|When Darren Sproles was released by the New Orleans Saints in 2013 it was hard to imagine he could maintain his value outside of the Saints offensive system, especially at 31 years od. However he’s caught 95 balls for 755 yards and has scored 10 total touchdowns with the Eagles in two seasons and even at age 33, some beat writers have called him the “best running back on the team”. Sproles may never see the 70-plus receptions that were commonplace during his three years with the Saints, but 60 receptions wouldn’t be surprising during his 2016 season. While Ryan Mathews is healthy, Sproles will likely be used in a backup role, seeing a handful of carries per game, but will retain value as a third-down back in PPR leagues. This is a system that allowed Jamaal Charles to be amongst the leading receivers at the RB position each year.
| Jordan Matthews leaves game with ankle injury|
WR Dorial Green-Beckham picks up slack (5-82-0) in loss to Packers

|Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews is dealing with an ankle injury in the aftermath of Monday's 27-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers. His playing status for Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals is unclear. (Bleacher Report)|
FFToday's Take: Matthews left the game and briefly returned before leaving for good shortly after the start of the second half. Dorial Green-Beckham is still a pretty raw receiver who frequently makes costly mistakes -- as he did on an offensive interference penalty that wiped out a long catch-and-run by Darren Sproles in the second half. If Matthews misses time, he'll be the Eagles default WR1, but expect Sproles and doghouse-occupying Nelson Agholor to get more targets in Week 13.

More reps for Smallwood?

|Still no Ryan Mathews. Even if he plays, likely won't be in similar role. Expect to see more Smallwood. (Zach Berman on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Mathews sprained his knee last week and even though the Eagles play on Monday night, Mathews is shaping up to be on the inactive list. Wendell Smallwood should get a bump in usage but Darren Sproles (ribs) and Kenjon Barner will also see action limiting the fantasy upside of all Eagle RBs.
