Cadet gained 19 yards on four carries and another 281 yards on 40 receptions in 2016. He also scored four touchdowns, including one in each of the season's final three games, and managed 144 yards on 10 kickoff returns.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet didn't offer much as a ball carrier, but he once again excelled as a receiver and even chipped in as a kickoff returner too. The fifth-year pro is not a particularly exciting fantasy asset -- outside of deeper PPR leagues -- but the Saints value his contributions. Cadet is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but it would be surprising to see him leave New Orleans after unsuccessful stints in New England and San Francisco in 2015.

Cadet caught two passes for 16 yards, including a 11-yard touchdown, in Saturday's win against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower dominated the running-back workload, but Cadet made the most of his limited opportunities count, hauling in both of his targets. Although Cadet has now caught a touchdown in back-to-back weeks, the receiving back is still only an option in deeper PPR leagues. The Saints will face the Falcons in Week 17.

Cadet caught all five of his targets for 30 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown, and added another 16 yards on one carry in Sunday's win against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet dropped what would have been a short touchdown last week, but he made up for it in Week 15 with a tremendous individual effort on his first-quarter score. After a quiet stretch during the middle of the season, the Saints best receiving back has come alive of late, recording at least four receptions and 30 yards in each of his last three games. Cadet will look to stay productive next week at home against Tampa Bay.

Cadet lost a yard on his only carry but gained 30 yards on four receptions in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Cadet doesn't see many carries -- his tote in Tampa Bay was only his third of the season -- but he continues to serve as the Saints' third-down back. Because he doesn't see much volume, the fifth-year pro isn't a viable option in many fantasy leagues, but he may still be a source for low-end production in deeper PPR leagues.

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.
