Eagles trade for Darren Sproles

ESPN - [Full Article]

Running back Darren Sproles, who Wednesday expressed a desire to be released by the New Orleans Saints, will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, a league source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Saints will receive a fifth-round draft pick from the Eagles in return, the source said Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: 

The thought of Sproles playing for Chip Kelly is intriguing, but snaps will be an issue playing behind LeSean McCoy. Sproles spent a good amount of time in the slot while in New Orleans, so he and McCoy could play together if Kelly decides to go that route. He'll still be a factor in PPR leagues, though his days of being a PPR RB1 are probably behind him. In New Orleans, the Saints will run with a trio of Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson, but Travaris Cadet could become a poor man's Darren Sproles in Sean Peyton's offense.
