Veteran running back C.J. Anderson announced his retirement from football on Friday at the age of 29. Anderson went to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015 after being an undrafted free agent. He plans to pursue a career in coaching. Anderson managed 10 total touchdowns in 2014, and he also ran for 1,007 yards and three touchdowns in 2017 in his final full season with the Broncos. He'll finish his career with 776 carries for 3,497 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground while catching 108 passes for 900 yards and five additional scores.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 2 against the Rams after sitting out the season opener. Sanders practiced in full on Thursday and should make his season debut as the team's bell-cow back this weekend. Against a Rams Defense that gave up plenty of yardage on the ground against the Cowboys in Week 1, fantasy managers should consider Sanders a strong RB2 this weekend. In other injury news, defensive end Derek Barnett (hamstring) is also expected to play after practicing in full on Thursday. Undrafted rookie Nate Herbig will start at right guard, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) practiced in full for the second straight day on Thursday, making it likely that he'll make his season debut in Week 2 against the Rams. Sanders was inactive for the season-opening upset to the Washington Football Team, with backup Boston Scott and company unable to get much going on the ground. With Alshon Jeffery still out with an injury and rookie Jalen Reagor being eased into things with his injury, Sanders should see plenty of work in his season debut, assuming he's close to full strength. Against a Rams Defense that was gashed by Ezekiel Elliott in Week 1, Sanders should be in your fantasy lineups as an RB2.
The Philadelphia Eagles Defense is a decent option in Week 2 fantasy lineups. They played well for a while in Week 1 before fading near the end of the game and letting the Washington Football Team take home a win. Still, they showed their upside and should be in a close enough game against the Los Angeles Rams to make them a top-12 option for this week.
Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott is a decent option in Week 2 fantasy lineups. The Eagles-Rams game could be a somewhat low-scoring affair, so neither kicker in the matchup makes for a top option, but Elliott is a consistent enough kicker to be worth a stream for desperate fantasy managers. He's ranked as the K14 for this week though, so there could be better options available on the wire in most leagues.
