According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles will be out for Sunday's game vs. Atlanta.
OUT: Darren Sproles, Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson. QUEST: Ahmad Bradshaw, Stevie Johnson, Owen Daniels. DOUBTFUL: Percy Harvin.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 9, 2012
For those fantasy owners scrambling to correct their lineup, here are some replacements at the position to take a look at.
Chris Ivory, New Orleans Saints
Ivory went for 10 carries, 48 yards and a touchdown. Atlanta's defense is average, but they aren't good against the rush. They allow 127.5 yards per game, which ranks 25th in the NFL.
Ivory should be a good option on Sunday.
Jacquizz Rodgers, Atlanta Falcons
His speed in the kick-return game is lethal, and he can change any game with the blink of an eye. Rodgers doesn't receive many carries from the backfield, but he did get eight two weeks ago against Philadelphia.
When he received those carries, he rushed for 60 yards.
Not my No. 1 choice as a sleeper, but if you feel like rolling the dice, taking a chance on Rodgers makes sense.
Joique Bell, Detroit Lions
Minnesota allows 117.3 yards per game, a number that is 18th in the NFL. Bell should split carries on Sunday at the Vikings, which should allow ample opportunities for success in fantasy land.
