Buy/Sell/Hold Report #5

By Draft Sharks Staff 12:11pm EST 11/18/20


BUY Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles

It was a frustrating return for Sanders, who watched Boston Scott and Corey Clement vulture TDs last week. But you’re a smart fantasy owner. You know not to over-react to TD variance.

Sanders’ usage remained strong in Week 10. He played 72% of Philly’s offensive snaps and ran a route on 51% of QB Carson Wentz’s drop backs. Sanders handled 15 of 19 RB carries and 5 of 6 RB targets.

In 5 healthy games this season, Sanders is averaging 15.4 carries and 5.6 targets. Only 10 other RBs are averaging 20+ opportunities.

So the usage has been there for Sanders. And he’s been playing very well. He’s averaging a huge 6.0 yards per carry and ranks 7th in Pro Football Focus’ Elusive Rating among 31 RBs with 50+ carries. He ranks 11th in PFF’s rushing grades and 5th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA.

Sanders probably won’t be cheap to acquire. But we’d be aggressive in pursuing a guy who we like to produce as a top 5 fantasy RB the rest of the way.
