Huddle Up: Smallwood shined at times last year during his rookie campaign, but it may be wishful thinking to believe he can carve out a significant role, at least for fantasy purposes, in the new season. After all, the Eagles signed workhorse LeGarrette Blount and drafted Donnel Pumphrey, not to mention they already have Darren Sproles, making it highly unlikely that Smallwood will be a consistent contributor in 2017.

Huddle Up: Smallwood could emerge as Philadelphia's starting back this season, but he could also be part of a committee. He has RB2 upside if things break in his favor, so keep tabs on him throughout the offseason.

Huddle Up: MCL sprains are typically multi-week injuries, so it's a good bet Smallwood will not be available again during the fantasy playoffs. Albeit with a few high points along the way, his rookie season has been something of a wash in Philadelphia's muddled backfield. With Darren Sproles also dealing with a concussion, Ryan Mathews could be featured in Week 15 versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Huddle Up: With Ryan Mathews sidelined again, it was a very disappointing performance for Smallwood and his fantasy owners. He will look to rebound in Week 14 against the Washington Redskins, but should be treated more as a RB3 for that matchup.

Huddle Up: The Eagles abandoned the ground game early in Week 12 when they fell behind against Green Bay, but a friendlier matchup against Cincinnati Sunday should mean more work for Smallwood. He is a potential flex option in standard formats and a low-priced sleeper in DFS games.

Huddle Up: Smallwood didn't do much against a Packers rush defense which is strong. If Ryan Mathews is able to return in Week 13, Smallwood's fantasy window of usefulness gets, well, smaller.

Huddle Up: With Mathews likely limited or out for a few weeks and Darren Sproles dealing with a rib injury, Smallwood could actually serve as something resembling a lead back in an offense that has shuffled through as many as four running backs this year. Kenjon Barner should mix in as well, but it sounds like Smallwood will have a chance to start fast against the decimated Green Bay Packers' defense in Week 12.

Huddle Up: Smallwood picked up the slack once both Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles exited with injuries. Smallwood might be a decent pick-up in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams as a flex fantasy option. If he gets a majority of the touches in the Philly backfield in Week 12 against the banged up Packers he could excel.

Huddle Up: Smallwood proved effective on his chances and could see more opportunity in the future. For now, though, he should be reserved for a difficult road matchup in Seattle in Week 11.

Huddle Up: Smallwood has shown some flashes, but with veterans Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles ahead of him, Smallwood is fighting with Kenjon Barner for scraps and can ill-afford any additional fumbles.

Huddle Up: At this point, Smallwood should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams. However, he could make a viable in-season option if the Eagles suffer an injury at the position.
Posted: 8/9/2016 10:53am ET
Huddle Up: Smallwood would need an injury ahead of him to crack fantasy rosters as more than a late-round flier. Keep an eye on him late in camp.

Huddle Up: That's three straight days now on the sidelines, which isn't helping the fifth-round rookie's quest to learn the offense and earn snaps.
Posted: 8/3/2016 1:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Training-camp injuries and absences are particularly tough for rookies, who need the reps and work to get up to speed in their new offenses at the pro level. Something to keep an eye on with a back who's on more than a few sleeper lists.
