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.

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.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Gains just five yards in tie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 21, 2020 12:12 AM
Eagles' Boston Scott: Seven touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott rushed four times for 19 yards and caught all three of his targets for 24 yards in the 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.

September 17, 2020 12:32 PM
Eagles' Boston Scott: Back in No. 2 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2020 08:04 PM
Eagles' Boston Scott: Totals 54 yards on 11 touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott (lower body) returned to practice Monday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

The 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.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Suffers minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles are labeling Scott as day to day with a lower-body injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Meanwhile, fellow Eagles running back Miles Sanders is listed as week to week, also dealing with an unspecified lower-body injury. Corey Clement should take on a bunch of first-team practice reps this week, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll have a significant role in the season opener, as both Sanders and Scott are still expected to be ready for Week 1 at Washington on Sept. 13. Scott is expected to serve as Philly's No. 2 back this year.

Eagles' Boston Scott: Second on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott is positioned to be the No. 2 running back in Philadelphia, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Scott did nice work in that same role late last year, scoring four TDs over the final four games of the regular season while averaging 4.0 yards on 38 carries and 8.7 yards on 23 catches. He also saw some work on punt and kick returns, so the inevitable Darren Sproles comparisons aren't solely based on his stature (5-foot-6). The Eagles probably wouldn't lean on Scott for huge workloads in the event of a Miles Sanders injury, but it is worth noting that the 25-year-old is listed at 203 pounds, making him stocky moreso than small. Beyond Sanders and Scott, the Eagles have Corey Clement and a trio of undrafted young players in their backfield.
