2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Miles Sanders Note

The start to Sanders' career hasnt been what we'd hoped for, delivering RB2 or better numbers in just 14-of-28 of games (50 percent). To be fair, he hasn't been used in a workhorse role, totaling more than 15 touches just 11 times over that span. Will the departure of Doug Pederson allow him to shine, or will Nick Sirianni implement a timeshare as well? The depth chart now consists of Sanders, Kerryon Johnson, and Kenneth Gainwell, so this could very well be a Colts-like backfield, which would make sense given that's where Sirianni comes from. Sanders should be treated as a timeshare RB2 who's more talented than most in that conversation.

Boston Scott Note

He went from a player who had the passing-down back role locked down at the start of the offseason, but we've watched that fade as we move throughout the offseason. The addition of Kenneth Gainwell in the draft was always going to be a problem, as Gainwell was arguably the best pass-catching back in the draft class. Not just Gainwell, though, as the team also signed Kerryon Johnson once the Lions released him. Opportunity is fading for Scott, who's nowhere near the redraft radar at this point.

Kerryon Johnson Note

It's obviously never a good thing to see a running back cut from his rookie contract, but that's what happened with Johnson and the Lions. The Eagles were quick to snag him after that, but it's another timeshare situation where he's clearly the No. 2 back behind Miles Sanders. When you add in Kenneth Gainwell as the best receiving option, it's difficult to say where Johnson fits in. He'll need an injury to be fantasy relevant.
