2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Oct-03-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (10/3): After a couple down seasons, Darren Sproles is back to his old self as a PPR monster. In three games, Sproles already has 15 receptions, which puts him just off a career-best pace. Add a respectable 17 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown, and you've got yourself a weekly flex option in PPR leagues.

In his first season with the Eagles, Sproles finished with just 97 touches and a six-year low in catches (40). The Eagles struggled to connect with him in open space as he posted a career-low 64.5 percent catch rate. Sproles' catch rate was well more than 70 percent from 2010-13. His big-play ability remains intact (5.8 yards per carry, 9.7 yards per catch). This season, he will once again see most of his action on passing downs. In order to have any Fantasy value, Sproles needs to catch at least 60 balls. This seems highly unlikely with two other backs on the team who have receiving skills. Last season, Philly completed only 71 passes to its RBs for 558 yards and no touchdowns. Sproles is nothing more than deep insurance.

11.04 Scout Fantasy - @CoolCutter21 - I think the Eagles are going to utilize him in the passing game more this season. He could be a steal in PPR leagues. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:25:29 p.m. ET 2015)
