There's "optimism" that Eagles RB Miles Sanders will be ready for the start of the season, according to The Athletic's Bo Wulf and Zach Berman. The fact that there's only "optimism" is a bit surprising considering the team has downplayed the severity of the issue. "There’s much intrigue about Sanders’ status, considering he’s been bothered by this type of injury before," Wulf and Berman write. "It’s hard to speak in definitive terms about a hamstring injury to a running back, but with three weeks to go before a meaningful game, the early word is Sanders should be back on the field by then." We'll keep a close eye on Sanders' status.
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 racked up 143 yards and 2 TDs on 21 carries in Sunday night's win over the Packers. He and QB Jalen Hurts (157 rushing yards) powered a 363-yard rushing performance for Philadelphia. Sanders added 3 receptions for 17 yards on 3 targets. RB Kenneth Gainwell added a rushing TD among 8 carries for 39 yards. Week 13 holds a much tougher rushing matchup with a Titans defense that has been toughest in the league on RBs.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders gained 93 yards on 17 carries against the Texans in Week 9. He also found the end zone for the 3rd straight week. Those scores have been critical, as Sanders has now gone 2 straight games without a target. (He’s topped 2 catches in a game only once all year.) The 25-year-old is on his way to perhaps the best pure rushing season of his career. Just be aware that he’s likely to disappoint over the next couple of weeks as his TD rate slows. In Week 10, he'll face a tough Washington run D. Sanders tallied just 12-40 against the Commanders back in Week 3.
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 Miles Sanders racked up 134 yards and 2 TDs on 27 carries in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He handled 79.4% of Philadelphia's RB rushes and 3 of the 5 backfield targets. Sanders caught 2 of those for another 22 yards. Kenneth Gainwell claimed the other 2 targets, turning them into just 1 catch for a loss of 2 yards. Gainwell added a 10-yard TD run but totaled only 19 yards on 5 attempts. With Boston Scott out, Trey Sermon claimed the other 2 carries and took them for gains of 14 and 5 yards. It was the largest carry total of Sanders' career and just his 4th game ever with 20+ rushes. He rushed 13, 17 and 15 times over this season's 1st 3 contests.
