The Eagles announced Saturday that they have agree to terms with RB Darren Sproles for 2018. Sproles missed the final 13 games last season after suffering a broken arm and torn ACL on the same play. He'll rejoin a backfield that now includes Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Donnell Pumphrey. The 2017 rookie, Pumphrey, looks like the worst bet to stick on the 2018 roster after a wholly disappointing debut. Smallwood's roster spot could be challenged as well, given that Philly also added RB Josh Adams as an undrafted free agent. Sproles' return also challenges the target availability for Clement. Overall, the Eagles backfield looks like a committee again, with Ajayi headed for primary ball-carrying duties, Sproles the best bet to lead the group in targets and the rest of the touches likely spread around liberally.
Eagles RB Darren Sproles will miss the rest of the season with a torn right hip flexor. He's averaged just 2.8 carries and 1.7 targets per game this season, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here. This might be the end of the road for the 36-year-old Sproles.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Darren Sproles is "week to week" with a quad strain. Sproles has totaled just 6 carries and 2 targets over the past 3 weeks, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders will continue to share backfield duties in Philly.
The Eagles are bringing back RB Darren Sproles on a 1-year deal. The 36-year-old has played in just 9 games over the past 2 seasons, missing time with a torn ACL, a fractured forearm and hamstring injuries. He's not even a lock to make the roster amid a crowded backfield. But it's also possible Sproles makes the team and plays a role in the passing game. He was targeted 30 times in 8 games last season (including playoffs). The veteran could be a drain on rookie RB Miles Sanders' receiving production.
Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) said Friday that he plans to play against the Redskins on Monday night. We’ll see how Philly lists him on the final injury report Saturday afternoon. We wouldn’t use Sproles in fantasy lineups in his 1st action since the season opener, but it’ll be interesting to see how big a role he plays. RB Josh Adams remains a fine RB2 for Week 13.
Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st in about 3 weeks. It's unclear if he'll play against the Redskins on Monday night, but there's no way we can trust Sproles in Week 13 fantasy lineups.
