  • Boston Scott Activated From COVID-19 List

    The Philadelphia Eagles activated running back Boston Scott from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, so he will be available for the wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. Scott and Jordan Howard both missed the Week 18 regular season finale after testing positive for COVID. Scott played well in the previous two games, combining for 26 carries for 88 yards and three touchdowns while adding four receptions for 39 yards in Weeks 16 and 17. However, Miles Sanders (hand) is expected to return for the first round of the playoffs, and as long as he's fully healthy, it'll be hard to get behind Scott as a legitimate DFS play. Howard will also be in the mix, and the Bucs have been a bad matchup for RBs all year.

  • Boston Scott, Jordan Howard Out For Week 18

    Philadelphia Eagles running backs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott remain on the COVID-19 list and will not play in Saturday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. With Miles Sanders (hand) already ruled out, Kenneth Gainwell will lead Philadelphia's backfield while Jason Huntley will provide a change of pace against Dallas. Gainwell should see the bulk of the carries and is a value play for Saturday's showdown slate. Howard and Scott will have to clear protocols to be available for the Eagles postseason opener next week.

  • Boston Scott, Jordan Howard Land On COVID-19 List

    Philadelphia Eagles running backs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard, linebacker Genard Avery, safety Marcus Epps, guard Nate Herbig, cornerback Avonte Maddox, safety Rodney McLeod, linebacker Alex Singleton and tight end Jack Stoll were all placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. Philly's backfield depth could be tested in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday. Miles Sanders isn't expected to return until the playoffs, and rookie Kenneth Gainwell is the only other RB on the current active roster. For those still playing for something in fantasy in Week 18, Gainwell will be a popular waiver-wire pickup this week and would see a starter's workload against Dallas if neither of Scott and Howard can clear the COVID protocols in time for this weekend.

  • Boston Scott - Week 17 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could have a huge RB1-type role in a Week 17 matchup against the Washington Football Team. Scott has played well when given the chance this season, and with Miles Sanders (hand) out and Jordan Howard (neck) looking like a game time decision, Scott could easily lead the backfield for a team that loves to run the ball. If Howard doesn't play, Scott has easy RB1 upside in this matchup, and even if Howard is able to go, Scott could still end up leading the backfield in carries and catches. He's worth starting in most formats as an RB2 with upside.

  • Boston Scott Scores A Touchdown In A Week 16 Win

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott scored a touchdown in a Week 16 blowout win over the New York Giants. Scott ended up playing more than expected after Miles Sanders (hand) and Jordan Howard (stinger) were both forced to leave the game. Scott ran the ball 12 times, gaining 41 yards and scoring on a three-yard run in the third quarter. He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Scott has shown that he is more than able to be an effective NFL running back when given the chance, but he'll only have fantasy value if Sanders and Howard are forced to miss time.

  • Boston Scott - Week 16 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is likely to start Week 16 in a backup and special teams role against the New York Giants. With Miles Sanders (quad) and Jordan Howard (knee) both expected to play, Scott will likely have a bit role at most on offense while returning to his customary special teams role. There is a chance that Sanders could be limited as he didn't practice all week, in which case Scott could end up with more of a passing game role, sharing the backfield with Howard, but there's a certain zero-floor risk with Scott that makes him difficult to start in the second round of the fantasy playoffs.

  • Boston Scott Not In The Week 15 Box Score

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott did not appear in the Week 15 box score in a win over the Washington Football Team. With Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard, Kenneth Gainwell, and Scott all active for the game, it was Sanders (20) and Howard (15) that recorded all of the running back touches. Gainwell returned kickoffs, and Scott was used exclusively as a gunner on special teams. As long as the other running backs remain healthy, Scott won't be a fantasy option in any format.

  • Boston Scott - Week 15 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott will likely return to a supporting role on offense in a Week 15 matchup (on Tuesday night!) against the Washington Football Team. Scott played well when given the chance over the past few weeks, but with the Eagles backfield getting healthy, Miles Sanders (ankle) and Jordan Howard (knee) will likely run ahead of Scott. Scott's usefulness on special teams makes him an almost certain active, and he could end up getting some run on offense if either of the earlier mentioned backs aggravate their injuries. But for the most part, Scott's fantasy relevance is hanging on a string heading into Week 15.

