  • Miles Sanders Viewed As Three-Down Back In Carolina

    The Carolina Panthers and head coach Frank Reich view running back Miles Sanders as a three-down back who can do it all. It's why the Panthers let D'Onta Foreman walk in free agency before signing Sanders to a four-year, $25.4 million deal last week. Carolina still has Chuba Hubbard in their backfield, but as of right now, it looks as though they plan to give Sanders as much work as he can handle. The 25-year-old was a disaster for fantasy managers in 2021, but he bounced back with his first 1,000-yard rushing season and 11 touchdowns on a career-high 259 carries in 17 regular season games (15 starts) for the Eagles last year, adding 20 receptions for 78 yards. Sanders' ultimate fantasy upside could hinge on how well Carolina's rookie quarterback fares, but it's a good sign that he'll be heavily involved on all three downs in his new home.

  • Panthers Rookie QB To See Plenty Of Reps

    Carolina Panthers head coach Frank Reich said that their rookie quarterback that will be drafted with the first overall pick is "going to get a lot of reps" to give him a chance to start right away in 2023. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise, as the Panthers gave away the farm to put themselves in position to take the QB they like the most in this year's draft class at No. 1 overall. Carolina also signed veteran signal-caller Andy Dalton in free agency, but they'd prefer if their rookie quarterback earned the starting gig in training camp this summer. The Panthers have also added running back Miles Sanders, receiver Adam Thielen and tight end Hayden Hurst in free agency, which should take some pressure off whichever rookie signal-caller they take in next month's draft.

  • Miles Sanders Headed To Carolina

    The Carolina Panthers have agreed on a contract with free-agent running back Miles Sanders. The 26-year-old has reportedly signed a four-year deal with the team. This is a good fit for Sanders after a breakout season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2022. In 17 games, Sanders rushed for 1,269 yards with a career-high 11 touchdowns last season. He has been a consistent runner throughout his time with the Eagles. There won't be much competition for Sanders with D'Ontae Foreman being an unrestricted free agent. Chuba Hubbard figures to be the primary backup, but Sanders should get a bulk of the work in Carolina.

  • Eagles To Re-Sign RB Boston Scott

    The Eagles have been busy today in terms of deals concerning their backfield, and one involving an incumbent has been agreed to. Philadelphia is set to re-sign running back Boston Scott, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network (Twitter link). The contract is one year in length, and has a value of roughly $2MM, Pelissero adds.

    A substantial number of Eagles starters are headed for free agency. Many of them resided on Philadelphia’s defense. The Eagles want to retain at least one of them, having traded for C.J.

  • Miles Sanders Gains Just 16 Yards During Super Bowl Loss

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders took seven carries for 16 yards during the team's 38-35 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during Super Bowl LVII. It was a terrible end to a career year for the 25-year-old, as he was given the same amount of carries as backup Kenneth Gainwell, who not only outproduced him but looked like the more explosive player over the final month of the regular season. With an extension for quarterback Jalen Hurts being the top priority for Philadelphia this offseason and Sanders set to be a free agent, it is tough to see the Penn State alum back in Eagles green next season unless he comes back on a team-friendly deal. Sanders was a solid RB2 for fantasy purposes this past season and one of the steals of the draft, but determining his true fantasy value for the 2023 regular season will have to wait until we find out where he will be playing.

  • Miles Sanders Looks To Stay Hot In Super Bowl LVII

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday. The 25-year-old found the end zone twice two weeks ago against the top-rated San Francisco defense and has tallied 28 carries through the Eagles' two playoff games this postseason. With few running backs left for fantasy managers to choose from in DFS and playoff leagues, Sanders is arguably the top option available. He is almost guaranteed double-digit touches and has top odds of finding the end zone. Fellow back Kenneth Gainwell has looked impressive during this playoff run and will see carries of his own, but Sanders has been the one to dominate touches when the games have been close and should continue to do so Sunday.

  • Miles Sanders Scores Twice During Blowout Victory

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders took 11 carries for 42 yards and two touchdowns, adding one reception for three yards, during the team's 31-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles' offense tallied just 269 yards of total offense against the No. 1 defense in the NFL, but they were able to capitalize on short field and turnovers, scoring four times in total on the ground. Sanders accounted for two of these scores and ended the night with a solid fantasy performance. Teammate Kenneth Gainwell has seen more usage in the playoffs, gained more yards, and securing more carries than Sanders against San Francisco. However, the 25-year-old Eagles starting back will have a much easier time running the ball against Kansas City in the Super Bowl than he did against San Francisco this past weekend and will be in plenty of DFS lineups in two weeks.

