Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders averaged more than five yards per carry and 97 yards from scrimmage per game from Week 8 on last season, and Tim McManus of ESPN.com believes there is 'no doubt' that Sanders will be the lead back in 2020.
Huddle Up: Once he was given the reins of the Philadelphia backfield, Sanders became a star, showcasing explosiveness and versatility. He's a true every-down weapon for the Eagles, and he could creep into RB1 territory as soon as this season. At worst, he should be a high-floor RB2.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders' 1,327 yards from scrimmage in 2019 ranked 16th in the NFL, and his 50 receptions were the most among rookie running backs.
Huddle Up: As expected, Sanders saw his role grow throughout the year, and he eventually cemented himself as Philadelphia's lead back. He should lead the ground attack from Day 1 in 2020, making him a high-end RB2 option in all formats.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) was spotted wearing a brace on his left knee and on crutches following the team's NFC Wild Card loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but he insisted he will not require offseason surgery.
Huddle Up: Although his rookie season came to a bit of a rough end thanks to ankle and knee injuries, Sanders became only the seventh rookie in league history to account for 800 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. With Jordan Howard set to become a free agent this spring, the Penn State alum should be poised to take a firm grasp on the starting job in Philadelphia and serve as a high-end RB2 for fantasy purposes.

Huddle Up: The Eagles have yet to make any kind of decision on Sanders, who participated in practice Friday for the first time all week, and the guess is we'll have to wait until the inactives list is posted Sunday afternoon to gain any final clarity.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) will practice Friday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: He looks to be good to go against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend. The Seahawks allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to the position the last five weeks of the season, and Sanders has been a beast. He'll be an RB1 option in PPR formats in playoff leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Sanders is expected to practice in some capacity Friday, Jan. 3, with it being the true test of his availability for the game Sunday, Jan. 5, against the Seattle Seahawks. He finished the regular season with three of the strongest games of his rookie season and will be a fantasy option as long as he's on the field.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) told reporters he intends to return to practice Friday, Jan. 3, and anticipates playing in the team's NFC Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Even a limited practice on Friday would be a good sign for Sanders, although it's worth considering the possibility the Eagles will manage his workload on Sunday given how well Boston Scott has played when he's been given a chance. If the rookie can go, expect something approaching a 60-40 split. Even with a scaled-back workload, Sanders is a threat for 100 total yards and a touchdown.
