Scott saw his playing time really amp up as the season progressed last year, getting a lot of chances as a top pass-catching back for the Eagles. He had six or more receptions three of the last four games of the season. Scott played 11 games but managed 449 total yards and 24 re-ceptions. He should have a role in the offense from day one this year, getting some weekly chances to catch and run the ball in an Eagles offense that likes to rotate backs. Scott is a very small back. He might be the shortest back in the game right now. He has top speed and moves in space, though. Scott catches the ball well and is a playmaker. His lack of size gives him du-rability concerns. Plus, he is not a great inside runner because of his size.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Scott is worth a late-round look. He is going to get his catches and has some weekly total yard potential. Expect around 40 receptions and 600 total yards for Scott.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott came out of relative obscurity to post a solid second half in the 2019 season. The second-year back rushed 61 times for 245 yards and five touchdowns while adding 24 receptions for 204 yards. While it is possible that the Eagles add to their collection of running backs at some point during the offseason, for now Scott is the No. 2 RB behind starter Miles Sanders. Scott has legitimate pass-catching ability and is an explosive player who will have value in deeper PPR leagues and would instantly become an RB2 in fantasy if an injury were to befall Sanders. Scott is currently being drafted around pick No. 159 in PPR leagues, making him a quality target for owners who employ a zero-RB draft strategy and a must-have handcuff for those who spend an early-round pick on Sanders.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott has a good chance to make the final roster because of his solid play at the end of the 2019 season, in the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. The Eagles are expected to add another running back, but Scott could be a leading candidate for the No. 3 running back job.
Fantasy Spin: Scott probably will only see limited touches this season since Miles Sanders will receive most of the work and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Boston Scott could be in store for a breakthrough 2020 season, his third in the NFL, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Zangaro says Scott should be the No. 2 option behind Miles Sanders, even if the Eagles add a veteran running back late in free agency.
Fantasy Spin: Scott appeared in 11 games last season and ran for 245 yards and five touchdowns on 61 carries. He added 204 receiving yards while catching 24 of 26 targets. His breakout game was a three-touchdown performance against the New York Giants in Week 17 as he totaled 138 yards from scrimmage. Sanders is the clear No. 1 option in Philly and a low-end RB1 target, but Scott could be had in the later rounds as a high-upside handcuff in deeper leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott is expected to compete for an offensive role in training camp instead of just competing for a roster spot. Miles Sanders will be the team's lead back in 2020, but even if the team adds a veteran backup, Scott is expected to compete for a role in Philly. The coaching staff truly believes that Scott's production down the stretch last year when Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles were injured wasn't a fluke. The 25-year-old finished with 61 carries for 245 yards (4.0 yards per carry) and five touchdowns on the ground, adding 24 receptions for 204 yards through the air. Scott should have late-round appeal in deep PPR leagues, especially if the Eagles don't add another running back before the season.
