Darren Sproles totaled 178 yards (152 rushing) and 1TD during his Week 2 Monday night outing against the Colts; LeSean McCoy ran the ball for 79 yards and 1TD on 20 carries and pulled in four passes for 23 yards. Nick Foles started off slow, but eventually pulled in 331 yards, 1TD and 1INT. On the Colts side of the ball, Andrew Luck threw for just 172 yards and was 20-of-34, but he threw 3TDs (and had 1INT).
SMITTY: Darren Sproles was a beast in this one, and should be considered high-powered RB2 the rest of the way in 2014. His role dips into McCoy’s receiving stats a touch, but it will balance out, as McCoy will get more rushing yardage. If drafting today, McCoy would still be a top 3 overall pick moving forward. What’s interesting to think about is where Sproles would be drafted if drafting for Weeks 3-16 only. As for those freaking out on Nick Foles… sure, he has 2INTs so far this year, but he is also averaging 326 passing yards per-game through two weeks, and has 3TDs… If he continued his pace, that would have him sitting at 5,216 passing yards. He won’t hit those totals, nor will he have just 24TDs, which is his current TD pace. The point is, it’s early, we have only seen two weeks of action, folks! Week 3 Power Rankings?
