Eagles' Darren Sproles: Pondering future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles said after Sunday's 20-14 loss to the Saints in the divisional round that he hasn't decided if he wants to play a 15th NFL season in 2019, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I really don't know yet," Sproles said, when asked about his future in football. "I was going to take time away and then I was going to make my decision."

If this is the end for the 35-year-old Sproles, he concluded his career on a rather underwhelming note after starting and playing 27 of the Eagles' 51 offensive snaps against New Orleans and finishing with only four yards on three carries to go with three receptions for 21 yards. After an injury-shortened 2017 season, Sproles was motivated to return in 2018 so he could end his career on his own terms, but health still proved to be an issue. He suffered a hamstring injury in the season opener that cost him 11 weeks of action before he returned to play in the Eagles' final seven contests. In his eight total appearances, Sproles averaged 3.2 yards per carry and tallied 20 receptions for 195 yards while reaching the end zone three times.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Leading rusher in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed 13 times for 21 yards and caught two of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 16-15 wild-card round win over Chicago.

It's a testament to Sproles' ability that he led his team in carries and rushing yards in a playoff game at the advanced age of 35. The diminutive running back is already sixth on the NFL's all-purpose yardage list and could climb even higher if he chooses to suit up for another season. Sproles has already stated that a decision won't come on that front until training camp next season, but his focus lies elsewhere at the moment with the Eagles set to travel to New Orleans to face Sproles' previous employer in the divisional round.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Gets nine touches in easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles had seven carries for 24 yards and caught two of three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington.

Sproles led the Philadelphia backfield with a 38 percent snap share, finishing slightly ahead of Wendell Smallwood (37 percent) and Josh Adams (25 percent), a duo that combined for 30 touches. The Eagles seem to have settled on a committee heading into the playoffs, with a road matchup against the Bears potentially favoring Sproles' role on passing downs. Of course, the Chicago defense has done excellent work defending running backs in the passing game, allowing just 6.6 yards per catch and 5.1 per target.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Totals 108 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed nine times for 32 yards and caught three of six targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-30 win over the Texans.

Sproles' man whiffed while attempting to tackle him in the flat and the 35-year-old took it 37-yards to the house for a first-quarter touchdown. He also led the team in rushing, and his nine rushing attempts marked a season high, were more than he had in his last three games combined and were just two fewer than starter Josh Adams. Accordingly, none of the Eagles' backfield options make for reliable fantasy choices Week 17 at Washington.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Totals 46 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed three times for 30 yards and caught three of four targets for 16 yards in Sunday night's 30-23 win over the Rams.

Sproles was held out of the end zone for the first time since his return from injury but actually had his most impressive rushing performance in any of his four games this season. He hasn't carried the ball more than five times in those contests but picked up 17 and nine yards on his first two carries in this one, showing his customary burst and power. The 35-year-old saw 20 snaps in his second straight game but surprisingly didn't see more while Josh Adams was in and out of the game with a back injury. Wendell Smallwood picked up the slack instead and found paydirt twice. Sproles has not seen more than 29 snaps or nine touches all year and therefore has limited fantasy upside heading into a Week 16 home matchup with the Texans.
