Miles Sanders Fantasy Outlook
Miles Sanders made the 2019 all rookie team and flashed his ability to everyone. A second round pick in 2019, Sanders is creating a name for himself in Philadelphia.
Standing 5’11 and 211 pounds Sanders is the ideal running back.
He has good speed and athleticism which makes Carson Wentz happy to have him in the same backfield.
Doug Pederson is his own play caller and probably has big plans for Sanders in 2020. The Eagles had a ton of injuries at WR in 2019 and to be honest, Pederson likes to throw the ball.
Pederson has been quoted that he needs to run the ball more but it seems that he forgets that during the heat of the game.
When the Eagles do run, most the time it is out of shotgun which is more of Sanders game.
Sanders had a healthy 4.6 yards per carry average in 2019.
He also will not have to share time with Jordan Howard this year so do not be surprised if this is Sanders breakout year.
Philadelphia Eagles Offensive Line 2020
Projected Starting Line: LT: Andre Dillard, LG: Issac Seumalo, C: Jason Kelce, RG: Jack Driscoll, RT: Lane Johnson
The Eagles took a huge hit this offseason when starting RG Brandon Brooks tore his achilles. He will miss the 2020 season. Brooks is widely regarded as one of the best guards in the NFL. Replacing him should be 4th round pick Jack Driscoll. Driscoll has big shoes to fill in his first NFL season.
Andre Dillard was a first round pick in 2019. He only started 4 games last season but the Eagles expect him to blossom into a good player.
Center Jason Kelce is one of the best at his position. He also provides tremendous leadership.
Right tackle Lane Johnson is as good as it gets. Expect him to continue his pro bowl status.
Issac Seumalo has played for the Eagles his entire career. He has made 32 starts in his 5 seasons. Before last season started they extended him on a three year contract good thru 2021.
The Eagles have invested a lot in this unit. It is a good one and even with the loss of Brooks, expect this group to continue being a strength on this team.
Miles Sanders Strength of Schedule
The Eagles have a gauntlet weeks 4-6. They will travel to San Francisco and Pittsburgh before hosting the Ravens. All 3 finished in the top 10 during 2019 for total defense.
