Fantasy owners should look for big things from Saints RB Pierre Thomas. RB Reggie Bush didn’t make the trip to Tampa Bay for today’s game against the Buccaneers. Meaning that Thomas is a solid option against the Buccaneers’ weak run defense.
RB Mike Bell also becomes more attractive in all leagues. He now has flex starter value in Week 11.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Texans RB Steve Slaton has regained the top spot on the depth chart. That makes him a much safer play in fantasy leagues as a No. 2 back.
He’ll still share some carries with RB Ryan Moats, but Slaton is clearly the more talented runner.
He’s also the better fantasy option of the duo on Monday night.
