Sproles is the lead back for Philly, which doesn't mean much with a committee, but he should be the safest play of the backfield, especially in PPR leagues.

Darren Sproles serves as lead back on Sunday

Darren Sproles carried the ball 10 times for 48 yards and caught two passes for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He was on the field for 50 offensive snaps on Sunday, while LeGarrette Blount played just six, as Sproles was clearly serving as the lead back for the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With Sproles, Blount, and Wendell Smallwood in the fold, it was assumed that the Eagles would run with some kind of running back committee this season, with Sproles resuming his usual change-of-pace and pass-catching roles. However, if Sunday is any indication, head coach Doug Pederson has soured on Blount and is leaning more on his other backs, specifically Sproles. Smallwood is worth grabbing as a handcuff if he is available on the waiver wire this week since the Eagles will likely not give the aging Sproles a large workload every week going forward.
