Darren Sproles becoming impossible to gauge
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/14) Neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard likes Darren Sproles for Week 5, ranking him outside their top 30 at running back, and I'm right there with them.

It's not that I don't think he could be as productive against the Rams as he was against the Jaguars and Colts in Weeks 1 and 2. On the contrary, St. Louis ranks 30th against the run, allowing 155.0 yards per game. It's just that his role is too unpredictable to assume it. Last week in a lopsided loss at San Francisco, you can kind of understand him disappearing, but why did it happen Week 3 against Washington, especially with starting back LeSean McCoy struggling so badly?

Granted, Sproles doesn't need as many touches as most running backs to make an impact in Fantasy. He's a threat to go all the way every time he touches the ball. But with inconsistent touches, his boom-or-bust tendencies become even more pronounced.

In what should be a winnable game, the Eagles' first priority will probably be to resuscitate LeSean McCoy, so Sproles could play an even smaller role than usual. Or he could play a bigger one if the Eagles jump out to an early lead. My thinking is why take the chance in a week when so many of the best running backs are available with so few teams on bye?

Darren Sproles scores on 82-yard punt return
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) Eagles running back Darren Sproles scooted 82 yards for a touchdown on a punt return against the 49ers, the fourth punt-return score of his career. Sproles' previous long was a 77-yard return for the Saints in 2009. Through four games, Sproles has 196 punt return yards -- 25 more than the Eagles recorded as a team last season.

Aside from one electric play, however, Sproles made little impact. He caught two of four targets for 2 yards and rushed once for 4 yards.

Sproles plays the Rams in Week 5.

Darren Sproles held in check Sunday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/14) Eagles running back Darren Sproles put together a pedestrian performance in Week 3, a 37-34 win over Washington.  

After finding ways to produce in each of the team's first two games, Sproles was mostly silent Sunday. He rushed the ball just two times for 20 yards, while adding just 30 yards on three receptions. Sproles also lost his first fumble of the season, while being held out of the end zone for the first time.

Despite Sunday's subpar outing, Sproles still has 313 yards from scrimmage on 31 touches through three games. He will look to get back on track in Week 4 against the 49ers. 

Nick Foles headed for best game of year
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is set up for a good game in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Foles started one game against the Redskins in Week 11 last year, and it was the last time he failed to throw a touchdown. He still managed 21 Fantasy points with 298 passing yards, 47 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Foles has yet to hit the 20-point mark this year, but he does have at least 18 Fantasy points in consecutive weeks. While the Redskins have been stout against the pass through two games, they've done it against Ryan Fitzpatrick and Chad Henne.

Foles and the Eagles are a tougher test, especially with Philadelphia maximizing Darren Sproles, who is a nice sleeper this week. We expect Foles to crack 20 Fantasy points for the first time this week. 

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Darren Sproles goes off for 152 receiving yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) Eagles coach Chip Kelly knows how to create mismatches with Darren Sproles, and Sproles exploited nearly every one of them in Monday's 30-27 win in Indianapolis. The diminutive running back caught seven passes for a career-high 152 yards and rushed four times for 26 yards and a touchdown.

Counting his 25 yards on four punt returns, Sproles amassed 203 total yards. Sproles got going on the Eagles' second drive, beating linebacker Josh McNary on a crossing route and racing 57 yards. Late in the third quarter, Sproles bounced off three tacklers for a 19-yard touchdown run.

He scooted 51 yards on a screen pass in the fourth quarter, sparking a touchdown drive that tied it at 27. With under two minutes left, Sproles took another screen 17 yards to set up the winning field goal. It was a virtuoso performance by Sproles, who caught all seven of his targets. All but four of his receiving yards came after the catch.

He'll take on the Redskins in Week 3.
