Eagles' Boston Scott: FInishes season strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed 61 times for 245 yards and five touchdowns while adding 24 catches on 26 targets for 204 yards in 11 regular-season games in 2019.

Scott started the year buried on the depth chart but contributed solidly once he got the opportunity. With Darren Sproles (hip) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, Scott got the opportunity to run what was essentially the "Sproles role" with 176 rushing yards on 44 attempts and 26 catches on 28 targets for 222 receiving yards over the Eagles' last five games, including their wild-card loss. The 24-year-old has likely earned a similar role on the team next season with Sproles headed for retirement.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Three TDs in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns and caught four of six targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.

Miles Sanders left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury and did not return, but even with Jordan Howard back in the lineup, it was Scott who stepped up and led the team in both rushing and receiving yards while scoring three red-zone TDs in the second half as the Eagles broke the game open. With the NFC East title now in hand and a wild-card battle against the Seahawks ahead next weekend, Scott could again have a significant role in the offense if Sanders isn't 100 percent.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Expected to have role in game plan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Thursday that Scott has earned the chance to maintain a role in the Eagles' offensive game plan, even with fellow back Jordan Howard (shoulder) expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

While Howard has been sidelined for the past six games, Scott has stepped in as the top complement to Miles Sanders, who ascended to the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. Over that stretch, Scott has averaged a healthy 4.7 yards per carry while also shining as a pass catcher, hauling in all 19 of his targets for 115 yards. Howard's return probably won't affect the distribution of passing-down work between Sanders and Scott, but how the carries are divvied up between the trio is less certain. At any rate, Scott's fantasy utility looks like it could be capped while he ranks as the second or third option in what may prove to be a three-man backfield committee.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Six grabs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed three times for 12 yards and caught all six of his targets for seven yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over Dallas.

Scott got out-touched again by Miles Sanders, 26-9, but the Louisiana Tech product caught enough balls to matter in PPR leagues. Sanders similarly out-snapped Scott, 59-20, on offense. Scott's role could be reduced if Jordan Howard (shoulder) is able to return as the Eagles look to lock down the NFC East in Week 17 against the Giants.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Seven catches as Sanders shines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed six times for 26 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 37-27 win over Washington.

Scott delivered a nice PPR performance, but he played second fiddle to Miles Sanders, who turned 19 carries and six catches into 172 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. Until Jordan Howard (shoulder) returns, Scott should continue to see a handful of touches per game in a change-of-pace role behind Sanders.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Surprise standout Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-17 overtime win over the Giants. He also caught all six of his targets for 69 yards.

Scott saw his role increase after starting tailback Miles Sanders was forced to exit due to leg cramps. Although Sanders would ultimately return to action, Scott made the most of his opportunity, scoring a two-yard touchdown to close the third quarter and popping big plays in both the running and passing games. In the end, the 2018 sixth-rounder topped 100 scrimmage yards for the first time, helping the Eagles to a crucial victory. Such an accomplishment could very well earn him some extra snaps in Week 15 versus Washignton, even with Sanders likely to be fully healthy.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Confined to special teams in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott played no offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Scott played exclusively on special teams in this one, seeing seven snaps there. With Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, it was the Miles Sanders show for Philadelphia.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Plays just three snaps on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott played just three offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Even with a good number of offensive weapons missing, Scott didn't see a carry or a target. He did get two kick returns, returning them for 45 total yards. It seems that will be his primary role going forward.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Sees seven carries in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball seven times for 26 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England.

Scott tied his season-high in carries but wasn't able to do much with them. He started alongside Miles Sanders but saw just 14 offensive snaps compared to 64 for Sanders. The 24-year-old also handled punt and kick returns for the Eagles. With Darren Sproles (quad) out for the season and Jordan Howard's shoulder ailing, Scott could see a similar role Week 13 against Seattle, even with the team's recent addition of Jay Ajayi.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Confined to special teams in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott played just seven special-teams snaps and none on offense in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.

As expected, Scott moved back a to a distant fourth on the depth chart with the return of Darren Sproles, who only played 10 offensive snaps himself. Injury will have to strike again before the former sixth-round pick gets another crack in the Eagles' backfield.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Scores first touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed five times for six yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-13 win over Buffalo. He also lost a fumble.

