Miles Sanders was flat-out dominant down the stretch of the 2019 season. He started the Philadelphia Eagles' final seven games of the year, averaging 98.0 yards from scrimmage on 18.7 touches per game, adding 4 total touchdowns during that span.

That bump in production came when Sanders took over for Jordan Howard, and according to this quote from the Eagles' RB coach, Sanders should be in line for another huge role in 2020.

Miles Sanders Fantasy Outlook

If Sanders is going to be the feature back, as he was down the stretch in 2019, he's going to be a dominant fantasy asset. From Week 11-16, Sanders was fantasy's RB3 in PPR formats, tallying an absurd 112.5 points during that span.

With his current average draft position (ADP) of RB9, Sanders is going to be an excellent value pick if his role allows.

Though coach comments should always be taken with a grain of salt this time of year, this is certainly a good sign for Sanders. He's currently the RB10 in our 2020 fantasy football rankings.
