23-Year-Old Running BackRB

Philadelphia Eagles




$Signed a four-year, $5.35 million contract with the Eagles in May of 2019.

October 4, 2020

Sanders rushed 13 times for 46 yards and caught two passes (four targets) for 30 yards in Sunday’s 25-20 win over the 49ers.

ANALYSIS
Sanders failed to reach 100 combined yards for the first time in his three starts this season. The 49ers’ defense has been ravaged by injuries early on, but they remain stout against the run due to defensive line depth and talented linebackers. The positive news for Sanders’ fantasy owners is that he continued to dominate the running back touches, with no other back receiving more than two carries or one reception. Another rough matchup looms in the form of the Steelers’ vaunted defense Sunday, but Sanders’ volume of touches should provide a high floor in terms of fantasy production.

2019 Fantasy Outlook



Sanders only got a chance to start for one year at Penn State after Saquon Barkley left, showing enough in his final collegiate season to get drafted in the second round in 2019. A smooth, natural runner, Sanders doesn’t flash any elite traits but at least shows above-average elusiveness, balance and vision, allowing him to navigate traffic and get to the second level with consistency. He can also contribute in the passing game. At 5-11, 211, Sanders doesn’t display a lot of power or burst, and, according to scouts, can dance too much in the backfield, a habit he’ll need to break quickly to thrive in the NFL. Sanders joins an Eagles backfield now topped by former Bears bulldozer Jordan Howard, along with holdovers Darren Sproles, Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. Given the competition, the rookie needs to make a strong impression in camp to avoid being buried on the depth chart. Assuming he holds his own, Sanders could provide an effective complement to Howard, ceding short-yardage carries to the bruiser but making a strong case for regular work in other situations. Running behind an excellent offensive line as part of a potent offense, Sanders could put up useful numbers even without an official starting role.
