Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is expected to compete for an offensive role in training camp instead of just competing for a roster spot. Miles Sanders will be the team's lead back in 2020, but even if the team adds a veteran backup, Scott is expected to compete for a role in Philly. The coaching staff truly believes that Scott's production down the stretch last year when Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles were injured wasn't a fluke. The 25-year-old finished with 61 carries for 245 yards (4.0 yards per carry) and five touchdowns on the ground, adding 24 receptions for 204 yards through the air. Scott should have late-round appeal in deep PPR leagues, especially if the Eagles don't add another running back before the season.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders has his sights set on being named the MVP in 2020 while also maintaining confidence that he can serve as an effective three-down back for the team. Despite splitting time with Jordan Howard and Boston Scott last season, the sophomore back still finished with a respectable 818 yards and three rushing touchdowns off of 179 attempts. He also added 50 receptions for 509 yards and three additional trips to the end zone. With Howard no longer in the mix, the 2019 second-round pick has a chance to thrive as both a runner and a pass-catcher, making him a desirable selection in all formats, especially in PPR leagues.
The Philadelphia Eagles are interested in both running backs Devonta Freeman and LeSean McCoy, who remain free agents. The Eagles offered a contract to Carlos Hyde before he signed with the Seahawks. Freeman also received an offer, but he's also weighing another offer from the Buccaneers. Philly has yet to make an offer to McCoy. The Eagles would like a veteran presence behind Miles Sanders as he heads into his second NFL season, with Boston Scott as his current backup. Both Freeman and McCoy are past their prime, but they could be effective in spurts while spelling Sanders behind a solid offensive line. Freeman would probably have more fantasy appeal as a handcuff on early downs and in goal-line situations.
The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to add a veteran running back and Devonta Freeman, Carlos Hyde and LeSean McCoy are on their radar, according to sources. The Eagles think Miles Sanders is a Pro Bowl-caliber player and envision Boston Scott adding useful depth, but they want to add to a group that also includes Corey Clement. Philly has reached out to Freeman, and he has a fun in running backs coach Duce Staley, who has a relationship with Freeman from his days at Florida State. The 28-year-old also has suitors in the Seahawks and Jets, however. Hyde is coming off the most productive season, rushing for 1,070 yards on 245 carries (4.4 YPC) and six touchdowns with the Texans. No matter which veteran back the Eagles choose, they shouldn't get in the way too much of Sanders' claim as the team's lead back.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders said he is ready to be the main ball carrier and believes that is why the team drafted him prior to last season. In 2019 Sanders led the team in carries, but only handled 179 carries while ceding work to Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. Scott is still around, but Howard is no longer on the team so it's reasonable to believe the Eagles will lean more heavily on Sanders in his sophomore campaign. The 23-year-old running back rushed for 818 yards last season at a healthy 4.6 yards per carry while adding 50 receptions in the passing game. Sanders is a great RB1 target early in the second round of fantasy drafts.
