Eagles' Boston Scott: Signs tender with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott has signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With only two accredited seasons to his name, Scott will need to wait until next spring for his first shot at restricted free agency. He's a clear No. 2 on Philadelphia's backfield depth chart heading into April, but there's still plenty of time for the team to add competition before training camp. Scott averaged 4.7 yards on 80 carries and 8.5 yards on 25 catches last season, though he barely got any touches when Miles Sanders was healthy. Scott's four starts accounted for 51 of his 80 carries (64 percent) and nine of his 25 receptions (36 percent).

Eagles' Boston Scott: Likely staying in Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott will be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, meaning he can only negotiate with the Eagles, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

There was talk of Scott being a restricted free agent, but that would've required three accrued seasons in the NFL, rather than the two he's been credited with. A 2018 sixth-round pick, Scott started his career on the Saints' practice squad before the Eagles poached him in December of 2018. He's since played in 29 regular-season games for Philadelphia, taking 141 carries for 618 yards (4.4 YPC) and six touchdowns, with 49 catches for 416 yards (8.5 YPR) and another score. The 5-foot-6 Scott is one of the shortest players in the NFL, but his dense build (203 pounds) and impressive receiving skills have helped him develop into a reliable backup RB behind Miles Sanders. That said, there's always the possibility of Philadelphia adding backfield competition this offseason, especially if the new coaching staff lacks confidence in Sanders and/or Scott.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Posts 79 total yards in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott filled in for Miles Sanders (knee) and finished with 65 yards on 15 carries and two receptions (five targets) for 14 yards in Sunday's 20-14 loss to Washington.

Scott made his third spot start in place of Sanders this season, and the results were on par with his previous opportunities in which he turned in solid, yet unspectacular, fantasy lines. The 25-year-old is a solid backup with some ability as a pass catcher, but he doesn't have much upside when he is asked to be anything more than that. Scott will become an restricted free agent this offseason, but with big turnover potentially coming for the Eagles, it is unclear whether the front office plans to retain him or not.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Replacing Miles Sanders again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott is expected to lead the Philadelphia backfield Sunday against Washington, as teammate Miles Sanders has been ruled out with a knee injury.

Scott played 56, 69 and 66 percent of the offensive snaps in the three other games Sanders missed this season, averaging 12 carries for 50.3 yards and 2.3 catches for 24.7 yards, with his one touchdown being a game-winning reception Week 7 against the Giants. Scott now gets another chance to strut his stuff in a primetime game, though any of Corey Clement, Jason Huntley and Jordan Howard could also have a role in the game plan.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Plays just eight snaps in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball twice for 17 yards in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Scott saw his fewest carries since Week 5 but made the most of them, as he gained as many yards as he had in any of his past four contests. With Miles Sanders healthy, the 25-year-old is looking at a similar role in Week 17 against Washington.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Just one touch in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott caught his lone target for a seven-yard gain in Sunday's 33-26 loss to Arizona.

Scott played 15 snaps in the game and has not seen more than 16 in any of his past three outings. The Louisiana Tech product did not register a carry for the first time all season and has not seen more than four touches in a contest since Week 12.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Three carries in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball three times for six yards and caught his lone target for 11 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over New Orleans.

Scott has seen single-digit touches in five straight games. Meanwhile, Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts garnered 32 rushing attempts between them Sunday, suggesting Scott's role in the offense isn't likely to grow due to the switch at quarterback.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Just two touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed twice for nine yards and was unable to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 30-16 loss to Green Bay.

Scott has not topped eight touches since the Eagles' Week 9 bye. He remains a fantasy afterthought as long as Miles Sanders is healthy.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Catches five passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed twice for seven yards and caught five of six targets for 40 yards in Monday night's 23-17 loss to the Seahawks.

Scott trailed only Dallas Goedert for Philadelphia's team lead in receptions. Despite the presence of Miles Sanders ahead of him on the depth chart, Scott has persisted as a useful change-of-pace threat, with his versatility as a pass-catcher working as an added bonus. Look for him to remain in the mix as a complementary piece in Week 13 versus the Packers.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Green light for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott (abdomen) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Scott upgraded to full participation at Saturday's practice, so he's full speed ahead for Monday's primetime matchup. Miles Sanders is healthy and remains the clear lead back. Scott has still received plenty of work on offense with Sanders in the equation, as he played 40 percent of the offensive snaps in last week's win against the Browns, producing 50 yards on eight touches.

