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 - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Baltimore
The two touchdowns and 80 yards rushing made it a good day for Miles Sanders owners. However, take into consideration that 74 yards came on one run. It counts, but it also means he rushed 10 other times for six yards. The 13 touches against Pittsburgh was also a season-low. What we take from this is Sanders is capable of making big plays but it is also a red flag that Philly's offense is still not reliable.

Sanders will face the Ravens defense which is eighth in aFPA to running backs. This run defense is even better than Pittsburgh, but the Eagles will make an effort to get more touches for him and that should produce more consistent numbers.

Start Sanders as a low-end RB1 for Week 6. Despite the tough matchup, Sanders is the best offensive weapon overall for the Eagles and I am including Zach Ertz.
