2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Chris Polk started the season ranked third on the running back depth chart, but passed Bryce Brown while averaging an impressive 6.5 yards per carry in his limited action. Polk is one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy football since he has the talent to thrive and will see plenty of carries in an offense that finished fourth in rushing attempts in 2013. Polk's shoulder issues, which caused him to go undrafted out of Washington, should be resolved after a surgery in the offseason. The team seems confident enough in his health that they shipped off Brown in a draft day trade. At 5'11” and 222 pounds, Polk is a power back that rarely fumbles and can grind out yards inside. It would likely require a LeSean McCoy injury for Polk to have any value – outside of handcuff value – in all but the deepest of leagues. If the McCoy owner leaves him on the waiver wire, though, Polk could be a difference maker in fantasy leagues should an opportunity arise.

Polk becoming Eagles' new goal-line back
Eagles own one of the worst red-zone offenses in NFL
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 18, 4:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
It appears Chris Polk has become the Eagles' goal-line specialist. He played three snaps against the Cowboys Sunday and two were short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the 5, Darren Sproles got the carry and scored. LeSean McCoy led the NFL in rushing last year and is on pace for 1,293 yards this year, fourth-most in the NFL. But the Eagles have struggled in the red zone all year, and the Eagles believe Polk’s size and power give him an advantage through traffic near the end zone. The switch from McCoy to Polk deep in the red zone has helped the Eagles address what was the worst red-zone offense in the NFL through 12 games. (CSN Philly)

FFToday's Take: In his six-year career, McCoy has 64 carries inside the 5-yard line with 24 touchdowns and 24 runs for no gain or a loss. Polk is a free agent at the end of the year, so it is quite possible that McCoy gets another chance next season. For now, McCoy needs to be considered a RB2 with RB1 upside in the right matchup.


Injury Sproles likely to miss a few weeks
Avoids ACL tear

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles running back Darren Sproles won’t miss the rest of the season but will likely be sidelined a few weeks, according to a source familiar with the veteran tailback’s condition. Sproles injured his knee late in the third quarter Sunday night against the Giants, (CSNPhilly)

FFToday's Take: Sproles avoided a severe knee injury but will likely be on the sidelines for the Eagles next game in Week 8 against the Cardinals. Philadelphia has a bye in Week 7. With Chris Polk out with a hamstring injury, the team may sign a running back (Matthew Tucker?) in the near future.
