Eagles | Darren Sproles to have a large role?

Sat, 19 May 2018 19:13:20 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) will have a big role in the offense, despite being 34 years old and coming off of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the opinion of Eliot Shorr-Parks, of NJ.com. Sproles was not signed to be a feel-good story, according to Shorr-Parks, and it would not be a surprising to see the veteran near or even atop the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles might have a little gas in the tank for PPR gamers, but this is a crowded backfield. With Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement being more explosive, Sproles could be relegated third-down work and have an erratic role. Treat him as a roster-filling RB4 or No. 5

Eagles | Darren Sproles back with Philly

Sat, 28 Apr 2018 16:47:26 -0700

Free-agent RB Darren Sproles (Eagles) agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, April 28. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles likely will see most of his touches in the passing game as a receiver out of the backfield. Owners on point-per-reception leagues can consider Sproles a No. 4 running back in 2018.

Eagles | Darren Sproles leaning toward return in 2018

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 19:47:34 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent RB Darren Sproles (knee) recently told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport he is "leaning toward returning" for the 2018 season. Sproles suffered a torn ACL in Week 3 and was placed on the Reserve/Injured list shortly thereafter.

Fantasy Tip: What is unclear at the moment is whether or not the Eagles will bring him back. Since Sproles' injury, Philadelphia has added Jay Ajayi and watched Corey Clement show some promise. Despite turning 35 this summer, Sproles should not struggle finding an employer, but he will almost certainly be forced to sign a one-year deal near the league minimum.

Eagles | Darren Sproles placed on IR

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 14:47:34 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee, arm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Wendell Smallwood is the Philadelphia running back to add if he's available. LeGarrette Blount will vulture some touchdowns and be used in short-yardage situations. Corey Clement will also steal some touches. That being said, Smallwood has the most upside in Sproles' absence.

Eagles | Darren Sproles' tore ACL as well

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 07:32:49 -0700

Updating earlier reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (arm, knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and broke his arm on the same play, according to sources. He will have surgery on his arm Monday, Sept. 25, and will have knee surgery later.

Fantasy Tip: Expect a committee of LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement in Sproles' absence. Blount had a 12-67-1 day in Week 3, but he didn't have a single carry in Week 2. His usage isn't guaranteed every week. Smallwood had 12 rushes for 71 yards. Clement was mixed in late in the game, and he had a 6-22-1 showing. Blount and Smallwood are RB3 mix-and-match players. Clement is worth picking up in deeper formats or as a speculative backup.
