Miles Sanders gets bottled up by Atlanta on Sunday Night Football

Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught three passes for nine yards in Sunday night's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles were held to 49 yards rushing on the night, so Sanders was not alone in his struggles against the Atlanta defense. The rookie running back now has just 53 yards rushing through the team's first two games as he shares the backfield with Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles.

Miles Sanders leads team in carries but offers little production

Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders carried the ball 11 times for 25 yards and caught one pass for two yards in the team's Week 1 win over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles struggled to consistently get things going in their ground game on Sunday and rotated Sanders, Jordan Howard, and Darren Sproles into the game. It looks like Sanders will have a regular role in the Philadelphia running back committee, but it also looks like Doug Pederson's approach to the position limits the fantasy appeal of all of the Philadelphia running backs.

Miles Sanders not starting Sunday but will have a role

Eagles rookie running back Miles Sanders is reportedly not starting in the team's Week 1 matchup against Washington but is expected to have a role as part of a running back committee.

Fantasy Impact

After a strong training camp and preseason, many expect Sanders to take over as the starting running back in Philadelphia at some point this season. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson likes to run a committee at the running back position rather than utilizing a bell cow back, so the "starter" designation doesn't always mean a lot in Philadelphia. While Sanders is not starting, look for him to rotate into the game and see touches, though the flow of the game will dictate just how many touches he receives.

Mile Sanders set for an early role

Miles Sanders will have in early role in Philadelphia’s offense, said Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders is sharing the backfield with Jordan Howard, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement. It remains to be seen how the touches will be divided among the three running backs. Sanders figures to play a key part of the offense. If he can make the most of his opportunities in the beginning, this would lead to an increased workload as the season progresses.

Miles Sanders suits up but does not see any touches Thursday

Eagles running back Miles Sanders suited up for the team's third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday but did not see any touches in the game outside of kneeling the opening kickoff for a touchback.

Fantasy Impact

The team has clearly been impressed by Sanders this preseason, and their decision not to play him on Thursday shows that he is line for a significant role in the team's offensive plans this season. Jordan Howard is expected to start the season as the starter, and the Eagles typically run a committee at the running back position, but Sanders has the highest upside of any of their backs.
