Darren Sproles injury update: Probable and should be starting in all fantasy leagues

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Darren Sproles is probable for Week 8 against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints RB/WR Darren Sproles (not injury related) is officially listed as probable for Sunday Night Football. Sproles was excused from practice on Wednesday and Thursday to tend to an illness in the family, but he returned to full participation on Friday. There is no danger of him missing the game.

The dual threat back/receiver has 22 carries for 118 yards, and 32 receptions for 267 yards and three TDs.

Fantasy Impact: There's no injury concern here, and we hope all is well with his family. Sproles may not reach the record heights of last season, but he remains one of the most flexible fantasy players out there, and is a PPR stud.

The Broncos/Saints game promises to be a shootout, and Sproles should be a big part of it. Start him as you normally would.
