Darren Sproles may not play Sunday: Fantasy implications

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Darren Sproles may be a last-minute scratch. We break down the fantasy implications.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles (hand) will not play against the Oakland Raiders Sunday. This news is a complete 180 from previous reports, which expected Sproles to be active. Glazer says that, barring a sudden change of heart, Sproles will sit and let his surgically-repaired hand one more week to heal.

Sproles missed the last two games with surgery on a fractured hand.

Fantasy Impact: Holy contradicting reports, Batman. Adam Schefter and Jason La Confara have previously reported that Sproles will play. Does Glazer know something they don't?

The Saints don't kickoff until 4:05, so we won't know his game status for a couple more hours. But it doesn't look for fantasy owners. I would go ahead and pull him from your lineups now.
