Darren Sproles has 10 touches and a score, helps fantasy owners

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles touched the ball 10 times on Sunday and scored. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles was limited but productive versus the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The electric tailback had only 5 carries for 20 yards, but had an additional 5 receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown. The Saints still fell to the Pack, but Sproles made a nice case for himself going forward.

Fantasy Analysis: Sproles received the second most carries, having four less than running back Pierre Thomas (9). Sproles is easily the more dynamic playmaker, and is a major factor when this offense is rolling on all cylinders. As an option out of the backfield, Sproles is an elite specimen of a rare breed. He has game-breaking ability which makes him a highly coveted fantasy player, but he is yet to really show his worth this season. Sproles should get more involved as the season progresses, but he remains a fantasy must-start.
