I’m not expecting #Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) and CB James Bradberry (concussion) to face the #Vikings. Could be the same for S Reed Blankenship (ribs). But DT Fletcher Cox (ribs) is trending toward playing.
The Eagles backfield was surprisingly controlled by Gainwell in Week 1, as he accounted for 14 rushing attempts and four targets while Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch. We have been in similar situations with Boston Scott, so please don't go add him in anything but incredibly deep leagues, but we should see Penny on the field, and Swift should get a giant bump as well.
PHI RB Boston Scott - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Washington
Boston Scott had 12 carries for 41 yards and a rushing touchdown last week. He got carries because Miles Sanders injured his hand and will be out this week as well. Scott will pick up Sanders touches and split time with Jordan Howard.
Washington has had a good run defense ranked 6th in aFPA to running backs. Scott was banged up for the first meeting with the WFT so he didn't get any touches.
Keep Scott on the bench for Week 17 as he will get carries and some pass targets but not enough to help your team this week as he splits time with Howard.
