The Eagles have now "officially" signed Jordan Howard to the practice squad, so you have to expect they'll activate him for this game after Doug Pederson said they want a committee approach. It wasn't too much of a timeshare last week, as Sanders totaled 21 opportunities to just eight of them for Scott, so faith in Sanders is still alive. But again, this is your reminder that in the nine games both Howard and Sanders were active last year, Howard totaled 119 carries and 14 targets (14.8 opportunities per game) while Sanders received 76 carries and 27 targets (11.4 opportunities per game). While I don't expect that to happen again, there's a reason they signed Howard. The Seahawks have allowed a ridiculous 114.4 PPR points per game to their opponents. That's including the quarterback, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Unfortunately, running backs have accounted for only 27.6 percent of that production, but that number has been on the rise as of late. They've allowed a rushing touchdown once every 18.5 carries, which is the second-most often, behind only the Raiders. But again, touchdowns are volatile, and the 3.66 yards per carry they've allowed is one of the lowest marks in the league. It also hurts to know that teams have chosen to run the ball just 34.8 percent of the time, which is the lowest percentage in the league. Just one running back has been able to accumulate more than 65 yards on the ground against them this season. The good news for B.T. Sanders and Scott is that they're utilized in the passing game because the Seahawks have allowed 6.5 receptions and 49.6 receiving yards per game to running backs, which are both near the top of the league. Sanders should be considered a high-end RB2 if Howard is left on the practice squad due to his target share. Scott is nothing more than a lackluster RB4.He's now seen a league-high 46.9 percent of his team's red zone targets. No other player in the league has seen more than 35.4 percent. Now you know why he ranks 19th in yards (646) among wide receivers, but first in touchdowns (11). The issue is that we don't know if he'll play this week after getting mixed reports from a COVID test. It's something we will be paying attention to as the week goes on. We don't know if Donte Jackson will play this week, either, but it's something to monitor as his replacement Troy Pride has only been targeted 28 times, but when targeted, he's allowed a robust 2.37 PPR points per target, which ranks as the 12th-most among 128 cornerbacks who've played 100-plus snaps in coverage. Oddly enough, the Panthers have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, so it's not a great spot for a team that throws the ball just 27.5 times per game, but when they do throw, it often goes Thielen's way. If he's active, go ahead and play him as a high-end WR2.

The Seahawks are 23rd against fantasy running backs, Sanders should be an upside RB1 play at home this week, although a struggling offense does cap his upside.We'll see if Thielen can be cleared to play on Sunday, if he can play he is WR2 against the Panthers 9th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.

 Can we talk about that TD grab by Adam Thielen last week? Thielen was able to reel in a beautiful one-handed grab in the back of the end zone last week that is absolutely a must watch clip. Thielen was able to reel in another score last week too on his way to a dominant fantasy performance. This is a little bit tougher of a matchup on paper, but it doesn't quite matter. Continue to plug in Thielen as a mid-range WR1 with upside every single week.
