Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Boston Scott should be the main running back for the Eagles with Sanders sidelined and played well earlier in the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) did not practice Friday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: NBC Sports Philadelphia's Dave Zangaro doesn't expect Sanders to play after the running back appeared on the injury report Thursday. NFL Media's Ian Rapoport previously reported that the second-year back would be "fine" for Week 17 against the Washington Football Team, so Friday's injury report will be telling. Boston Scott will once again assume lead-back duties and can be expected to handle at least 10 to 12 touches if Sanders misses the season finale.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Sanders received a rest Thursday or if he suffered an injury. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation, but he should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active for the game.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed 15 times for 57 yards and a touchdown and caught four of his six targets for 27 yards in a 37-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Sanders has logged at least 18 touches and 80 yards from scrimmage in each of the last three games, and the heavy workload should allow him to comfortably provide RB2 production.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed 17 times for 64 yards and caught one pass for 26 yards in a 33-26 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Sanders has 226 total yards in two games with Jalen Hurts as the starting quarterback, and he will be firmly in the RB2 mix in Week 16 against a struggling Dallas run defense.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed 14 times for 115 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Dec. 13, vs. the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. He added four catches for 21 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Philadelphia travels to Arizona in Week 15, a defense that has been a quality opponent for versatile backs. Sanders could be relied on more than usual in the coming weeks as rookie QB Jalen Hurts feels his way through the rest of the season. Sanders is a lineup lock in all redraft settings.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders ran 10 times for 31 yards on Sunday, Dec. 6, against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: If anybody has a cogent explanation for why Sanders, who is averaging 5.6 yards per carry this season, carried the ball just 10 times against a team whose primary weakness has been opponents pounding the ball against them we're all ears. The shifty back was only targeted once in the passing game, too. Perhaps his role will expand if the team slides Jalen Hurts into the starting lineup, though the Saints pose a stiff test regardless.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed six times for 15 yards in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added two receptions for seven yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Sanders averaged a season low 2.5 yards per carry, and his six carries were the lowest of the season, too. The Seattle defense did a great job shutting down the Eagles, which is surprising as they had been one of the worst defensive units in the league to date. Sanders will look to rebound in Week 13 at Green Bay.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed 16 times for 66 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns while adding three receptions for 15 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Sanders was leaned upon a little more heavily with a wet field and steady rain for most of the afternoon. He will look to re-discover the end zone in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night in a favorable fantasy matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders rushed for 85 yards on 15 carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught two passes for 10 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Sanders was back in the lineup after missing some time because of an injury and found some success on the ground. He should continue to be a focal point on offense for the Eagles and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
