Eagles | Darren Sproles' work ethic praised

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:36:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles received praise about his work ethic from Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. "We heard from the coaches that coached him what an intelligent football player he is and [we] learned that from the first day he was in this building and how sharp he is and how dedicated he is," Kelly said. "I talked to Norv Turner and he remarked to me when I saw him at one of the pro days, he said, 'You'll have to slow him down because he only knows one speed.' And that's the same thing you see. Darren practices and trains at one speed. It's awesome. He fits in with the culture that we want in terms of preparation, but it's everything we wanted when we got him here."

Eagles | LeSean McCoy thinks Darren Sproles will help him

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 20:17:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he believes the addition of RB Darren Sproles will help him this upcoming season, because it will allow him to stay fresh longer in games. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together. I think having me fresh in the fourth quarter with fewer carries can be even more dangerous," McCoy said.

Saints | Bigger role for Travaris Cadet?

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 19:04:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said Tuesday, March 25, that RB Travaris Cadet could take on "a little more of that role" that RB Darren Sproles played in the team's offense over the past three seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Cadet still has to battle for touches with Mark Ingram, Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas, so don't expect Cadet to become a fantasy stud in points-per-reception (PPR) leagues like Sproles. However, Cadet is likely to see more touches, and his workload should be monitored this summer. If he has a good training camp and preseason, and perhaps an injury or two occurs, he could emerge as a useful fantasy option in more than just deeper leagues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles acquired

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 05:59:11 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for an undisclosed package.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles fits the offense well and will continue to be a good running back to own in point-per reception leagues. However, he'll be 31 next season, and he could have landed in a better spot for fantasy purposes. Sproles' presence may also limit LeSean McCoy's touches, but it should add more longevity to his career after his phenomenal, but taxing, 2013 season. Sproles should often be a good RB3 in PPR leagues, but is a RB4 or handcuff material in others. McCoy remains a stud RB1 in all formats.
