Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders was unable to get anything going in Week 12, running the ball just six times for 15 yards and adding two catches for seven more yards. Sanders had an ugly drop as well, but more concerning was the fact that he was soundly outplayed by Boston Scott (5-40 in the passing game). It was another ugly game for the Eagles offense as a whole, but Sanders had at least been able to escape with decent performances despite the ugliness around him. Not this time. He'll get the Packers Defense next week and is almost sure to improve on this performance, perhaps even in just the first quarter.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders has some nice upside in a Week 12 Monday Night Football matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks Defense has been 23rd in the league against opposing running backs, and with Sanders getting the lion's share of carries in this backfield, he's an easy RB1 choice with plenty of upside. Despite how much the Eagles have been struggling on offense, the Seattle defense hasn't been able to slow anyone down. This is unlikely to be the week that changes.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders ran the ball 16 times for 66 scoreless yards in a rainy Week 11 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He added three catches for 15 more yards through the air. Sanders started off running very well, but the Eagles kept calling passing plays despite the success on the ground. His final stat line wasn't great, but Sanders clearly looked like the best offensive player on the field in an Eagles uniform. He'll face off against the Seahawks Defense on Monday Night Football in Week 12.
The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to sign free-agent running back Jordan Howard to their practice squad after he clears the COVID-19 protocols, according to a source. Howard was cut by the Dolphins three days ago after he produced just 33 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries (1.2 yards per carry) over just five games. He'll rejoin the Eagles after spending the 2019 season with them and seeing 119 carries for 525 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games. The 26-year-old also added 10 catches for 69 yards and another score. Howard knows this offense and will provide depth behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott with Corey Clement going on the COVID-19 list on Thursday. Howard can be left on the waiver wire in 12- and 14-team leagues.
The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing in free-agent running back Jordan Howard for a visit. Howard was a free-agent bust for the Dolphins after playing in just five games for them this year. He was cut three days ago and passed through waivers unclaimed, so he's free to sign with any team at this point. Howard spent the 2019 season with the Eagles, carrying the ball 119 times for 525 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games before getting hurt late in the season. The Eagles are down to three active running backs -- Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and rookie Jason Huntley -- after Corey Clement was placed on the COVID-19 list on Thursday. A grinding short-yardage back, Howard would merely be injury insurance in Philly and wouldn't carry much fantasy appeal.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is back to RB1 status for a Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns. Sanders looked good in his return to the lineup in Week 10, totaling 95 yards on 17 touches. He had to watch two touchdowns get scored by his backups, as Boston Scott and Corey Clement each scored while Sanders did not. Still, he looked explosive and averaged over five yards per carry. Despite a tough matchup against the Cleveland run defense, Sanders should still find enough room to run and likely won't have to watch another running back find the end zone this time. He's a low-end RB1 with upside this week.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders returned from a knee injury and ran well in Week 10. He ran the ball 15 times for 85 yards, adding two catches for 10 more yards. It was a solid performance for Sanders in a game where the entire Eagles offense struggled to get much going. Sanders watched Boston Scott and Corey Clement each score rushing touchdowns that he certainly would have loved to score himself. This could have been a much bigger game for Sanders if he'd been given those two running plays. He'll be a solid RB2 option next week against the Browns.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (calf) were both taken off the Week 10 injury report and will play this Sunday against the Giants. Sanders should be pretty close to full health since he's been out since Week 6. He'll have RB1 upside, especially in PPR leagues, in his return against New York after going over 80 yards rushing in four of his five games so far in 2020. The Giants Defense has allowed the second-most receptions to running backs this year with 59. Even if Sanders is somewhat eased in, he should be considered an RB2 in his return. Jeffery is making his season debut and the 30-year-old will almost certainly be on some sort of pitch count. With the Philly offense basically as healthy as they've been all year, Jeffery may not see more than a few targets in this one. Keep him on your bench in deeper leagues until we see him produce.
The Philadelphia Eagles might be getting a solid boost on their offensive line this week. Left tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) and left guard Isaac Seumalo (knee) have logged just 25 snaps together so far this year, but both have a decent shot to play in Week 10 against the New York Giants. Johnson looks more likely than Seumalo, who could end up being a game-time decision. With Johnson and Seumalo back, all Eagles offensive players get a boost. The team should also see Alshon Jeffery (calf) make his season debut in Week 10 while running back Miles Sanders (knee) could return as well.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) has returned to full practices and looks like he'll be ready to go in Week 10 against the New York Giants. Sanders has been out since Week 6 with a knee injury but took those games off plus the bye week and seems healthy and ready to go. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on later-week practice reports just in case, but Sanders has a good matchup and will be ranked as an RB1 if he's good to go. The Giants Defense is ranked just 17th against opposing running backs, so Sanders should have no problem finding room to run. In the five games he's played, Sanders has finished as a top-13 fantasy running back three times.
