A Rookie Scouting Portfolio sleeper from two years ago, Scott has excellent contact balance for his size and great agility. His long-speed is below average but he has top-end burst. He thrived as a contributor last year and should earn a similar, if not expanded role because Miles Sanders must prove he can deliver in more than one type of blocking scheme. - Matt Waldman

Summary

Boston Scott appeared in eleven games last year, starting two games. It was an impressive showing for a former 6th round pick who spent multiple seasons on the Saints and Eagles practice squads. Injuries forced his promotion, but he ended up providing many of the same skills long-time Eagle Darren Sproles used to give the offense. Scott was particularly effective as a third-down receiver late in the season; he caught 23 receptions for 199 yards in the final month. Whether Scott has a regular role this year remains a question, but no one on the current roster has a more legitimate claim to the No. 2 role behind Miles Sanders. (July 14)

Eagles | Boston Scott the top backup (Tue Aug 11, 10:49 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott is 'positioned to be the No. 2 running back' in 2020, according to Zach Berman of The Athletic, and Berman said he expects Scott to have a Darren Sproles-like role in the backfield.

Our View: Scott looked good in 2019 with a larger role due to others being banged up in the backfield. Miles Sanders is the top back for the Eagles and his three-down ability make him an exciting fantasy prospect in 2020. Scott has some deep flex appeal but is mainly a high-value handcuff for Fantasy GMs this season.
