Cadet caught five passes on six targets for 53 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet had been dealing with a nagging toe injury the last few weeks, but with Mark Ingram limited by his own toe injury and the Saints trailing the entire game, Cadet played 39 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps in Week 13. In doing so, Cadet had arguably his best statistical game of the season. Still, Cadet has only two carries on the season and with Ingram and Tim Hightower both ahead of him on the depth chart, he's really only an option in deeper PPR leagues.

Cadet (toe) is officially active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt versus the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet will thus join backfield mate Mark Ingram as Saints backs who are overcoming questionable designations this week. He'll be expected to fulfill his usual role as a speedy checkdown option for Drew Brees.

Cadet (toe) is questionable to play Sunday against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet missed last week's matchup with the Panthers due to the same toe injury. Fellow tailback Mark Ingram (concussion) is also questionable to play and Daniel Lasco (hamstring) has already been ruled, potentially leaving only Tim Hightower and Marcus Murphy as the Saints' only healthy options.

Cadet is inactive for Thursday's game against the Panthers due to a toe injury.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet's absence likely won't have a great impact on the Saints offense as he's the teams No. 3 or No. 4 option in the backfield. Look for Marcus Murphy to the final option behind Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower in Week 11.

Cadet gained seven yards on two receptions on four targets in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. He did not record a carry.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet was held without a catch until the fourth quarter, when he made a few plays with the Saints facing a double-digit deficit. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram led the Saints' backfield with four receptions and actually caught a three-yard touchdown on the first drive of the second half. Cadet doesn't get many carries -- he has only two rushing attempts all season -- and while he should continue to see some looks in the passing game, he's really only an option in deeper PPR leagues.

Cadet caught four passes on five targets for 27 yards in Sunday's game against the Panthers. He also had one carry for three yards.

EDGE Analysis

Mark Ingram once again dominated the running back workload -- 39 of the Saints' 73 offensive snaps according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune -- but Cadet was next in line with 27 snaps. Meanwhile, Tim Hightower did not see the field and rookie Daniel Lasco played only five snaps. Should Ingram be injured, it's still unlikely that Cadet would be the primary ball carrier, but he's clearly the Saints' preferred receiving option out of the backfield, which gives him some value in deeper PPR leagues.

Cadet caught six passes on six targets for 32 yards in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet had a nice 25-yard grab down the sideline, but his other five catches only went for a total of seven yards, as he was often merely a checkdown option for Drew Brees. With 11 receptions through three games, Cadet has some utility in deeper PPR leagues, but he has only one carry this year and his lack of involvement in the running game significantly limits his upside.

Cadet caught two passes on three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He also returned two kickoffs for 24 total yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet did not receive a carry, and the one target he did not catch was a killer of a drop late in the fourth quarter deep in Giants' territory. Cadet nonetheless continues to see solid playing time -- he played 31 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps in New York, reports Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune -- as it's clear the Saints are scaling back Mark Ingram's playing time after another injury-plagued season in 2015. While Tim Hightower would likely absorb most of the carries if Ingram were to miss time again, Cadet should continue to work as the Saints' top backfield receiving option, which gives him some utility in deeper PPR leagues.

Cadet caught three passes on seven targets for 14 yards, including a two-yard touchdown reception, in Sunday's season opening loss to the Raiders. He played 26 of the Saints' 69 offensive snaps (38%), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

EDGE Analysis

With C.J. Spiller a healthy inactive in Week 1, Cadet unexpectedly saw significant playing time in the opener. In fact, he largely out-snapped Mark Ingram's presumed backup, Tim Hightower, 26-10 and was on the field for only three fewer plays than Ingram himself. The Saints clearly trust Cadet as a receiver out of the backfield -- as evidenced by his fourth-quarter touchdown -- and with Ingram's checkered injury history, the team may continue to use Cadet as a third-down back to keep Ingram fresh. Although the reasons behind Spiller's Week 1 benching are unknown, Cadet may be worth an add in deeper fantasy leagues, particularly those using PPR scoring.

The Saints re-signed Cadet on Monday, Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Along with the Saints, Cadet played for the Patriots and 49ers last season. He re-signed with New Orleans in March only to be released as the team made its final cuts over the weekend. However, the team opted to re-sign him on Monday, and he will likely add running back depth and play a special teams role heading into the season.
