2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Darren Sproles was released by the New Orleans Saints in a cost-cutting move, it was hard to imagine that he could possibly maintain his value at age 31 in any other setting. Luckily for him and his owners, he probably landed in the second-best location for his fantasy value. In standard leagues, Sproles is probably not worth the price that his name recognition will cost you, but in PPR leagues, he should have another productive season as the Eagles look to him to help fill the void left when Desean Jackson was released. Sproles may not see the 70+ receptions that were commonplace during his three years with New Orleans, but 60 receptions is likely a solid baseline to use when projecting his 2014 season. While LeSean McCoy is healthy, Sproles will likely be used in the backup running back role, seeing a handful of carries per game. If McCoy was to go down, though, it's unlikely Sproles' role would increase. He'd likely still be a change of pace back to Chris Polk.

News From The Past 90 Days
Polk becoming Eagles' new goal-line back
Eagles own one of the worst red-zone offenses in NFL
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 18, 4:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
It appears Chris Polk has become the Eagles' goal-line specialist. He played three snaps against the Cowboys Sunday and two were short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the 5, Darren Sproles got the carry and scored. LeSean McCoy led the NFL in rushing last year and is on pace for 1,293 yards this year, fourth-most in the NFL. But the Eagles have struggled in the red zone all year, and the Eagles believe Polk’s size and power give him an advantage through traffic near the end zone. The switch from McCoy to Polk deep in the red zone has helped the Eagles address what was the worst red-zone offense in the NFL through 12 games. (CSN Philly)

FFToday's Take: In his six-year career, McCoy has 64 carries inside the 5-yard line with 24 touchdowns and 24 runs for no gain or a loss. Polk is a free agent at the end of the year, so it is quite possible that McCoy gets another chance next season. For now, McCoy needs to be considered a RB2 with RB1 upside in the right matchup.


Injury Nick Foles (broken collarbone) out 6-8 weeks
Mark Sanchez to assume reins to offense
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 4, 9:40 am

Philadelphia Eagles
McLane posted "Looks more and more like Mark Sanchez at QB for the rest of the #Eagles season and possibly the playoffs." Both McLane and ESPN's Adam Schefter set Foles' timetable at 6-8 weeks, and that may even be on the optimistic side. Coming in cold off the bench Sunday, Sanchez completed 4-of-4 targets to Jeremy Maclin for gains of 52, 7, 21, and an eight-yard touchdown. Sanchez struggles to throw the ball outside the numbers, however, which could put a dent in Riley Cooper's already limited fantasy appeal. (Twitter (Jeff McLane))

FFToday's Take: McLane is the Eagles beat writer for the Philly Inquirer, and Chip Kelly sounded Monday as if Sanchez had a tenuous lock on the starting job the rest of the way. Given Sanchez's checkdown game, it's likely that we'll see more Zach Ertz and receptions for RBs LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles going forward. Sanchez is worth an add in all formats in this potent offense.


Injury Sproles likely to miss a few weeks
Avoids ACL tear
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 13, 11:45 am

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.
