Pierre Thomas RB NO Nov 02 '1228 Comments

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune confirms Pierre Thomas is likely to see the biggest increase in touches and production following Darren Sproles' hand fracture.

Triplett expects a "little" more action for Mark Ingram, and Chris Ivory may now be active on game days. We'd add that UDFA Travaris Cadet can do some of the same things Sproles did in the passing game, although he's not nearly as explosive a football player. Thomas' value skyrockets from low-end flex option to locked-in RB2/flex with legitimate RB1 scoring potential in a high-powered offense, though. He needs to be in lineups for Week 9 against Philly.

do your own fantasy research. stop asking for fantasy advice in these player updates. its pathetic. stand on your own two feet.

Tommeltot Nov 03 '12

true... but it is so they can feel better that they dint make the choice them self.

Shawn-DeLoach Nov 03 '12

some of these people are little kids.... your just as bad getting mad at them over the computer

flyingwelindas Nov 03 '12

i agree....im looking for opinions under the updates not questions on who to start

TradeVonMartin Nov 04 '12

hey everyone! look at me! im mad!

you twat.

Yeah dude just relax if it makes the guy feel better then let him do it. Quite frankly you going off on people on player updates is more annoying than people asking advice. These comment sections are made for people to talk about football so just stick to that and let people ask for others opinion if they want

I have Thomas in my RB slot but who should I put in my flex slot: Law Firm or Mike Williams? I also have Torrey and Steve Smith as my WR slots, but have Megatron sitting out this week because of the matchups. Need a little help...

Rookie

Ahmad Bradshaw or Pierre Thomas? I have Sproles but since he is out, I have to start one of the two. Just not sure about Bradshaw and his ongoing injury.

rashad jennings or thomas

Jennings Detroit's run d is god awful and they are banged up plus playing on the road.

Danimal17 Nov 03 '12

Detroit has given up the 9th fewest scrimmage yards to opposing backs and have already played against the likes of Gore, Lynch, Forte, A.P., and McKoy. I wouldn't call that run D god awful. It is easy to do.... because the Lions have been bad for so long on D, but this year what is killing them is turnovers and special teams.

dirtydugan Nov 03 '12

The niners ran the same tight end chip play on the lions and ran all over them and marshawn busted a 77 yard td on them as for the other 3 they have had a so so year. Playing against a lions d is a gift from the fantasy gods

Thomas or Leshoure?

Leshoure's matchup looks pretty good but I'm iffy on the "injury" he has

dirtydugan Nov 03 '12

I have the same issue and I went Thomas

RobertoP Nov 03 '12

Also note that Bell is starting to get touches, to the point where the Detrit backfield becoming a RBBC. Thomas is a clear pick over almost anyone lately anyway.

MrBones Nov 03 '12

agree with both of you, I decided to start Thomas and see what Detroit does this week.

amybee Nov 04 '12

should have gone leshoure

MrBones Nov 04 '12

Big time. 70 yards is weak but the 3 TDs argh...didn't see that coming

flyingwelindas Nov 04 '12

if you get 70 yards for 16 weeks you get 1120 yards which is far from weak. are you being dishonest again abe???

MrBones Nov 04 '12

Honestly elitist I suppose

Kokopelli Nov 02 '12

Thomas or Spiller?

JamesP Nov 02 '12

I have the same option. I'm going w Thomas.
