Week 2 PPR Rankings
Miles Sanders Note

Apparently, the Eagles may have been a bit too confident heading into Week 1, as Sanders was reportedly held back for precautionary reasons. He should be a go this week and may not even be on a snap count. Scott touched the ball 11 times last week while Corey Clement chipped in with eight touches, though neither did much for fantasy teams. Scott did have to leave the game for a bit with an ankle injury but ultimately returned. The Rams are a team you can run the ball against, as they allowed five 110-plus yard rushers last year, and their struggles against the run continued to Week 1 where they allowed Ezekiel Elliott 127 total yards and two touchdowns. He was the fourth running back to score multiple touchdowns against them over their last 17 games, so there's clearly a ceiling. Part of the reasons there is success against them is due to plays per game, as opponents averaged 66.0 plays per game against them last year, which led to 27.6 running back touches per game. On opportunity alone, they ranked as the 11th-toughest matchup for running backs. If Sanders is back to full health and on no snap count, he should be in lineups as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2. If Scott were forced to miss any time, Sanders would be a lock for 18-plus touches, which would obviously give him cash-game viability. The fact that the Eagles still haven't signed another running back says a lot about their confidence with Sanders.
