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.
The Philadelphia Eagles added free-agents QB Kyle Lauletta (Giants), WR Greg Ward, WR Marcus Green (Falcons), TE Alex Ellis, TE Joshua Perkins, DT Bruce Hector, OG Sua Opeta, RB Boston Scott and LB Alex Singleton to their practice squad Sunday, Sept. 1.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Alex Ellis, DT Treyvon Hester, OG Sua Opeta, TE Joshua Perkins, RB Boston Scott, QB Clayton Thorson, OT Brett Toth and WR Greg Ward Jr. were waived Saturday, Aug. 31. The team also released OG Stefen Wisniewski and placed CB Jalen Mills (foot) on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott had seven carries for 43 yards and a touchdown in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott led the backfield in carries, yards, and touchdowns on Thursday. He ran the ball seven times, gaining 43 yards and scoring a touchdown. Scott is a possibility for the last running back spot in Philly, but he still has a few weeks to prove that he deserves a 53-man spot. Scott would need multiple injuries ahead of him in order to return fantasy value in 2019.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott "might actually be the front-runner" for the final spot on the Eagles running back depth chart. Jordan Howard, Corey Clement, and rookie Miles Sanders are all locks assuming health, so Scott, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams could all be competing for one final spot. Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia believes that Scott has "a much more complementary collection of skills" including his ability to play on special teams. Scott could be interesting if given a chance to play on offense, but it would likely take two injuries ahead of him for him to earn any significant offensive snaps.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott might be the front runner for the final running back spot on the roster. He is one of the few backs on the roster with punt return experience.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott has impressed assistant coach and running backs coach Duce Staley. 'I'm very high on Boston. Being able to see him in OTAs, I'm excited. I'm excited about quick he is, the way he picks up the offense. He does look like a little (Darren Sproles) there at times. But I tell you, he's working hard, he's dedicated. He's watching film,' Staley said.
Fantasy Spin: Scott has an uphill climb for regular touches in the backfield with the likes of Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and others. At this point he isn't someone to draft, but he is worth monitoring in case the team trades a player or injuries occur.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson mentioned running back Boston Scott as a Darren Sproles replacement because of his skill set. Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood and Scott could be competing for one spot behind Jordan Howard, rookie Miles Sanders and Corey Clement. A sixth-round pick in 2018, Scott was active in only two games as a rookie and didn't touch the ball at all. He's more effective catching the ball out of the backfield, though, so he could make the team based on that skill set. However, he'll be nothing more than a very deep sleeper in PPR leagues if he's on the final roster in a crowded backfield.
Philadelphia Eagles RBs Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Boston Scott and Donnel Pumphrey are likely competing for the team's fourth and final backfield spot, in the opinion of NJ.com's Mike Kaye. The three likely locks are RBs Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders and Corey Clement.
