Travaris Cadet caught 4-of-5 targets for 27 yards in the Saints' Week 6 win over the Panthers.
It's a standard day at the office for the Saints' pass-game specialist out of the backfield. He's not much of a fantasy factor outside of deep PPR leagues. Oct 16 - 7:28 PM

Travaris Cadet caught 6-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Cadet didn't register a carry. The Falcons have long been dreadful at covering opposing running backs out of the backfield, and Cadet whipped them all night in the flats and on wheel routes. He also had a long first-quarter catch called back on a weak offensive pass interference penalty. Cadet has a role in the Saints' pass game and is worth owning in deeper PPR leagues. He gets another strong matchup Week 4 at San Diego. Heading into Monday, the Chargers had allowed the most catches for the third-most yards to opposing running backs this season.

Saints RB Travaris Cadet caught 3-of-7 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

He "added" a one-yard rush. Cadet was the Saints' preferred passing-down back, drawing four more looks than Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower combined. It's a role that could lead to PPR value if Cadet keeps it, but it's too early in the year to make that judgment.
Sep 11 - 6:36 PM

Saints released RB Travaris Cadet.

C.J. Spiller's resurgence and Marcus Murphy's special teams skills likely sealed Cadet's fate. He could be an option again once Spiller inevitably fails to live up to his name.
Sep 3 - 7:32 PM

Saints RB Travaris Cadet rushed four times for 24 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 42 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

Cadet was the No. 3 back to enter, behind Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller and ahead of Tim Hightower. Cadet is the Saints' No. 2 passing-down back behind Spiller. Rookie Daniel Lasco is on the outside looking in for a roster spot.
Aug 26 - 11:59 PM

Saints re-signed RB Travaris Cadet to a one-year, $760,000 contract.

A pure pass catcher, Cadet's 2015 was split up between the Saints, 49ers and Patriots. His odds of cracking the 53-man roster are probably less than 50-50.
Mar 10 - 12:20 PM

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.

The Jets are likely just updating their emergency list during their bye week. Cadet was waived by the Patriots last week.
Tue, Oct 6, 2015 06:03:00 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 29, 2015 04:15:00 PM

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.
