57 yards Thursday, Nov. 21 in a 17-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Thomas had both the opportunity -- with injured fellow RB Darren Sproles inactive -- and a favorable matchup against a leaky Atlanta defense to make some fantasy noise, and he came through with his best total-yardage output of the season. The only thing missing was a touchdown, but those will come if Thomas keeps running with the power and determination he showed Thursday night.

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas is listed as the starting running back on the team's first depth chart.
Huddle Up: This reaffirms what we already know: Pierre Thomas is better than Mark Ingram. The question is whether the Saints will still be too stubborn to give Thomas more playing time in the regular season—Ingram was a first-round pick, after all—and Thomas doesn't exactly have the best track record in terms of health. If his ADP spikes, however, he won't be a great value—injury concerns and sharing the rock with Ingram and Darren Sproles mitigate his value.

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas said head coach Sean Payton wants more focus on the running game this season. 'There's going to be more focus this year on that ground game than any year. He said we've got to get back to running the ball, having 100-yard games non-stop. I can't wait. I'm excited and I know everybody else is excited,' Payton said.
Huddle Up: The Saints were a pass-first team with a four-headed RBBC in 2012, but with Chris Ivory traded to the Jets, it makes things more manageable fantasy-wise with Thomas and Mark Ingram as the top 2 RBs and Darren Sproles once again returning as the pass-catching threat out of the backfield.

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: While Mark Ingram has been the Saints' top rusher of late, Thomas is coming off his best receiving game (7-61, TD) of the season. It's early in the week, so see if the RB is able to give it a go over the next few days.

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Mark Ingram was getting some love as a sneaky option with Thomas injured, but it looks like the latter will be active this week.
