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.
Eagles insider Reuben Franks talked about RB Boston Scott in his August 6 '10 Thoughts' column. "When the Eagles drafted Kenny Gainwell, claimed Kerryon Johnson and brought back Jordan Howard, a lot of people assumed that’s it for Boston Scott," wrote Frank. "But if anything, Scott might have even a bigger role this season than he’s had the last two."
"He gets a ton of reps with the first offense, Hurts loves throwing to him, the coaching staff seems to really appreciate his versatility and he’s probably the best receiver in the running backs room, something this coaching staff really values."
If you like a crowded running back room, do I have a team for you! Praise for Scott is also damning for Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell, the 2021 rookie pick of Philadelphia. If Scott does secure the passing work out of the Eagles backfield, he will be a later round PPR lock.
Sanders’ 35 snaps (56%) were his fewest in a full game this year.
The Eagles are quick to give up on the run game when falling behind, which they also tend to do just about every week. That all adds up to a down-trending fantasy value for Sanders. A potential Eagles QB change to Jalen Hurts in Week 14 could be a boost to Sanders' value, so owners should keep an eye on the Eagles QB situation this week.
