Titans | Injury won't slow Marcus Mariota

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 18:03:46 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) is going to be fine following surgery to repair a fractured fibula, according to Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles, who had the same surgery in 2006. "So Marcus is going to be good to go," Sproles said. "He'll probably be better than ever."

Fantasy Tip: Mariota showcased a high ceiling last year, and with Tennessee likely to add a weapon or two on the offensive side, he is a QB1 candidate in 2017.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to play one more year

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 07:24:48 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles plans to play one more season in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles will be in his usual role as a receiving/change-of-pace back behind Byron Marshall against the Dallas Cowboys. As is the case every week, he's a risky flex option in PPR formats.

Eagles | Darren Sproles not on injury report

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 11:51:00 -0800

Contrary to a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) is not on the injury report for Week 16. He fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles should share work with Ryan Mathews during the game and likely will be more involved in the passing game. He will be a risky option because of his concussion but can be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles questionable

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 08:36:58 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 16, but head coach Doug Pederson said Sproles should play.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles is such a dice roll because his value hinges on receptions and touchdowns. He has a rushing touchdown and a receiving score in the last two games he has played, but he's a risky flex against the New York Giants.

Eagles | Darren Sproles practices Tuesday

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 10:40:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) logged another full practice Tuesday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Along with Monday's full session, this should put him on track to play Thursday night, assuming he has cleared the league's concussion protocol by then. Sproles projects to be a better fantasy play then teammate Ryan Mathews considering how well the New York Giants have played defensively lately, although he will still be hard to trust as anything more than a flex in fantasy championship week.

Eagles | Darren Sproles full go

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 14:49:32 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) participated fully in practice Monday, Dec. 19.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Sproles is too risky of a start this week coming off the concussion and as part of a backfield committee.

Eagles | Darren Sproles should be back

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 13:17:04 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) is expected to return for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Sproles likely returning, he'll be returning on a short week and will still be part of a backfield committee. He's just too risky to start, even in PPR leagues and especially with a fantasy championship on the line.

Eagles | Darren Sproles out for Week 15

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 07:48:05 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) is out for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Byron Marshall could have a bigger role in passing situations. The Baltimore Ravens have been good against opposing running backs the last five weeks. Marshall might be a worthwhile flyer in DFS leagues for cheap. His prowess in traditional leagues isn't as appealing due to uncertainty, though.

Eagles | Darren Sproles sitting again

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 09:18:01 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: It is looking like Sproles may not be able to play in Week 15 but still has a few days to be cleared. Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner probably would share work if Sproles is not able to play. Mathews could be a flex option in most leagues, while Barner probably should be avoided.
