Despite questions on his usage as a true running back, and more of a scatback 'joker,' Darren Sproles iterated that he is a running back. Chip Kelly confirmed this, correcting reporters who incorrectly listed him as a receiver. However, Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis iterated how dangerous Sproles is in space, "He's such a receiving threat and an open-field threat. You put him in the box between the tackles, OK. You put him in space against some of our defensive backs? That man is tough." (Source: Philly.com)

Fantasy Impact: Regardless of where he lines up, Sproles will be catching a decent amount of balls in the Eagles offense, and the sheer volume of plays that the Eagles will run can only aid the amount of plays he'll see, and passes he'll catch. We imagine Sproles won't see too many inside rushing attempts because of his size (being the 2nd shortest player in the NFL) and also age (31). Sproles is an RB3 in PPR formats.

Still a solid RB3 in PPR formats in the high-volume Chip Kelly offense.

He had a rough 2013, but if you are in a PPR league and want to find a player with potential upside then you can take a chance on Sproles. He should see some work in Chip Kelly's offense.

Darren has signed with the Eagles now and will play in another high octane offense. His numbers should stay about the same as Chip Kelly finds creative ways to use the versatile RB.

Darren Sproles should see 50+ receptions for the Eagles fast paced offense and is more of a PPR asset than in standard leagues.

In the intro to last year’s Strategery piece – warning, I was very high on Darren Sproles in PPR formats – I discussed my ol’ ball coach, Bo Ryan, and one of his favorite sayings – perfect practice makes perfect – while discussing the value of mock drafts as a way to hone one’s draft day strategy. What happened nine months later? Bo led his Badgers to a Fi...
