Cadet gained 24 yards on four carries and 42 yards on four receptions (five targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet was surprisingly involved with the first-team offense, even though Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller were also busy. The Saints featured their running backs in Friday's gameplan, and while Cadet made the most of his touches, he did nearly lose a fumble at the end of a long gain. He won't surpass Spiller as the top passing-down back, but Cadet's roster odds did improve Friday when Marcus Murphy suffered a concussion, NOLA.com reports. Cadet and Murphy are competing for the No. 4 running back job -- a role that might include work in the return game and occasional offensive snaps on passing downs.

Cadet caught one pass for nine yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet is in a tight battle for a roster spot and is currently not projected to make the Saints' final 53-man roster, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Marcus Murphy's recent struggles with fumbles may open the door for Cadet, but without a clear path to playing time on a crowded Saints' depth chart, Cadet should only be viewed as an option in very deep PPR leagues.

Cadet gained 14 yards on three carries and seven yards on one reception (one target) in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Mostly a passing-down specialist, Cadet is competing with Marcus Murphy and Daniel Lasco for what will likely be one roster spot. Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller appear figure to occupy the top three spots.

Cadet has agreed to a one-year deal with the Saints, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.

EDGE Analysis

A passing-down specialist, Cadet was released by the Patriots and 49ers during the 2015 season, eventually landing back in New Orleans where he spent the first three seasons of his career. He may compete for a third-down role, but he's unlikely to be a featured part of the Saints offense.

In two games with the Saints, Cadet gained 12 yards on four carries and added nine receptions for 148 yards and a touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

After suffering a rash of injuries to end the season, the Saints re-signed Cadet, who had appeared in games with both the Patriots and 49ers this season. Cadet had spent the first three seasons of his career with the Saints, before signing in New England this offseason. While he's not much of a runner, Cadet's chops as a pass-catching threat quickly re-surfaced in his two games back with the Saints. It remains to be seen, however, whether Cadet will be back with the Saints in 2016, as he is once again a free agent this offseason.

Cadet caught three of five targets for 69 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown, in Sunday's 37-28 win over the Jaguars. He had just one carry for six yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet was claimed off waivers during the week, returning to his former team, and made an impact in Sunday's win. Meanwhile, Tim Hightower continued to amaze, rushing for 122 yards on 27 carries with two touchdowns. With C.J. Spiller a healthy scratch Sunday, expect Cadet to serve as the pass-catching back in the season finale next week at Atlanta.

The Saints have claimed Cadet off waivers from the 49ers, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Khiry Robinson, Mark Ingram and Marcus Murphy all on IR, Cadet gives the Saints some added backfield depth behind Tim Hightower, C.J. Spiller and Kendall Hunter.

Cadet was released by the 49ers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After Shaun Draughn (knee) was forced from Sunday's loss to the Bengals due to an injury, it's somewhat surprising that Cadet has been let go. Nonetheless, the 49ers have apparently been unimpressed, as they'll replace Cadet on the roster with fellow running back DuJuan Harris.

Cadet only ran the ball twice for four yards, but he reeled in four catches for 32 yards in the loss to the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Starter Shaun Draughn (knee) went down in the first half, so the 49ers deployed a combination of Kendall Gaskins and Cadet in the second half. If Draughn has to miss any time, the team would likely deploy a similar timeshare against the Lions. While Gaskins' attributes are better suited for early-down work, Cadet would be the better option to use on passing downs, and the more desirable play in PPR formats.

Cadet received his first touches as a 49er on Sunday, rushing three times for six yards and catching one of his two targets for another six yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet was brought on to serve as a pass-catching back for the 49ers, but he hasn't been utilized at all since Carlos Hyde (foot) has been sidelined. While Sunday's usage could indicate that OC Geep Chryst believes that Cadet is finally ready for that role, he still won't see nearly as many touches as starter Shaun Draughn.
