What to do with Miles Sanders in Week 12 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Miles Sanders ahead of the Eagles Week 12 matchup against the Seahawks.

Game day update: Boston Scott was removed from the final injury report and would seem to be sufficiently over his abdomen injury. This remains the Miles Sanders show, with the starter projected to score 17.1 points at ESPN in PPR leagues. Scott is listed at 4.8 points.

Miles Sanders failed to get much going last week when the Eagles played the Browns. Still, even with the running game forced into the background by the scoreboard, Sanders did rack up 66 yards on 16 carries against a tough defense. He has a much more favorable matchup this week against the Seahawks, and should be a solid performer in your fantasy lineup.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RB Miles Sanders

Sanders had 85 yards on 15 carries in Week 10 against the Giants, his first game back from a knee injury.

With Carson Wentz struggling to keep the ball in friendly hands, the Eagles offense will need to lean on Sanders if they’re going to have any hope against Seattle this week. That’s good news because Seattle has been roughed up by running backs lately. Opposing running backs have scored eight times in the Seahawks’ last five games, even though they haven’t posted big yardage. We’ll see if Sanders can add to that total, but he’s definitely worth starting this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Miles Sanders.
