Eagles' Darren Sproles: Receives 12 touches in loss to Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles carried 10 times for 48 yards and caught two of four targets for 30 more in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Chiefs.

Sproles led the team in rushes as LaGarette Blount went without a single tote, finishing with a respectable average of 4.8 yards per carry. He was also the most targeted Eagles runner and chipped in nicely with gains of 16 and 14 yards through the air. The backfield pecking order is extremely murky at the moment, but Sproles seems secure in his role as the team's top receiving option among the bunch. If the veteran continues to receive additional carries next week against the Giants, he could begin to carve out a nice fantasy niche.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Role solidified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles solidified his standing as the Eagles' pass-catching back with the placement of Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) on injured reserve Friday, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Sproles hadn't been seriously threatened by Pumphrey since the latter was selected in the fourth round of this year's NFL Draft. That said, Pumphrey won't be the running back to benefit if Sproles gets injured during the first half of the campaign. During Pumphrey's 4-6 week recovery, the Eagles will count on an RB trio of Sproles (33 offensive snaps in Week 1), LaGarrette Blount (23) and Wendell Smallwood (15). Meanwhile, undrafted rookie Corey Clement was active Sunday but didn't take the field.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Heavily involved in Week 1 passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed just twice for two yards but caught five of eight targets for 43 yards Sunday against the Redskins.

The Eagles couldn't get much of a ground game started this week, but they got plenty through the air, and Sproles was the beneficiary. The veteran scatback finished third on the team in touches after LeGarrette Blount and Zach Ertz and should continue to see a healthy share of opportunities going forward. He remains a solid play in PPR leagues with the potential for more if injuries strike the Philadelphia backfield as they did last year.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Likely DNP on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Bills, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sproles is a known entity in the Eagles offense, so he'll yield the floor to newcomer LeGarrette Blount and 2017 fourth-round pick Donnel Pumphrey in preseason Week 2. Meanwhile, Wendell Smallwood's availability is dependent on a hamstring injury, leaving the latter stages of the game to the undrafted players (Corey Clement and Byron Marshall) in the backfield.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: To be Eagles' X-factor this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles fits 'everywhere and nowhere' in the Eagles' offense this year, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

The diminutive back will almost certainly experience a decline from his 146 touches in 2016 due to the arrival of other weapons, such as Alshon Jeffery, Torry Smith and LeGarrette Blount. Yet Sproles could still have a major impact on the offense due to his ability to create mismatches and big plays against defenses that will have to divide their attention elsewhere. He likely won't run as much as he has the past two years in Philadelphia due to the addition of Blount and the continued development of Wendell Smallwood (hamstring), but he could see an uptick in receiving yards while catching screens out of the backfield behind a potentially dominant offensive line.
