SMITTY: It’s tough to say who will benefit more from Pierre Thomas’ absence, but clearly both Khiry Robinson and Mark Ingram will see an uptick in touches with this news. Both runners are boom or bust plays each week, as you just don’t know which will get more run. Plus, it seems like the Saints want to mix in some Travaris Cadet here and there, so the situation is still very cloudy even with Thomas’ injury. If you breakdown last week’s usage, Ingram commanded the early-down work, and Robinson dropped down to three rushes compared to Ingram’s 10. Our guess is that Ingram will benefit most, especially now that he is a week healthier, but anything can happen due to flow of game/hot hands. Looking for Week 8 Power Rankings?