November 26, 2020 05:08 PM
Eagles' Boston Scott: Tending to abdominal injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott (abdomen) was listed as limited on Thursday's practice estimate.

In the seven contests in which Miles Sanders has been active this season, Scott has totaled 29 touches for 185 yards and one TD while averaging 17.4 offensive snaps per game. Such a workload is difficult to rely upon for consistent fantasy output, and now with an abdominal injury in tow, Scott has a cloud hanging over his head for Monday night's game against the Seahawks.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Produces 50 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried five times for 24 yards and caught all three of his targets for an additional 26 yards during Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Browns.

Scott averaged a respectable 4.8 yards per carry and again made an impact as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. He had at least 74 scrimmage yards in each of his previous three games; although he took a step back in this one, he made the most of his touches even as Miles Sanders got the ball 19 times. Up next is a Monday night matchup against the Seahawks. Scott could see a few extra passes thrown his way if Philadelphia finds itself playing from behind for most of the game.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Breaks off long touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball three times for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Giants. He chipped in one reception for 11 yards.

Scott saw his opportunity decrease significantly due to the return of Miles Sanders. Even with only four total touches, he still managed to provide the Eagles with their most explosive play of the contest when he ripped off a 56-yard touchdown to start the second half. Despite the impressive run, Scott touched the ball only once more the remainder of the game, making it clear that Sanders is the lead back so long as he remains healthy.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Effective in another spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed 15 times for 70 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 23-9 win over Dallas.

Scott received another start in place of the injured Miles Sanders (knee), and while he wasn't able to replicate last week's trip to the end zone, he produced well with the increased workload (4.7 yards per carry). The Eagles have an upcoming bye week, which could allow Sanders to get closer to full strength. However, if Sanders is unable to go, Scott will get another start in a plus matchup when the Eagles take on the Giants in Week 10.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Set for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott will draw the start at running back against Dallas on Sunday, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

Miles Sanders (knee) has already been ruled out for Week 8, so Scott will be the lead back for a second straight game. He touched the ball 15 times last week, totaling 92 yards and a touchdown. The projected game script against a Dallas team that has only scored 13 points over its last two games and will be starting a third-string rookie QB, would seem to indicate that another solid outing for the 25-year-old is in store.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Works as lead back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed 12 times for 46 yards and brought in three of five targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 22-21 win over the Giants on Thursday night.

With Miles Sanders (knee) out of action, Scott had an opportunity to take on lead-back duties versus a team that he racked up three rushing touchdowns against in Week 17. On this occasion, Scott found the end zone only once and did so through the air, and he did so at the most critical time possible. The 25-year-old reeled in a perfectly thrown but contested 18-yard pass down the right sideline with 40 seconds left with what turned out to be a game-winning touchdown. If Sanders isn't available to return for a Week 8 battle against the Cowboys on Sunday, Nov. 1, it appears Scott is certainly the prime candidate to helm the backfield once again in what would be a very favorable matchup.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Primary replacement for Sanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott is expected to handle the bulk of the touches out of the Philadelphia backfield in Thursday's game against the Giants, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

After coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that top back Miles Sanders (knee) won't play Week 7, Scott is positioned to start for the Eagles, just as he did Week 1, when Sanders was sidelined with a hamstring injury. Corey Clement and Jason Huntley also loom as candidates to see work out of the backfield, though Scott out-snapped Clement by a substantial margin after Sanders left the field in the Week 6 loss to the Ravens (Huntley was inactive). 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 afford the 25-year-old enough opportunities to turn in a serviceable fantasy performance even if he remains inefficient.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Likely to lead Week 7 RB committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said that the Eagles would likely use a running-back-by-committee Thursday against the Giants if starter Miles Sanders (knee) is unavailable, with 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott carried the ball once for three yards in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Scott was factored out of the contest as the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
