Miles Sanders/Boston Scott, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks
In looking at what Seattle has done defensively, no opposing quarterback has scored more than two touchdowns against them, regardless of throwing, rushing, or a combination of the two. However, the Seahawks’ run defense has been exposed in the month of December, allowing three straight feature running backs to score two touchdowns each. In another game, against the Rams, they allowed Malcolm Brown and Todd Gurley to each score a touchdown.
The question will be, how much Sanders (coming off a sprained ankle) and Scott will split touches, and if Jordan Howard is a factor in the game. I would prioritize Scott as the healthiest, low cost option of the three. He is sure to get a moderate amount of touches, but Sanders could get significant carries if he’s 100 percent. I’d monitor the health status of each but peg them each as flex starts and no more.
