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.
