The start to Sanders' career hasnt been what we'd hoped for, delivering RB2 or better numbers in just 14-of-28 of games (50 percent). To be fair, he hasn't been used in a workhorse role, totaling more than 15 touches just 11 times over that span. Will the departure of Doug Pederson allow him to shine, or will Nick Sirianni implement a timeshare as well? The depth chart now consists of Sanders, Kerryon Johnson, and Kenneth Gainwell, so this could very well be a Colts-like backfield, which would make sense given that's where Sirianni comes from. Sanders should be treated as a timeshare RB2 who's more talented than most in that conversation.

Miles Sanders report: Eagles RBs coach downplays idea of 'every-down' back

Zach Berman of The Athletic writes that Jamel Singleton, the Eagles’ new running backs coach, downplayed the idea of an "every-down" guy.

Fantasy Impact

“It all depends on your room,” Singleton said. There are very specific skill sets you need in your room. You need a first- and second-down runner with that really elite ability. You need a guy that can pass protect on third down and be short yardage. You need a back that can run routes and you can put him out in empty. It’s really a combination of that. I think the days of, ‘he’s an every-down back,’ that’s a little skewed these days because of the speed, because of the contact.” By no means is this an indication that Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott will see a lot of work, but it certainly isn't the kind of quote that Miles Sanders supporters want to hear. Philadelphia also brought in Jordan Howard and Kerryon Johnson this offseason, so maybe gamers should start reading more into what the Eagles are telling us. Sanders currently looks like a risky RB2 selection right now.
