  1. Practiced in full again today and off the injury report! Hopefully he moves past this and gets things rolling. Between weeks 4-14 he'll face the bengals (2x), miami, chargers, cards, and the colts. All rank near the bottom half against the run. Browns 2x in there too who currently rank about mid-pack.
  2. Concerning, personally not overreacting yet. He's not on the injury report and has been practicing in full.
  3. Interesting read on his versatility..
  4. The tweet got deleted but you can confirm below he has not played since week 10. Edit: Twitter link above was corrected and works now
  5. Dez has historical had one of the highest drop rates in the league. It has only continued to get worse year after year. Thomas has caught 70/79 balls, best rate in the league for a WR. In deciding who to target in the Red Zone they are not passing up Thomas for Dez. The Saints just beat the best team in the league utilizing their best weapons. A guy who has now sat out the first 10 weeks of the season and knows very little about this offense is not going to come in and suddenly change something that is firing on all cylinders. He will have a role no doubt, but to think the Saints will now trust Dez over two of the premier players in this league is laughable. It will be business as usual for both Thomas and Kamara.
  6. Golladay obviously gets more looks with fewer mouths to feed. That 27% likely gets spread around.
  7. You called me out for saying Hightower's usage tanked, not Ingram. Ingram went off in week 9 and I said Hightower's usage tanked after that so we're talking about weeks 10-15. Hightower's usage in weeks 8-9: 49 carries, avg of 21.7 carries per game Hightower's usage in weeks 10-15: 54 carries, avg of 9 carries per game (60% less carries)
  8. Hightower had 49 carries in weeks 8 & 9. He had 62 total carries for weeks 10-16.
  9. Hightower took over for a single game after Ingram fumbled early in the first quarter following a costly 4th quarter fumble the previous game. Ingram bounced back with 170+ all-purpose yards the following game. Hightower's usage tanked from that point on. Who do you get your information from? You speak like you know things that no one outside the organization could possibly know.
  10. He fumbled late in the 4th quarter against KC when the game was on the line in 2016. Early in the 1st quarter of the following game he fumbled again and was benched for the remainder of that game. He didn't let the ball touch the ground again the remainder of 2016. He actually had 158 yards rushing on 15 carries the game after being benched. He doesn't need a ton of volume to do damage, especially against TB. He has had a couple of seasons without any fumbles but has avg. 1-2 per season throughout his career. Nothing to lead anyone to say he has a ball protection problem. IMO, the most likely outcome is they talk to him this week and then try to keep doing what has been working the last few weeks. If he drops it again then he'll almost certainly end up on the bench and then who knows what the weekly split will become.
