Eagles | Kenjon Barner on the bubble

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 23:10:57 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is on the bubble as RB Byron Marshall projects as a younger version of him.

Fantasy Tip: A caveat will be if the team trades Darren Sproles, which opens a spot for Barner. For now, Barner has no fantasy luster unless something changes. Marshall could be an RB5 flyer.

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 | 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.

Eagles | Philly impressed by Kenjon Barner

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 23:09:26 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles have liked what they have seen by RB Kenjon Barner during organized team activities (OTAs).

Fantasy Tip: With rushing champ DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews ahead of him on the depth chart it would take a long-term injury to either for Barner to have meaningful fantasy appeal. However, Murray and Mathews havenít exactly been durable during their NFL careers, so the chance could be there sooner rather than later.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Kenjon Barner from the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, Aug. 19, for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.
