Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Miles Sanders Note

The 24-year-old rushed 16 times for 94 yards against the Saints on Sunday as the Eagles once again rode a strong rushing attack to victory. It was a nice performance in his first game since returning from IR. Sanders was splitting carries with Jordan Howard before the latter exited the game with a knee injury. Sanders served as Philadelphia's lead runner from that point on. His workload would increase if Howard can't play in Week 12.

Boston Scott Note

Scott might've upset fantasy managers on Sunday as he was active but not playing. For context, he didn't practice all week due to a non-COVID illness and was only going to be used in an emergency situation. Well, Miles Sanders piled up 27 touches before departing with an ankle injury. As of this writing it's unclear if he'll be ready for Week 15 against Washington. If he isn't, then Scott will be worth adding. Note that the Eagles have a bye next weekend.

Kenneth Gainwell Note

Philadelphia running backs scored four touchdowns in Week 8 against Detroit, but somehow Gainwell accounted for zero of them. The rookie RB was given just one touch in the game's first three quarters. He then led the backfield with 12 touches in an uncompetitive fourth quarter. This was extremely odd, but perhaps Gainwell is just viewed as the pass catching back and this game featured zero negative game script. At the very least it's worth holding onto Gainwell for at least one more week. The Eagles are unlikely to be leading too often rest-of-season.
