Sproles being phased out?

Is it just me or is sproles being used less and less in the offense. The only reason I ask is because I have him on my fantasy team so I notice things like this. I used to see him lined up in the slot all the time as well as out wide. Plus I used to see him as the outlet out the backfield but not so much these days

good question
I will say that he did not look good on the 2 punts he did not field, and then one later he fair caught with no one around

if he gets phased out of the offense because he's not performing well on special teams, Payton is the worst coach ever. that makes ZERO sense...

Sproles has been banged up this season out with a concussion doesn't look like he is playing at 100 %.

I was thinking something similar. He's a catalyst in our offense and it seems we've been under-utilizing him.

I was thinking injury could be the reason but he looks fine when he's returning the ball. He's usually a matchup problem along with graham but right now I hardly see him lining up.

Saving him for the playoffs could be reason for the lack of play...

If Brees and company keep fumbling around there won't be a playoffs.
