Darren Sproles injury: Fantasy stock is back up with return to practice

Sean Gardner

The Saints backfield should get crowded again this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Saints running back Darren Sproles (hand) returned to practice on Wednesday, getting in a limited session. Coach Joe Vitt said that Sproles 'looked good' and it appears as though he is set to return after missing two weeks with a hand injury.

Initially, the injury looked like it could keep the versatile back out for 4-6 weeks but more positive reports came out almost instantly and they appear to be correct. The Saints take on the Raiders in Week 11.

Fantasy Take: Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory have looked much better as of late, but Sproles is an integral and vital part of this offense. More importantly, they are taking on the Raiders.

As long as he's active, Sproles is a solid bet for an RB2 position.
