It looks like Bell is the direct backup for Reggie Bush and is still going to see plenty of work. Mikel looks like the odd man out, although he will probably see work in short yardage and goal line.
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Pierre is a great RB on the wrong offense. Thomas has 80 Yards/1 TD with a handful of receptions written all over him. Though those numbers are hard to come by when you have to compete with Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles itching for PT every single snap.
Joique certantily had his moments in 2012. He stole a Week 1 TD away from Kevin Smith, and he looked much better than Mikel Leshoure for a majority of the games they played together. In 2013, Bell now watches Reggie Bush take the role that he once dreamed of. Bell is still playing behind Leshoure, and it would take a Reggie injury for Bell to be relevant.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Thomas was also pretty useless in the Saints' backfield a year ago. May want to just avoid any Saints RB not named Darren Sproles.
