Miles Sanders could see 15-18 touches per game?

Miles Sanders is expected to see “15-to-18” touches per game, said NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

Fantasy Impact

Caplan predicts Sanders will see 12-13 carries and an expectation of three-to-four catches per contest. The Eagles reportedly have been searching for a RB to compliment Sanders. Devonta Freeman and Carlos Hyde are two of the backs the team has been linked too. Sanders is the heavy favorite to lead the backfield in touches. The 23-year-old ran for 818 yards on 179 carries and hauled in 50 receptions for 509 yards with six touchdowns across 16 games in 2019. Sanders is a PPR machine and is currently 12th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Miles Sanders 'entrenched' as Eagles' primary running back

Zach Berman of The Athletic writes that Miles Sanders is "entrenched" as the Eagles' top running back heading into the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

This is the first time since Doug Pederson became head coach in 2016 that Philadelphia has had such a clear-cut top option at the running back position. Jordan Howard departed as a free agent and Darren Sproles retired, which only leaves Boston Scott behind Sanders on the depth chart. Sanders, set to turn just 23 years old on May 1st, can be viewed as a borderline RB1 in fantasy heading into the summer.

Miles Sanders (knee) won't require off-season surgery

Miles Sanders (knee) says he won't require off-season surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders injured his knee in Sunday's Wild Card loss to the Seahawks but it doesn't appear to be a serious issue. Jordan Howard is a free agent now and if he leaves the team Sanders could see a lot more opportunity in his sophomore season. The 22-year-old rushed for 818 yards this year while adding an additional 509 through the air.

Miles Sanders rushes for 69 yards Sunday

Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 14 times for 69 yards and caught three passes for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders played through an ankle injury on Sunday and appeared to suffer an additional lower-body injury at one point in the game, but he returned after a brief absence. While he had a bit of a slow start to the season, Sanders emerged as a Rookie of the Year candidate and heads into 2020 as the clear-cut top running back in Philadelphia.

Miles Sanders avoids injury designation heading into the weekend

Eagles running back Miles Sanders (ankle) was a full participant in practice on Friday and avoided an injury designation ahead of the team's Wild Card Round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders left last week's game against the New York Giants with an ankle injury in the second quarter and was unable to return, leaving Boston Scott to carry the load despite Jordan Howard being active. Howard played just one snap last week, and it's unclear if he will have a more substantial role this week. The expectation here is that Sanders will step back into his recent role as the lead back, with Scott once again rotating in.
