|Clement made a lasting impression on Eagles fans last season, capping off his rookie campaign with 108 yards and a receiving touchdown in Philly's 41-33 win over the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Although the former Wisconsin Badger never received more than 15 total touches in a game in 2017, Clement scored six total touchdowns and averaged 5.7 fantasy points per game in a backfield that split nearly 400 carries between six running backs last year.
With LeGarrette Blount now a member of the Detroit Lions, Clement looks primed to be the second running back and change of pace behind Jay Ajayi. Considering Ajayi's well-documented knee issues and Clement's increased role in the Super Bowl, Clement is an attractive draft and stash value as a late-round pick.
|Final season for Darren Sproles|
Eagles RB will hang it up after 2018

|The Philadelphia Eagles made it clear in free agency and the draft that they see Darren Sproles playing a key role in their rushing attack this season.
Sproles, however, isn't planning to extend his career past 2018. The 35-year-old running back announced in a blog post he plans to play just "one more year."
Sproles wrote that he planned on 2017 being his final NFL season before suffering a torn ACL in Week 3. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Sproles is coming off an ACL injury and set to be in a rotation with Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement. He'll have sporadic Flex value in PPR leagues and worthy of a late-round flier in your draft. Sproles is looking to move into fifth all-time in all-purpose yards.
|Eagles ready to make Ajayi a lead back|
Tighter RB rotation could make Ajayi an easy RB2 in 2018
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 26, 8:00 am
|Actions speak louder than words, but when it comes to the Eagles' running back situations, the team is both talking and acting like Jay Ajayi is going to be the top back. Although they ran a running back by committee last season, the team appears ready to slightly abandon that philosophy next season. Ajayi was with the first-team offense for almost all of their snaps during the offseason, except for the occasional snap that went to second-year running back Corey Clement. (NJ.com)|
FFToday's Take: The Eagles split 395 carries last season between six running backs with LeGarrette Blount (173) getting a 44% share. With Blount out of mix it's safe assume a tighter rotation in the backfield with Ajayi, Clement and Darren Sproles getting the majority of work. In this scenario, 200-plus carries seems like a good bet for Ajayi. Last season, 16 of the 18 RBs with 200+ carries finished as a fantasy RB2 in standard scoring leagues based on fantasy points per game.
