The best chance the Eagles have on their roster of replacing Darren Sproles is second-year back Wendell Smallwood, but because of his limitations in pass protection, it is unlikely they will make him the featured back.

Related Players: LeGarrette Blount

Fantasy Impact:

Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich said Tuesday Smallwood would "no doubt" have an increased role, but how much remains to be seen. This will likely still be a split backfield with Blout and Smallwood, but fantasy owners are just hoping it doesn't become a 3-man RBBC again, even without Sproles for the rest of the season.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. New York Giants

Sproles is a FLEX consideration yet again in PPR leagues, after seeing his snap count increase from 49% to 69% percent in Week 2, again leading the Eagles in snaps and further increasing his hold on the role. The Giants are the fourth-toughest in our aFPA vs. PPR RB rankings. In two games against the Giants last year, Sproles averaged 12.2 PPR points. Expect 10-15 touches, and hopefully, he'll best the 2 receptions he recorded last week.
