Summary

Darren Sproles has teased fantasy owners season after season, but the reality is he's not much more than a complementary player particularly at this point in his career. In 10 prior seasons, Sproles was a fantasy star once (RB10 in 2011 with the Saints) and an every week starter once (RB22 in 2012 also with New Orleans). In his other 8 seasons he's been a special teamer and change-of-pace back who occasionally added value in PPR leagues thanks to his role in the passing game. That's about what you should expect from Sproles this year, at best. It's possible Sproles would be forced into a heavy workload if Ryan Mathews got hurt, but he would be miscast in such a role. If you're drafting Sproles as a depth choice or in best-ball formats, by all means. If you think he's on the cusp of recapturing the magic from 2011, caveat emptor. (August 28)
