Draft note
by John Paulsen
Scott started to see significant run late in the season, compiling 70 touches (including 26 catches) in the last five games, including the Eagles’ lone playoff game. His numbers were boosted by the 23 touches he saw in Week 17 after Sanders left the game with an ankle injury. Ignoring that game, he still had a 9- to 16-touch role as the backup to Sanders. The Eagles have been rumored to be in the market for a veteran running back (LeSean McCoy?), so any signing could submarine Scott’s sneaky value.

PHI RB Boston Scott - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Boston Scott found himself a home in Philadelphia. The 2018 sixth-round draft pick by the Saints spent that season on the practice squad and the Eagles picked him up in December of 2018. He had 85 touches for Philly in 2019 and that number should go up as he is entrenched as Miles Sanders backup. The Eagles lost Darren Sproles (retirement) and Jordan Howard (Miami) and did not make any major acquisitions at the position which is a sign of confidence in Scott to handle the job.

Fantasy Downside
Scott's size is something he has been fighting his whole football career. However, Sproles was a similar size and type of player. There is still a chance the Eagles could bring in a veteran back to be the primary backup to Sanders and Scott would slip down to the role that Sproles brought to the table for Philadelphia.

2020 Bottom LIne
Scott is in a good position right now to be depth on your fantasy roster. He currently has an ADP of 50, but his value is higher than that, especially in a PPR league. Scott is going anywhere from the 13th to the 16th round so if you can get him in 13 or 14, he offers good value. Of course, if the Eagles pick up a veteran running back, his value will dip significantly.
