Running backs coach Duce Staley tried to break down the Eagles RB situation:
"It’s predicated on the play but also when you get that feeling,” Staley said. “So as a play-caller, Doug Peterson will get a feeling of the guy that’s doing well, and we all see it. So we may keep that guy in the game — I think you saw that vs. Green Bay. You saw Jordan Howard start to get on a roll. It’s all about the hot hand. Then there’s certain plays that we might want another guy — certain plays are tagged to certain guys."
Of course this doesn't make life easy for fantasy owners. Staley went on to say the plan changes from week-to-week. Against the Packers was the first team the Birds really featured Howard. Howard's carries have increased every week, though, while Sanders is in the 10-13 range since Week 1.
