New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said Tuesday, March 25, that RB Travaris Cadet could take on 'a little more of that role' that RB Darren Sproles played in the team's offense over the past three seasons.
Huddle Up: Cadet, who's been limited to 7 receptions and 1 rushing attempt in 2 pro seasons so far, is sure to crop up on a few sleeper lists given his promotion in the Saints' potent offense, but don't forget he still shares the backfield with Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson.

New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet bounced back and forth from tailback to wide receiver last season, but he has been working primarily as a running back with the third team during offseason workouts. Head coach Sean Payton feels Cadet is capable of a pure running back role and the duties that come with it in the blocking scheme.
Huddle Up: Cadet only had 6 total offensive touches in 2012, but now moves up in the RB pecking order with Chris Ivory now playing for the Jets. On the flip side, he still has Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas ahead of him, so keep your fantasy expectations to a bare minimum.
