Eagles | Eight touches for Darren Sproles

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 20:51:56 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (ribs) rushed three times for just six yards in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 28. He added five receptions for 48 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles also had one long reception in the second half nullified by a holding penalty. Fantasy owners can't complain too much, as this is what he does. He is a solid flex option in PPR leagues, and more of an RB4 in standard formats.

Eagles | Darren Sproles not on injury report

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 12:20:29 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 26, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles should share work with Wendell Smallwood in Week 12 and probably will be more involved in passing game. He should be considered a flex option in most leagues but can be a low-end No. 2 running back in deeper point-per-reception leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles expected to play

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 10:14:17 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) is set to play Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the expectation, as Sproles practiced in full all week. With Ryan Mathews ruled out, it is quite possible the veteran will go back to being the lead back as well, although Wendell Smallwood is going to be involved one way the other. Sproles should be considered a RB3/flex option with RB2 upside this week.

Eagles | Darren Sproles practices

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 13:09:49 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Sproles will be able to play in Week 12 as long as he can handle the pain. He probably would share work with Wendell Smallwood if Ryan Mathews is not able to play. Sproles can be a flex option on most leagues if he is active for the game.

Eagles | Darren Sproles takes part in practice

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 09:32:49 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Sproles has a solid chance to play this week despite his injury. He could receive more work than usual if Ryan Mathews misses the game. He has been able to produce in the running and passing game over the last several weeks and can be at least a flex option if he plays.

Eagles | Darren Sproles sits Wednesday

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 08:35:17 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) is out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles hasn't been very useful in fantasy the last few games, but he did have eight grabs two weeks ago against Atlanta. He's a risky flex against the Green Bay Packers, and he doesn't warrant consideration outside of PPR leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles has fractured rib

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 09:59:31 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) has been diagnosed with a rib fracture, but he is expected to be "good" for Week 12 as the injury is in a "safe area", according to The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if owners can plan on having him available next Monday against the decimated Green Bay Packers defense. While it is a good bet Philadelphia will choose to attack Green Bay with its running backs, it is much more of a mystery if the Eagles will their plethora of backs to pound away at the Packers on the ground or get Sproles out in space. With so little clarity in the Philly backfield, owners should consider all Eagles' backs flex plays at best.

Eagles | Darren Sproles injures ribs

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 15:59:45 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Darren Sproles (ribs) left the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to an injury to his ribs and he did not return.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles joined Ryan Mathews on the sidelines. If both are forced to miss time going forward it would be rookie Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner seeing a bump in touches.

Eagles | Darren Sproles totals 10 touches

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 18:28:10 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed two times for 19 yards in the Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons and he added eight receptions for 57 yards on 10 targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles had briefly climbed ahead of Ryan Mathews in the pecking order for carries, but he was behind both Mathews and rookie Wendell Smallwood for carries Sunday. Sproles remains a decent PPR fantasy option heading into Week 11, but he is a risky play in standard leagues with a difficult matchup in Seattle.

Eagles | Darren Sproles the lead back in Philly

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 09:35:51 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has officially moved to the front of the team's running back committee, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles owns a 28-9 advantage in carries over former lead back Ryan Mathews over the last two weeks, but the latter has kept pace with him in fantasy by scoring a touchdown each time. Unfortunately for Sproles and his owners, his "promotion" hasn't resulted in much of an increase in fantasy production. The 33-year-old back's lone touchdown this season came on a receiving score in Week 3. He should be considered a flex play at best moving forward.
