Eagles RB Miles Sanders tallied 11 carries for 42 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's NFC Championship win vs. the 49ers. Teammate Kenneth Gainwell led the team with 48 rushing yards. Sanders, QB Jalen Hurts, and RB Boston Scott combined for 4 rushing TDs in a game against a 49ers' defense that ranked as the single-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. Eagles OC Shane Steichen and company deserve a great deal of credit for this momentous victory. The Eagles will now be preparing to face the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders racked up 144 yards and 2 TDs on 17 carries in Sunday's lopsided win over the Giants. His biggest strike came on a 40-yard scoring run in the 4th quarter, but Sanders would have averaged 6.5 yards per rush even without that play. He added 1 catch for 11 yards on 3 targets. RB Boston Scott added a rushing TD late in the 4th quarter as well, to go with 33 yards on 6 carries. Sanders gets another favorable matchup with the Bears in Week 15.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders gained just 24 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's win over Tennessee, the league's toughest run D on the year. He did save his fantasy line with a 4th-quarter TD from 3 yards out. Sanders also caught both of his targets for 14 yards. RB Boston Scott carried 6 times for 16 yards and caught a pass for 5. RB Kenneth Gainwell added a 3-38 receiving line on 4 targets and 3 carries for 15 yards. The Philly backfield gets a better matchup with the Giants in Week 14.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders posted an 18-71-1 rushing line in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys. It marked his 2nd highest carry total of the year and the 5th straight game in which he garnered 15+ attempts. RB Boston Scott returned from a 2-game rib injury to carry 6 times for 16 yards. RB Kenneth Gainwell rushed 5 times for 25 yards. Sanders claimed the backfield's only target in a game that saw QB Jalen Hurts go just 15-for-25 passing.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (ribs) is off the Week 6 injury report. So he'll be back for Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys after missing the past 2 weeks. Scott averaged 3.3 carries and .3 targets over the season's first 3 games, so his return is just a slight knock to RB Miles Sanders' volume projection.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (rib) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. That should mean a few extra touches for RB Miles Sanders.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (rib) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He’s not on the fantasy radar, but his absence would be a slight boost for RB Miles Sanders.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (rib) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to return for this weekend's game vs. Arizona. With Scott out last week, RB Miles Sanders set season highs with a 67% snap rate and 27 carries.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (ribs) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He's totaled 10 carries and 1 target through 3 games, so his absence could mean a few extra touches for RBs Miles Sanders and/or Kenneth Gainwell. Trey Sermon figures to be active as Philly's #3 RB on Sunday.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (rib) missed Wednesday's practice. He's totaled 10 carries and 1 target through 3 games, so his absence would free up a few touches for RBs Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell.

Miles Sanders handled 17 of the 23 Eagles RB carries in Monday night's win over the Vikings, tallying 80 yards. He also claimed half of the team's 6 RB targets, catching all 3 looks for 6 yards. Boston Scott finished 2nd on the ground (4-19), with Kenneth Gainwell trailing (2-7). They added just 1 catch apiece. Sanders' 53% snap share easily outpaced Gainwell's 26% and Scott's 21%. Through 2 games, Sanders has amassed 30 rushes vs. just 8 for Scott and 7 for Gainwell. The only downside Monday night was QB Jalen Hurts claiming both of the team's rushing scores (1 of those from 26 yards out).

Eagles RB Miles Sanders clearly led the ground work among Philly RBs in Sunday's win over the Lions, carrying 13 times vs. 5 for Kenneth Gainwell and 4 for Boston Scott. Sanders ran most efficiently as well, tallying 96 yards at 7.4 per rush. (Gainwell averaged 4.0; Scott 2.5.) Each guy claimed a rushing TD, as did QB Jalen Hurts, who ran 17 times for 90 yards. The QB's carries were a mix of designed run plays and scrambles. Sanders added 2 catches for 9 yards on 2 targets. Gainwell beat him with 4 targets (2-12 receiving) but ran 5 fewer pass routes than Sanders. It was an encouraging opener for Sanders drafters, and the Philly running game on whole.

The Eagles on Thursday claimed RB Trey Sermon off waivers. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the team had previously discussed a trade with the 49ers. Sermon took less than 2 full years to bust his way off the roster of the team that drafted him in Round 3. So it's tough to bet on a big impact from him. But he's immediately the heaviest RB in the Philly backfield. We'll see whether than can make Sermon a quick factor in short-yardage situations.

The Eagles rested RB Boston Scott -- along with many starters -- in Saturday's preseason finale. RB Kenneth Gainwell played, however -- though he did leave after the team's 1st offensive possession. Brandon Lee Gowton of the Bleeding Green Nation Eagles blog writes that "points to him being RB3, which is a little weird because Gainwell seemed like RB2 for most of camp." Gainwell opened his rookie season as RB2 behind Miles Sanders before falling behind Scott and Jordan Howard in usage after Sanders went down. We'll see exactly how things sort out here. For now, both Gainwell and Scott make sense in the double-digit rounds of fantasy football drafts. Sanders is also going late enough to mitigate some of the risk on his role uncertainty and high injury probability. This could be a frustrating situation for fantasy players to deal with week to week, though.

Eagles RB Boston Scott returned to practice on Friday. He ended up missing a little over a week with a concussion. Scott is slated to open the season as Philly's #3 RB, although #1 Miles Sanders is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Eagles RB Boston Scott is sidelined with a concussion. It shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the season but is worth filing away in case he suffers another head injury. Scott is expected to open the season as Philly's #3 RB behind Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders spoke about what it’ll take for him to have a breakout year in 2022. “Being consistent, being more consistent,” Sanders said. “I’m going to be honest, opportunities. I’ll just say it simple like that. I need to be more consistent but I need opportunities.” Sanders went a step further to mention the passing game. “For those who don’t know, I can still catch,” he shared. “Like I said, it’s just opportunities. Just leave that there.” We’d love to catch Nick Sirianni’s reaction to these comments. In Sirianni's first year as Philly's HC, Sanders saw 15+ carries in only 4 of 12 games. Of course, he battled several ankle injuries and a broken hand. Entering a contract season, the 25-year-old enters training camp looking to establish a consistent role ahead of Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott.
