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 to be traded?

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:50:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles could be traded this offseason, in the opinion of NJ.com's Elliot Shorr-Parks. Shorr-Parks views Sproles as a logical and likely trade candidate, with Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner as the two running backs who will make the final roster.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles would be a valuable asset to any NFL backfield, and it would make sense for the Eagles to trade him if they want another draft pick after trading away so many for the No. 2 overall pick this year. Mathews figures to be the primary ball carrier for now, and he has RB2 upside if he can stay healthy.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray no longer lead back?

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:42:05 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray may no longer be the team's lead running back, especially with RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) returning to practice Tuesday, Dec. 8. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur did not confirm that Murray was still the leading running back, and the Eagles remain confident in all of their running backs. Murray had just eight carries for 24 yards in the win over the New England Patriots in Week 13, fewer than RBs Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner.

Fantasy Tip: With the Eagles non-committal on Murray's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) status in the backfield or workload, you'll want to avoid him on FantasyScore against the Buffalo Bills this weekend. In fact, staying away from this backfield entirely might be the best plan with Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) on his way back.

Eagles | DeMarco Murray sees limited action

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 07:09:43 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray played just 14 snaps Sunday, Dec. 6, and had eight carries against the New England Patriots. Murray averaged 36 snaps per game before Sunday. His previous low this season was 25. RB Darren Sproles had 15 carries, the third-most of his career and his most since he had 18 in 2009. RB Kenjon Barner had nine carries, which was a career high. Head coach Chip Kelly explained the distribution of carries by saying he believed that the smaller, faster Barner and Sproles would be better matchups for the Eagles against the Patriots' larger linebackers.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a one-game ordeal, but Sproles had 66 yards on 15 carries and four grabs for 34 yards. It's a situation that's worth monitoring as the Eagles prepare for Buffalo Bills in Week 14.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews out for Week 11

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 07:02:33 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is out for Week 11. RB Kenjon Barner will have a role Sunday, Nov. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Darren Sproles ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) would figure to have the first crack at replacing Mathews on third downs. Barner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't figure to have a big enough role against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be a FantasyScore factor. DeMarco Murray ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should see a value bump as well, and he's a solid RB2 play.
