Coach Chip Kelly views Sproles as 1A to Nelson Agholor's 1B for punt returns.

Summary

Same as it ever was...that's a perfect way to describe Darren Sproles' first season in Philadelphia. For all the sturm und drang of Sproles move to Chip Kelly's innovative offense, his year-end totals were mirror images of his seasons in New Orleans. 97 touches (50 carries, 47 receptions) for 716 yards and 6 touchdowns. Sproles is a valuable, multi-dimensional contributor but his role week to week is dictated by game script. His fantasy value is limited by the presence of DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, but he shouldn't be forgotten as a priority waiver wire option if the depth chart thins out due to injury. (May 16)

Saints | C.J. Spiller a good fit in New Orleans? (Sun Jun 28, 08:52 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has a perfect skill-set for head coach Sean Payton's system, which relies on getting the ball to players in space, according Chris Wesseling of NFL.com. Wesseling believes Spiller is significantly more talented than RB Reggie Bush and RB Darren Sproles, who both thrived in Payton's system.

Our View: Spiller is going to be a great fit for the Saints offense. Sure, Mark Ingram will be the banger between the tackles but Spiller will be used effectively as a change-of-pace runner and receiver out of the backfield. There are Saints beat writers who feel that Spiller will get more total yardage than Ingram. His current ADP is RB16 (3.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.
