Draft note
by John Paulsen
Sanders finished as the No. 23 fantasy back last season (half-PPR), but he missed four games and had the No. 18 per game average. That’s about where he would be ranked this season if not for the Eagles’ decision to draft Kenneth Gainwell, a receiving specialist who caught 51 passes at Memphis last year. Sanders is the lead back but he’s unlikely to get significantly more than the 16.0 touches per game that he saw last season.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. San Francisco
Miles Sanders was very much involved with the Eagles offense in Week 1 with 19 touches that produced 113 total yards. He did not score a touchdown which was the downside of his performance. However, it is a good sign how the new regime will use him moving forward this season.

The Eagles will have a much tougher matchup against the 49ers albeit at home. San Francisco has a top 10 defense and is especially strong against the run. Sanders will have a much tougher time duplicating his numbers from last Sunday.

Sanders should still get touches which means he has fantasy relevance again. He is ranked a low-end RB2 for Week 2. Start him in all leagues and formats. He will continue to have more value in PPR leagues because of his use in the passing game.
