After missing the first week of the season, Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will be back in action on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams in what should be a high-scoring affair.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott

Sanders sat out the first game of the season with a hamstring injury, but he’s been going full tilt at practice this week. It’s good news for the Eagles who couldn’t get anything going on the ground last week against Washington. Sanders won’t be the only one returning to the lineup this week either. Tackle Lane Johnson is likely be on the field this week after missing the opener.

Boston Scott was one of the backs working to replace Sanders last week. He finished the game 35 yards on nine carries, but had to leave with an injury. His struggles in pass protection against Washington could end up costing him playing time along with Sanders’ return.

Sanders is primed for a big game this week against a Rams team that allowed 96 rushing yards to Ezekiel Elliott last week. They’ll also need to run to keep Aaron Donald off Carson Wentz. In other worse, Sanders should be in your lineups this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Miles Sanders. Sit Boston Scott.
