Eagles | Darren Sproles likely to miss a game

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 10:11:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) likely will miss one game because of a sprained medial collateral ligament. The team is on bye this week, which should help his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles has had a solid role on offense so far this season, but likely will time with the injury. LeSean McCoy may receive more playing time while Sproles is out. Chris Polk could receive more work but likely will not have much value.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is believed to have avoided an anterior cruciate ligament tear. However, he's expected to miss a few weeks due to the knee injury.

Eagles | Darren Sproles unhappy about news

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 19:58:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) had the stability of his left medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligament tested by a team orthopedist, and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya said "whatever news he delivered" to Sproles reportedly made him "unhappy."

Fantasy Tip: With Chris Polk sidelined, and Sproles out, it will be the LeSean McCoy show down the stretch, as he is the only active running back available for the final quarter.

Eagles | Coach removed LeSean McCoy from game

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 09:47:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said running backs coach Duce Staley removed him late in the team's Week 5 win when the team was trying to run out the clock. McCoy was removed in favor of RB Darren Sproles. "They called me out. Duce pulled me out," McCoy said. "For the most part, if I'm tired, I come out. Then Sproles has his different packages, he has his plays to come in, but the majority of the time, it's just how I'm feeling." Sproles popped a 25-yard run the first play after replacing McCoy, who had 81 yards on 24 carries in the game.

Head coach Chip Kelly noted that sometimes defenses play the run differently when McCoy is in the game compared to Sproles. Sproles seems to receive better blocking at times, and he can be savvier at reading what's in front of him in cramped situations.

Fantasy Tip: It was nice to see McCoy have his best game of the season, but we're still waiting for that breakout game. It could come in Week 6 against the New York Giants. McCoy will cost you $6,700 (13.4% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Eagles | Darren Sproles has career night

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 20:47:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles had seven receptions for a career-high 152 yards in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15. He also had four carries for 26 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles was unstoppable in the pass game, and he has posted a pair of rushing touchdown through the first two games. Philadelphia fans love him, Indianapolis fans are not fond of him, and the same is true for fantasy owners of LeSean McCoy. Sproles' effectiveness is cutting into the value of McCoy to this point. Sproles is a fabulous RB2 or flex play in points-per-reception (PPR) formats, and a decent low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles produces

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:02:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles had 11 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown and four receptions for 14 yards in Week 1. He played 33 snaps (38 percent) while RB LeSean McCoy played 67 percent of the snaps. The two took four snaps together.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles broke a 49-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that inflated his box score numbers. He won't always be that productive in limited work, but he might be a great flex option against the Colts in Week 2.
