The shenanigans in the Eagles backfield is nothing new. Ever since Doug Pederson arrived, they've been a team that's somewhat unpredictable at the running back position. The latest Boston Scott performance shouldn't be surprising to anyone. Sanders has still played at least 50 snaps in each of the last four games, so we should expect him to retain value despite Scott's impact. The Redskins have been a bit hit-or-miss with fantasy running backs, as they've allowed eight of them to finish with 17.2-plus PPR points (RB15 or better), but the rest of them have finished with 13 points or less with a bunch of middling RB3-type games. The important stat here is that each of the eight running backs who did finish top-20 against them all totaled at least 19 touches, a mark that it's only been hit four times this year by an Eagles running back. Oddly enough, it's Sanders who has hit it each of the last two weeks. Can it happen against the Redskins with Scott's emergence? Yes. They've allowed their opponents 66.5 plays per game, which is the fourth-most in the league. The lack of competence from their offense has allowed opponents to give their running backs a ridiculous 31.8 touches per game. The Redskins defense actually ranks as the 12th-best in terms of fantasy points per opportunity, but when you're facing that much volume, it's hard to limit production. Scott is a thorn in his side, but Sanders should still be able to deliver low-end RB2 numbers here.

Miles Sanders produces 69 total yards, leaves briefly due to cramps Monday

Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed 15 times for 45 yards and caught four of his five targets for 24 yards in Monday night's win over the New York Giants. He left the game late due to leg cramps but was able to return.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders was handling the bulk of the work with Jordan Howard out again on Monday, but Boston Scott was more productive once Sanders had to miss some time. He is expected to be fine for next week's matchup against Washington.
