While Saints offensive weapon Darren Sproles didn't find the end zone on Sunday, he was one of Drew Brees' favorite targets in the passing game with 6 catches for 88 yards. Sproles caught everything thrown his way and tied Marques Colston with six targets. Only tight end Jimmy Graham was targeted more with seven looks on the day. Sproles added eight carries for 22 yards in the run game. He also handled the return duties but struggled in punt returns.
Fantasy impact: Sproles should be a PPR league dream this year if his Week 1 targets hold up and he finds the end zone. The failure to get into the end zone in Week 1 is of course disappointing but there is every reason to believe that will happen soon. While Sproles' rushing numbers aren't spectacular the ability to move him around and line him up in a variety of ways makes him dangerous. His value lies best in PPR leagues but he should also be considered in deeper leagues as a flex option as well.
