Fantasy Football: Going against the Dallas defense? Start 'em!

Darren Sproles has been cleared to play after suffering a concussion last week.

And our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin says he’s a starter this week.

Sproles and the Saints offense are facing the Cowboys, and that means he’s likely to have a big day. Statistically, Dallas has the second-worst defense in the NFL, ranking only ahead of Philadelphia. The Cowboys are giving up 419.2 yards per game, 114.0 on the ground and 305.2 in the air.

And Sproles is capable of getting yards both ways. Even though he has only 30 carries for 118 yards a touchdown, he has 37 catches for 368 yards and a touchdown.

Against the Cowboys, Mike says he could be an even bigger weapon for the Saints.
