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. (May 22)

Latest News

Eagles | Darren Sproles inks extension (Fri Jul 29, 08:41 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles signed a one-year, $4.5 million extension Friday, July 29. The two sides had worked on it since June.

Our View: This news points to Sproles playing a large role in the Eagles backfield, which should feature running backs as pass catchers. He should have PPR flex value with RB2 upside week-to-week, especially if Ryan Mathews' injury woes continue. Expect Sproles' ADP to rise from the late rounds with this assurance after an offseason full of speculation that he would be traded from an Eagles team looking to the future.
