Starter Backup to Own
LeGarrette Blount Darren Sproles (PPR)

Coach Doug Pederson has shown a troubling tendency to abandon the run in the early going. He went away from Darren Sproles after a solid first half against Kansas City, but as the Eagles’ pass-catching back, Sproles still saw a team-high 50 snaps with the Eagles playing from behind. Wendell Smallwood (above, 14 snaps) and LeGarrette Blount were only marginally involved, with Blount failing to draw even a single carry. A clearly disgruntled Blount directed reporters to “ask Doug Pederson” after the game. Sproles has logged more snaps than Blount and Smallwood combined, with his 59.6-percent share topping his career-best mark of 48.7 percent from a year ago. Even still, Sproles is only the RB29 in PPR formats. There’s simply no fantasy appeal in this backfield.
