With Miles Sanders on the shelf, this should be Scott's backfield on Thursday night. That didn't mean a whole lot in Week 1 when he tallied just 11 opportunities, though he did have to leave that game temporarily with an injury. He's also failed to flash the magic he showed at the end of last year in his backup role. The offensive line is certainly an issue though, as Scott has totaled just 67 scoreless yards on his 21 carries this year. The good news is that Scott can be used quite heavily in the passing game, as he's caught 31-of-36 targets for 252 yards over the last two years, and even saw six-plus targets in four straight games to end the 2019 season. This matchup might suit Scott's skillset quite well. The Giants have allowed just 3.85 yards per carry on the year along with four touchdowns on 146 carries (one every 36.5 carries), so they've done a good job limiting production there. But again, the usage in the passing game is key, as the Giants have allowed a massive 78.3 PPR points through the air to running backs alone. That amounts to 13.1 points per game through the air, and there's not a whole lot of concern on the roster to take away Scott's targets. He should receive at least 15 touches in this game, and though his production on the ground may not be massive, his production through the air should carry him into RB2 territory.

Boston Scott sees four touches in Week 6 loss

Eagles running back Boston Scott rushed two times for four yards and caught two of his four targets for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

The bigger story on Sunday is that Miles Sanders left the game with a knee injury and is headed for an MRI on Monday. The team is reportedly concerned about that injury, so Scott could see a significant role in the team's Week 7 matchup against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football.
