The Philadelphia Eagles are falling apart in 2020 and sport an 0-2-1 record after tying the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3. The Eagles are running out of weapons, as Dallas Goedert and DeSean Jackson suffered injuries on Sunday. Philadelphia’s limited depth at receiver could make the running game important in its Week 4 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott

Sanders eclipsed 20 touches in Weeks 2 and 3 after missing the season opener and has accounted for more than 48 percent of the Eagles’ carries. He has 45 touches to Scott’s 21, but 11 of Scott’s touches came in Week 1 when Sanders wasn’t available. Scott has averaged five touches per game with Sanders in the fold. San Francisco has a middle-of-the-pack run defense, but has been great against the pass. Carson Wentz’s struggles could make this a big game for Sanders.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Sanders will only become more of a focal point for the Eagles moving forward.
