Sanders’ involvement in the Philadelphia offense increased significantly after the team’s Week 10 bye. In his first nine games, he averaged 10.9 touches, 71 total yards, and 10.9 fantasy points per game (PPR). In his final seven games, he averaged 18.7 touches, 98 total yards, and 17.2 fantasy points per game. He saw 17 touches in Philadelphia’s playoff loss to Seattle. Thus far, the Eagles haven’t done anything in free agency or the NFL Draft to address the position, so they’re poised to move forward with Sanders in the lead role and Boston Scott serving as his primary backup. There are rumors that they want to add a veteran running back to the roster, and that might affect Sanders’ ceiling depending on who it is.
