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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jordan Howard ruled out
All systems go for Miles Sanders
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 30, 12:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles injury update: RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) have been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Eagles promoted TE Josh Perkins from the practice squad, activated CB Cre'von LeBlanc from Reserve/Injured and waived DT Albert Huggins. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Howard was limited in practice this week but still needs to get cleared for contact before he can play. The Eagles will roll with Miles Sanders, Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott at running back against the Dolphins. The call-up of Perkins is concerning for the status of Zach Ertz (hamstring). Ertz owner should pay close attention to early morning reports tomorrow.

Injury Ertz, Howard listed as questionable
Hamstring injury for Ertz
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 3:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Zach Ertz hasn’t practiced much all this week because a hamstring injury he first suffered last week. He declined to speak today, but said, “See ya Sunday.” Would imagine he’ll soldier through as he did vs. the Seahawks. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ertz reportedly played through his hamstring injury last week so it's safe to assume he'll suit up in Week 13. Jordan Howard hasn't been cleared for contact so it's unlikely he plays, leaving Miles Sanders in another good spot against the Dolphins this week. Sanders has yet to capitalize on his opportunity while Howard's been out, but it doesn't get much better than a meeting with the lowly Dolphins.

Injury Jordan Howard, Agholor unlikely to play
Alshon Jeffery expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 24, 7:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles RB Jordan Howard, listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, and WR Nelson Agholor, questionable with a knee injury, are both unlikely to play against the Seahawks, per source. WR Alshon Jeffery, listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is expected to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jeffery's return will be welcome news to Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense. Expect Jeffery and the two tight ends (Zach Ertz) to be the focal point of the passing offense. Miles Sanders should see the majority of touches out of the backfield with Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott sprinkling in.

Injury Jordan Howard not expected to play
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 17, 7:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles’ RB Jordan Howard, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Patriots with a shoulder injury, is not expected to play, per source. New Eagles’ RB Jay Ajayi, signed only Friday, is expected to make his 2019 debut Sunday vs. Patriots, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Eagles will be rolling with Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and newly signed Ajayi at running back. Sanders and Scott should see the bulk of work with Ajayi sprinkled in for a few carries. It's difficult to project Sanders as anything more than a RB2 given his unclear workload and a somewhat difficult matchup against the Patriots.

Injury Jordan Howard listed as questionable
Howard limited in practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 15, 1:52 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Jordan Howard will be listed as questionable for Sunday. He declined to talk after practice. Jay Ajayi, meanwhile, worked out for the #Eagles, and per @RapSheet, is likely to sign with the team. And this all after Darren Sproles was placed on IR. Lots of movement at RB. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Howard suffered a shoulder stinger late in last week's game and reportedly hasn't been cleared for contact. It sounds like he's on the wrong side of questionable. If he sits, we could see a lot of Miles Sanders this week against the Patriots with Ajayi being sprinkled in on short notice.

Injury DeSean Jackson to have surgery
Repair core muscle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 4, 3:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is having surgery to repair a core muscle injury tomorrow, sources say. Based on the timing, it appears unlikely he’ll play again this season. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's going to be a lost season for D-Jax who originally suffered his core injury in Week 2 after posting 8-154-2 in Week 1. The other Eagles receivers haven't really stepped up in Jackson's absence leaving the bulk of receiving work to tight ends Zack Ertz, Dallas Goedert and running back Miles Sanders. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins fill out the top three wideouts.

Injury D-Jax back at practice, Miles Sanders misses
Jackson hasn't played since Week 2
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 30, 1:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles who have been injured suited up for practice: DeSean Jackson (groin), Darren Sproles (quad), Avonte Maddox (neck). Injured Eagles not out here: Miles Sanders (shoulder), Jason Peters (knee), Nigel Bradham (ankle), Tim Jernigan (foot). (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jackson hasn't played since Week 2 due to a groin injury while Miles Sanders injured his shoulder last week. It remains to be seen if both will play this week but Sanders' shoulder injury isn't considered major. The Eagles have a bye in Week 10.

More work in Jordan Howard's future?
RB has run well, scored four times in last two games
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 7, 5:35 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Doug Pederson said Jordan Howard will get a higher percentage of the carries moving forward. (NBC Sports Philadelphia)

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.
