Lineups
Doug Pederson has never run his backfield with a clear-cut workhorse, but he's also never had a running back as talented as Miles Sanders. In his rookie season, Sanders finished as a top-15 PPR running back despite sharing work with Jordan Howard. With Howard now in Miami and no veterans coming in to take his place, Sanders is going to take on a massive role in the Philly offense. As the lead back on a clearEkeler finished as the RB4 in PPR leagues last season despite sharing backfield work with Melvin Gordon who's now on the Broncos. However, I'm a little hesitant to jump to conclusions with his projection for this season as Philip Rivers is also gone from the team. Rivers has always been a QB who peppers his running backs with targets and last season was no different as Ekeler hauled in 92 catches. Replacing Rivers is Tyrod Taylor, a scrambling QB who has historically not thrown to his running backs. Ekeler will get a significant increase in his carry count with Gordon out, but I don't see him getting enough targets to make him a top-5 guy again.

Having improved his passing-game skills as his rookie season progressed, Sanders ended up emerging as the lead back in a relatively crowded Philadelphia backfield. He's the clear-cut lead back with Jordan Howard now in Miami.Melvin Gordon's 2019 holdout resulted in Ekeler racking up 490 scrimmage yards, 24 receptions and six touchdowns over four September games prior to Gordon's return. With Gordon having left for Denver, Ekeler will be the Chargers' main man in 2020.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The Miles Sanders hype is growing as he continues to slide up drafts, often going in the first round. This does remind me a lot of Dalvin Cook last year and that's not the worst comp. The key difference is that the Vikings are one-man show with Cook only limited by his fitness while the Eagles steadfastly refuse to go with a true workhorse. If that changes, Sanders could be a league winner, but it's also possible the Eagles return to their pass-first roots and Sanders becomes an RB2. I'm all for the risk, but not at a first round price. There's a heap of high-upside RBs in this area but Sanders is my favorite for a second round gamble. Pair him with a safe option like Henry, Mixon, Chubb or Jacobs and you're golden.I'm very torn on Austin Ekeler in 2019 and could see myself slotting him in anywhere from RB8 to RB 14 in half-ppr before the pre-season concludes. He remains a pass-catching monster but I'm not yet convinced he'll provide enough volume in the running game to justify a first-round pick. I expect a slight reduction in the quality of this attack overall with Philip Rivers gone and I could also see Joshua Kelley or Justin Jackson chipping into his goal line and between-the-tackles work. Ultimately, this really comes down to your risk-aversion. In PPR he'll be a monster but otherwise, he's a risk you may choose to avoid. If he's sitting there in the second round though, he's going to be very hard for me to pass up on.

 Gordon vacated touches, improved Offensive Line, projection model darling, finally "THE" guy
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We all know Doug Pederson has loved his timeshares since coming to the Eagles, and after they moved on from Jordan Howard, many expected them to add a running back in the draft. Things can change, as there are a few free agent running backs out there, but for now, Sanders has the looks of a 15-plus touch running back.After seeing Ekeler's contract extension this offseason, it seemed a little light for a workhorse, leading many to believe they'd draft a running back early on. They waited until the fourth round to select UCLA's Joshua Kelley, who's a bigger complementary back. The Chargers offense isn't likely going to be as high scoring as it was with Philip Rivers under center, but Ekeler remains the top dog in the backfield. Still, don't just anticipate this offense is going to be as potent, or that he'll have as many scoring opportunities, which is why he's best-suited as a high-end RB2 than an RB1.
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
If Pederson commits, Sanders has a chance to finish as a top five back. His ADP is reasonable, and his ceiling is eliteMelvin Gordon left and Ekeler remains. Some of the vacated carries and targets should funnel his way, while touchdown totals project to decline
Frank Bonincontri

Coach Pederson has handed the reigns to Sanders and I for one believe in this guy. The longer Carson Wentz stays healthy, the better this guy will be.Hoping he can hold up between the tackles for an entire season. If not, expect Jackson to bite into those goal line TDs, but its not enough to scare me off, the guy is a playmaker for real..

61 players have put up 800 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards since 2000. Miles Sanders ranks 61st in total touches of the group. I don't think people understand how impressive his rookie year was. He has the chance to really blow up this season, I am all in.

Very impressive rookie season in which he was extremely efficient as a receiver. Joins Kamara as the only rookie RB with over 8 YPT on 60 or more targets since 2000. Chance to be an elite RB in fantasy if given workhorse opportunity in Philly.Top 5 finish last year. Unlikely to be true workhorse, but will be the lead back in what should be an underrated offense. Tyrod at QB may hinder Ekeler's receiving production, but overall Ekeler is a special player and we want to be chasing this type of profile.

