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.
