What to do with Miles Sanders, Boston Scott in Week 5 fantasy football

What are the fantasy prospect for Miles Sanders and Boston Scott entering Philadelphia’s date with the Steelers on Sunday?

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

As a result of their 25-20 road win at San Francisco last Sunday night, the Philadelphia Eagles are 1-2-1 and in first place. The NFC East...someone has to win this division!

As the birds head across the state to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, lets look at the prospects of running backs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott

Sanders had a modest performance on the west coast last Sunday, gaining 46 yards on 13 carries and also catching two passes for 30 yards.

The second-year product out of Penn State has been far and away the Eagles’ lead back with 51 carries for 236 yards through four games but only one touchdown to show for it.

Behind him, fellow tailback Boston Scott has been a complete non-factor on the ground with a measly 18 touches for only 60 yards.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Sit both guys this week, especially considering the Steelers defense is yielding only 2.7 yards per attempt, a league best.
