Is Pierre starting this year?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Precisely why we do not have any one starting workhorse RB. However since you insist... List the starting RBs by year since 2009. You get one per year since you refuse to buy into the we do not have any ...

However since you insist... List the starting RBs by year since 2009. You get one per year since you refuse to buy into the we do not have any 1 starting RB.

Re: Is Pierre starting this year?

I actually have the perfect example for the Saints not having a starting RB.

Anyone ever had PT, Ingram, and Sproles on their Fantasy team and know which one to start?

Any other teams RBs and I know who to start, for a Saints FF team it's a roll of the dice.

Receivers are a little easier but not by far. Other than Graham, there is no way to tell who the target will be until the game is played.

Re: Is Pierre starting this year?

Actually there are only a few teams that have a clear starter at RB. And even many of those teams, if you put their starter in at FF, you'll still get screwed as the starter takes it inside the ten then they yank him and put the bull with bench splinters in his ass to take it in for the score. Who is more important? For the team, it's both of them. Who cares who starts. It's the guys that help us win regardless of where they are at the beginning of the game.

Re: Is Pierre starting this year?

Then why is there even a depth chart at all.

My advice would be to NOT Draft any player on this team not named Brees or maybe Graham. We just spread the ball around too much.




Moore? He was starting to outplay Colston and then Colston got it going mid season on.

Re: Is Pierre starting this year?

The only starters are Brees and the O line, who gets the snaps and who gets the ball in our offense is dictated by what payton see's from the defense during film review

If pierre is going to get a bigger workload he is a good fantasy 3rd RB, if he gets as much carries/catches as he did in 2008 he will put up good numbers

Well yeah Sproles I have sort of been able to figure out when he gets good production. Usually against the teams that can't stop the run or pass he has been productive. Any team that can stop one and decent at times on the other well thats where he wasnt effective. Washington, San Diego, Denver come to mind. But yeah I could never have PT or Ingram on my fantasy team. Though I think against the weakest run defenses such as raiders last year, you could start Ingram. That game Ivory had only 30 something yards. Ingram will get his chances those games. PT you just don't really know.

I look at it a different way. I always start Sproles, I look at stats to see who PT has historically been successful against and start him in those weeks that we play those teams. It has served me very well.

If you have PT and the Saints face a team that is not good against the screen.. Start Pierre.
