Eagles RB Miles Sanders expects ball to 'be spreadout a lot'

Sanders speaking on NFL Total Access believes the battle for snaps is "definitely going to be competitive. That's what I like about rooms likes this. It was like this at Penn State. It was a very talented running back room. But I'm just used to that stuff: competing and making each other better. Nobody's really going to be the star running back, I think . . . the ball's going to be spread out a lot, and that's what I kind of like, too."

His comments come after beat writer Jimmy Kempiski wrote on Monday that he expected Jordan Howard and Corey Clement to start ahead of Sanders early in the season.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Eagles running back situation, as usual, will be a pebble in the shoe of fantasy footballers. The hope for many was that Sanders would take over early and win the majority of the looks, but an offseason hamstring injury and veteran Jordan Howard to leapfrog, it doesn't look like we'll have a clear understanding of their workloads anytime soon. For now, Howard has value at his ADP, but be wary of this situation
