Darren Sproles injury update: Fantasy value up with probable Week 12 status

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles (hand) is probable for Week 12. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles has been listed as probable for Week 12 with a hand injury. It appears that the Saints' scat back will return in time for the highly anticipated match-up versus the San Francisco 49ers.

He seems to be coming to the end of his injury, having multiple full practice sessions this week. The Saints are going to need him against that fierce 49ers D.

Fantasy Analysis: Sproles will be active for the game versus the 49ers today. The Saints are at home where they usually operate on all cylinders.

This will be a rematch of the NFC Divisional Playoffs; a game where Sproles had 15 receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown. With Drew Brees likely running for his life, Sproles could once again get a lot of looks. However, he will be sharing the load in a crowded backfield. Sproles is a high-end flex today.
