Philadelphia Eagles RBs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott nearly had an equal amount of touches (Sanders had a 35-29 edge) through the team's first seven training camp practices, and beat reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks tweeted that he believes the two backs could wind up coming close to equally splitting touches during the regular season.
Huddle Up: Despite playing in four fewer games (16-12), Sanders out-touched Scott 192-105 last season, but the latter was more productive as a pass receiver, finishing with 15 more receiving yards (212-197) on only three fewer receptions (28-25). Fifth-round rookie Kennth Gainwell also should figure in the Philly RB mix, but for now regard Sanders as a RB2 and Scott as a RB5.

Philadelphia Eagles exclusive rights free-agent Boston Scott signed his one-year tender offer Thursday, April 1. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Scott probably will be the No. 2 running back for the Eagles next season and will see a handful of touches each week. He can be a handcuff to Miles Sanders but will not have a lot of value in most leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott produced six rushing yards on three carries Sunday, Dec. 13, vs. the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. He landed his only target for an 11-yard gain.
Huddle Up: After having sporadic utility in the last month or so, Scott barely touched the ball as backfield mate Miles Sanders exploded in Week 14. The Arizona Cardinals are ahead, and while the matchup is quite favorable for pass-catching options, the low volume makes Scott an unnerving gamble.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott posted two carries for seven yards in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added five receptions for 40 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Scott had a 17-yard reception on the team's final offensive drive to salvage the line, but overall it was still rather mediocre. As long as Miles Sanders remains healthy then Scott's fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Eagles travel to meet the Packers in Week 13.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott (abdomen) practiced in full Saturday, Nov. 28, and doesn't have an injury designation for the game Monday, Nov. 30, against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Scott doesn't have much fantasy value with Miles Sanders back in the lineup. He can be stashed as a handcuff.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott (abdomen) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Scott should see a handful of targets if he is active for the Week 12 game and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott (abdomen) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26. The Eagles did not hold a practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Scott is still involved in the offense even with Miles Sanders back in the lineup. He should be in involved in the running and passing game this week and could be a flex option in some leagues because of the matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott rushed five times for 24 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns while adding three receptions for 26 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Scott's workload was rather limited with Miles Sanders continuing to lead the backfield now that he is healthy again. Scott is only worth retaining in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Eagles host the Seahawks on Monday night in Week 12.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott rushed for 63 yards and one touchdown on three carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught one pass for 11 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Scott saw a big drop in touches with Miles Sanders back in the lineup but was still able to have value for fantasy players. He probably will see a handful of touches each game and can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott had 15 carries for 70 yards in a Week 8 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Scott also caught two passes for nine yards.
Huddle Up: Scott put up decent numbers, though nothing like what other teams had done against Dallas recently. His continued appeal will depend on the health of Miles Sanders, who has a good chance of returning when the Eagles next take the field on Nov. 15.
