Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 1 vs ATL (5 / 10 / 0 rush, 7 / 4 / 22 / 0 rec)

Sproles' season debut at 35 years old was an impressive one with a strong share of the snaps in the first half. Jay Ajayi shifted to prominence in the second half, but Sproles saw primary snaps, plus the two-minute drill over the opening 30 minutes. Sproles had a touchdown opportunity with a goal line toss, but was tackled at the one-yard-line. Sproles also broke a tackle on a third down reception for a key conversion in the closing minutes. The Eagles ultimately scored the game-winning touchdown on the drive. Sproles was an uncharacteristic disappointment in the passing game with a drop and being covered easily on multiple short routes.


Latest News

Eagles | Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles likely back Week 4 (Mon Sep 24, 12:28 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) are expected to play in Week 4 versus the Tennessee Titans.

Our View: Good news for the Eagles backfield. Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement were the team's leading rushers on Sunday against the Colts with 56 rushing yards each. If Ajayi is in the game, he should be the lead back for the Eagles. Fantasy GMs are familiar with this backfield getting split up, so look at Ajayi as more of a low-end RB2 or flex play when he returns.

Eagles | Week 3 Philadelphia Eagles inactives (Sun Sep 23, 11:43 AM) - The Philadelphia Eagles have declared WR Alshon Jeffery, RB Darren Sproles, RB Jay Ajayi, OT Matt Pryor, QB Nate Sudfeld, OG Chance Warmack and OT Jordan Mailata inactive for Week 3.

Our View: Corey Clement is active and should get the most snaps of the Eagles backs, but Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams will also get some work with Ajayi and Sproles out.

Eagles | Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles ruled out Week 3 (Fri Sep 21, 01:56 PM) - Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) were ruled out Friday, Sept. 21, for the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Our View: Corey Clement is also questionable, but expected to play and the best play in this backfield against the Colts. Practice squad call-up Josh Adams will get work running between the tackles and Wendell Smallwood should also see increased snaps this week.
