Eagles insider Jimmy Kempski writes that RB Miles Sanders has "quelled concerns about his ability in pass protection and as a receiver out of the backfield." The rookie hasn't caught a pass through 2 preseason games but did have a nice blitz pickup in the 2nd exhibition. Passing-game usage has been our biggest concern with Sanders' 2019 fantasy production. We're still not expecting huge receiving numbers, but we did just boost his projections there.
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. Sanders continues to play 2nd fiddle to Jordan Howard for now, leaving him as just a RB3 or flex play.
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 RB Miles Sanders has been "better than expected" in pass protection in training camp, according to insider Jimmy Kempski. We've heard tons of positive buzz on Sanders as a runner over the past couple of weeks, but this is the 1st time his ability in the passing game has been talked up. Previous reports had RB Jordan Howard looking most reliable in pass protection. Sanders' work in the passing game will be worth monitoring closely this preseason. If he can stay on the field in passing situations, it'd give him a path to top-20 fantasy production.
Sirius XM's Adam Caplan said Sunday that he expects Eagles rookie RB Miles Sanders to "get 8 to 10 touches" per game this season. That would be a little light even for Sanders' current ADP at the bottom of RB3 range. It's just the projection of 1 reporter/analyst, of course, but Caplan spent years in the Philadelphia media and is likely still more plugged in with the Eagles than with most other NFL teams. His analysis could speak to Philly's plan for Sanders. That said, there's also time for Sanders to command a larger share right away. Ultimately, Caplan's is at least a viewpoint to keep in mind as we consider Sanders this fantasy football draft season.
