Summary

Darren Sproles' role was in question last year as Chip Kelly was sent packing and Doug Pederson - and his West Coast offense - took over. Yet, Sproles' 2016 mirrored his prior two seasons in Philadelphia. At 33 years old, the diminutive (5'7", 180 lbs.) set career highs in carries (94) and rushing yards (438) while contributing mainly as a receiver (52 receptions for 427 yards). Expect Sproles to play a similar role for one more season, but start to give way to rookie Donnell Pumphrey later in the year. While he's in the lineup, Sproles will catch a ton of passes but won't see many runs on 1st and 2nd down. He's coming off a RB30 season and that's a reasonable baseline for his fantasy outlook in 2017. He's a bye week/matchup flex option in PPR leagues. You could do worse, but if you're going to win your league, you have to do much better. (May 21)
