RB - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Travaris Cadet got into the mix in the Jets’ Week 6 home division loss against the New England Patriots, as he grabbed three catches for 26 yards with a long catch of 13 yards. Cadet also managed to rush for three yards on just one carry in the loss.
Cadet got some burn in this game, and actually played well as a receiver out of the backfield. But don’t expect this type of production every week, as he is the fourth RB on the depth chart and needs an injury or two to really be considered relevant for fantasy purposes. Leave Cadet on the waiver wire and don’t overthink this one. Also, do not play him in any DFS contests.
Travaris Cadet did not log a snap during Sunday’s Week 5 road win against the lowly Cleveland Browns. But that is sure to change with the injuries to Bilal Powell (calf) and Matt Forte (toe).
Cadet will become busier behind Elijah McGuire in the event that Powell and Forte cannot get on the field next week. And the Jets will surely need him, as McGuire and Cadet are officially the only healthy running backs on the team right now. But with all of this being said, barring an injury to McGuire, Cadet has no real fantasy value at this time. Leave him on the waiver wire, and stay away from him in DFS contests, too.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New York Jets have signed running back Travaris Cadet on Wednesday.
Cadet, formerly of the Saints, signed with the Jets on Wednesday. With Matt Forte expected to be sidelined at least Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, the Jets had a void at running back. However, despite the signing, his fantasy value should remain at a minimum for Week 4. Bilal Powell is the favorite to lead New York's backfield while Forte is out.
NFL reporter Aaron Wilson is reporting the New Orleans Saints have waived RB Travaris Cadet.
With the additions of Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara to the Saints' backfield this offseason, Cadet became expendable. Kamara will step into Cadet's role as the team's primary receiver out of the backfield and will see most fantasy value in PPR scoring formats, while Mark Ingram and Peterson handle the early down work. Even with a three-headed monster game plan, all three of the aforementioned rushers could maintain quality fantasy value in 2017.
The New Orleans Saints have re-signed running back Travaris Cadet.
Cadet, a five-year veteran whose spent his entire career in New Orleans, re-signed with the Saints Wednesday. The speedy rusher, who specializes in his pass-catching ability, set career marks in receiving last season. He accumulated 40 receptions for 281 yards and four touchdowns while playing in 15 games, primarily behind Tim Hightower and Mark Ingram. If Hightower, who is an unsigned free agent, leaves the Saints, Cadet could be in line for an expanded role in 2017.
