Eagles' Carson Wentz loves when Darren Sproles is in the backfield
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said, "I love when [Darren] Sproles is in the game out there" as he discussed the running back's Week 2 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to TheEaglesWire's David Hennessey, Wentz raved about Sproles' role in both the running and passing games. His presence on screen plays and as a decoy in other passing situations has been key to Wentz' early-season success so it's likely that Sproles continues to get a heavy workload over the rest of the Eagles' backs.
Through a pair of games, Sproles has totaled 123 yards with an average of 6.9 FanDuel points on 12 rushes and 7 receptions this season. Listed at just $5,200, he's projected for 9.0 touches, 46.6 yards and 7.9 FanDuel points as he gets set to face the New York Giants in Week 3.
