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.

Eagles | Darren Sproles out indefinitely

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 05:16:54 -0700

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (arm) is out indefinitely with what is believed to be a broken arm, according to sources. He'll have an MRI Monday, Sept. 25, to confirm.

Fantasy Tip: Wendell Smallwood figures to enter a committee with LeGarrette Blount in Sproles' absence. Smallwood had 12 carries for 71 yards in Week 3 and is an RB3 candidate.

Eagles | Darren Sproles injures wrist

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 11:06:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Sproles has received a decent amount of playing time over the first few weeks and has been part of the passing game. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation and look for any update on Sproles' status after the game.

Eagles | Darren Sproles' role not set

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 20:19:01 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles' role in the offense will change based on the matchups, according to head coach Doug Pederson. "So I don't go into it putting a number on it," Pederson said. "Just kind of keep it more situational with him."

Fantasy Tip: Sproles led the backfield in touches in Week 2 and looks like the safest option in the Philadelphia backfield. Don't expect him to run the ball 20 times a game, but he should be a serviceable flex play in PPR formats in Week 3 against a tough Giants defense.

Eagles | Mixed Week 2 results for Darren Sproles

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:39:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with 78 combined yards in a 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 17. Sproles had 48 yards rushing on 10 carries and caught two passes for 30 yards.

Fantasy Tip: With LeGarrette Blount silenced in Week 2, Sproles picked up the slack and delivered a decent outing. When your quarterback is leading in rushing, however, there's a problem. Sproles remains an RB3 option, but he could move up the ladder if the Eagles straighten out the rushing issues.

Eagles | Darren Sproles reels in five catches

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:42:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles caught five passes for 43 yards in a 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 10. He also ran for two yards on two carries.

Fantasy Tip: With LeGarrette Blount taking away some carries, the Eagles had already projected Sproles as more of a receiver in 2017. If Blount struggles out of the gate, it's possible Sproles could see more touches. For now, consider Sproles an RB3 at best.

Eagles | Darren Sproles to be used more in space

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 09:25:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles will probably be used less as a runner this season and more as a receiver in 2017 after the team added LeGarrette Blount in the offseason, according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch. "That's just our thing now. More so than even last year. We're trying to get mismatches. Once you get (the ball to us) in space, that's our strength," Sproles said.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Sproles won't come close to matching his 94 carries from last season, but he'll likely shoot right past the 52-catch mark he reached in 2016. The Eagles also figure to work in rookie Donnel Pumphrey in order to keep the 34-year-old fresh, but Sproles should be the man in the passing game for what appears to be his final NFL season. Sproles has an excellent chance to blow right past his 12th-round ADP and serve as a back-end RB3.

Eagles | Corey Clement the odd man out?

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 20:41:15 -0700
