Eagles' Murray on RB rotation: 'I don't think it will be alternating series'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/27/15) With DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles on the roster, the Eagles have a plethora of running backs with NFL experience and the question on everyone's mind is: How will coach Chip Kelly split up the playing time?
Murray, who signed a five-year contract reportedly worth $42 million in the offseason, was asked his opinion on the matter Tuesday.
"I don't think it will be alternating series," Murray said, per CSNphilly.com. "But [Mathews] is a quality back, great guy, works extremely hard. I'm sure he'll get his fair share of touches. But I don't know how the rotation will be yet, we haven't touched on it."
Murray said he is unsure how many snaps he will get in the third preseason games against the Packers on Saturday, but it could be a good indication on how he will be used during the regular season since it is the penultimate preseason game.
"I think we're approaching it like a regular game," Murray said. "You can't go out there with a preseason mindset. We're focused, whether it's playing one snap or 40 snaps."
Eagles to get RB Darren Sproles on the field more
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Eagles head coach Chip Kelly told reporters at the NFL meetings on Wednesday that he would like to get running back Darren Sproles on the field more often in 2015, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Eagles recently signed running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews in free agency.
Sproles came over from the Saints after beginning his career with the Chargers. Over his 10-year career, he has rushed for 2,550 yards and 17 touchdowns. As an option as a receiver out of the backfield, he has 418 receptions for 3,768 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Eagles plan to spread the ball around with Murray, Mathews, Sproles
|(3/12/15) After signing running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews on Thursday, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made it clear that he plans on spreading the ball around in the running game. He also said that he doesn't envision Murray being a workhorse back in the Eagles offense.
Murray and Mathews will be added to a backfield that recently lost LeSean McCoy in a trade to the Bills, but the team still has Darren Sproles. The head coach states that Sproles will still remain an integral part of the offense.
"Darren (Sproles) is a Swiss army knife. You can use him in a million different ways", says Kelly.
Eagles announce three-year deal with RB Ryan Mathews
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(3/12/15) Free agent running back Ryan Mathews signed a three-year deal with the Eagles, the team announced. The team did not disclose the money, but reports indicate Mathews will receive $11.5 million.
Mathews joined Philly despite the team also landing DeMarco Murray, the reigning NFL rushing leader. Earlier reports suggested Mathews might back out of his agreement once it became clear the Eagles also were signing Murray.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport called Murray and Mathews an "incredible duo," but the crowded backfield also includes Darren Sproles and Chris Polk.
An ankle injury limited Mathews to six games with San Diego last season, but in 2013 he rushed for 1,255 yards.

Marques Colston pins Saints struggles on loss of Darren Sproles
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) The Saints fell from 11-5 in 2013 to 7-9 last year, and WR Marques Colston blames an offseason change for the dropoff.
Appearing on a radio show with Ron Jaworski, Colston pinpointed the Saints' 2014 problems on the loss of RB Darren Sproles.
"When you lose a guy that has produced at that high of a level and don't have an immediate replacement planned for him, you're going to struggle at times when those crucial situations," Colston said. "When you know exactly the matchup you're going to get, the look you're going to get and what you're going to get out of that player--when you don't have that, and it's kind of an unknown, it kind of makes game planning that more difficult."
|Eagles running back Darren Sproles is the type of player who is better for his team than Fantasy owners. Whether it's as a running back or return man, Sproles usually has the chance to make one or two plays that could impact a game. Sometimes that helps Fantasy owners, but mostly, especially in 2014, it's just a good play for his team. Sproles had 57 carries for 329 yards and six touchdowns and 40 catches for 387 yards last year, his first in Philadelphia. He also added 39 punt returns for 506 yards and two touchdowns for owners in leagues that reward return yardage. In standard Fantasy leagues, Sproles reached double digits in points just twice, and his 40 catches were his lowest total since 2008. He now has to share playing time with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, which should lower his production. In standard leagues, Sproles is just worth a late-round pick. And in PPR formats, he's worth a mid-round selection with the hope his 40 catches go up. Eagles fans should love Sproles, but he's just a mediocre Fantasy option at this point of his career.
