The Saints love Thomas and his versatility. Unfortunately, they didnít like him enough entering last season to not draft Mark Ingram and sign Darren Sproles in free agency. Interestingly, it wasnít the presence of Sproles that caused Thomasí fantasy value to decline (he caught a career-high 50 passes), it was having to split goal line work with Ingram. Removing the 2010 season in which he appeared in just six games, Thomasí touchdowns have declined from 12 to eight to six. He was worth owning as a low end RB2 in 2008 and 2009 while averaging double digit fantasy PPG despite averaging between 10-13 touches per game. That wasnít the case in 2011 though, as his average PPG dropped to 8.4. With Ingram expected to be healthy in 2012 and Sproles coming off a career-season, not much is expected to change for Thomas. Basically, he needs Ingram or Sproles to be out with an injury to be a useful fantasy contributor but the presence of Chris Ivory even clouds that prognosis.
News From The Past 90 Days
Charles officially out for the season-- Mon Oct 12 6:00 pm --
FF Today's Take:Absolutely devastating news for the Chiefs and all of Charles' fantasy owners. Kansas City will likely move on with some form of committee of Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, although both seem to have plenty of support within the Chiefs' front office. West's slashing style resembles Charles' while Davis is more of a pounder that has already shown he has the ability to carry the load. The team also plans on working out Pierre Thomas and Ben Tate.
