2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Injuries limited Sanders to just 12 somewhat underwhelming games in 2020, with the former Penn State Star failing to be the breakout candidate many hoped for in his sophomore season.

Although Sanders technically improved on his per-game scoring, he delivered just two games of over 100 rushing yards and did not top 36 receiving yards in any game. Despite being a talented receiving back, he struggled mightily in that department in 2020, and the Eagles responded by drafting an excellent receiving back in Kenneth Gainwell and signed free agent Kerryon Johnson. If you thought Sanders would grow into an elite workhorse back, the chances are that dream will not come to fruition.

On a positive note, Sanders' best game of the season came against New Orleans in Week 14, with Hurts under center running the read-option. It was a small sample size of just four games, but Sanders did score three of his six rushing touchdowns in the final three games of the year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Miles Sanders to have MRI on hand
Broken bone in hand
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 27, 8:00 am

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles RB Miles Sanders broke a bone in his hand yesterday, sources say, and he’ll have an MRI and additional tests today to determine if there is other damage and whether or not he can play through it. Sanders left the stadium in a soft cast. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is something Sanders may be able to play through but we should know more later today. Jordan Howard suffered a stinger in Week 16 which allowed Boston Scott to see significant work (12-41-1) against the Giants. The volume of rush attempts the Eagles are posting make this situation one to target in Week 17 against Washington.


Jalen Hurts gametime decision, Boston Scott expected to play
Gardner Minshew would start if Hurts sits
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 5, 7:05 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts very well may be out Sunday due to his sprained ankle, as @RealDGunn reported. But the Eagles want to see how Hurts is feeling on gameday before making any final decisions about the QB’s status. Eagles’ running back Boston Scott, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an illness, is expected to play vs. the Jets, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Other reports paint a more pessimistic outcome for Scott. We shall see in a couple hours after inactives come out. Gardner Minshew would get the start if Hurts sits and Miles Sanders would be inline for RB1 value given the matchup against the Jets if Scott doesn't play.


Injury Jalen Hurts, Boston Scott listed as Questionable
Hurts, Minshew split reps in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 3, 12:26 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
#Eagles QB Nick Sirianni: Jalen Hurts will be questionable for Sunday. “It’s an unknown right now.” Sirianni said he was confident in both Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew based on their work this week. Split reps around 50-50. #Eagles (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Beat reporters are leaning towards Hurts being able to play but we may not get a clear indication until late Saturday night, early Sunday morning. An ankle injury is obviously concerning for Hurts given the majority of his fantasy upside comes from his legs. Miles Sanders would be a more comfortable RB2 play if Boston Scott is ruled out.


Injury Miles Sanders lands on Injured Reserve
Will miss at least three games
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 29, 11:11 am

Philadelphia Eagles
The #Eagles are placing RB Miles Sanders (ankle) on Injured Reserve, source said. Out 3 games, but should be back soon upon eligibility. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sanders injured his ankle in Week 7 and will now hand over running back duties to Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell. We could see Jordan Howard called up from the practice squad. Given how lightly the Eagles are using their running backs it's hard to get excited about Scott as a fantasy play. Gainwell is viable in PPR leagues.
