Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles finished with three runs for just four yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game while adding three grabs for 21 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Sproles continues to defy Father Time, as there aren't many running backs able to do what he can at 35 years old. He is likely to be back in 2019, in Philadelphia or elsewhere, and he remains a decent low-end PPR fantasy option as long as he is around.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed a team-high 13 times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in a 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round Sunday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: The 13 carries were a season-high for Sproles, and while he was bottled up by the tough Chicago defense, the potential for a sizeable workload should have him on your fantasy radar for playoff contests ahead of a matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles has told teammates and coaches he could look into playing another season.
Huddle Up: The 35-year-old Sproles did miss 10 games due to a hamstring injury, but has averaged seven touches, 49.6 yards and totaled three TDs in five games since his Week 13 return. He's provided the Eagles with a spark down the stretch and most definitely could return in 2019 as part of a crowded Philly backfield.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles ran seven times for 24 yards in Week 17 against the Washington Redskins and he added two catches for 12 yards on three targets.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles rushed nine times for 32 yards in Week 16 against the Houston Texans and he added three grabs for 76 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Sproles is getting a little long in the tooth, but the diminutive and shifty veteran continues to get it done for fantasy owners. The Eagles head to Washington in Week 17 looking to sneak into the postseason.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles ran three times for 30 yards and caught three of his four targets for 16 more yards in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Although the other two-thirds of the Eagles' backfield (Josh Adams and Wendell Smallwood) were able to find the end zone, Sproles was once again as elusive as ever. The six touches in this game are his most in three games since returning from an extended absence due to hamstring, so Philadelphia is making a conscious effort to keep him healthy. While more usage in Week 16 against the Houston Texans' stiff run defense is a possibility, Sproles needs to be avoided in most leagues' championship game.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) rushed four times for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Dec. 3 in his first game in nearly three months.
Huddle Up: Sproles missed nearly three months due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. He will see a handful of touches per game down the stretch and he is more of a PPR option than someone to rely upon in standard fantasy play. The Eagles travel to meet the Cowboys in Week 14.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is slated to be used as a punt returner and will be 'in the mix on third downs' for Week 13's game against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Sproles was a limited participant in the team's first two practice sessions this week and has been sidelined since the season opener due to various hamstring issues, so the 35-year-old veteran may have quite a bit of rust to shake off. He's not worth starting outside of deep PPR leagues as a possible flex option right now.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) indicated he finally feels healthy and expects to play against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Dec. 3. Sproles also revealed he'd suffered two setbacks since the initial injury occurred.
Huddle Up: Sproles hasn't played since Week 1, so we'll see whether that makes him fresh or rusty. If you're desperate for help Sproles could be a viable pickup-and-play option in Week 13, particularly in PPR formats.
