Boston Scott Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Eagles released RB Jordan Howard. The 26-year-old has been a major disappointment since running for over 1,100 yards in each of his first 2 NFL seasons. Still, the move is a bit surprising since Philadelphia already cut ties with RB Kerryon Johnson. This leaves Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell as the only RBs on the roster. Sanders should dominate carries in this backfield, with Scott and Gainwell likely stealing passing-down work.

Eagles insider Rueben Frank expects RB Kenneth Gainwell to play "a lot" this year. He got off to a slow start in camp but has seemingly gotten rolling lately. He had a nice preseason, capped by a 5-32-1 rushing line and 4-27 receiving line in Friday night's finale. We'll see exactly how Gainwell fits in a backfield that also includes Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. The rookie is just a late-round flier in drafts but could be a drain on Sanders' fantasy production.

The Eagles waived RB Kerryon Johnson. The former Lion recently suffered a knee injury that's believed to be a sprain. For now, Philly will move forward with Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and Jordan Howard behind Miles Sanders.

Multiple reports from the Eagles beat have had RB Boston Scott catching the ball well -- specifically in reps with QB Jalen Hurts. Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia writes that Scott has "looked very smooth as a receiver out of the backfield" and that he has been getting more 1st-team reps than any other Eagles RB besides Miles Sanders. The pass-catching talk is particularly noteworthy because it has accompanied multiple reports of Sanders continuing to drop passes. And rookie Kenneth Gainwell arrives with receiving ability as 1 of his strengths. For now, though, it sounds like Scott is on a path to be Philly's #2 RB. We wouldn't invest too heavily in any Eagles RB right now and aren't ready to plant a flag with Scott over Gainwell. But it'll be a situation to monitor as we see usage in the preseason games.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero calls Eagles RB Miles Sanders' (ankle) status "TBD" for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. The rookie is scheduled for an MRI on his sprained ankle, so we should have a better idea of his status within the next 24 hours. If Sanders can't play vs. Seattle, Boston Scott would be the best bet for touches in Philadelphia's backfield, ahead of Jordan Howard.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a left ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Giants and is officially questionable to return. The rookie's absence leaves Philly with RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard, who just returned from his shoulder injury.

Update: Sanders has been ruled out.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. Miles Sanders will continue to operate as the lead back, with Boston Scott in a change-of-pass role.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in practice all week. He’s listed as questionable but is unlikely to play against the Cowboys on Sunday. That keeps rookie Miles Sanders locked in as the starter — and RB Boston Scott in a change-of-pass role.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He's still waiting to get cleared for contact. Miles Sanders should continue to operate as Philly's lead back tomorrow, although RB Boston Scott could see more action after an impressive showing last week.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. He still hasn’t been cleared for contact, so don’t expect him to play. That means another game as lead back for rookie Miles Sanders — although RB Boston Scott’s strong Week 14 showing adds some risk to Sanders’ fantasy outlook.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Giants after hurting his right leg. He reportedly got checked out on the sideline before heading to the locker room. We'll keep an eye on his status. RB Boston Scott took over the backfield for the team's 3rd-quarter scoring drive, including the rushing TD to close it out.

Update: Sanders returned in the 4th quarter after getting treated for cramping.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are all active. Sanders is fully expected to serve as the lead back and is a nice RB2 vs. a New England defense that’s been gashed for 5.3 yards per carry by RBs over the past 5 weeks.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) will miss today's game against the Patriots, according to multiple reports. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jay Ajayi is expected to be active and get touches, though Miles Sanders and Boston Scott "will carry the load." Sanders makes for a solid volume play in fantasy football lineups, especially in full PPR formats.

Eagles RB Corey Clement has been placed on IR with the knee sprain suffered in last week's loss to the Cowboys. Philly signed RB Boston Scott to take Clement's place on the roster, but Scott will be behind Josh Adams, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood on the depth chart.

The Saints have released RB Boston Scott. The rookie looked like the #2 RB a few days ago but was deemed expendable after New Orleans added RB Mike Gillislee. It's now just Gillislee and Alvin Kamara in the backfield for Sunday's opener against the Bucs. We're expecting a hefty workload for Kamara and a pass-heavy game plan from the Saints. Gillislee figures to mix in for a handful of carries.

The Saints have signed former Patriots RB Mike Gillislee to a 1-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gillislee steps into the spot vacated by Jonathan Williams' Saturday release and could see meaningful touches during Mark Ingram's 4-game suspension. We'll, of course, need to wait at least a week to see before trying to use Gillislee in fantasy lineups. His arrival keeps Trey Edmunds -- and perhaps Boston Scott -- buried on the depth chart for now. Alvin Kamara is the only Saints RB who should be in Week 1 fantasy football plans.

ESPN's Mike Triplett believes Saints RB Boston Scott will see playing time during RB Mark Ingram's 4-game suspension to open the season. Scott got the start in Thursday night's preseason finale and finished with 68 yards and a score on 12 carries. RB Jonathan Williams also played and ran it 16 times for 64 yards and a TD. "I don’t think it’s set in stone that Williams will be the clear-cut No. 2 RB behind Alvin Kamara to start the season," Triplett writes. "I think the timeshare between Williams and Scott could continue into the regular season after Scott has impressed in recent weeks and drawn praise from Sean Payton." The playing time split will be something to monitor in Week 1. We can't trust either guy in fantasy lineups to open the season.
