2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sanders only got a chance to start for one year at Penn State after Saquon Barkley left, showing enough in his final collegiate season to get drafted in the second round in 2019. A smooth, natural runner, Sanders doesn't flash any elite traits but at least shows above-average elusiveness, balance and vision, allowing him to navigate traffic and get to the second level with consistency. He can also contribute in the passing game. At 5-11, 211, Sanders doesn't display a lot of power or burst, and, according to scouts, can dance too much in the backfield, a habit he'll need to break quickly to thrive in the NFL. Sanders joins an Eagles backfield now topped by former Bears bulldozer Jordan Howard, along with holdovers Darren Sproles, Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. Given the competition, the rookie needs to make a strong impression in camp to avoid being buried on the depth chart. Assuming he holds his own, Sanders could provide an effective complement to Howard, ceding short-yardage carries to the bruiser but making a strong case for regular work in other situations. Running behind an excellent offensive line as part of a potent offense, Sanders could put up useful numbers even without an official starting role. Read Past Outlooks

Efficient in preseason win
RBPhiladelphia Eagles
August 15, 2019
Sanders carried five times for 31 yards in the Eagles' 24-10 preseason win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Sanders was exponentially more efficient than during his preseason debut against the Titans last Thursday, with his game-long 16-yard run serving as the highlight of his evening. The rookie has a modest eight carries through the first pair of preseason games, but he's likely to see a bump in workload during next week's contest versus the Ravens.
