2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Miles Sanders followed his former backfield mate at Penn State, joining an NFC East team in the NFL Draft. Although not as highly touted as Saquon Barkley, Sanders is a well-rounded player who could end up being the three-down back that the Eagles have struggled to find over the last few seasons.

Unfortunately for Sanders, the backfield of the Eagles is deep, and head coach Doug Pederson loves to use different backs in different formations. The team traded for veteran back Jordan Howard this offseason, and Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams are still on the roster.

It may take Sanders time to earn more carries, but there is no question that the Eagles offense is potent and there is a ton of fantasy value to be had there. The one area in which Sanders shines over his competitors, notably Howard, is in the passing game.

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. ( - 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.

Eagles bring back Darren Sproles
One-year deal

FFToday's Take: As usual the Eagles have a plethora of running backs on their depth chart to make fantasy owners angry and now they've added one more. At 36 years old, it's hard to imagine Sproles having a big role in the offense but the Eagles do have room for him as a kick returner. Miles Sanders has the talent and upside fantasy owners will want to target in the middle rounds.
