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.
Frank is one of the better beat writers on the job. He said he likes the way Sanders and Scott compliment one another and he's seen enough the last few games to feel good about that going forward. Howard has missed the last several games with a stinger injury, which won't help his cause. The Eagles will likely bring in another back heading into 2020, but with all their other needs it's hard to imagine it's a big name at a big price, meaning Sanders could get a boost in fantasy value for 2020.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. Howard is expected to miss another game. Boston Scott should continue to play second-fiddle to Miles Sanders.
