Found November 11, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Saints interim coach Joe Vitt said he wants to get his running backs more involved in the offense to protect the team's bad defense. SOURCE: Ed WerderFantasy Spin:New Orleans is a pass-first team but we saw a more balanced approach in Week 9 against the Eagles. Chris Ivory, Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas combined for 23 carries, 136 yards (5.9 ypc) and a touchdown in the game. All three are risky flex plays in Week 10 against the Falcons but Thomas is probably the best option. He's the best receiver and comes into Sunday's game with 500 yards rushing and five touchdowns on 100 carries and 33 receptions for 216 yards and two touchdowns in 10 career games against Atlanta.
