Miles Sanders Week 3 Outlook - Panthers at Seahawks

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Sanders is the Panthers' clear lead back. He's played 57-62% of the snaps, averaging 19.5 touches and 72.5 total yards. Sanders has not been efficient with his touches, though. Among 48 qualified running backs, he ranks 45th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 42nd in yards after contact per attempt. These numbers are WOOF-worthy. Sanders is headed for a week of uphill sledding against Seattle. The Seahawks have the sixth-best stuff rate while also holding rushers to the 12th-lowest yards after contact per attempt. They have also stifled zone runs, yielding the second-lowest yards per carry (1.45). Sanders has seen 62.5% of his runs on zone plays. Week 3 Positional Value: volume-based RB2/3
