    Eagles' Boston Scott: On track to start Thursday

    Boston Scott is expected to serve as Philadelphia's top running back during Thursday's divisional match against the Giants, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.Coach Doug Pederson officially ruled Miles Sanders (knee) out Wednesday, setting the stage for Scott to handle the bulk of carries versus New York. Corey Clement and Jason Huntley are also candidates to see work out of the Philadelphia Eagles' backfield, though Scott out-snapped each of them by a substantial margin after Sanders left the field Week 6. Scott also previously drew the start Week 1, when a hamstring injury forced Sanders to miss the season opener. The Giants are allowing the eighth-fewest rushing yards per game (106.5) this season, and Scott is only averaging 3.2 yards per carry through six contests, but a workhorse role could allow the 25-year-old enough opportunities to log a serviceable fantasy performance even if he remains inefficient.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Likely to lead Week 7 RB committee

    Coach Doug Pederson said that the Philadelphia Eagles would likely use a running-back-by-committee Thursday against the Giants if starter Miles Sanders (knee) is unavailable, with Boston Scott presumably stepping in as the lead option, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.Sanders exited Sunday's loss to the Ravens with a knee injury, and while the Eagles are still waiting on the results of an MRI before confirming his status for Thursday's divisional game, Chris Mortensen of ESPN relays that the 23-year-old is expected to be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks. After Sanders left the Week 6 contest following his 74-yard run midway through the third quarter, Scott out-touched the Eagles' other active running back, Corey Clement, by a 5-0 margin, though Clement had a reception nullified by a penalty. With that in mind, Scott profiles as the top candidate to absorb the bulk of Sanders' work, likely leaving Scott and Jason Huntley to handle smaller supporting roles as part of a committee.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Non-factor in Week 5

    Boston Scott carried the ball once for three yards in Week 5 against the Steelers.Scott was factored out of the contest as the Philadelphia Eagles' running backs accounted for just 12 rushing attempts. His role has steadily declined as Miles Sanders has worked up to full strength, logging 19 attempts in five contests. At this point, Scott is solely a handcuff to Sanders in the case of an injury.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Credited with just one yard in win

    Boston Scott rushed twice for one yard in Sunday's 25-20 win over San Francisco.Scott didn't record any official catches in the game, but he did pick up 17 on a short pass that was negated by penalty. Unfortunately, the Louisiana Tech product continues to see his playing time trend downward, as he saw a mere nine offensive snaps in the contest, a season low.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Gains just five yards in tie

    Boston Scott rushed three times for five yards and couldn't catch his only target in Sunday's 23-23 tie with the Bengals.It was the Miles Sanders Show once again as Scott was on the field for just 13 offensive plays. While that is more than double what Corey Clement saw (six snaps), it isn't enough to be rosterable in fantasy and likely won't be as long as Sanders is healthy.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Seven touches in loss

    Boston Scott rushed four times for 19 yards and caught all three of his targets for 24 yards in the Philadelphia Eagles' 37-19 loss to the Rams on Sunday.As anticipated, Scott took a back seat to Miles Sanders, who returned to a usual workload in his season debut. Sanders saw 23 touches to Scott's seven, going over 100 yards with a touchdown. Barring another setback for Sanders, Scott will be left to pick up scraps in this offense, making fantasy-relevant production difficult to attain.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Back in No. 2 role

    Boston Scott is set to revert to his backup role with Miles Sanders (hamstring) having returned to practice as a full participant, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.Scott saw 11 total touches against Washington on Sunday with Sanders sidelined, but he's now set to revert to his usual diminished role. The 25-year-old could still see work as a change-of-pace option against the Rams in Week 2, but with Corey Clement also handling occasional reps behind Sanders, he may not end up with enough opportunities to have a safe fantasy floor.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Totals 54 yards on 11 touches

    Boston Scott carried nine times for 35 yards and caught both his targets for an additional 19 yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington.Scott received the most carries out of the Philadelphia backfield, but he managed just 3.9 yards per rush against a tough defensive front. He made a couple of nice gains through the air but still finished with an uninspiring final stat line. Corey Clement and Jason Huntley combined for just 20 yards on seven carries, as the entire team struggled to get going after halftime. Scott was starting in place of Miles Sanders (hamstring), and he should see a diminished role if his teammate is deemed healthy enough to make his season debut in Week 2 against the Rams.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Set for major workload

    Boston Scott is expected to see a major uptick in snaps after Miles Sanders (hamstring) was ruled out ahead of Sunday's game, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The last time Scott sat atop Philadelphia's depth chart, the 25-year-old recorded 23 total touches, 138 total yards and three touchdowns in last year's Week 16 win over the Giants. While Scott will at least have Corey Clement and Jason Huntley to split some snaps with this time, it's entirely possible the backup could see a similar workload with Sanders set to miss Sunday's game. Washington's front four could pose some problems for Scott on between-the-tackles runs, but his ability to be a difference maker out of the backfield could make for a trendy play in PPR formats.

    Eagles' Boston Scott: Rejoins practice

    Boston Scott (lower body) returned to practice Monday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.The Philadelphia Eagles listed Scott as day-to-day, while lead back Miles Sanders (lower body) is considered week-to-week. That means Scott should now have an opportunity to take extra reps with the first-team offense, though Sanders is expected to resume practicing before the season opener.
