Summary

A season ago Bryce Brown was anointed by most fantasy pundits as the dynasty handcuff to LeSean McCoy. But the new coaching staff had other ideas, and traded Brown this offseason to the Buffalo Bills. Chris Polk may not be 2nd on the depth chart thanks to the acquisition of Darren Sproles, but realistically any injury to LeSean McCoy would mean significant snaps for Polk. Sproles isn't a runner, whereas Polk is a traditional two-down back that can handle a pounding both inside and outside of the tackle box. (May 25)

Eagles | Chris Polk not playing (Thu Aug 28, 06:19 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) will not play Thursday, Aug. 28.

Our View: Since he's now missed almost the whole preseason, he may not make the final roster. Polk isn't worth a spot on your roster regardless.

Eagles | Chris Polk still hurting (Sat Aug 23, 02:00 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) knows he has a lot of work to do to recover from strained hamstring. Polk practiced Saturday, Aug. 23, but could still feel pain when he made cuts.

Our View: Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly. Polk could be the primary backup behind LeSean McCoy if healthy. Fantasy owners looking to handcuff a player to McCoy should monitor this Polk hamstring injury.

Eagles | Several not expected to play (Thu Aug 21, 06:17 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff (shoulder), RB Chris Polk (hamstring), WR Brad Smith (undisclosed), CB Brandon Boykin (leg), LB Jake Knott (hamstring) and C Julian Vandervelde (back) are not expected to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday, Aug. 21.

Eagles | Chris Polk misses practice (Tue Aug 19, 12:53 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Aug. 19. It does not sound like Polk will be available for the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.

Our View: If Polk is not very durable this year, that will open up a spot for a third running back to have value at some point this year in the Eagles backfield, in addition to enhancing Darren Sproles' value as a quasi-backup to LeSean McCoy.
