|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 | Darren Sproles may miss camp|
Mon, 18 Apr 2016 07:41:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sproles' fantasy value hinges a lot on what the Eagles do in the draft as they're believed to be salivating at Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott. Sproles will be 33 this season, and he doesn't have a lot of value outside of PPR leagues. He could still be a solid RB4 or better in PPR leagues, though.

|Eagles | Darren Sproles staying put?|
Sun, 21 Feb 2016 11:01:35 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles is expected to be retained this offseason, according CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank and Dave Zangaro. Sproles will count $4.5 million against the salary cap if kept, but he is deemed to be too valuable to release.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles adds another dimension to Philadelphia's offense and has proven to be one of the more dynamic pass-catching running backs in the NFL. His usage may not be exactly the same under new head coach Doug Pederson, but he still has RB2 potential in PPR leagues.

|Eagles | Darren Sproles might see more passes|
Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:54:57 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Sproles will still be behind DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews on the depth chart, but his fantasy value could increase a tick as Pederson tries to use Sproles more.

|Eagles | DeMarco Murray plays eight snaps|
Mon, 21 Dec 2015 05:22:15 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Murray can't be used in fantasy right now. Sproles and Mathews splitting the work hurts each other's value, but they are decent flex options.

|Eagles | DeMarco Murray says he's fresh|
Fri, 18 Dec 2015 09:38:13 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray has seen his role in the offense reduced drastically the last two weeks, and through 12 games this year he has just 174 carries compared to 287 rushes through 12 games with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014. As a result, Murray said it's the freshest he's been this time of year. Despite voicing his displeasure to owner Jeff Lurie two weeks ago, Murray said he's happy and committed to returning to the Eagles next year. Murray had 11 carries last week to RB Ryan Mathews' 13 and RB Darren Sproles' seven.
Fantasy Tip: It's clear now that Murray ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) isn't the lead back in Philly anymore, and Chip Kelly is going with a three-headed committee in the backfield. That makes it really tough to rely on any one rusher in this backfield, especially in Week 15 against the top-five defense of the Arizona Cardinals.

|Eagles | Darren Sproles leads team in rushing|
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 14:29:18 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown on seven carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. RB Ryan Mathews rushed for 38 yards on 13 carries, while RB DeMarco Murray rushed for 34 yards on 11 carries.
Fantasy Tip: The Eagles spread the carries between the three runners but none had great success on the ground. All three probably will continue to receive carries with Sproles possibly being the most value in terms of fantasy because of his ability to produce in the running and passing game.

|Eagles | DeMarco Murray expected to see reduced role|
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:39:43 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray will be active for Week 14's game against the Buffalo Bills, although the team considered benching him after he vented to owner Jeffrey Lurie about his role in head coach Chip Kelly's offense following their victory over the New England Patriots in Week 13. RB Darren Sproles is expected to have a prominent role in the offense versus Buffalo and could wind up receiving more carries than Murray.
Fantasy Tip: Murray ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has gained just 54 rushing yards over the past two weeks and should be avoided in all fantasy formats this week due to his anticipated reduced role and lack of production. He will be one of four running backs active for the Eagles against Buffalo, along with Sproles ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), Ryan Mathews ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) and Kenjon Barner ($2,400, 4.8% of cap). Sproles warrants consideration as a flex player in FantasyScore and Mathews is also expected to see a decent number of snaps in his return from a concussion but Barner has no fantasy value.

|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.
