Fantasy football advice

Sanders is having one of the better years in his young career. He has played in all 16 games to this point of the season. Sanders has 248 carries for 1,236 yards with 11 touchdowns. Despite his success on the ground, he still doesn’t have much involvement in the passing game for Philly. He has 20 receptions on 25 targets for just 78 additional yards. It is definitely worth keeping an eye on to see how Sanders is able to progress this week in practice.
