Pierre Thomas did not practice Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

Chris Graythen

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas did not practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas did not practice on Wednesday, via Larry Holder. The Saints tailback landed on the team's injury report again with a bothered knee.

He was not held out of last week's game and should be good to go this weekend against the Carolina Panthers. He should be available in the team's attack-by-committee.

Fantasy Analysis: In terms of fantasy, Pierre Thomas would have a favorable match-up against the Panthers. However, Thomas is one of many backs in the Saints backfield and would be a risk play. Most fantasy players like to avoid the backfields of these two teams because of the way they share carries.

Though Thomas will play, he does not have much value. Outside of Darren Sproles, do your best to avoid Saints RBs in the future.