Scott gained two-thirds of his yards on his first touch of the game, a scoring run up the middle that made it 24-13 in the third quarter. After the defense forced a Buffalo three-and-out on the next possession, he muffed the ensuing punt, keeping the Bills in the contest momentarily. The team went back to the 24-year-old for mop-up duty after they had salted the game away with another touchdown, but he lost yards or was tackled for no gain on three of them. In all, the sixth-round pick from 2018 played just nine snaps on offense and probably has at most one more week of playing time left with Darren Sproles (quad) due to return to practice this week.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Gets ball on every snap Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried seven times for 32 yards and hauled in his only target for a five-yard reception in Sunday's 37-10 loss to the Cowboys.

Scott has only logged 12 offensive snaps in his two games since being promoted from the Eagles' practice squad, but he's handled the ball on each of those plays. The Louisiana Tech product could become a healthy inactive once Darren Sproles (quadriceps) returns, but it's far from a sure thing the veteran will be ready to play Week 8 in Buffalo. If Sproles is out again, Scott should be in store for a handful of touches behind Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott has been promoted to the Eagles' active roster ahead of the team's Week 6 clash with the Vikings.

The team placed fellow running back Corey Clement (shoulder) on injured reserve to create the roster spot. With Darren Sproles battling a quadriceps injury, Scott will slot in as Philadelphia's No. 3 running back behind Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders.

Boston Scott: Joining Philly's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott went unclaimed on waivers and plans to sign with Philadelphia's practice squad, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Scott shined in the Eagles' second preseason game, rushing seven times for 43 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately for the 24-year-old, the Eagles have good depth in their backfield and decided to waive him, but he'll at least stick around in Philadelphia.

Boston Scott: Bounced from Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Scott on Saturday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The Eagles are deep at running back, which meant Scott was really going to have to stand out on special teams for any chance at landing on their 53-man roster. He was ultimately unable to make enough of an impression and must now look for a new opportunity.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Sees significant action Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott (ankle) rushed seven times for 43 yards and one touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars.

Scott was held out of the preseason opener with an ankle injury, but he was ready to go for the second week of the preseason. The 24-year-old is coming off a rookie season in which he didn't play an offensive snap in two games, and he's facing tough odds to make the 53-man roster given the quality of backs already in the backfield.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Out with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott (ankle) won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Titans, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Scott has been dealing with an ankle injury this week, so he would be out there Thursday if he was healthy. This isn't a great sign for the Louisiana Tech product, considering the team signed Darren Sproles this offseason, and the depth chart is littered with quality backs. It's likely that youngsters Miles Sanders and Donnel Pumphrey get most of the run in the offense for Thursday's game.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Managing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott is considered day-to-day with an ankle injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Scott saw his chances at making the 53-man roster take a dive after the Eagles re-signed Darren Sproles in late July, and a significant absence during training camp would further weaken those odds. The 24-year-old appears to have avoided that situation, but he may still be questionable for Thursday's preseason opener against the Titans.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Sees roster chances shrink
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott is likely ticketed for the practice squad now that the Eagles have re-signed Darren Sproles, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Per coach Doug Pederson's own words in June, Scott had seized hold of the 'Darren Sproles' role after a fantastic spring. That was until the real Darren Sproles decided to come back, making a similarly diminutive back like Scott redundant. The 24-year-old will now likely have to depend on injury in order to see the playing field in the regular season.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Gets Sproles comparison
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson compared Scott to Darren Sproles, Bo Wulf of The Athletic reports. "[Scott]'s a guy that can kind of fill a Darren Sproles (role)," Pederson said. "He's in that same body type and same quickness. We're working him in a couple of different situations as a runner, as a punt returner and just kind of getting a feel for him."

Selected by New Orleans in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, Scott is listed at 5-foot-6, 203 pounds. He spent most of his rookie year on the Saints practice squad until the Eagles poached him in December. While the comparison makes sense in terms of size, Scott faces an uphill battle to earn the kind of role Sproles occupied the past few seasons. Fellow Eagles running backs Corey Clement (knee) and Wendell Smallwood have proven capable of handling passing downs, while Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (hamstring) already appear locked into roster spots. Scott still warrants watching throughout the summer, particularly if Clement and Sanders struggle to get healthy.
