Summary

Miles Sanders had an impressive rookie season, and cemented his spot as Eagles unquestioned feature back in 2020. He started last year splitting time with veteran Jordan Howard, but took over the lead role at season's end. Howard is now in Miami, and the team did nothing other than re-signing backup Corey Clement in the offseason to call Sanders' snaps into question. Sanders was tentative at the point of attack in the early going, but a light-switch clicked as the season wore on. He finished with 179 carries for 818 yards (4.6 yards per rush), 50 receptions for 509 receiving yards, and 6 touchdowns; he was the 15th-ranked fantasy running back. At 5-foot-11, 215 pounds, Sanders is built for a three-down role, and his skill set lends equally to any game script. Provided the team's offensive line gels without Jason Peters and Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Sanders should be on a short list for No. 1 running backs to target in the first few rounds. (May 5)

Eagles | Miles Sanders in rarified air (Mon Jun 29, 09:10 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders recorded 25 touches in Week 15 and again in Week 16 last season, becoming the first Eagle to do so in back-to-back games since 2014 and the first Philadelphia rookie to do so since Steve Van Buren in 1944.

Our View: Sanders showed last season that he could be a feature back in the NFL. He finished 2019 as the no.16 fantasy back and should finish this season as a RB1 for Fantasy GMs. Sanders has a current ADP of RB11 (2.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
