Game day update: Good news for Scott’s workload, as Howard appears like he’ll be limited.
Game day update: Jordan Howard is active and is usually the preferred early down back. Much depends on how close he is to 100% though. Scott has some flex appeal still.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott found his way into the end zone on Sunday against the Giants. Scott will likely have a prominent role heading into Week 17 with both Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders dealing with injuries.
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RB Boston Scott
Scott had 41 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown on Sunday after not seeing a carry in the previous two games against the New York Jets and Washington. The 26-year-old running back should get at least 10 carries in Week 17 with Sanders out with a fractured hand and Howard dealing with a stinger.
When the veteran running back got the start in Week 12, he posted 64 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown against the Giants at MetLife Stadium. Scott will be going up against a Football Team defense that allowed the Eagles to run for 238 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
If you are looking for a RB2/FLEX option in the fantasy football playoffs, then Scott seems to be a solid addition this late into the season.
