Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles RB Miles Sanders

Sanders rushed for 134 yards with two touchdowns on 27 carries, and he caught 2-of-3 passes for 22 yards. Fantasy managers have to be thrilled with Sanders’ production this season because he’s getting plenty of touches and taking advantage of those opportunities. Sanders already has 356 yards rushing on 4.9 yards per carry with three touchdowns and will face a Cardinals defense that allowed Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey to rush for 27 yards on eight carries.

Start or sit in Week 5?
