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.

Darren Sproles to be featured RB?
Uncertainty surrounds DeMarco Murray
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 7:15 am

Philadelphia Eagles
After a troubling week, #Eagles have weighed all options with DeMarco Murray, even sitting him. Either way, Darren Sproles will be featured. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray appears to be digging his grave in Philadelphia. He hasn't been a good fit for Chip Kelly's east-west running offense and Kelly refuses to scheme plays that fit Murray's North-South style. Sproles makes for an interesting DFS play and a solid FLEX, RB2 play is season-long leagues. Ryan Mathews should also see action.


DeMarco Murray a non-factor again in Week 13
Lost 47 of 61 snaps to Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 7, 4:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
No big deal, Chip Kelly said. Watching the game it sure felt like a big deal. Struggling DeMarco Murray, last year’s NFL rushing leader, clearly appeared to be demoted Sunday, his workload reduced to just eight carries in the Eagles’ upset win over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Murray played only 14 of 61 snaps Sunday after averaging 36 snaps before Sunday. His previous low this season was 25 vs. the Redskins. With Murray benched most of the game, the Eagles used Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner to carry the fooball. (CSN Philly)

FFToday's Take: Kelly explained the carry split by saying he believed that the smaller, faster Barner and Sproles would be better matchups for the Eagles against the Patriots’ larger linebackers. He also said on Monday that he plans on evaluating his running back rotation on a "week-to-week basis" going forward. It's looking more and more as if Kelly might be willing to feature Ryan Mathews, who has missed the last three games, down the stretch if can be cleared of his concussion soon.


Injury Bradford, Mathews out for the Eagles
Both suffered concussions in Week 10.
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 20, 12:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Already facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without quarterback Sam Bradford, the team will be without running back Ryan Mathews due to a concussion, the team announced. Left tackle Jason Peters (back) is also questionable. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: As expected, Mark Sanchez will get the start at quarterback while DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner will handle the running back duties. Murray's workload may not increase all that much with Mathews out but he may get an extra opportunity or two around the goaline.
