Darren Sproles INACTIVE Week 15

Darren Sproles is inactive for Week 15, as expected. Sproles has not yet been cleared according to the NFL's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Impact

With Sproles out and Wendell Smallwood on injured reserve, the Eagles will rely on Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner. Sproles has value in PPR leagues, but now owners will have to look elsewhere. Barner is not a reliable replacement for Sproles this week, as his workload is not yet clear.

Darren Sproles ruled OUT for Week 15

Darren Sproles has been ruled out by head coach Doug Pederson for Week 15's matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, as Sproles is still recovering from a concussion he suffered last week.

Fantasy Impact

This was expected after Sproles took a vicious hit to the head while attempting to return a punt last week against the Washington Redskins. Sproles had some value in PPR leagues as a flex option, but owners will have to look elsewhere this week. Ryan Mathews will likely see an increased workload, and Kenjon Barner will also be active and enter the game on passing downs.

Darren Sproles not practicing Thursday

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles (concussion) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Sproles, who is in the league's concussion protocol, missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday and is on track to be ruled out for Sunday's game against Baltimore. With Wendell Smallwood sidelined for the rest of the season and Sproles expected to be designated inactive this week, Ryan Mathews is in line for an expanded workload with Kenjon Barner likely being sprinkled in as the change of pace back for Week 15. However, Mathews is a risky fantasy option facing Baltimore's 32nd ranked defense in fantasy production allowed to opposing RBs.

Darren Sproles in concussion protocol

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Impact

Sproles sustained a concussion during Sunday's loss to Washington. He left the game after taking a cheap shot to the head and did not return. His status for Week 15 is in question.

Darren Sproles scores TD, leaves with injury

Darren Sproles had five carries for 27 yards and two receptions for 13 yards. He also caught a short pass for a touchdown right before halftime. However, Sproles left the game after getting hit on what was classified as a "cheap shot" as he was fielding a punt in the fourth quarter and was unable to return to the game.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the touchdown reception, Sproles had an uneventful day for his fantasy owners. He would likely have had a better day had he not left with an injury, because the Eagles had to move the ball a lot in the fourth quarter and there is no doubt that Sproles would have played a significant part in their attempted comeback. It is unclear if Sproles will take the field in Week 15, because of the head injury he suffered. If he does play, Sproles remains a low end RB2 or high flex play in PPR leagues. Monitor his status throughout the week before putting him in lineups.
