From Rotoworld:

Darren Sproles is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured hand.
Coach Joe Vitt was "vague" about Sproles' timetable for return, but this sounds like something that will cost him several games. Pierre Thomas should be the primary box-score beneficiary, seeing increased action in the passing game. Mark Ingram does not play a role similar to Sproles, and the impact on Ingram's usage remains to be seen. Fantasy owners need to hang onto Sproles until we get more info. The Saints plan to "reevaluate" him next week. Related: Pierre Thomas, Mark IngramSource: Mike Triplett on Twitter Nov 2 - 2:31 PM

Ingram is available in my league, is he worth picking up? Or should I go with J. Rodgers?

In my 10-Team PPR league I just dropped Ballard for Pierre Thomas. My team is hurting this week in that league with Sproles out, MJD out, Tate hurt, Lloyd on BYE.

Pierre is more than an adequate replacement at least; the Saints are lucky they have such depth.

that's a bad thing?

Tate's been useful exactly once this season. He's a handcuff for Foster and nothing more.

Big blow to my team. PPR + return yards (1pt/20 yards). He and Cobb make my team...

Oh well, JaQuizz will have to step up.... :(

All the Saints backs are gone in my league....except for Ivory and Cadet. Cadet is basically a large version of Darren Sproles, albeit slower. I'm rolling the dice and picking him up in hopes the Saints put him to use.

I thought Tate might have got some extended work this week since the Texans will run all over the Bills.

I am just grumpy about having to start Ballard, who is in a time-share with Brown going against the stingy Miami D.

Tate could have been in for a good amount of usage against BUF this week. BUF is completely awful and you would have to imagine that HOU will just pound the rock the whole game.

P. Thomas is not available in my league. Who should I pickup to fill-in for Sproles...Ingram, Ivory, Cadet, or J. Rodgers (ATL)?
