Miles Sanders | Eagles RB

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson expects Miles Sanders (hamstring) to be ready to go for training camp.

After Sanders basically missed all of offseason training with a hamstring issue, Pederson said, "I fully expect him to come in ready, come in healthy, ready to go. We have to get him in the mix early, Definitely have to see exactly where he is mentally form all the mental reps that he took this spring, and slowly work him into the mix and see just how he can help us on game day." The second-round pick figures to get a great shot at earning a large role as rookie season season, but Pederson and the coaching staff isn't just going to hand him anything if he's unable to stay on the field this summer n preparation for the regular season. Also, Pederson recently talked up Jordan Howard's ability as a top running back in the league, and Sanders will likely really need to show out over the next several weeks to earn a significant role against the Redskins in Week 1. For now, Howard is the preferred fantasy option in Philadelphia's backfield, but Sanders has all-around ability to make an impact, and we'll see where things stand late this summer when most leagues have their drafts.

Miles Sanders (hamstring) will miss mandatory minicamp.

The second-round rookie running back from Penn State is falling behind a bit by missing all this offseason time with a lingering injury, but Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley said he has "no doubt" that Sanders is "special." Philadelphia might not be worried about Sanders missing a ton of time this offseason, but fourth-year running back Jordan Howard should have a leg-up in the starting running back competition as we sit here in June. Ideally, Sanders will be ready to go for Day 1 of training camp this summer as he looks to earn a big role as a rookie this season.

The Eagles have selected Penn State running back Miles Sanders with the No. 53 pick (second round) in the 2019 NFL Draft. 

Following up Saquon Barkley is obviously no easy task, but Miles Sanders was more than exceptional in the role, rushing for 1,274 yards and nine touchdowns last season after finally getting his opportunity with the Nittany Lions when Barkley went to the NFL. In Philadelphia, Sanders might have a chance to vault to the top of the depth chart as a well-rounded runner with excellent feet to compliment his underrated size/power, though Jordan Howard might not be easy to pass on the depth chart. He needs to clean up the fumbles, but from a fantasy perspective, Sanders is worth considering as a top-five pick in rookie drafts, and how this summer shakes out will likely determine his early value in redraft leagues.
