|As an undrafted free agent, Khiry Robinson put himself into a position to garner more carries late last season when he scored his first career touchdown and averaged 4.6 yards per carry during the Saints' final three games of the year. Likely to begin the season No. three on the depth chart this season, Robinson will have limited fantasy value when the season opens barring an injury to Pierre Thomas or Mark Ingram during training camp. Fantasy owners seeking a potential lotto ticket, however, will likely see Robinson as a worthy upside option. If he is able to somehow convince the Saints to give him a dozen carries per game he will have value as a flex option.
Comment: If the Saints run the ball a bit more this season, Robinson will be the reason why.

|New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected to miss about a month with a hand injury he suffered Sunday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Ingram was off to a good start this season rushing for 143 yards on 24 carries with 3 TDs over the first two weeks. Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas will likely see their roles increased.
|Pierre Thomas expects changes to his role|
Currently lining up as Saints' No. 3 RB
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 21, 6:00 pm
|There has been much speculation about what New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas' role would be this season and the eighth-year veteran said Wednesday night he knows things are going to be different in 2014.
Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson both are expected to see their roles increase this season and Thomas figured to become the No. 3 back in the offense. However, Thomas doesn't plan on going quietly. While mentioning that coaches said his role will change this upcoming season, Thomas said he isn't going down without a fight. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)|
FFToday's Take: The Saints haven't exactly tipped their hand in regards to Thomas' new role as he has yet to log a touch in the preseason. It seems likely he will come close to matching his passing-game contributions in light of Darren Sproles' departure, although Robinson's emergence will probably cap his snaps in the running game.
