2019 Outlook: Miles Sanders
2019 fantasy player outlook for Miles Sanders, RB, PHI
Miles Sanders has the chance to be the lead running back for the Eagles this year, and he's worth drafting as early as Round 5 in most leagues. The Eagles selected Sanders in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft from Penn State, and he should prove to be the best running back in Philadelphia. His main competition will come from Jordan Howard, but the Eagles also have Josh Adams, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood on the roster. But Sanders enters the NFL with the most talent of this group, and he's worth drafting as a flex option with the chance to be a starting running back in all formats. At Penn State, Sanders replaced Saquon Barkley when he left for the NFL in 2018, and he rushed for 1,274 yards (5.8 yards per carry) and nine touchdowns while adding 24 receptions for 139 yards. The Eagles don't have a good track record of featuring one running back under coach Doug Pederson -- LeGarrette Blount's 173 carries in 2017 are the most -- but Sanders could change that. He's someone to covet on Draft Day this year.
