Week 17 vs. Washington
UPDATE: Miles Sanders has been ruled out for Week 17 for a knee injury.
Miles Sanders continues to get between 17-20 touches every game and the fantasy numbers have been good for the most part. Last Sunday, he had 84 total yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. The Eagles have a lot of confidence in Sanders as evidenced by the fact he has become the primary back. In recent years, they have used a running back-by-committee approach.
Sanders will face Washington who is ranked 9th in aFPA to running backs. With the Eagles eliminated from the postseason, Philly will still rely on their healthy skill players which includes Sanders, plus they finish the season on national TV with a chance to knock Washington out of the playoffs.
Start Sanders as a low-end RB2 for Week 17. He should still get at least 15 touches, but Washington's defense has been very good over the last month, and we expect a low-scoring game between the two teams.