  • Boston Scott Officially Active Against Jets

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) is officially active on Sunday against the New York Jets after coming into the game questionable with a non-COVID-19-related illness. It's unclear if Scott will be limited at all due to his illness in Week 13, and he'll also be sharing backfield work with Miles Sanders. Jordan Howard (knee) will be missing his second straight game. The Jets defense allows the most fantasy points per game to the RB position this year, so even while he'll be sharing reps with Sanders in Philly's backfield, Scott will have RB3/flex appeal this weekend. New York is also surrendering the sixth-most rushing yards per game (128.7). With backup quarterback Gardner Minshew taking over for Jalen Hurts (ankle), the Eagles could even rely more on the ground attack in this one.

  • Boston Scott Expected To Play Sunday Against The Jets

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets. The 26-year-old dealt with an illness and missed practice all week. He could have an expanded role as starting QB Jalen Hurt (ankle) was ruled out; the Eagles could lean on the ground game more for Sunday's game. Scott is used in passing down situations and will see more early-down work with Jordan Howard (knee) sidelined. He has rushed for 285 yards on 61 rushing attempts and four touchdowns over 12 games in 2021. Scott is on the flex radar in deep-league formats for Week 13.

  • Boston Scott - Week 13 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Scott was unable to practice all week due to a non-COVID related illness, but the questionable tag means he at least has a chance to suit up for an excellent matchup on Sunday. With Jordan Howard (knee) out, Miles Sanders figures to get the lion's share of carries, but Scott could mix in for third downs if he's healthy enough to play. Otherwise, rookie Kenneth Gainwell may operate in Scott's role. Fantasy managers planning on using Scott in a starting role should have another option available just in case he is declared out on Sunday morning.

  • No Boston Scott At Practice Thursday

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) missed his second straight practice of the week on Thursday with a non-COVID-19-related illness. A second straight practice has put Scott's status up in the air for the Week 13 game against the New York Jets. And with Jordan Howard (knee) unlikely to return this Sunday, Miles Sanders could have a stranglehold on backfield touches in an excellent matchup if Scott cannot play this weekend. But the 26-year-old still has a chance to get back on the field for practice on Friday, which would put him on track to play. Rookie Kenneth Gainwell would have a much bigger pass-catching role and could be worth a flex play in deeper PPR leagues if Scott and Howard are both inactive.

  • Boston Scott Out With Illness

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott (illness) missed practice on Wednesday with a non-COVID-19-related illness. Scott saw a lot of touches in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 loss to the New York Giants after Miles Sanders left with an ankle injury. Jordan Howard (knee) was out and is unlikely to return in Week 13 to face the New York Jets. Both Sanders and Scott should have a good chance to play in a juicy matchup this weekend, and they'll both have RB2 upside if Philly is able to maintain a lead and lean on their ground attack. The 26-year-old would pretty much be a must-start if both Howard and Sanders are inactive. The Jets defense is allowing the sixth-most rushing yards per game (128.7) in 2021.

  • Boston Scott Leads The Eagles Backfield In Week 12

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott led the Eagles backfield in carries in a Week 12 loss to the New York Giants. He also scored the only touchdown of the day for Philly. Scott ran the ball 15 times, gaining 64 yards and scoring on a one-yard plunge at the goal line. Miles Sanders (ankle) was forced to miss some time in the second half, but even before he got hurt, Sanders and Scott were splitting time in the backfield with Scott getting the goal line work. Sanders was the more explosive runner, managing 7.1 yards per carry on his nine rushes, but Scott seems to have the coaching staff's trust. This is a messy backfield that could get Jordan Howard (knee) back before long, making things even messier.

