Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles scored a touchdown in Sunday's win over Tennessee.
Insight: Sproles had six carries for 25 yards and three catches for 14 yards. He is dependent on scoring a touchdown for a valauble fantasy day.
 
11/11/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles has been the "special" in the Eagles special teams.
Insight: Sproles returned a Carolina punt 65 yards for a touchdown Monday night. he is averaging a league-leading 17.0 ypr this season. He also rushed for a score.
 
11/2/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) is active for Week 9,
Insight: Sproles and running mate LeSean McCoy will have as healthy an offensive line as they have had all season and both could yield decent fantasy numbers.
 
10/31/2014 2:29:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) has practiced all week and should be playing Sunday.
Insight: Sproles and running mate LeSean McCoy will have as healthy an offensive line as they have had all season and both could yield decent fantasy numbers.
 
10/26/2014 2:44:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) was hoping to get back for the Cardinals game, but he's been declared inactive.
Insight: Sproles' absence will yield time for Chris Polk, though he won't be fantasy worthy.
 
10/22/2014 11:18:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) "appears likely" to play in Week 8's contest against Arizona, according to CSN Philadelphia.
Insight: Sproles dodged a bullet by not tearing his ACL, and after getting through Tuesday's practice, it looks like he has a good chance to suit up. Sproles is getting just 5.5 touches per game, so if owners have better options, he is a player that can be kept on the bench.
 
10/21/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles (slight MCL tear in his left knee) was practicing Tuesday, according to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.
Insight: It was a 2-3 week timetable and it appears in may come out on the low side. It will be important to see how he feels on Wednesday and that he continues to improve over the week of practice.
 
10/13/2014 1:13:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles, who left Sunday night's game, has a slight MCL tear in his left knee, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer
Insight: It's apparently a 2-3 week timetable for his return. The only good news is the Eagles have their bye next week so Sproles will have a couple of weeks to get healthy and may miss only one or at most two games.
 
10/12/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles left Sunday night's game with a left knee injury.
Insight: No word on how serious, but we should know in the next few days. The only good news is the Eagles have their bye next week so Sproles will have a couple of weeks to get healthy.
 
Hot9/16/2014 9:05:00 AM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles had another productive weekend, posting 178 combined yards and a touchdown.
Insight: We are now seeing how coach Chip Kelly envisioned using the back along with his star tailback LeSean McCoy. Sproles' fantasy owners can start him each week as a reliable fantasy option. Through the first two weeks he's already totaled 263 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns
 
8/3/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles has been working with the wide receivers as well as the running backs, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
Insight: Just goes to show what Chip Kelly is thinking about. Sproles will do more than lineup in the backfield and could have solid receiving numbers. He should be able to produce fantasy-worthy statistics in PPR leagues.
 
3/14/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Eagles running back Darren Sproles had his contract extended two years through 2016, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Sproles, who will be 31 in June, is apparently not just a one-year experiment. In the innovative Chip Kelly offense, he will be a tough matchup for the opposition to cover and still keep an eye on LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson.
 
3/13/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Former Saints running back Darren Sproles has been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fifth-round selection according to multiple sources.
Insight: Sproles, who will be 31 in June, will be a tough matchup for the opposition, though he probably won't spend as much time in the backfield as he did in New Orleans because of workhorse LeSean McCoy. He had 1,273 all-purpose yards last season. His best fantasy value will be in league which include return yardage.
 
3/11/2014 7:41:00 PM
Description: The Saints have decided not to release Darren Sproles and will instead try to trade him. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Why give Sproles away for free if everyone wants him? That seems to be the Saints' line of thinking. Even at age 30, Sproles (1,273 all-purpose yards in 2013) still has plenty to offer fantasy owners.
 
3/7/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Multiple sources are reporting that running back Darren Sproles will be released by the Saints.
Insight: Sproles said his goodbyes on Twitter just a few minutes ago. It's a cost-cutting move for the Saints as Sproles is slated to earn $3.5 million next season. He's been a jack of all trades, catching 231 passes and rushing 188 times for 1,067 yards in his last three seasons. He's also returned 81 punts and 70 kickoffs over that same span.
 
3/6/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Darren Sproles is one of several players the Saints could be willing to trade this offseason. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Pierre Thomas and Lance Moore could also be moved. Sproles (71 catches, 604 receiving yards last season) is an elite PPR running back but only average in leagues that use standard scoring.
 
12/11/2013 11:57:00 AM
Description: According to Mike Triplett of espn.com, Saints running back Darren Sproles played a measly 15 snaps Sunday night against the Panthers.
Insight: Sproles' playing time continues to dwindle. He's offered inconsistent production all season, putting up a pair of two-touchdown games, 10 games with zero scores and just two games with 100 yards from scrimmage (zero since Week 4).
 
11/28/2013 6:30:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Darren Sproles (ankle, knee) practiced fully Thursday, according to Mike Triplett of espn.com. Sproles missed last Thursday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Sproles has offered inconsistent production this season, putting up two two-touchdown games and zero scores in his other eight, so fantasy owners should be overly excited about having him back. Pierre Thomas is the Saints running back to own.
 
11/21/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Saints running back Darren Sproles (ankle, knee) is inactive for Thursday's game at Atlanta.
Insight: Sproles has offered inconsistent production this season, putting up two two-touchdown games and zero scores in his other eight, so he's not a major loss for fantasy owners. Pierre Thomas is a RB2 this week, and Mark Ingram has some flex value in deeper leagues.
 
11/21/2013 5:22:00 PM
Description: According to espn.com's Mike Triplett, Saints running back Darren Sproles (ankle, knee) is a "true case of 50-50" for Thursday's game at Atlanta.
Insight: Sproles will be a game-time decision. He's offered inconsistent production this season, putting up two two-touchdown games and zero scores in his other eight. Pierre Thomas will be a RB2 if Sproles is out and a flex option if Sproles is active.
