Heading into the season, there was concern about what Sanders' involvement as a receiver would look like out of the backfield. We knew that he would be the "lead" back in this system, but without the guarantee of receiving work, his upside seemed capped. After week one, we know that he's going to be just fine and he appears to be a value based on where you drafted him. Sanders saw 19 touches in week one against the Falcons and he was highly efficient with his opportunity. This matchup against the 49ers defense will be a little bit more difficult and it's unlikely that Philadelphia will be playing with a massive lead again in the second half, but he's proven that he belongs in our starting lineups every week moving forward. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end RB2.
