Fantasy Analysis
There are concerns about Thomas' usage. During the last three weeks, he averaged only 7.0 combo touches and 35 combo yards per game with one touchdown scored. On top of that, Tavaris Cadet amassed six receptions for 59 yards while operating as the preferred passing back over Thomas during the Saints' Week 4 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Nobody knows for sure if Cadet will continue to cut into Thomas' touches. Downgrade him to low-end flex status and consider sitting him for a better option. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points to the running back position.
Rushing: 30 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 33 Yards, 0 TD.

After being dangled as trade bait, Thomas was ultimately brought back by the Saints after reworking his contract and taking a slight pay cut. He is a jack-of-all-trades option out of the backfield Unfortunately, Thomas has always been part of the frustrating running back by committee approach that New Orleans employs and will be in the same situation again in 2014. Thomas is likely to step into a more prominent role in the passing game with Darren Sproles now in Philadelphia, but will see a dip in his rushing attempts with younger options Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson seeing increased carries. Thomas is a late-round fantasy draft option with flex potential and a bit more value in PPR formats.

Rushing: 390 Yards, 3 TD.
Receiving: 68 Receptions, 515 Yards, 2 TD.
