Miles Sanders Fantasy Football News 2020

Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a left knee injury in the Wild Card loss to the Seahawks. He was in a brace and on crutches on Monday but told reporters that he doesn't need surgery. We'll keep an eye on this, but it doesn't sound like something that'll impact his offseason. Sanders figures to fly off the board early in 2020 fantasy drafts after totaling 716 yards and 4 TDs over his final 7 games.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game against the Seahawks. He seems to be in better shape health-wise than we initially thought. Sanders now looks like a more interesting play for both your playoff-long fantasy leagues and the Wild Card DFS slate.

The "plan" is for Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) to play against the Seahawks on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Sanders missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday but is expected to get on the field tomorrow. "The issue has been inflammation. He is improving," Fowler adds. Check back tomorrow for another update on the rookie.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday. The Philadelphia media seems generally optimistic about Sanders' availability for this weekend's game against the Seahawks, but we'd still consider him truly questionable at this point. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson labeled RB Miles Sanders (ankle) "day-to-day," adding "we got good news on him." It sounds like the rookie avoided a serious injury and has a real chance to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. We'll monitor his status throughout this week.

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 TE Zach Ertz (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. It’s a bit of a surprise after he played through the fractured rib last week. Ertz’s absence means an every-down role for TE Dallas Goedert — and likely more targets for guys like WR Greg Ward and RB Miles Sanders.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Friday. He's expected back for this weekend's game against the Giants after missing the past 6 contests. Rookie RB Miles Sanders has been excellent in Howard's absence, though, so Howard figures to return to a minimal role.

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 (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game with the injury. His absence leaves a workhorse role to Miles Sanders.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Giants. The Athletic's Zach Berman reports that Howard still hasn't been cleared for contact, so consider him a long shot to play Monday. That means another game as lead back for RB Miles Sanders, who's averaged 13.3 carries and 4.7 targets over the past 3 weeks.

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. But at this point, assume he won't play in that one. Howard's absence would again make Miles Sanders a RB2 with upside.

The Eagles have ruled RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. 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.
