Eagles | Mixed Week 2 results for Darren Sproles

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:39:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with 78 combined yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17. Sproles had 48 yards rushing on 10 carries and caught two passes for 30 yards.

Fantasy Tip: With LeGarrette Blount silenced in Week 2, Sproles picked up the slack and delivered a decent outing. When your quarterback is leading in rushing, however, there's a problem. Sproles remains an RB3 option, but he could move up the ladder if the Eagles straighten out the rushing issues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles reels in five catches

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:42:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles caught five passes for 43 yards in a 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10. He also ran for two yards on two carries.

Fantasy Tip: With LeGarrette Blount taking away some carries, the Eagles had already projected Sproles as more of a receiver in 2017. If Blount struggles out of the gate, it's possible Sproles could see more touches. For now, consider Sproles an RB3 at best.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to be used more in space

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 09:25:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles will probably be used less as a runner this season and more as a receiver in 2017 after the team added LeGarrette Blount in the offseason, according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch. "That's just our thing now. More so than even last year. We're trying to get mismatches. Once you get (the ball to us) in space, that's our strength," Sproles said.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Sproles won't come close to matching his 94 carries from last season, but he'll likely shoot right past the 52-catch mark he reached in 2016. The Eagles also figure to work in rookie Donnel Pumphrey in order to keep the 34-year-old fresh, but Sproles should be the man in the passing game for what appears to be his final NFL season. Sproles has an excellent chance to blow right past his 12th-round ADP and serve as a back-end RB3.

Eagles | Corey Clement the odd man out?

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 20:41:15 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement is currently behind RB LeGarrette Blount, RB Darren Sproles, RB Wendell Smallwood and RB Donnel Pumphrey and is likely bound for the practice squad, according to Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews not on the way out?

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 12:26:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles told ESPN's Josina Anderson Friday, June 30, that he - along with backfield mates LeGarrette Blount and Ryan Mathews - "can share the ball and everyone can be happy."

Fantasy Tip: Mathews has long been considered to be on the outs in Philly ever since the Eagles signed Blount, presumably since the latter was supposed to take the former's "big-back" role in the offense. Mathews has to be cleared yet from offseason neck surgery, so his release still seems the most likely move for Philadelphia. Even if he sticks on the roster, he'll be hard to trust as anything more than a RB5.

Eagles | Donnel Pumphrey seeing time in slot

Fri, 12 May 2017 21:47:43 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Donnel Pumphrey said he is seeing reps as a slot receiver, and head coach Doug Pederson said Pumphrey reminds him of RB Darren Sproles because of his versatility.

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.
