Eagles' Darren Sproles: Catches 73-yard touchdown against Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sproles rushed twice for minus-1 yard, but hauled in all six of his targets for 128 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Steelers.

With starter Ryan Mathews going down early with an ankle injury, Sproles split the backfield workload with youngsters Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner. All three found the end zone, with Sproles doing it through the air on a spectacular 73-yard catch-and-run. He could see more snaps if Mathews misses extended time, but don't expect significantly more rushing attempts for the diminutive running back.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: 14 touches in Week 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed 12 times for 40 yards and caught two passes (on two targets) for eight yards in Monday night's win over the Bears.

Sproles led the Eagles with 12 carries, topping teammate Ryan Mathews' mark of nine Monday. Although Mathews' total included two totes that he took for short touchdowns, Sproles also got a couple goal line calls, but couldn't punch the ball in. On the whole, Sproles couldn't find much room to run Monday, but after getting just seven touches in Week 1, the fact that he doubled that in Philadelphia's second game seems encouraging ahead of Sunday's in-state meeting with the Steelers.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Draws five targets in regular season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles carried five times for 12 yards to go along with two receptions for 24 yards in the Eagles' 29-10 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Sproles was expected to assume a complementary role to RB Ryan Mathews to open the season. While that appears to be the case on the surface, the team's distribution of snaps suggests otherwise; Sproles saw 38-of-77 snaps compared to Mathews' 37. The near dead-even split didn't translate to equivalent rushing production, though, as Mathews logged 22 carries of his own. However, Mathews meanwhile wasn't involved in the passing game whatsoever, while Sproles garnered five targets. Overall, each tailback's one-dimensional role figures to continue moving forward, ultimately limiting the fantasy upside of both.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Complementary role expected
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sproles is expected to be a complementary option to starting running back Ryan Mathews this season, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sproles could earn an extended carry total if he develops the hot hand in a game, but otherwise he's expected to make most of his damage as a change-of-pace runner or a mismatch in the receiving game. At 33 years old, Sproles has intentionally been preserved somewhat during the preseason to ensure he remains fresh over the course of the upcoming campaign. In 16 games last season, Sproles finished with 317 rushing yards, 388 receiving yards, four offensive touchdowns and two punt return scores.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Listed second on initial depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sproles is listed as the No. 2 running back on the Eagles' first unofficial depth chart, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sproles and Ryan Mathews are reportedly far ahead of the other backs, with the former expected to handle most of the passing-down work while the latter gets most of the carries. Kenjon Barner and Wendell Smallwood are also in the mix to earn roles, but Smallwood has missed the last week of training camp while recovering from a quadriceps injury. Sproles recently signed a one-year extension that also increases his salary for this season.
