RB - PHI
Zach Berman of The Athletic writes that Jamel Singleton, the Eagles’ new running backs coach, downplayed the idea of an "every-down" guy.
“It all depends on your room,” Singleton said. There are very specific skill sets you need in your room. You need a first- and second-down runner with that really elite ability. You need a guy that can pass protect on third down and be short yardage. You need a back that can run routes and you can put him out in empty. It’s really a combination of that. I think the days of, ‘he’s an every-down back,’ that’s a little skewed these days because of the speed, because of the contact.” By no means is this an indication that Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott will see a lot of work, but it certainly isn't the kind of quote that Miles Sanders supporters want to hear. Philadelphia also brought in Jordan Howard and Kerryon Johnson this offseason, so maybe gamers should start reading more into what the Eagles are telling us. Sanders currently looks like a risky RB2 selection right now.
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.
