2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Chris Polk started the season ranked third on the running back depth chart, but passed Bryce Brown while averaging an impressive 6.5 yards per carry in his limited action. Polk is one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football since he has the talent to thrive and will see plenty of carries in an offense that finished fourth in rushing attempts in 2013. Polk's shoulder issues, which caused him to go undrafted out of Washington, should be resolved after a surgery in the offseason. The team seems confident enough in his health that they shipped off Brown in a draft day trade. At 5'11” and 222 pounds, Polk is a power back that rarely fumbles and can grind out yards inside. It would likely require a LeSean McCoy injury for Polk to have any value – outside of handcuff value – in all but the deepest of leagues. If the McCoy owner leaves him on the waiver wire, though, Polk could be a difference maker in fantasy leagues should an opportunity arise.

Injury Sproles likely to miss a few weeks
Avoids ACL tear

Philadelphia Eagles
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)

FFToday'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"
Missed practice on Sunday, but returned on Monday
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 18, 8:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
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)

FFToday'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.
