Travaris Cadet RB NO 4 Months
The New Orleans Times-Picayune believes Saints second-year RB Travaris Cadet may be on the roster bubble.
Cadet is competing with undrafted rookie Khiry Robinson for the No. 4 running back job. After a strong rookie preseason, Cadet has struggled mightily through two exhibition games this year. He's rushed for just 35 yards on 18 carries and has fumbled twice. Robinson has 102 yards on the ground. Cadet has a versatile skill set, but he's off the re-draft fantasy radar.

Saints RB Travaris Cadet worked with the third-team offense at OTAs.
Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles shared first-team reps. Mark Ingram handled second-team work, and Cadet was the third-team tailback. Instead of shuttling between receiver and tailback as he did under Pete Carmichael last year, Cadet is working as a full-time running back. He's a deep sleeper in PPR leagues.

Saints RB Travaris Cadet anticipates handling most of the team's return duties with Darren Sproles (fractured hand) out indefinitely.
"Right now, pretty much," Cadet said. "But we may have a little change here and there depending on how the game is going. I'll leave that up to Coach." Cadet is listed as Sproles' direct backup on both kickoff and punt returns. He also operated in Sproles' exact role with the second-team offense in preseason games. Return-yardage and deep leaguers should add Cadet immediately.
