New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Oakland Raiders. Sproles has missed the last two games because of a broken hand that required surgery.
Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory have all seen time in the backfield for the Saints and the return of Sproles would make it more crowded. If Sproles is active, offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael said the plan would be to use all four running backs because all four are playing well.
Fantasy Impact: This has turned into a mess for fantasy owners. Sproles is great in PPR leagues, while Thomas, Ivory and Ingram have all recently shown promise. Sproles owners should monitor inactives on Sunday to see if he is playing and then hope for the best.
It would be hard to imagine Sproles resuming full duties but the potential is still there for a good fantasy day, especially in PPR leagues.
