Sproles may be old, but he has been an RB3 or better in 5 of the past 6 years he was healthy including two years ago. The Eagles are saying he will start, and while his workload will clearly be limited, it should be enough to warrant flex starts once the bye weeks and injuries roll in.

Darren Sproles favorite to start in Philadelphia?

While it's obviously early in the preseason, an NJ.com article predicts that soon-to-be 35-year-old veteran running back Darren Sproles "will likely be the starter out of respect for the fact he is a veteran." The article also suggests that Jay Ajayi would be third on the depth chart behind Sproles and Corey Clement and would likely finish third in touches.

Fantasy Impact

Expectations are that the Eagles will use a committee, with Ajayi leading the team in carries, while Sproles and Clement end up with more touches due to their roles in the passing game. Sproles was limited to three games in 2017 before breaking his arm and tearing his ACL. The Philadelphia backfield will be difficult to handicap, but Sproles looks like a terrific late-round stash that is going unselected in most early drafts
