I'm also deciding between Williams and Sanders. Sanders should've been getting the bulk recently but the Eagles love to have a big committee so is anything actually changing this week or is this just talk?

Edit - we get 0.5 per carry and 1.0 per reception so Williams getting a lot of carries is quite valuable too.

Gut feel but with no Ertz - I can see them leaning more in Sanders in the pass game as well.  Don't think Goedert is going to pick up all that Ertz did,  so we might see a few more passes going to Sanders.  Now, whether Carson will sail those passes over his head - different story....

Ertz still may play

Makes sense.  This should be a big day for Miles.

Miles Sanders rushed 17 times for 83 yards and caught five passes for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against Miami.

Sanders remained the Eagles' workhorse with Jordan Howard (shoulder) sidelined. He got the bulk of his carries in the first half, but his pass-game usage allowed him remained involved with the Eagles chasing points late. Sanders was left wide open in the flats for a 15-yard touchdown in the Eagles first drive. After early season struggles, Sanders has played much better the last two weeks with Howard out. Even if Howard returns in Week 14, Sanders will be the touch favorite for a plus matchup with the Giants.

Do we think Howard plays or Ajajyi gets more touches?  I think Sanders could have gotten more carries in the second half vs Miami but they were content with Wentz tossing it around. 
 

Debating on Sanders again this week over one of Cook, Chubb, Henry.

I wouldn't start him over any of them, but with Howard most likely out again, I like this MNF spot for him and will be playing him.

It’s a toss up with Cook right now. Not sure he’ll be effective. 
 

What hurts is now Eli is playing and gets a healthy squad for the first time all season. Barkley, Engram, Tate, Shepard.

They’ll hold on to the ball a bit more. But yes maybe if the Giants score a bit the Sanders screens will come.

Eagles suck, and they seem to play to the situation. Now that they don't need to win, I expect a close game. I kinda like Sanders in this spot, maybe even playing from behind. Hopefully they realize he is a good pass catcher, but it does seem to escape them a little too much.

Well, my season now rests on Sanders' shoulders. I have an 11 point lead, Sanders averages 13 points. My Round 1 playoff opponent has Janoris Jenkins (12 point avg) and Antoine Bethea (12 point avg)... the math is basically showing a tie. lol. It's going to be a nail biter but having to rely on the 1st round rookie RB I traded up to draft is pretty stinkin exciting. Relying on Wentz to actually get him the ball while he's wide open in the flat, however, is terrifying. :scared:

Im debating between him and Barkley and my gut says him.

My season depends on him having a big game and Wentz not. 

This is the excitement fantasy is about. We shall enjoy our loses like the babies we will be. lol

I got something similar.  I'm up 10 with Sanders to go but playing against Saquon and Eagles D. :unsure:

I'm in worse shape because I played Snell over A J Brown.  I'm down 23 and he has Sanders and I have Barkley.  Good night me, but I guess there is a chance.

So you say there is a chance?

Sometimes I don’t think FBG staff watches the games, Tremblay has Sanders at 19.02 PPR points for Week 15. After last night and Boston Scott’s performance, The Eagles in general and Sanders getting banged up how can you justify this.

FBG rankings change a bit later in the week. Not saying that will happen with Sanders but later week rankings are better after more time to watch games and read local news. I won't decide until later in the week whether to start Sanders or not because I've got my own reading to do.

I’m basically scouring the waivers bc I have zero faith here. His 8-10 point floor (which to me also feels like his ceiling) isn’t going to get it done for me this week.

looking at McLaurin or Cobb over him :kicksrock:

That seems accurate but hopefully with game script and designed screens go to him more than Boston Scott.

Miles Sanders rushed 19 times for 122 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 50 yards and a second touchdown in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Redskins.

Sanders converted a goal-line carry for his rushing touchdown. He was on the receiving end of an absolute dime from Carson Wentz in the back of the end-zone for his second score. Sanders also ripped off a 56-yard run on a delayed handoff where he ran past the Redskins secondary. This was the first time Sanders has went over 100 yards rushing this season and it was needed with the Eagles offense loafing for most of the day. It's a nice rebound game for Sanders, who set an Eagles rookie record for most scrimmage yards. Even if Jordan Howard returns next week, Sanders will be a high-end RB2 for Week 16 against Dallas.

His 37 points are the only thing giving me hope right now.

Best game of the season could not come at a better time!!

Hopefully Jordan Howard is inactive again in week 16.  The Eagles/Cowboys game is a 4:25PM start time, that’s the only problem.  I would think the Eagles will keep it close to the vest up until they actually have to release the official inactives before the game.  If you own Sanders in dynasty leagues, you have to be smiling.

Gonna roll him out again, not much of a choice, but I expect him to revert to the mean.

It’s between Fournette and Miles for me, Jordan Howard is making it tough, if I knew for sure that he was inactive, Miles easily will be my choice.  The only problem is Fournette’s is an early start and Miles is late☹️.  I’ve been looking to see if there was any recent updates on Jordan Howard, haven’t found anything.

By my thinking, it doesn't matter much for Sanders whether Howard plays at all. Sanders doesn't get all the snaps anyway, it's either Scott or Howard stealing the plays. Do you see Pederson making this is some sort of three-way committee?

I think if Howard plays, Scott will get way fewer touches, but I will have less confidence in starting Sanders.  I’m hoping it’s just Sanders/Scott and they get a similar ratio of touches that they had last week against the Redskins.   Sanders got the majority of touches and hopefully it continues in week 16.   I read something earlier today that said it’s trending that Howard won’t play, I got my fingers crossed🤞.

Another nice game from Miles, looking better each week, have to think he has put himself in rookie RB tier 1 discussion with Jacobs now.  I know in dynasty PPR leagues, I wouldn’t be too eager to trade Sanders for Jacobs straight up, I might do it but it’s not something I would pursue.

What he has been able to do in the passing game is really promising for the rest of his career and the total opposite of what we saw from Jacobs

I'll make a bet with you that Snell has a better NFL career than Sanders after the first 3 years.  How about $100?  I promise I'm good for it.

the beginning of this thread is hilarious, I couldn't recall who was comparing him to Snell......

The beginning of the Le'Veon Bell thread is funny too, and I'm sure a lot more player threads. To be fair, we all miss sometimes. And the ones who put their takes out there are subject to either look smart or foolish. It's what makes it fun, right?

I'm glad I got on this train though, I think the future is good.

Miles Sanders rushed 20 times for 79 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 16 win over the Cowboys, adding five receptions for 77 additional yards.

Sanders' rushing score was a one-yarder where the Cowboys didn't plug the A-Gap. You can guess where Sanders ran. Devastatingly for fantasy players, Sanders broke free for a 58-yard touchdown on the second-to-last play from scrimmage but opted to go down at the Cowboys' 20-yard line so Carson Wentz could kneel out the clock. It was savvy but tough to watch. Running wild the past few weeks as Eagles pass catchers drop like flies, Sanders has a Week 17 rematch with a Giants team where he had a "what might have been?" day in Week 14 as he played through a minor injury.
