2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Darren Sproles was released by the New Orleans Saints in 2013 it was hard to imagine he could maintain his value outside of the Saints offensive system, especially at 31 years od. However he’s caught 95 balls for 755 yards and has scored 10 total touchdowns with the Eagles in two seasons and even at age 33, some beat writers have called him the “best running back on the team”. Sproles may never see the 70-plus receptions that were commonplace during his three years with the Saints, but 60 receptions wouldn’t be surprising during his 2016 season. While Ryan Mathews is healthy, Sproles will likely be used in a backup role, seeing a handful of carries per game, but will retain value as a third-down back in PPR leagues. This is a system that allowed Jamaal Charles to be amongst the leading receivers at the RB position each year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Opportunity knocks for Eagles RB Byron Marshall
Ryan Mathews placed on IR
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 28, 1:05 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
With Ryan Mathews joining fellow running backs Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner on injured reserve, the Eagles have just two running backs on their roster: Darren Sproles and Byron Marshall. Marshall, an undrafted rookie out of Oregon, was promoted from the practice squad two weeks ago after Smallwood was placed on IR with a knee injury. “Right now, the plan is (to primarily use) Darren,’’ Pederson said. “But for sure we’ll see a little more of (Marshall) on first and second down, and even some third-down situations. (Philly.com)

FFToday's Take: With Ryan Mathews (back) out, the Eagles will need to rely on Bryon Marshall to complement Darren Sproles in the backfield Sunday. The rookie had 11 touches last week and could see a few more against the Cowboys. Marshall may not have a ton of upside but he may become a nice backup option if your typical starter is in danger of sitting out this weekend. Meanwhile, Ryan Mathews may become a salary cap casualty after the season despite scoring nine touchdowns on 776 total yards in 2016.


Injury Darren Sproles (concussion) practicing Tuesday
Eagles RB could be PPR factor in Week 16

Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroCSN) on Twitter: "Allen Barbre, Big V, Darren Sproles, Jordan Matthews all at practice. #Eagles" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Darren Sproles would be a decent RB3/flex if he can play this week against the Giants. He'll still have to clear the NFL concussion protocol, but this is good news.


Injury Darren Sproles out for Week 15
Concussion

FFToday's Take: With Sproles missing the game due to a concussion suffered last week, expect Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner to handle rushing duties. Mathews will have a difficult matchup going against a Ravens defense that's allowed the fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.


Injury Eagles hurting at wide receiver
DGB could sit, Matthews expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 9, 12:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles could possibly be down to three wide receivers when they host the Washington Redskins, Sunday. And head coach Doug Pederson doesn't anticipate making a roster move. Dorial Green-Beckham (ribs) and Jordan Matthews (ankle) are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game, leaving just second-year man Nelson Agholor and rookies Paul Turner and Bryce Treggs as healthy receivers on the roster. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: Jordan Matthews is expected to play but Dorial Green-Beckham is a candidate for the inactive list after not practicing on Friday. The Eagles will likely use Darren Sproles and tight ends Zach Ertz and Trey Burton more than usual in the passing game.
