Eagles beat writer Mike Kaye believes Philadelphia doesn’t need to add a veteran running back and that Miles Sanders has the ability to be a three-down back in the NFL. (

Fantasy Impact:

The Eagles have been rumored to have interest in veteran free agents Devonta Freeman and LeSean McCoy, although nothing has come to fruition to-date. Kaye believes Sanders has the versatility to push the Eagles away from using a RBBC approach that has been widely speculated. Boston Scott should operate as a change-of-pace back, but Sanders is likely to shoulder the brunt of the workload in the Philadelphia backfield. Sanders could be on his way to a top-5 finish should he be the three-down back people expect him to be. If the Eagles bring in a veteran however, expectations can be tempered a bit, but he’s still a sure fire RB1 this season.
