2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Saints signed Sproles to a multi-year contract during the 2011 offseason and the expectation was that he would serve as a pass catching threat out of the backfield as well as spice up the team’s return game. Let’s just say that for $14-million over four years, the Saints got an absolute bargain. Sproles set career highs in rushing yards with 603, receptions with 86, receiving yards with 710 and receiving touchdowns with seven while averaging 11.6 FPts/G. Is a repeat performance in 2012 in the cards? Why not? Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram figure to handle the majority of the work on rushing downs but when you chuck the ball around as much as the Saints do, there aren’t many rushing downs. Since Sproles hauled in an amazing 77.5% of his targets and averaged 8.3 yards per reception, a short pass to him beats a running play in most instances. While the Saints are unlikely to move Sproles into the starting lineup, he certainly ranks as their top fantasy running back entering the 2012 season. Sproles shapes up as a mid-tier RB2 in standard scoring formats and an upper tier RB2 in PPR leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sproles likely to miss a few weeks     -- Mon Oct 13 11:45 am --

Avoids ACL tear
Eagles running back Darren Sproles won’t miss the rest of the season but will likely be sidelined a few weeks, according to a source familiar with the veteran tailback’s condition. Sproles injured his knee late in the third quarter Sunday night against the Giants, (CSNPhilly)

FF Today's Take: Sproles avoided a severe knee injury but will likely be on the sidelines for the Eagles next game in Week 8 against the Cardinals. Philadelphia has a bye in Week 7. With Chris Polk out with a hamstring injury, the team may sign a running back (Matthew Tucker?) in the near future.
Injury McCoy dealing with "small version of turf toe"     -- Mon Aug 18 8:00 pm --

Missed practice on Sunday, but returned on Monday
LeSean McCoy missed practice on Sunday with what he called “a small version of turf toe.” He returned to training camp at the NovaCare Complex on Monday and completed practice. “[Sunday] it was really, really hurting pretty bad," McCoy said. “It felt a little better [Monday], so I went for it.” McCoy said he injured the big toe on his left foot during a joint practice against the Patriots last week in New England. He told the media he had an MRI and X-rays on the toe and that he’s “fine.” After practice on Sunday, McCoy appeared frustrated and declined to answer questions about why he didn’t participate. (CSN Philly)

FF Today's Take: It may be "small" to McCoy, but it could be a big deal to his fantasy owners. As the league's most elusive back, McCoy arguably needs healthy toes as much any player, so it is troublesome when he told CSN Philly that it bothers him when he tries to put pressure on the toe. Last year marked the first time McCoy has played a full season in the last four years, so his owners need to keep Darren Sproles and Chris Polk in mind on draft day.
