I learned absolutely nothing on the Eagles RB situation today

Howard has looked like himself a boring plodding RB that runs into his Oline and leans forward for a 2-4 yards.  Sanders looks far more dynamic but he's also a rookie and with that comes some roo

Miles Sanders: 5-11, 211 lbs.  Drafted 52nd overall.  4.49 40-yard dash.  4.19 20-yard shuttle.  6.89 3-cone drill.   Lesean McCoy: 5-11, 210 lbs.  Drafted 52nd overall.  4.48 40-yard dash.  4.18

Word is that Howard is for sure the starter, and this is a RBBC all the way.

Sanders is change of pace back only, despite the talent. Unless their are a lot of cuts made to the RB depth on the Eagles then he is in line for only a portion of the touches.  To few for his ADP right now.

As a Philly native this certainly isnt the "word". Curious as to where you got this information from. We expect Miles to get work early and often in games.  Firmly expecting 12-15 touches per game right from the get go. I'd say 50% Miles - 25% Howard - 25% Sproles/Clement right from the start.

I will take it from the Philly natives and fans.   If you are saying that is the word.   Awesome!    I hope he gets a little more play, but I would be happy with 12-15.

The information is that Howard is the starter and they will have a RBBC approach to the year. ( Plus the amount of RB's on roster/ Sproles taking touches etc)  and a healthy dose of paranoia about my draft pick.

But, then I looked at the age of Sproles ( 36) and realized that he is not a threat.

At this point everything looks good except Howard is still in the way .  For now.

Philly native here and I disagree. I'm with Gohawks on Howard.

I own Sanders, and I believe Howard will be the starter and biggest piece of the committee.  Until Sanders takes the job from him.  No prediction on when that might be, but drafting Sanders as your RB3 or 4 is a nice lottery ticket.  Drafting him as your RB2 is a recipe for a disappointing season.

Is it safe to say Sanders is a similar pick to Kerryon last year, except on a better team?

Sanders is going at 5.04 this year and Kerryon was 5.07 last year in half-ppr.

Seem like very similar situations, and Kerryon likely would have won many people leagues if it weren’t for injury.

Not a bad comparison. 

Except Kerryon had that Auburn stink on him.  Never goes away.  Roll Tide

Yes it is, except you don't have to worry about Pencil boy and his ineptitude.

Nice comp. Miles is almost certainly not as good of a receiver, but he's a better pure runner to make up for it. People slept on Kerryon cause he was "good at everything but not amazing at any one thing." Plus those injury concerns. Both have similar O-lines...

 

To me this is more reminiscent of Chubb and Hyde, though. Uncanny, actually.

FYI Eagles have arguably the best O-line in the league.

Not only that, Wentz has so many weapons that teams will never stack the box. Miles Sanders is gonna eat.

Howard for Clowney whispers

That would be incredibly stupid of Houston.

 

last I heard the Texans wanted Dillard.    No way Philly gives up their promising franchise tackle.

Jordan Howard

So a guy who got dealt for a 6th round pick is now going to get dealt again for a 25 year old generational edge pass rusher?  That seems a little unlikely.
