Boston Scott Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

The Saints have cut RB Jonathan Williams, who seemed on track to pick up early carries in Mark Ingram's absence. Williams' departure leaves Trey Edmunds and rookie Boston Scott as potential early touch collectors during Ingram's 4-game suspension. Don't go out of your way to draft any non-starting Saints RB over the next week, though.

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.
