Miles Sanders Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Thursday. Howard has an extra day to get cleared ahead of Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

That makes Miles Sanders a solid starter across fantasy football formats -- though he could be a player to avoid in DFS at high ownership rates. Jay Ajayi carries 6 times to Sanders' 12 in last week's loss to the Seahawks and is a deep option for non-PPR leagues as well.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That means another game as lead back for Miles Sanders, who played 85% of the offensive snaps and handled 11 carries and 4 targets last week. The rookie is a RB2 with upside in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That leaves Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as Philly’s healthy WRs. We wouldn’t trust any of them in fantasy lineups. TE Zach Ertz, TE Dallas Goedert and RB Miles Sanders could be the team’s top 3 target-getters today.

The Eagles don't expect RB Jordan Howard to play today against the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's officially questionable with the shoulder injury that kept him out last week. RB Miles Sanders becomes a low-end RB2 option with Howard on the shelf.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week before missing the Patriots game. Howard is still waiting for full medical clearance. We'll see if he can get it over the next few days. If not, Miles Sanders will again serve as Philly's lead back against the Seahawks on Sunday.

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 Jordan Howard (stinger) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He still hadn’t been cleared for contact as of Friday morning, so he’s in legitimate danger of missing this one. Philly signed RB Jay Ajayi on Friday, but rookie Miles Sanders will serve as the lead back if Howard can’t go. Note that the Patriots have allowed 5.3 yards per carry to RBs over the past 5 weeks.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (shoulder) isn’t listed on the final Week 9 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. The rookie has racked up 242 total yards and 2 TDs over the past 3 weeks — but it’s come on only 21 total touches. Sanders remains just a RB3 or flex until he starts getting more volume.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Miles Sanders isn't expected to miss any time with the shoulder injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bills. The rookie broke out for 118 total yards and a score in that win -- but note that it came on just 6 touches.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Bills. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Jordan Howard will continue to get the highest share of the team's carries going forward, according to Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia. That's not a surprise, given that Howard has topped Miles Sanders in carries for 2 straight weeks and scored rushing TDs in 3 straight. It's nice to have a coach come out and say it, though, so we don't have to guess as much at the committee breakdown. Pederson's revelation doesn't kill the fantasy outlook for Sanders, who garnered 5 of Philly's 6 RB pass targets in the win over the Jets. (Howard saw none.) Both will remain relevant, but treat Howard as the top option until further notice.
