Fantasy Impact:

Sproles had been pondering retirement after missing much of the last two seasons due to various injuries, namely a torn ACL that ended his 2017 season and a hamstring strain that delayed the start of his 2018 campaign by 11 weeks. The Eagles have maintained all along that they were interested in bring Sproles back, and he will join a crowded backfield in Philadelphia. The Eagles traded for running back Jordan Howard and drafted Miles Sanders this offseason, and they are returning Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Donnel Pumphrey, and Boston Scott. The return of Sproles could affect some of the playing time and touches for Howard, Sanders, and Clement, and could mean that any or all of the other four could be on the outside looking in when the final roster is announced.
