RB - PHI
This Week Outlook
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) will not play Week 17 vs. Washington.
The Eagles will be resting a lot of their starters in a meaningless game against Washington in Week 17. Fire up Boston Scott in DFS if you’re looking for a cheap starting running back option.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) isn't practicing on Friday.
Sanders was added to the injury report on Thursday and should be considered genuinely questionable for Week 17. Boston Scott would be a plug-and-play RB3 in PPR leagues should Sanders wind up sitting.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice but is reportedly "fine" and it's "nothing major" heading into the season finale against the Washington Football Team.
Sanders found the end zone against the Cowboys in Week 16, rushing for 57 yards and adding another 27 yards through the air. Based on his participation in practice and reports of the knee injury not being a major setback, Sanders availability still seems good against Washington in Week 17. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status heading into Sunday night.
Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 15 times for 57 yards and one touchdown and caught four of his six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Sanders has seen more work with Jalen Hurts at quarterback, but Eagles head coach Doug Pederson appeared to abandon the running game again once the team was losing in the second half on Sunday. The young running back has not received 20 or more touches in a game since Week 3 against the Bengals and faces a stout Washington defensive front in Week 17.
Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 17 times for 64 yards and caught one of his two targets for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Sanders averaged 3.8 yards per carry on Sunday and was unable to find his way into the end zone, resulting in a somewhat disappointing output in what was a playoff matchup for many fantasy managers. He does have a very favorable matchup against the Cowboys in Week 16, however.
