The Eagles kick off the regular season in eight days, Sept. 8 against the Redskins at the Linc.
So, check out what ESPN thinks of rook Miles Sanders’ fantasy value:
Miles Sanders is the only Eagles RB you want this year
Make no mistake, Sanders is a talented rookie and I like him at his current ADP, but I also really like Jordan Howard at his current ESPN ADP of RB38 (13th round).
Last season, the Eagles ranked eighth in red zone rush percentage and Howard has at least nine rushing TDs in each of the past two seasons.
Doug Pederson has used multiple backs every year he has been with Philadelphia and I don’t expect that to change.
If Howard stays healthy, he’s going to have a weekly fantasy-viable role.
