Boston Scott Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Scott ranked just 70th in Pro Football Focus rushing grade among 142 RBs in 2020. That still beat Kerryon Johnson (103rd) and Jordan Howard (138th), competitors for 2021 playing time.
  • He fared better in receiving grade, checking in 38th among 154 targeted backs. That demolished Miles Sanders’ grade (68.1 vs. 33.9; 148th for Sanders).
  • The Eagles kept Scott around this season on a 1-year exclusive-rights free-agent tender, worth $920,000.
  • Philly also drafted Kenneth Gainwell in Round 5, picked Kerryon Johnson up off waivers and retained Jordan Howard after picking him up late last season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Philly has added some names to its backfield within the past year but hasn’t done much to bulk up the talent. Scott hasn’t wowed anyone but performed solidly as the #2 RB in 2020. He should face tougher role competition at least from Kenneth Gainwell this summer -- and perhaps throughout the season. There’s still a chance Scott hits September as Miles Sanders’ top backup, but don’t count on that in early drafts. Either way, he’s a low-value fantasy backup.
