2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Before using an early draft pick on Penn State running back Miles Sanders, the Eagles shipped off a late-round pick to the Bears for running back Jordan Howard, a north-south tailback who did not fit the scheme run by Chicago head coach Matt Nagy.

One could argue that the move is a bit of a head-scratcher for the Eagles based on the fact that Doug Pederson also likes to have running backs that can catch. The one thing that does make sense is the Eagles did not have a bruising back on their roster for short yardage and early down work, a role that Howard will likely assume to start the season.

Howard finished the 2018 season as the No.27 ranked running back based on fantasy points per game, just .2 points per game behind his former backfield mate, Tarik Cohen. A concerning trend for Howard is the fact that he has declined in fantasy points per game and yards per attempt in each of his three seasons in the league. His 3.7 yard per carry average last year was disappointing considering the improvements to the Bears offense, and he continues to be a non-factor in the passing game.

More work in Jordan Howard's future?
RB has run well, scored four times in last two games

Philadelphia Eagles

FFToday's Take: Howard has amassed 177 total yards and four touchdowns on 31 touches over the last two games, while Miles Sanders has accumulated 126 yards and no scores on his 24 touches. In reality, this just opens a buy-low window - especially in dynasty formats - for Sanders, who has significantly more upside but has struggled to commit to hitting the hole despite flashing in a big way as a receiver. Howard has a difficult Week 6 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, making him a low-end RB2 at best in that contest.


Miles Sanders drawing comps to LeSean McCoy?
"Easily the most impressive runner on the team" early in camp
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 5, 6:45 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Excluding, maybe, Carson Wentz and DeSean Jackson, rookie running back Miles Sanders has been the talk of training camp. He hasn’t missed a beat (despite missing all of minicamp due to injury), has received many of reps with the first-team and has easily been the most impressive runner on the team through 10 training camp practices. Clearly, the Eagles saw something when they drafted him in the second round, which they haven’t done since picking LeSean McCoy that high 10 years ago. About McCoy: There’s been some who have been quick to compare Sanders to McCoy, precisely because of his ability to cut on a dime, his burst, acceleration and playmaking ability. (NJ.com - Zack Rosenblatt)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles have also been pleased with Jordan Howard's efforts as a receiver and pass protector, so owners need to pump the brakes here - as Rosenblatt suggests fans should do with the McCoy comparisons. Still, how long the Eagles will stay with a true RBBC if Sanders is running circles around Howard as a rusher and earns the trust of his coaches in the passing game? Owners may need some patience here, but Sanders should emerge as the lead back before thee end of the season.