Two key pieces for the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to return to practice this week. Running back Miles Sanders (knee) will return after exiting early in Week 6, while wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (calf) looks to make his season debut. Sanders should immediately go back to being a fantasy RB2 once he's on the field, but the big question is Jeffery. There was clear discontent between the player and organization at the end of 2019, and it's unclear how he'll fit into this Eagles team upon his return. Fantasy managers might need to take a "wait and see" approach to the veteran wideout.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) has been ruled out for the Sunday night game against the division-rival Cowboys in Week 8. Sanders will now miss his second straight game after going down with a knee injury in Week 6 against the Ravens. Make sure he's removed from all starting lineups this weekend. Backup Boston Scott filled in admirably in last week's win over the Giants, toting the bean 12 times for 46 yards while adding three receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown. Corey Clement was scarcely used behind him, so Scott will be the fantasy play again in Week 8 against a Cowboys Defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to running backs. Scott will have RB1 upside this Sunday night and is a fine plug-and-play option.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) is still day-to-day and has not practiced yet this week. Sanders was forced to miss Week 7 and is on the wrong side of questionable heading into Week 8. With the Eagles scheduled for a Week 9 bye, the team may decide not to push their starting running back and could hold him out until after the bye. For now, he's still listed as questionable, but fantasy managers with Sanders on their roster should already be making alternate plans.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott will lead the Eagles back field in Week 7 with Miles Sanders (knee) officially declared out. Scott had the backfield to himself in Week 1 and only received 11 touches, but he did temporarily have to leave the game due to injury. Still, he has failed to flash the way he did at the end of last season, as he's run the ball 21 times for just 67 yards and made seven catches for 48 yards. Some of that has been his fault while some has been the fault of the Eagles offense as a whole. The offensive line hasn't played well, and everyone else on offense has followed that pattern. Scott should get enough work to fall into the RB2 ranks, but he's by no means a direct replacement for Sanders' production.
The Philadelphia Eagles expect running back Miles Sanders (knee) to miss their Thursday night game this week against the Giants. The injury could also keep Sanders out the following week against the Cowboys, so you'll need to have a backup plan if you roster him. The 23-year-old left in the second half of the Week 6 loss to the Ravens and didn't return. With Sanders set to miss time, backup Boston Scott will be a popular waiver-wire addition this week and should see the majority of backfield touches against a Giants team allowing the 13th-most fantasy points to running backs this year. Corey Clement should also see an increase in snaps in Philly's banged-up offense.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders ran the ball nine times in Week 6, gaining 118 yards. He had a nice 74-yard run that ended in a fumble that was eventually recovered for an Eagles touchdown. Sanders was targeted twice in the passing game, catching one but losing six yards on the play. Much like last week, Sanders was buoyed by one huge run but was otherwise not particularly impressive. Still, it's the results that count, and his fantasy managers will be happy with the 100-yard day. The Eagles will get a short week and take on the Giants on Thursday Night Football.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) left Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens in the third quarter with a knee injury. He is currently questionable to return. Sanders suffered the injury on a 74-yard running play. He had nine rushes for 118 yards and one catch for negative six yards before the injury. While he is sidelined, Boston Scott should see the bulk of the carries.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is an OK option in fantasy lineups despite a tough Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Sanders made the box score look good last week with 11 carries for 80 yards and two touchdowns, but if not for a 74-yard touchdown run in the first half, he would have gained just six yards on 10 carries. The Eagles could fall behind early in this one so it's not a safe bet that Sanders will see any significant rushing volume. Still, he's one of the few remaining every-down backs and can be started as a solid RB2.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders made one huge play in Week 5, ending up with a solid fantasy performance. He ran the ball 11 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns, adding two catches on four targets for 19 more yards. Sanders scored on a 74-yard run in the first quarter. He ran the ball 10 other times for just six more yards total, but one of those times included a one-yard goal line plunge into the end zone. His overall efficiency outside of the one huge play, and the Eagles continued struggles in general, are a slight concern for Sanders going forward, but he should still be a strong RB2 at worst in most weeks.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders has a tough matchup in a Week 5 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sanders firstly has to deal with a struggling Eagles offense all around him, but then he's also staring at a very strong running defense going against him. Sanders is usually involved in the passing game, so even if the Eagles get behind early, Sanders should still get a decent number of touches. The Eagles offensive line will be an issue against a Steelers Defense that routinely pressures the quarterback and gets into the backfield. Sanders still has his usual solid floor, but his ceiling is limited more than usual this week. He's more of an RB2 than his usual strong RB1-self.
