Miles Sanders regressing as pass-catcher for Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders has regressed as a pass-catcher since his rookie season, writes Bo Wulf of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Wulf says Sanders has continued "to fight the ball at times" as a pass-catcher at training camp. "If anything is going to limit Sanders’ workload, it’s his receiving ability, which has regressed since a standout rookie year." In terms of rushing the football, Wulf believes Sanders might be headed for a "monster year," but it sounds like Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott could take away some playing time when the Eagles are in throwing situations.

Sanders is currently the RB28 in numberFire's preseason rankings. Our models project him for 194.3 carries for 919.2 yards and 5.80 touchdowns, with 28.0 catches (40.4 targets) for 180.6 yards and 1.67 touchdowns.