Was Top 12 fantasy RB from Weeks 11-17 with workload volume (18.6 touches per) that should carry over as lead RB in 2020Averaged better than 1.0 FAN PTS/TOUCH in Half PPR formats each of his 3 seasons, and if he can maintain that with a QB change in 2020, another RB Top 10 finish likely

Sanders is everybody's favorite breakout candidate in 2020 and I can understand the appeal but I still believe his current ADP is a little too high. He plays in an offense that is known for their usage of multiple backs and he's only started 11 career games, I need to see more out of Sanders before looking at him as an RB1.Ekeler finally gets the starting role in LA but he also loses his dump off heavy QB - Philip Rivers. Now he'll have the combination of Justin Herbert and Tyrod Taylor to get him the football. With Herbert likely to be the starter sooner rather than later, I like Ekeler's chances of finishing inside the 10 at RB.

Eagles RBs, although consistently utilized as a RBBC group in the past, have put up the fourth most fantasy points for RBs over the past five seasons. There are fantasy points there for the taking in this offense and a RB who put up 1300 yards in his rookie season is poised to take control of that backfield. Boston Scott and Co.'s potential role in the offense is not even worth mentioning.In .5 PPR leagues last season, Austin Ekeler (14.71 PPG) actually performed better than Miles Sanders (14.36 PPG) in the second half of the season. Sanders is getting loads of love while Ekeler has been more of a forgotten stud. Ekeler did not have a game with double-digit rushes after Week 4 last season and was still an RB1. He'll get it done, no matter what.

Sanders emerged as the lead back in Philly with 1,327 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns. Philly usually uses a RBBC, which caps his RB1 upside. If they give him lead back duties and he sees 250-275 touches, he could emerge as a RB1 in 2020.Ekeler had 1,550 yards from scrimmage and 11 touchdowns while splitting touches with RB Melvin Gordon for 12 games. Gordon leaving for Denver should give him an increased workload, but Ekeler's quarterback situation is less than ideal and they added Joshua Kelley in the NFL Draft, which could create another RBBC.

Sanders seems locked in to be the "main guy" in this backfield at this point of the offseason. While I still believe these other RBs will take away some work, Sanders should see over 270 touches in 2020. He's a high-end RB2 with top-10 upside right now.Ekeler should see a drop-off in overall targets with Tyrod Taylor now at QB, but it won't be as much as some people are projecting. Ekeler's chances of repeating as the RB6 simply aren't there again this season, but he's going to be a fantastic RB2 option for your roster.

Being the clear receiving back provides a safe floor(63 targets in 2019). The lack of other pass catching options might've helped his target count but that's a problem for another day. He was able to prove he can be productive with his receptions. He played 52% of the snaps, and this was with Howard missing a bunch of time. Would like to see that playing time increase but on the plus side, was the largest share of playing time since LeSean McCoy in 2014. Would've like to see more decisive cuts behind PFFs best graded run blocking line. Not going to get better with Brooks gone.I'm bad at ranking outliers. Had a career high 132 carries last year, yet to go over 560 rushing yards. Makes his money in the passing game, which now unknown. Can't be more efficient than last year: 108 targets, 92 receptions. I think it would be safe(?) to pencil him in for 1000 total yards and 5 TDs. Which would put him in the RB20s range. 20 touches a game without Gordon(4 games)23.75ppg 12 touches a game with Gordon(12 games)14ppg. 6 rushes a game with Gordon The Chargers were 28th in att last year and that still leaves almost 17 rushing attempts per year Gordon also got a healthy 55 targets in his 12 games, albeit with Rivers, Melvin also paced as RB11 after his return

Jordan Howard has been removed. No rookie competition added. When Howard was out, Sanders became Pederson's first true horse: 85%, 84%, 87%, 56%, 71%, and 82% of the snaps. This 75% threshold had been crossed only 1 other time in Pederson's 57 previous games. Sanders was the RB3 over this span, and has minimal competition from remaining "The Guy" in 2020. Is Carlos Hyde going to. come in and fuck this all up?Back on a huge deal, suggesting he'll remain a focal point -- even moreso than when he was the RB4 in PPR. Avoided any major Draft Day additions as well (only 4th rounder Josh Kelley added)... Ekeler has top-3 upside.
