Player Notes

  • Dwayne Washington could see more work
    ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein said "don't be surprised" if Dwayne Washington gets more work this week against the Bears.

    Advice: Coach Jim Caldwell blamed the line for Theo Riddick's struggles against the Packers, so they clearly have not given up the idea a career 3-YPC back handling the early-down work. Still, Washington was notably better as a runner against the Packers, and he should take on a bigger role soon enough. He already matched Riddick with 10 carries last week. Washington will be an upside FLEX play against the Bears. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • Tim Hightower gets three carries in MNF loss
    Tim Hightower rushed three times for 19 yards in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Hightower got one series mostly to himself, but Mark Ingram otherwise dominated all the early-down work with 107 total yards and one score on 19 touches. Hightower will only come into play if Ingram gets hurt. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm

  • Travaris Cadet catches six passes in Week 3
    Travaris Cadet caught 6-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

    Advice: Cadet didn't register a carry. The Falcons have long been dreadful at covering opposing running backs out of the backfield, and Cadet whipped them all night in the flats and on wheel routes. He also had a long first-quarter catch called back on a weak offensive pass interference penalty. Cadet has a role in the Saints' pass game and is worth owning in deeper PPR leagues. He gets another strong matchup Week 4 at San Diego. Heading into Monday, the Chargers had allowed the most catches for the third-most yards to opposing running backs this season.

  • Brandin Cooks kept quiet with 2-13 in loss
    Brandin Cooks caught just 2-of-8 targets for 13 yards in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

    Advice: He was targeted just once after halftime. Even without Willie Snead (toe) in the lineup, Cooks was mostly a non-factor, drawing a lot of Pro Bowl CB Desmond Trufant's coverage. It freed up Coby Fleener (7-109-1) and rookie Michael Thomas (7-71-1) to do a ton of damage in the middle of the field. Cooks will draw another tough matchup with Chargers CB Jason Verrett in Week 4.

  • Justin Hardy catches short TD in Week 3 win
    Justin Hardy caught 2-of-2 targets for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 3 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    Advice: Hardy and Taylor Gabriel rotated in behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but Sanu left at halftime with a shoulder injury, leaving more snaps for the Nos. 3 and 4 guys. Hardy's touchdown came on a shovel pass from four yards away. Even if Sanu sits Week 4, Hardy won't be a recommended play against the Panthers. The running backs and Julio Jones would dominate looks.
