    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders needs to work on his ball security, pass protection and receiving ability, in the opinion to Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice. Kempski also notes Sanders is behind in his development after having missed all of spring practices with a nagging hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: While it would be much too soon to write Sanders off for 2019, he was already facing a situation in which he needed to battle established early-down players (Jordan Howard) and solid receiving backs (Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood) for playing time. Not being able to show the coaching staff what he could do on the field during the spring isn't going to help his cause. The second-round rookie is shaping up to be a risky RB4/RB5 option in fantasy.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders has impressed running backs coach Duce Staley during offseason practices with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. 'I think he's good. I think he's good. I think that you talk to those guys, they'll all tell you that...to get better, which you want those guys to think that way, be humble, especially when it comes to catching the ball and understand where to be,' Staley said. He added he is very pleased with the progress from Sanders.

    Huddle Up: Sanders and Jordan Howard come to Philadelphia, joining a crowded backfield which includes Josh Adams, Corey Clement, Donnell Pumphrey, Boston Scott and Wendell Smallwood. Sanders is a rookie selected in the second round of the draft, so he is likely to have a solid workload in 2019, making him a worthwhile pick in deeper PPR formats.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, head coach Doug Pederson said Thursday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: If his hamstring issue lingers, it could lead to a slow start to the the year for Sanders. That being said, he should still be able to take command of the Philadelphia backfield by the end of the year. Consider him a RB4 with upside in redraft leagues and a first-round candidate in rookie drafts.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) will be held out of the team's mandatory minicamp this week due to a lingering hamstring injury, head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, June 11.

    Huddle Up: Sanders is a hot rookie name and the early favorite to lead the Philly backfield in touches. Keep an eye, though, on Sanders in training camp and see if he's able to shake his hammy issues. In the meantime, value him as a RB4.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, June 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanders may not do anything until training camp, so fantasy owners should monitor his progress. He will be part of a crowded backfield this season but could be a late-round option in leagues depending on his role.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders 'has a chance to emerge as the most valuable piece' of the Philadelphia backfield, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Philadelphia's backfield is too crowded for Sanders to start the year as an every-down back, but he could end up seeing the most touches when all is said and done. The Eagles spent a second- round pick on him, so they should keep him busy. Sanders is worth a flier at the end of drafts.

    Philadelphia Eagles second-round draft choice RB Miles Sanders signed a four-year contract with the Eagles Friday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Sanders likely will be part of a committee at running back this season with Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement also on the roster. He should be selected in all keeper leagues, but fantasy players in standard leagues should monitor him during training camp to see what his role will be in the offense.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and GM Howie Roseman said during a post-draft presser that Philadelphia has 'been looking for a runner like Miles for a few years.'

    Huddle Up: The Eagles haven't exactly invested a lot to the position lately, so it is debatable whether the absence of such a runner on their roster was by choice or not. Despite only starting one full season at Penn State after being stuck behind Saquon Barkley, Sanders is a three-down back who may have to share touches initially with Jordan Howard, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. However, it would be a surprise if he doesn't emerge from the pack and becomes a capable fantasy starter at some point in 2019.

    Penn State RB Miles Sanders was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 53rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: Sanders will be joining a crowded running back room with the Eagles and will have to compete for a role on offense. Owners should monitor the situation during training camp to see if Sanders will be valuable in fantasy leagues.
