Philadelphia Eagles QB Josh McCown completed 18-of-24 passes for 174 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in place of the injured QB Carson Wentz (head) in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Jan. 5. RB Miles Sanders (ankle) shook off an ankle injury to rack up a game-best 69 rushing yards on 14 attempts while adding three grabs for eight yards. RB Boston Scott ran for 25 yards on six attempts with 23 yards on three catches. TE Dallas Goedert had seven catches for 73 yards, while TE Zach Ertz had two catches for 44 yards on four targets. WR Greg Ward Jr. was the top receiver with three receptions for 24 yards.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott picked up 48 yards in a Wild Card Weekend loss. He ran the ball six times for 25 yards and added three catches for 23 more yards. Scott showed some flashes at the end of this season and should have a more significant role from Week 1 next season. He should a solid late-round PPR option.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could have tons of value on Wild Card Weekend, but it's wholly dependent on the availability of Miles Sanders (ankle). If Sanders plays and is healthy, Scott will be in only for change-of-pace and occasional passing down situations. If Sanders is limited or unavailable though, Scott will become a near every-down player. He scored three touchdowns in Week 17 after Sanders was forced to leave. DFS players should keep an eye on Eagles practice reports and pick up Scott immediately as soon as anything about Sanders being unavailable comes up.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 23-of-40 passes for 289 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 17 against the New York Giants while running for 15 yards. RB Boston Scott starred with three rushing touchdowns, ending up with 19 carries for 54 yards. He also added four receptions for a team-best 84 yards on six targets. RB Miles Sanders had nine runs for 52 yards before leaving with an injury, while TE Dallas Goedert registered four grabs for 65 yards on a team-best 10 targets. WR Greg Ward Jr. also had six snares for 43 yards on seven targets.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott ran the ball 19 times in Week 17, gaining 54 yards and scoring three touchdowns. He added four catches for 84 more yards. Scott took over as the featured back when starter Miles Sanders was forced to leave with an ankle injury. Scott wasn't particularly effective with his carries, but he made the most of his chances near the end zone, punching in three scores and leading the Eagles to an NFC East title. If Sanders is unable to go next week, Scott will be a popular DFS pick for the first round of the playoffs.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott will lose most of his fantasy relevance in Week 17 due to the return of Jordan Howard (shoulder). Scott had some good moments and flashed some play making ability, but he was always playing behind rookie Miles Sanders and will now be behind him and Jordan Howard as well. Scott will return to a special teams role with only occasional looks on offense.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott totaled just 19 yards in a Week 16 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Scott ran the ball three times, gaining 12 yards. He added six catches, somehow gaining just seven yards total. Scott was the flavor of the week a few weeks ago, but proved to be a flash in the pan. This backfield belongs to rookie Miles Sanders.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott has risen into the change-of-pace and pass-catching running back role in the Eagles offense. With Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, rookie Miles Sanders has been dominating touches out of the backfield, but Scott has remained part of the offensive game plan. His role as the pass catcher gives him some value in PPR leagues, but this backfield belongs to Miles Sanders.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott rushed six times for 26 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 39 yards in a 37-27 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 15.
Fantasy Spin: Scott has piled up 13 catches over the last two games, recording a combined 193 total yards. If Jordan Howard remains sidelined in Week 16, Scott could be a flex option in PPR formats against the Dallas Cowboys.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott retained a role in Week 15, but came back down to Earth in terms of production compared to his surprisingly strong outing in Week 14. This week, Scott ran the ball six times for 26 yards and caught seven passes for 39 yards. He was thoroughly outplayed by rookie Miles Sanders this time around and likely disappointed any fantasy owners who were chasing his previous performance.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could be a suddenly fantasy-relevant option in Week 15. Taking on a struggling Washington defense, Scott could reprise his role from Week 14, where he ran the ball 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 69 more yards. Scott will still be playing behind Miles Sanders in Week 15, but if he shows the burst he did against the New York Giants, he'll certainly be in line for more touches. He's a risky play because of his position on the depth chart, but he's basically free in most leagues and could make a significant impact if things go his way.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott rushed 10 times for a team-high 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the New York Giants on Monday, Nov. 9. He also added six receptions for 69 yards on six targets.
Fantasy Spin: Scott stepped up with Miles Sanders dealing with some cramping issues in the second half and he took advantage. Perhaps he has a much larger role in Week 15 in Washington, so fantasy owners will want to watch the situation closely.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott showed some real explosiveness and big play ability in a Week 14 overtime win over the New York Giants. Scott ran the ball 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown, adding six catches for 69 more yards. Scott looked like the best running back in an Eagles uniform all season in this one, making it look easy as he averaged almost six yards per carry in the rain. Scott got a little extra run in the second half as Miles Sanders had to miss some time with a minor injury. Scott could see his role grow in Week 15 against Washington.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott may or may not have a fantasy significant role in Week 12. The Eagles take on the Seattle Seahawks in Philly, but whether or not Scott plays significant snaps depends on the availability of Jordan Howard (shoulder). Howard is questionable at best at this point after missing Week 11, where Scott got seven carries and gained 26 yards. He's a viable replacement for Howard if fantasy owners are desperate, but rookie Miles Sanders will be the featured back if Howard is forced to miss another game.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott carried the ball seven times in Week 11, gaining 26 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game. Scott fumbled, but the Eagles recovered the ball. He was thrown into a bigger role than usual with starter Jordan Howard (shoulder) inactive for this one. Rookie Miles Sanders led the backfield, but Scott was in as his backup. With Jay Ajayi signed and Howard not expected to miss an extended period, Scott should be back in his special teams role before long.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is not a Week 9 fantasy option. Scott made some impressive moves in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was on the field mostly because of the injury to Miles Sanders (shoulder). Scott may have earned a few more snaps with his play last week, but he'll still be operating far behind Sanders and Jordan Howard. Scott makes for a decent end-of-bench stash just in case Sanders aggravates his shoulder injury and misses time, but Scott shouldn't be in your starting lineup this week.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott scored the first touchdown of his NFL career in a Week 8 win over the Buffalo Bills. Scott ran the ball five times, gaining just six yards but running in a four yard score in the third quarter. Scott didn't do much with his other carries, but he looked elusive and strong in his touchdown run. Scott could get a bit more play if Miles Sanders (shoulder) is forced to miss any time.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott tallied seven carries in Week 7, gaining 32 yards. He also caught his lone target, picking up five more yards. Scott actually ended up with just one touch less than Miles Sanders. With the Eagles taking on a similarly tough Bills Defense in Week 8, Scott won't be worth much in most fantasy formats, but the Eagles backfield has certainly become one worth keeping an eye on going forward.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott carried the ball four times in Week 6, gaining 30 yards. Scott was just elevated to the active roster from the practice squad this week, to take the place of Corey Clement (shoulder) on the running back depth chart. Scott will serve mostly in a complementary role on offense while spending most of his time on special teams, but if Miles Sanders keeps showing nothing in the running game, Scott could suddenly see himself elevated even further in the game plan.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Corey Clement (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 11. The team also signed practice squad RB Boston Scott to their 53-man roster.
