Nothing more than a guess but - "Zach Berman of The Athletic expects Jay Ajayi to have a "notable role" Week 12 against the Seahawks."
Obviously they don't want to run Sanders as an every down player which actually probably boosts his fantasy value.
Jordan Howard (shoulder) has still not been cleared for contact.
Coach Doug Pederson has featured Miles Sanders to the tune of an 85% snap rate or higher in each of the past three games. Previously, no RB had managed to surpass even 80% in a single game under Pederson since he took over in 2016. It's unclear just how involved Howard would be in the offense if healthy enough to return. Treat Sanders as a mid-tier RB2 if Howard remains sidelined and an upside RB3 if not.

I own both and luckily have a bye but if I didn't, that's where I'd go
Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP reports there has been "no change" in Jordan Howard's status.
Still feeling the effects of a pinched nerve in his shoulder, Howard has yet to be cleared for contact and appears headed for his fourth straight absence. Even taking into account Boston Scott's increased role Monday night, fantasy owners can safely go back to the Miles Sanders well Sunday in Washington. Given all the Eagles' injuries at receiver (JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis are their projected starters), don't be surprised if Sanders pushes for 20-plus touches in a great matchup. He's very much in the RB2 discussion
