Eagles | Darren Sproles still has something left

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 13:02:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles believes he can play two more years, according to his trainer Todd Durkin. "He has not lost a step, and I've seen guys lose steps. He does what no one else does. He does all the little things extremely well, he doesn't take days off. He takes really, really good care of his body. His nutrition is impeccable, his mindset is strong," Durkin said.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles took the unusual step of extending the contract of their 33-year-old back through the end of the 2017 season on Friday, but it makes sense. Sproles is a strong leader and locker-room presence, not to mention one of the best receiving backs in NFL history. He is worth a late-round pick in PPR leagues as the heavy favorite for passing-down work, while Ryan Mathews should see the majority of early-down snaps.

Eagles | Darren Sproles inks extension

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 05:41:18 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles signed a one-year, $4.5 million extension Friday, July 29. The two sides had worked on it since June.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles doesn't figure to run the ball a lot, but he'll be active in the passing game. He's an RB3 candidate in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Sam Bradford working out with teammates

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:30:17 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is working out with several of his teammates in San Diego leading up to training camp. QBs Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz, RB Darren Sproles, WRs Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, T.J. Graham and Rueben Randle and TE Zach Ertz are among the players participating in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is trying to build chemistry with his receivers so they can start the season off strong. Bradford should only be considered as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Matthews and Ertz will be among the leaders in targets for the Eagles this season and likely will be selected in the middle rounds of drafts. Sproles should have a role in the running and passing game in 2016 and could be a late-round option who will have more value in point-per-reception leagues. Huff and Randle are only late-round options in deeper leagues.

Eagles | Running back committee in Philly?

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews has taken most of the first-team repetitions out of the backfield this offseason, but RBs Kenjon Barner and Darren Sproles shared those reps with Mathews, too. Head coach Doug Pederson expects a committee with those three backs and RB Wendell Smallwood.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews should still be the first Philadelphia running back taken in fantasy drafts, at least for standard formats. Sproles is a PPR delight and is worth a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 spot in those formats.

Eagles | Darren Sproles happy where he is

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:00:36 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (personal) missed time this offseason because of a family matter. Sproles said he is content with his current contract and content in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Sproles is good to go for the rest of the offseason and the regular season. He should maintain his role as the primary passing-down running back for the Eagles and is worth a look as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles reports for minicamp

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 10:28:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles reported for the start of mandatory minicamp Monday, June 6, after missing all of the organized team activities. Sproles said he missed the workouts because of family issues and that the team knew about them. He said reports that he was looking for a new contract or to be traded were false.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles should have a decent role on offense if he stays with the team because DeMarco Murray was traded during the offseason. He likely will be more involved in the passing game, which makes him more valuable in point-per-receptions leagues. Sproles should be a solid flex option in most leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to attend camp

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 07:44:58 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles will attend the mandatory minicamp this week.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles has had a tornado of trade rumors swirling around him. With DeMarco Murray out of town, he could have a bigger role on the Eagles. However, he doesn't run much anymore and is primarily a receiver out of the backfield. That makes him a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to arrive next week

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 07:14:38 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles and DT Fletcher Cox are expected to be present at next week's mandatory camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles should have a significant role in the offense behind Ryan Mathews with DeMarco Murray no longer in the picture in 2016. However, he'll have to learn a completely new offense, and he's no spring chicken these days at 32 years old. He has more worth in PPR leagues as more of a flex-type player.

Eagles | Kenjon Barner working with starters

Mon, 30 May 2016 02:51:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner has been working with the starters during OTAs with RB Ryan Mathews (groin) slowed by injury and RB Darren Sproles not participating, and beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks believes Barner's edge over Mathews in speed and agility could earn him the starting job permanently.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews could still end up seeing a lot of the early-down work, but Barner is worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially in PPR leagues. He could end up being a sneaky flex option.

Eagles | Darren Sproles expected back

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:07:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has been in contact with head coach Doug Pederson. Pederson fully expects Sproles to return for mandatory camps in June. Sproles has not been participating in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles should eventually be on the football field, especially when games begin to count. He's been a point-per-reception monster throughout his career and should be drafted as a RB3 in PPR leagues.
