Entering his final year in the NFL, Sproles is the one running back on the Eagles who has a fairly defined role. Sproles has tallied at least 52 receptions in each of the past two years, and should do so again here. Although the Redskins struggle against the run, they allowed the third-fewest PPR points to running backs last season, making Sproles less of an intriguing play than he usually is. Still, he's a guarantee to get a handful of touches, which always leaves him as a potential flex play.

Darren Sproles tore ACL in addition to breaking arm

Darren Sproles left Sunday's game against the New York Giants with what was reported at the time as an arm injury. As it turns out, Sproles reportedly has a torn ACL in addition to a broken arm, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He is scheduled to have surgery on his arm on Monday and knee surgery at a later date.

Fantasy Impact

While the arm injury would have sidelined Sproles for a period of time, he may have been able to avoid injured reserve, but a torn ACL ends his season and may very well end his career. Stash him on IR in dynasty leagues, but he can be dropped in all standard redraft leagues once the torn ACL is confirmed by the Eagles.
