The tweet went on to say it should means Howard makes the team. Reports are he's dropped some pounds and has looked good in camp this summer. Howard is one of those guys who seems like he's been around forever but is still just 26-years-old. Scott and Sanders are expected to carry a lot of the load and Gainwell is a rookie. The author added Huntley is on the roster bubble.
PHI RB Boston Scott - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 vs. Dallas
With Miles Sanders out, Boston Scott stepped in and received Sanders' touches and put up a good fantasy outing last week. Scott ended up with 15 touches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Scott is definitely a capable back and until Sanders returns, his fantasy stock is high.
The Eagles face the Cowboys who are ranked 26th in aFPA to running backs. Dallas is a mess right now and the Philly offense looked good the last two weeks even with QB Carson Wentz still having turnover issues.
Start Scott as a low-end RB1 in both standard and PPR leagues. He did some damage in the passing game which isn't surprising considering the Eagles M.O. is throwing to running backs and tight ends. We expect at least the 15 touches again and even better results from Scott.
