Darren Sproles should see 50+ receptions for the Eagles fast paced offense and is more of a PPR asset than in standard leagues.
Darren McFadden is still a very talented running back with RB1 skills but is a perennial injury risk who will be in a time-share with Maurice Jones-Drew leaving him as an upside RB3 option.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
An interesting fit in Philly offense, but McCoy's presence limits Sproles' role.
An obvious injury risk, but he's still a better bet than a washed-up MJD.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
On my 2014 all sleeper team.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
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.
He'll be back in Oakland on a one-year deal but will be battling veteran stud MJD for playing time.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
How is he going to be used? He was regressing in 2013 but he can still provide value if his role is big enough.
McFadden still has talent and upside. He's never healthy and MJD is a problem, though.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 
McFadden surprisingly signed a one-year contract to stay in Oakland. He was limited to 114 carries for 379 yards and five touchdowns in a contract year. He is likely to be the backup to MJD, but it remains to be seen how that timeshare ends up being split.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
With MJD in the house he will lose most of his upside. He has a lot to prove this year and he could be a RB with upside. He is still a gamble of a pick so make sure he is not one of your starters until he can prove he is worthy.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Still a solid RB3 in PPR formats in the high-volume Chip Kelly offense.
2nd fiddle to MJD seems likely for the injury prone back who closed out '13 in a backup role.
