Boston Scott Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Scott averaged 6.3 carries, 5.5 targets and 13.5 PPR points in 4 games as the Eagles’ #2 RB behind Miles Sanders late last season.
  • He’s in line to operate as the #2 RB in 2020.
  • But additions to Philly’s WR corps mean Scott is unlikely to average 5.5 targets per game again.


2019 in review

Injuries to Eagles RBs thrust Scott into a significant role late last season. After totaling just 23 carries and 1 catch through 12 games, he handled 44 carries and 26 catches over the final 5 (including playoffs).

Now, his biggest workload — 19 carries and 6 targets — came in Week 17 after Miles Sanders exited in the 1st half with a sprained ankle. In the other 4 games, Scott averaged 6.3 carries and 5.5 catches.

And he was good with those opportunities. Scott ripped off 4.9 yards per carry. And while he averaged just 6.3 yards per catch, he hauled in every single one of his 22 targets. He ranked 2nd in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades and 3rd in yards per route run among 24 RBs with 10+ targets in those 4 weeks. Scott ranked a decent 33rd among 50 qualifying RBs in PFF’s rushing grades.

Most importantly, he averaged 13.5 PPR points across those 4 games. That mark would have landed him 23rd among RBs on the season.


2020 outlook

Scott might be looking at a similar role in 2020. The Eagles let Jordan Howard walk in free agency and only added undrafted rookie Michael Warren to the backfield. That has Scott looking like the favorite for #2 duties behind Miles Sanders.

That doesn’t mean we’re expecting him to garner 5.5 targets per game again, though. WRs Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor were all out during those 4 aforementioned games. Agholor is now in Las Vegas and Jeffery is iffy for Week 1 after December Lisfranc surgery. But the Eagles added rookies Jalen Reagor, John Hightower and Quez Watkins, plus veteran Marquise Goodwin, to Jackson, J.J. Arcega-…
