Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Miles Sanders had a solid rookie season with the Eagles. He had 229 touches which produced 1,327 yards from scrimmage. He was top ranked rookie in yards from scrimmage and 16th overall in the NFL. It was unknown heading into 2019 what his role would be with Philly despite being a second round selection but if you drafted him in fantasy, you got a steal. The competition from last season is gone with Darren Sproles retiring and Jordan Howard moving over to Miami, The Eagles didn't bring any new backs so there won't be much compeition for touches. Sanders will probably receive more goalline touches in 2020 with the departure of Howard.

Fantasy Downside
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has preferred a running back by committee approach so that could still take touches away from Sanders. Philly's offensive line wasn't dominant in 2019, but all five starters return so the cohesiveness of the unit could make them above average in 2020 which would help the running game.

2020 Bottom Line
We expect the carries to go up as well as the rushing yardage for Sanders. And the touchdowns should rise with more red zone carries. The receptions and receiving yards will probably stay the same which means it will be essential for Sanders value to get more carries. His ADP is 19 right now so a late-second round selection is about where he should go. He ranks the No. 12 fantasy running back which places him as a borderline RB1/RB2 back. Sanders is solid pick in the second round and if he is your second running back, you will have one of the best fantasy backfields in your league.