  • Miles Sanders Tough To Trust In Conference Championship

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Conference Championship game this Sunday. Last weekend against the New York Giants, the Eagles torched their division rival for 268 yards on the ground. The 25-year-old accounted for 90 of those yards but failed to find the end zone and was taken out once the game got out of hand. Still, Sanders was the one given the majority of carries when the game mattered, and that will likely be the case this weekend against a much stiffer 49ers defense. San Francisco held the Dallas Cowboys rushing attack to just 76 yards on 22 carries and have kept opposing running backs this past regular season. The Eagles' workhorse back will see plenty of carries Sunday, but he will have little upside for fantasy purposes against the 49ers front. Consider him a low-end starting option in DFS lineups with the likes of Joe Mixon, Christian McCaffrey, and Isiah Pacheco available.

  • Miles Sanders Rushes For 90 Yards In Blowout Victory

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders took 17 carries for 90 yards during the team's 38-7 playoff victory over the New York Giants. The 25-year-old was given plenty of carries early and often in this one but had his touchdown opportunity taken by quarterback Jalen Hurts, who rushed it in himself. Boston Scott also got his obligatory touchdown against the Giants. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott got the majority of carries in the second half, with the game pretty far out of reach, leaving Sanders with a mediocre fantasy performance. Most Eagles blowouts during the regular season followed a similar formula. The fourth-year back left fantasy managers wanting more in those games if he failed to find the end zone. Because of his guaranteed workload, Sanders will be a viable mid-tier option next week in DFS lineups no matter who he plays between Dallas and San Francisco, but know his upside is capped slightly due to Hurts' ability to find the end zone inside the 10-yard line.

  • Miles Sanders A Boom-Or-Bust RB2 In Divisional Round

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will take on the New York Giants this Saturday in the NFC Divisional round of the playoffs. The 25-year-old had a rough four-game stretch for fantasy purposes to close out the regular season. He lost work to backups Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott and did not find the end zone once during this time. However, Sanders still averaged 13.8 carries per game and gashed the Giants for 144 yards and two touchdowns back in Week 14. Quarterback Jalen Hurts is much closer to 100% now than he was back in Week 18 and while he does take away goal-line carries from Sanders, his involvement as a runner out of the backfield does wonders for the fourth-year back's yardage totals. Sanders enters the weekend as a boom-or-bust RB2 for those playing in fantasy playoff leagues and DFS tournaments this weekend.

  • Miles Sanders Shares The Workload In Regular Season Finale

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders took 11 carries for 33 yards during the team's 22-16 victory over the New York Giants. Teammates Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell combined for 14 carries in this game, allowing the 25-year-old starter to rest often before the Eagles head into the postseason. Sanders had a terrible final month of the season for fantasy purposes but shattered preseason expectations for the 2022 season. He will end the year as a solid RB2 who rushed for over 1,200 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. That is pretty good for an RB that was taken as the RB34 overall on average in drafts back in late August and early September. Sanders is an impending free agent who could be looking to play elsewhere next season, leaving his fantasy outlook murky heading into the offseason. He has proven to be an explosive runner but adds little as a pass catcher, so his market will be something to keep an eye on when evaluating his fantasy value heading into the spring.

  • Miles Sanders Good To Go Against Giants

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and was removed from the final Week 18 injury report. He will suit up in Sunday's regular season finale against the New York Giants. In a game the Eagles need to win in order to secure a first-round bye in the NFC postseason as the top overall seed, Sanders and the rest of the starters will be on display and available to fantasy managers still fighting for a fantasy title this week. The 25-year-old could also be getting starting quarterback Jalen Hurts (shoulder) back from a two-game absence, which would make Philly's offense more explosive. With a lot of players being too risky to rely on in Week 18, Sanders is an exception and should see a reliable amount of touches against New York.

  • Miles Sanders Limited On Thursday

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice. He played through a knee issue last week and finished with 61 yards on 12 rushing attempts. Sanders has been limited in practice the last two days, but should be fine for the Week 18 matchup against the New York Giants. Fantasy managers should check back on Friday for another update on his status. Sanders should be considered a high-end RB2 against a Giants team that is likely to rest many of their starters.

  • Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders Limited Wednesday

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (shoulder) and running back Miles Sanders (knee) were both limited in Wednesday's walkthrough practice. After missing the last two games due to a right shoulder sprain, Hurts is trending towards returning in Week 18 against the New York Giants. The Eagles must win in order to secure the No. 1 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs. The 24-year-old has been the most valuable fantasy QB this year, but he could be rusty and/or face restrictions if he's active this weekend. Continue to keep a close eye on his practice status this week. Sanders played a season-low 40 percent of the offensive snaps last Sunday, but he should continue to serve as Philly's lead back against the Giants and will be in play as a strong RB2 choice in Week 18.

  • Miles Sanders A Boom-Or-Bust RB2 In Week 17

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 17. The 25-year-old has had a rough time the past month for fantasy purposes, finishing as an RB1 once and tallying fewer than 10 total fantasy points over the past two games. Last week against Dallas, he saw plenty of carries but did little with them and committed a crucial fumble late in the game. The volume should be there for Sanders to produce RB2 numbers this week against New Orleans, but he has become more of a boom-or-bust RB2 over the past month rather than a high-end RB2. The Saints defense allows the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position, so the matchup should not scare anyone away from starting the fourth-year back. However, unless he finds the end zone, fantasy managers will likely receive mediocre back-end RB2 production from Sanders in Week 17.

  • Miles Sanders Good To Go Against Saints

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) put in a full practice on Friday and will enter Sunday's Week 17 meeting with the New Orleans Saints without an injury designation. Sanders was rested on Wednesday and was limited in practice on Thursday. Philly will be without MVP candidate Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for a second straight game, giving Sanders more fantasy upside. Last week in the loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the 25-year-old had 21 carries for 65 yards, only the third time in 2022 that he's seen 20-plus totes. The Saints defense has been around middle of the pack in terms of average fantasy points allowed to opposing RBs, but Sanders' guaranteed volume this weekend should make him a strong RB2 play.

  • Miles Sanders Returns To Thursday's Practice

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) is back at practice on Thursday after he was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice. The Eagles were likely giving Sanders a day to rest on Wednesday. It's unclear if he was limited or full on Thursday, but the fact that he was back on the field is a good sign that he'll be fine for his normal role as Philly's backfield leader in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints. With quarterback Jalen Hurts (shoulder) sidelined, the Eagles made it a point to keep Sanders heavily involved in last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, as he had 21 carries for 65 yards on the ground. Expect more of the same this weekend if Hurts misses a second straight game. Sanders should be considered a strong RB2 choice for fantasy managers.

  • Miles Sanders Sits Out Of Wednesday's Practice

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) was a DNP at Wednesday's practice. Sanders played just over 50 percent of the team's offensive snaps in last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, carrying the ball 21 times for 65 yards while also snagging his only target for a six-yard gain through the air. It was nice to see him go over 20 carries for the first time since Week 12 after he had just 11 in Week 15. There hasn't been any indication that the 25-year-old's injury is that serious, so as long as he practices in the next couple of days, he should be able to suit up to face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Sanders has been much more productive this year than last and currently ranks as the RB11 in half-point PPR scoring.

  • Miles Sanders Records 65 Rushing Yards, Loses Crucial Fumble

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders carried the ball 21 times and gained 65 yards, adding one reception for six yards, during the team's 40-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The 25-year-old had a tough time moving the ball in this game and lost a crucial fumble late in the fourth quarter. Teammate Kenneth Gainwell worked in a lot more this week, with Philadelphia trailing more often than usual, but Sanders still ended the night with over 20 carries. It has been two straight rough fantasy performances for the fourth-year back the past two weeks, but he will still be a viable starting option next week against the New Orleans Saints if you survived this performance and were able to move on to the championship game.

  • Miles Sanders Will Look To Bounce Back In Week 16

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will go on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16. The 25-year-old recorded his lowest fantasy output of the season last week against one of the worst run defenses in the league. However, head coach Nick Sirianni admitted this week that he needs to get the ball into the young running backs hands more often, and it could lead to an increase in usage this week with starting quarterback Jalen Hurts (shoulder) out. Dallas allows the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the running back position, but Sanders had success against them the last time they played in Week 6 when he took 18 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown. With the potential for a big workload, consider the fourth-year back a high-end RB2 in Week 16.
