Darren Sproles injury update: Fantasy implications of questionable status

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles is questionable to return from a two week absence on Sunday. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles is listed as questionable against the Oakland Raiders. Sproles missed the Saints' last two games due to a broken hand that required surgery.

Sproles was limited in practice on Wednesday, but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday. With Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram, and Chris Ivory all having done well in the New Orleans backfield recently, it could make for crowded afternoon with the return of Sproles.

Fantasy Impact: New Orleans is always a mess for running backs from a fantasy standpoint, and that will certainly be the case if Sproles is active. The Saints have already said they will use all four running backs if all four are healthy enough to play.

Sproles does most of his damage as a receiver and is particularly effective in PPR leagues, but with three other running backs in the mix nothing is certain. With a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, it makes thing extra difficult.
