2. Scott finishes with double-digit touchdowns

One can only imagine how different things would have played out for Philadelphia towards the end of last season if Scott didn’t make the kind of impact he did, including a three-touchdown performance in a key win over the New York Giants.

Thanks to Scott’s surprise impact, the former Louisiana Tech star now appears to have a significant role in the backfield for the Eagles as the No. 2 running back entering the 2020 season, although it will be up to him to hang on to the gig once training camp begins.

The good news for Scott is last season already made it clear just how valuable he can be for the Eagles on offense if the opportunities are there, especially if the running back can be major threat in the end zone.

After finishing with five touchdowns last season following an increase in playing time down the stretch, Scott should be able to at least double that total with ease in 2020 as long as he manages to stay healthy.

Sanders will rightfully receive a major bulk of the carries on offense, but chances are Scott will be just as thrilled over the opportunities presented to him each week now that he’s made a name for himself in Philadelphia.
