2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
At 32 years of age, Darren Sproles is in the twilight of his career and appears to be losing his fantasy relevance after posting a career low 40 catches for 387 yards as the third down and change-of-pace back for the Eagles in 2014. Perhaps most surprising, Sproles did not post a single receiving touchdown last season, the first time he failed to score a receiving touchdown since 2007. He did score six rushing touchdowns on just 57 carries, making him one of the more efficient TD scoring backs in the league. That will likely change in 2015, as the Eagles added both DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews via free agency. His change-of-pace role may stay the same, but age and reduced opportunity have reduced Sproles to a flex play in only deep leagues this season. His value will increase significantly should Murray or Matthews sustain an injury.

News From The Past 90 Days
Eagles want to get Sproles more involved
Eagles hinting at more two-back sets in 2015?
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 3, 4:20 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The coaching staff has consistently said they want to get Darren Sproles involved more, and you saw why on Sam Bradfordís first touchdown pass against the Packers. "We'd like to get him the ball steadily and consistently, and he certainly is a unique, outstanding player," OC Pat Shurmur said. "We just need to make sure we get him the ball, and we have a plan to do that." The more you use Sproles, the more you can use him as a decoy as well. He draws a lot of attention from defenses, which is why I expect to see more two running back sets this season. (Philly Mag: Birds 24/7)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles have spent a bit of time talking up Sproles this summer despite the additions of DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, even floating out the idea of using him in the slot. Some beat writers have a suggested a 65/30/5 split (Murray-Mathews-Sproles) for the Eagles' backfield, although it is extremely like Sproles will see heavy action in two-minute drills, third-down situations or whenever the team is trailing late.


Murray doesn't expect to alternate series at RB
Rushing champ claims Eagles' rotation hasn't been decided yet
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 27, 4:45 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
On Tuesday, DeMarco Murray was asked how he expects the rotation to play out. Will the RBs alternate series? Will they spell one another during a drive? "I don't think it will be alternating series," Murray said. "But [Ryan Mathews] is a quality back, great guy, works extremely hard. I'm sure he'll get his fair share of touches. But I don't know how the rotation will be yet, we haven't touched on it." Murray explained that against the Ravens, the Eagles were just trying to get all three top running backs time with the first-team offense. (CSN Philly)

FFToday's Take: It is almost inconceivable that Philadelphia hasn't discussed the backfield situation yet, but this week's dress-rehearsal preseason game should give us a clue into how HC Chip Kelly intends to utilize Murray, Mathews and Darren Sproles. One possible outcome could be that Murray starts and cedes one series per half and most early-down relief work to Mathews while Sproles handles most of the third down work. As such, Murray should probably be treated as a low-end RB1 at most.