  • Boston Scott - Week 12 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could find his way into some fantasy value in a Week 12 matchup against the New York Giants. With Jordan Howard (knee) not expected to play, the Eagles backfield will be made up of Miles Sanders and Scott. Sanders will be the starter, and quarterback Jalen Hurts could end up with more rushing attempts than either running back, but with Eagles running backs averaging almost 31 carries per game since Week 8, there should be some touches for Scott against a Giants defense that hasn't been great against running backs. Scott is looking like a decent floor RB3/FLEX play, with some possible upside.

  • Boston Scott - Week 11 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could see his recent role evaporate if Miles Sanders (ankle) is able to return from injured reserve ahead of a Week 11 matchup with the New Orleans Saints. While Jordan Howard will likely maintain a role at least as a goal line and short yardage back, Scott seems destined to return to his special teams role upon the return of Sanders. It is unclear whether that return will happen for Week 11 however. The Eagles have made it abundantly clear that Sanders will be the starter once he is healthy however. Scott's days of fantasy relevance will only last as long as Sanders is out.

  • Boston Scott Gains 81 Yards On The Ground In Week 10

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott had a strong performance in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. He ran the ball 11 times for 81 yards, adding two catches for another 24 yards on his two targets. Scott and Jordan Howard essentially split backfield duties, with both averaging about seven yards per carry. It was an impressive performance for the Eagles running game against a solid Broncos defense, but with Miles Sanders (ankle) due back soon, things could get even messier in the Eagles running game.

  • Boston Scott - Week 10 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is not a great fantasy option in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos. Scott has taken a backseat to Jordan Howard since Miles Sanders (ankle) went on injured reserve. It's been Howard that has become a critical part of the Eagles offense and a legitimate fantasy option, while Scott works as his backup and a change-of-pace option. In Week 9, Scott ran 10 times for 40 scoreless yards without drawing a target in the passing game. A tough matchup against the Broncos defense limits the little upside Scott has, making him a player better left on the bench or even the waiver wire in most formats.

  • Boston Scott - Week 9 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott was great in Week 8, scoring two touchdowns in a rout over the Detroit Lions. Week 9 shapes up differently, with the playoff-hopeful Los Angeles Chargers as the opponent. Still, the Chargers defense has been awful against the run but strong against the pass. There could be plenty of rushing opportunities in this game as long as the Eagles defense can keep the game somewhat close. Scott may not score two touchdowns again and will split carries with Jordan Howard and Kenneth Gainwell, but he's a decent bye-week filler as long as Miles Sanders (ankle) remains out.

  • Boston Scott Scores Twice In Week 8

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott, who had been playing exclusively on special teams up until Week 7, scored two touchdowns in a Week 8 blowout win over the Detroit Lions. Scott ran the ball 12 times for 60 yards, scoring from one yard and three yards out. The Eagles relied on the running game almost exclusively in this game, with quarterback Jalen Hurts completing only nine passes total. Scott was targeted once, but was unable to come up with the catch. Jordan Howard and Kenneth Gainwell were both also involved, but Scott looks likely to keep the lead role until Miles Sanders (ankle) returns from IR.

  • Boston Scott - Week 8 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could have a role on offense in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. With Miles Sanders (ankle) not expected to play, Scott could see some run on offense despite spending most of this season exclusively on special teams. In Week 7, after Sanders was forced to leave, Scott saw eight touches and scored a touchdown. Early-down plodder Jordan Howard has been elevated from the practice squad which could cut into any opportunities Scott may have had though, making him a very risky play without a ton of upside in this one.

  • Boston Scott Shows Up With A Week 7 Touchdown

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott showed up on offense in Week 7 and scored a touchdown, his first of the season. Starting running back Miles Sanders (ankle) was forced to leave with an injury, leaving backfield duties to rookie Kenneth Gainwell and Scott. Scott had been playing exclusively on special teams this season, but he ran the ball seven times in this game, gaining 24 yards and scoring a touchdown. His score came on a one-yard plunge at the end of the third quarter. If Sanders is forced to miss time, Scott will likely find his way into a role on offense and could see the majority of carries in the backfield, if the rest of Sunday's game was any indication.
