Strength of Schedule

Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
Being viewed as the starting running back should lead us to believe that Sproles will touch the ball the most of the committee forming in Philly. With Joe Haden locking down the outside, this could turn into a Zach Ertz and Sproles short passing game. Sproles makes for a decent RB2 and someone to target in the flex spot.
Rushing: 20 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 23 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
If the only two players in front of you on the depth chart either left town (DeMarco Murray to the Titans) or are made of glass (current starter Ryan Mathews), would you feel like you had a decent shot at a career year? Such is the situation Sproles finds himself in for 2016. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues have long known the upside of using a mid-round pick on the speedy Sproles, as his time in New Orleans and Philly have resulted in numerous high-reception and touchdown years no matter who is starting in front of him. But let's get real here. Sproles is 33-years old, has yet another head coach, coordinator, and offensive philosophy, and the drama of a volatile quarterback situation that seems unlikely to resolve itself in the coming months. There's also the emerging presence of rookie RB Wendell Smallwood. So what is there to like for fantasy owners? Let others chase the production of previous years and put any idea of Sproles having a career year in 2016 out to pasture.

Rushing: 600 Yards, 2 TD.
Receiving: 85 Receptions, 700 Yards, 6 TD.
