RB - PHI
A source told Eagles insider Adam Caplan that 3rd-year RB Boston Scott offers something “different, some juice” out of the backfield for Philadelphia.
The longer we wait for the Eagles to sign a veteran running back to complement Miles Sanders, the more likely it becomes that Scott begins to see his role in the Eagles offense increase. He’s received lots of offseason praise from the Philadelphia coaching staff, and maybe he’s ultimately the backup and change-of-pace guy to Sanders. If that’s the case, Scott will surely make some noise for fantasy owners, especially in PPR leagues. Last season, he caught 26 of his 28 targets in the final five games. Scott certainly has stand-alone value in Philadelphia, and should also be considered the primary handcuff for Sanders owners at this point.
According to The Athletic Philadelphia, Eagles RB Boston Scott will be competing for more of an offensive role this Summer, rather than competing for a roster spot.
After a coming out party in the back half of the 2019 season, Philadelphia feels comfortable with Scott as a change of pace and third-down back for the Eagles. Miles Sanders will of course take over as the starter in Philadelphia, but Scott is certain to play in a complementary role. In his final four games last season, Scott averaged 87.5 yards from scrimmage. He’s currently ranked RB #55 in FantasyPros Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR). His value could increase if the Eagles don’t end up signing a veteran RB as has been rumored. Even with another back in Philadelphia, look for Scott to maintain standalone value as an RB4 or RB5 this season.
Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed six times for 25 yards and caught three passes for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
An unknown member of the Philadelphia practice squad earlier this season, Scott emerged as a weapon for the offense in the second half of the season after a number of injuries depleted the active roster. He should have a role as a pass-catching, change-of-pace back in Philadelphia in 2020 behind Miles Sanders and could have some appeal in deeper PPR formats depending on what the Eagles' roster looks like heading into next season.
Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns and caught four passes for 84 yards in Sunday's win over the New York Giants.
With Miles Sanders leaving with an ankle injury on Sunday, Scott took over as the lead back and one of the offense's top weapons. He led the team in both rushing and receiving and scored three touchdowns to help lead the Eagles to a win over the Giants. If Sanders misses next week's game against the Seahawks and Jordan Howard once again serves in an emergency-only role, Scott could once again see a large workload.
Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed three times for 12 yards and caught six passes for just seven yards in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
While Scott's six catches were nice for PPR leagues, he did not offer much additional production. With Miles Sanders seeing the bulk of the work at running back, Scott is a rotational back who will do most of his damage through the air.
