Friday Fantasy Football Fix: New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles Out
New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured hand. Sproles could be out several games but his timetable is uncertain.
Pierre Thomas figures to see the biggest increase in carries with Sproles out this week. Mark Ingram could see a couple more touches as well, but he is a completely different type of runner. If you have Sproles on your fantasy team sit him this week and if you have Thomas give him the start week nine.
