PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Dallas
Miles Sanders had 18 touches for the second straight week although his total numbers weren't as good. What we are seeing is his role in the offense has returned to what it was earlier in the season. He still had 90 total yards which will work every week if he can add some scores as he did two weeks ago when he scored two touchdowns.

It's a great matchup this week against Dallas who is 25th in aFPA to running backs. He did not play in the first meeting with the Cowboys earlier this season, but did have 156 total yards and a touchdown in a late meeting in 2019.

Start Sanders as solid RB1 for Week 16 in all leagues and formats. We expect him to have a big game with a minimum of 18 touches again and against the Dallas defense which has plenty of holes.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Arizona
Miles Sanders rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns last week against a very good Saints defense. He ended up with a total of 18 touches on the day and was one of the best fantasy backs for Week 14. His workload will continue with Jalen Hurts at quarterback.

Sanders faces the Cardinals who are ranked 14th in aFPA to running backs. As long as he stays on the field, his fantasy numbers will be there.

Start Sanders as a low-end RB1 for Week 15 in all leagues and formats. The change at quarterback raised his stock because of the ability to run more RPOs with Hurts.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. New Orleans
The fact that Miles Sanders only had 10 touches last week shows how dysfunctional the Eagles offense has become. With Carson Wentz now on the bench and Jalen Hurts the starter, for now, the Eagles should be able to stabilize a gameplan that will include regular usage of Sanders. He is their best overall offensive weapon.

Sanders faces the Saints who are ranked first in aFPA to running backs. So, not exactly the best matchup to get Sanders going, but Philly still needs to get him touches even if it is tough sledding.

Sanders ranks as a high-end RB3 or flex for Week 14. The Eagles offense will struggle which pushes Sanders down the rankings, but if he is back to 15-18 touches, he should at least contribute something to your fantasy team.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Green Bay
You really have to scratch your head why Miles Sanders only had eight touches on Monday against Seattle. The total yardage was 22 after Sanders has averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season. The answer may be his health. He only played 60% of the offensive snaps so maybe the Eagles were taking it easy on him.

Sanders will face Packers who are 31st in aFPA to running backs in 2020. This is where the Eagles will have a huge advantage so let's see if Sanders gets back to his 18-20 touches.

Start him in all leagues and formats for Week 13 as an RB2. We expect the Eagles to take advantage of their best skill player and the advantage they have over the Packers.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Seattle
Since returning from injury, Miles Sanders has averaged 18 touches per game. The second-year back continues to be the most reliable fantasy option on the Eagles. He has averaged 88 yards from scrimmage over those two games with the only blotch being a fumble last Sunday.

Sanders faces the Seahawks who are 17th in aFPA to running backs. We expect a high-scoring game at the Linc and that means Sanders should be deeply involved in the offensive game plan.

Start Sanders as a low-end RB1 for Week 12 in both standard and PPR formats. Sanders is the third most targetted Eagle and that's with missing several games. Expect around 18-20 touches against Seattle and positive fantasy numbers.

PHI RB Miles Sanders - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Cleveland

Miles Sanders returned to the lineup with a solid fantasy outing which produced 17 touches for 95 yards. No doubt the Eagles missed Sanders and he had his third-highest rush total of the season so he wasn't held back. Fantasy owners will be happy because Sanders still has good numbers even with the Eagles offense struggling overall.

Sanders will face the Browns who are 10th in aFPA to running backs. Cleveland has a decent run defense that doesn't get tested as much because their pass defense has struggled. However, Sanders is involved in both the running and passing games so he should flourish against the Browns.

Start Sanders as a low-end RB1 for Week 11 in both standard and PPR leagues. We expect him to have a big game with a lot of success on the touches he receives.
