Travaris Cadet caught 6-of-6 targets for 77 yards in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Falcons, adding three rushes for six additional yards.
Claimed off waivers two weeks ago, Cadet was infinitely more productive than C.J. Spiller in two games as the Saints' passing-down back. If nothing else, it puts him in the Saints' thoughts for 2016. One month shy of his 27th birthday, Cadet is a last-man-on-the-bench type in Dynasty leagues, at best. Jan 3 - 6:37 PM

Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-5 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

He added a six-yard rush. Cadet was wide open on his 44-yard score after two Jags defenders ran into each other, but was still an obvious improvement on C.J. Spiller. Cadet should be active over Spiller again in Week 17 against the Falcons.

Saints claimed RB Travaris Cadet off waivers from the 49ers.

The Saints are bringing back Cadet with Mark Ingram out for the year. He'll back up C.J. Spiller on pass downs. T.J. Graham was waived in a corresponding move.

49ers waived RB Travaris Cadet.

Cadet was in line to form a committee with Kendall Gaskins if Shaun Draughn (knee) misses Sunday's game against the Lions, but the 49ers have decided they prefer DuJuan Harris. If you had a desperation waiver claim out on Cadet, be sure to cancel it.

49ers RB Travaris Cadet rushed twice for four yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to Cincinnati.

Although Cadet took over as the 49ers' lead back after Shaun Draughn (knee) exited, it was really a three-way rotation that also involved Kendall Gaskins and FB Bruce Miller. If Draughn is unable to play in Week 16 against the Lions, expect very little fantasy value to come from the 49ers' backfield.

49ers signed RB Travaris Cadet.

Cadet spent the offseason with the Patriots, and there was some speculation he could reunite with New England following the season-ending injury to Dion Lewis. A passing-down specialist, Cadet will take the roster spot and potential role of Pierre Thomas.

Free agent RB Travaris Cadet worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Patriots waived RB Travaris Cadet.

The Patriots needed to make room on the roster for linebacker Jon Bostic. Cadet played just two snaps for New England, catching one pass for two yards. The Patriots will go with a backfield of LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis, Brandon Bolden and James White going forward.

Travaris Cadet is active for Week 2 against the Bills.

He sat out last week because of a hamstring injury. Cadet has a decent set of mitts (38 catches for New Orleans last year) but it will be tough for the Patriots to find work for him behind starter LeGarrette Blount and third-down back Dion Lewis. He's not a fantasy option.

Travaris Cadet (hamstring) is probable for Week 2 against Buffalo.

Cadet could be a healthy scratch with LeGarrette Blount returning. Dion Lewis will remain New England's pass-down back.

Travaris Cadet (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 2.

Cadet practiced in full last week, but was held out of the opener. With LeGarrette Blount returning, Cadet isn’t a lock to be active against Buffalo.

Patriots declared RB Travaris Cadet, OL Ryan Wendell, DE Trey Flowers, S Tavon Wilson, DT Khyri Thornton, DL Rufus Johnson and CB Justin Coleman inactive for Week 1 against the Steelers.

With Wendell sidelined, UDFA David Andrews appears to be the starting center. Wendell wasn't on the injury report. The Patriots' backfield will be some mix of Dion Lewis, Brandon Bolden and James White.

Travaris Cadet (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's NFL opener against Pittsburgh.

Cadet was listed as a "full" participant in practice all week, which should mean he's healthy enough to play. He may not dress for the game, however, if he's buried on the depth chart. Cadet was injured almost all of camp.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss believes RB Travaris Cadet will not make the final roster.

Cadet was in the third-down running back battle early in camp, but a hamstring injury cost him the first three preseason games. With Dion Lewis shining, Cadet will struggle to make a push even if he can get healthy in time for the final game.

According to ESPN Boston, Travaris Cadet's pass protection "remains a wild card" at early-camp practices.

Beat writer Mike Reiss notes that Cadet's ability to improve in this area "will be a key for how big of a role he might fill on offense." Practice watchers have witnessed Cadet playing key roles in multiple special teams phases at Patriots camp, a good sign for his chances of making the 53-man roster. Cadet remains in a dogfight with James White for passing-back duties.
