Welcome to fantasy relevance, Mr. Ivory

The absence of Pierre Thomas has been a headache for fantasy owners, as Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory have shared carries in his absence.

Well, Ivory (a sleeper on NFL.com) is making his case to be the back to add if Thomas can’t return in Week 7.

The Tiffin product has rushed for 124 yards and leads the Saints with 13 carries. Julius Jones is second with seven, while Betts has a mere three.

With a game against a bad Browns run defense next on the schedule, Ivory will be a popular name off the waiver wire if Thomas is out again.
