We knew that teams didn't run the ball much against the Seahawks, but six carries? He also saw just three targets while Boston Scott saw six of them. Sanders has run just four more pass routes than Scott over the last two weeks. So, if there's a negative gamescript, do we suddenly have to worry about Sanders' role? In this game against the Packers, they're nearly 10-point underdogs, which could be an issue. When Doug Pederson said he wanted this to be more of a timeshare, we figured it had to do with Jordan Howard, who is on the practice squad. Now onto the good stuff for Sanders. Of the production the Packers have allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, we've watched running backs account for a massive 41.3 percent of it, which is the highest percentage in football. The only other team that's allowed more than 37.3 percent is the Lions. It's due to success on both the ground and through the air, as they've allowed 4.65 yards per carry and 11 touchdowns there, and they're not getting better. They just allowed David Montgomery to rush for 103 yards on 11 carries, which seems impossible. He was the four running back who's topped 100 yards on the ground against them. Running backs have also been targeted 22.1 percent of the time against the Packers, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league. It's not just volume, either, as the 7.42 yards per target that running backs have averaged against them is head and shoulders above everyone else in the league (closest is 6.96 YPT). Because of that, running backs have averaged a league-leading 14.4 PPR points per game through the air alone against the Packers. Sanders should be able to run all over them, but that requires Doug Pederson to actually run the ball. Plug Sanders in as a low-end RB1 and hope for the best. The matchup really does allow for him to have a big week. As for Scott, he obviously benefits from a negative gamescript, but trusting him as anything more than an RB4 would likely be a mistake, as he's seen just 20 total opportunities over the last three weeks combined (since Sanders came back to the lineup).

Miles Sanders receives just six carries in loss to Seahawks

Eagles running back Miles Sanders rushed six times for 15 yards and caught two of his three targets for seven yards in Monday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

In what was a close game for most of the night, Sanders received his fewest touches of the season while the Eagles threw the ball 46 times. Sanders also dropped another pass and had a second drop negated by a penalty in what was a very disappointing performance. The young running back will hope to bounce back next week against the Packers and their struggling run defense.
