RB - PHI
Week 3 Outlook
Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 18 times for 95 yards and caught four of his eight targets for 12 yards in a tie to the Bengals on Sunday.
Despite averaging 5.3 yards per carry on Sunday, the Eagles continued to throw the ball rather than hand the ball off to Sanders. The second-year running back would have also contributed more in the passing game, but Carson Wentz missed him on multiple occasions, including a wheel route up the sideline that could have gone for big yards.
Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 20 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He also lost a fumble early in the first quarter that led to a Los Angeles touchdown.

His fumble was disappointing, but he was a focal point of the Philadelphia offense in Week 2 despite the team getting blown out by the Rams. He should see 20+ touches per game going forward, making him an RB1 for fantasy owners.
