2. Miles Sanders leads the team in rushing
Jordan Howard is listed as the No. 1 back for the Eagles on the depth chart. While Miles Sanders, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles will all get carries, Miles Sanders could realistically separate himself from the pack as early as week one.
Doug Pederson already said it earlier in the week — he won’t hold rookies such as Miles Sanders and JJ Arcega-Whiteside back. Over the summer, Sanders proved to be the Eales most useful and talented all-around back. And he only got better as time went on.
Will Sanders surpass 100 yards? Well, I wouldn’t take it too far. Let’s go with around 80 yards for the first week. Also, it will be good to see him potentially get some reps on passing downs as well to see what he offers in the air as well. There will only be a couple of rookie debuts for the Eagles on Sunday, but Sanders’ is by far the most exciting one.
