2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Sanders' rookie season started off slowly, with just over six combined fantasy points against the Redskins and Falcons as head coach Doug Pederson continued to use a bevy of running backs, including veteran Jordan Howard.

Injuries to Howard and impressive bursts of production from Sanders earned the former Penn State star more and more touches as the season progressed, including four games of at least 19 touches between Weeks 13 and 16.

Although the team continues to be rumored to add another veteran like Devonta Freeman to take over the role vacated by Howard, there is little doubt that Sanders will be the most heavily used running back in a stable that includes Boston Scott.

The question is just how many touches Pederson will give Sanders, as he is notorious for using multiple backs and going with the "hot hand." One thing that is appealing about Sanders is his usage in the passing game. As a rookie, Sanders averaged just over four receptions per game, giving him a 16-game pace of 64. His work in the passing game could overcome any lack of consistency in carries on the ground.

Owners should not expect Sanders to be a workhorse back in the same light as higher-ranked players like CMC, Ezekiel Elliott, or Saquon Barkley. But that does not mean he is not a solid RB 2 with the ability to provide RB1 numbers from time to time depending on the matchup.

Eagles looking to add veteran RB
Devonta Freeman, Carlos Hyde, LeSean McCoy in the mix

NFL
The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to add a veteran running back in the near future and have narrowed their focus to three players, according to sources: Devonta Freeman, Carlos Hyde and LeSean McCoy. The Eagles are bullish on second-year back Miles Sanders, believing he has the makings of a Pro Bowl-caliber player, and envision a role for Boston Scott that is at least similar to last season's, but want to add depth and talent. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This is going to take some shine off the Miles Sanders hype that's been percolating in FF circles this off-season. Assuming one of these veteran's signed, Sanders is looking more like a mid-range RB2 candidate than a low-end RB1. Freeman is also on the Seahawks radar with a reported one-year $4 million offer on the table.
