Maybe a top 15 RB in non-PPR? Dallas D is better than Washington, but Dallas D also seems a little banged up right now.

Dallas RUn D has been decent, but I think Sanders will do fairly well. Who are you debating starting him against?

Howard isn't even a factor. He hasn't done much when he's been in there and has been hurt forever. Sanders just came off of his biggest game and they're going to keep feeding him the ball

Hmm, they haven't been bad either. I'd probably roll Sanders.

It’s going to be impossible to bench Sanders after last week and it’s going to be impossible for him to duplicate that. Resetting expectations to 125 total yards and a TD which is probably too high but the Cowboys LBs are banged up so maybe not

I still plan on benching in favor of carson/chubb for standard.

Impossible unless you have two top 8 options

Coach Doug Pederson said Jordan Howard (shoulder) remains "status quo."
In other words, nothing has changed, and Howard has yet to be cleared for contact. He remains day to day, as he has been for the past month. It doesn't sound like Howard will play Week 16 against the Cowboys, leaving another week for Miles Sanders as a borderline RB1/2 and Boston Scott usable as a FLEX in fantasy finals week.

As a Sanders owner, this is exactly what I wanted to hear

But damn, Jordan Howard must have suffered a serious collarbone injury

I'd feel confident starting him either way at this point, but no Howard is definitely a good thing.

Isn't a bone injury. It's a stinger - that's nerve.

Hopefully Sanders was able to help others out. He really stepped up in the fantasy playoffs

Yup but Howard is. I threat to sanders. He’ll spell him but that’s about it.
