The Saints relied on Pierre Thomas to carry the rushing attack against the Falcons, and he did not disappoint. Thomas tallied up 84 yards on 14 carries in Week 13, leading all running backs in workload on Thursday night.
Fantasy Impact: Thomas averaged 6.0 yards per carry, and nearly broke free on several occasions. He was by far the most effective runner on the team, which bodes well for his potential going forward.
It's tough to start Thomas given his lack of consistency. He may be worth a flex play in the right matchup, but you can't bank on Thomas coming through for you when the playoffs start.
