Week 12 Half PPR Rankings

Miles Sanders Note

As noted in the Jalen Hurts report above, Eagles running backs have averaged 30.8 carries a game since Week 8. When that run-heavy stretch began, Sanders was out with an ankle injury, and it was Scott and Jordan Howard shouldering the rushing load, with a minor assist from rookie Kenneth Gainwell. Now, Sanders is back in a starting role, and Howard is going to miss Philly's Week 12 game against the Giants with a knee injury. Last week, in his first game since Week 7, Sanders had 16-94-0 rushing but wasn't targeted in the passing game. Scott has had 46-221-3 rushing and 5-31-0 receiving since becoming a regular in the Eagles' RB rotation in Week 7. The Giants are a favorable matchup for the run-happy Eagles, giving up 21.7 fantasy points per game to running backs. Sanders is a midrange RB2 this week with some DraftKings appeal at a cost-efficient $5,100. Scott is a midrange RB3.

DeVonta Smith Note

Over their last four games, the Eagles have run the ball on 67% of their offensive plays. Smith has seen just 21 targets over that span, though he's made the most of them, with 14-258-3 receiving. He's been the WR16 over that stretch thanks to hyper-efficiency: Smith has averaged 12.3 yards per target over those four games, and 21.4% of his catches have gone for touchdowns. It will be difficult if not impossible for Smith to maintain that sort of efficiency, but it also seems unlikely that the Eagles will continue to run the ball like a team that plays in the Big Ten rather than the NFC East. Smith is a low-end WR2 this week against the Giants. Fade him in DraftKings at $6,400.

Dallas Goedert Note

Since Zach Ertz was traded from the Eagles to the Cardinals in late October, he's averaged 11.3 fantasy points per game (0.5 PPR), while Goedert has averaged 7.8. In fairness to Goedert, the Eagles have only attempted passes on 33% of their offensive snaps over the last four weeks, and such minimal pass volume limits scoring opportunities. Goedert has actually enjoyed a massive 29.5% target share over Philly's last four games, resulting in 16-205-0 on 23 targets. As Andrew Erickson notes, Goedert's 31% target rate per route run leads all receivers and tight ends over the last four weeks. Unfortunately, Goedert hasn't scored a touchdown since Oct. 3. He's the TE8 this week.
