2021 Fantasy Outlook
After bursting onto the scene late in 2019, Scott played all 16 games last year and posted solid numbers while backing up Miles Sanders, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. Scott didn't see double-digit carries until Week 7, however, and only saw that kind of volume two more times the rest of the season. Former Eagles coach Doug Pederson is now gone, but new head coach Nick Sirianni and offensive coordinator Shane Steichen seem more likely to lean on Sanders than spread out the workload, given their respective track records with the Colts and Chargers. Scott also faces plenty of competition in a deep RB group, though his speed and power in a compact 5-6 frame still make him the favorite for the No. 2 spot. Barring a wave of injuries to thin the herd, it's hard to see Scott getting enough touches to make an impact. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The 2018 sixth-round pick has yet to play an offensive snap this season as Kenneth Gainwell has assumed all of the backup work behind Miles Sanders. Scott has played exclusively on special teams to this point.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
A sixth-round pick by the Saints in 2018, Scott wound up with the Eagles later that season but didn't get an offensive snap as a rookie, and after failing to crack the 53-man roster in camp last year, he bided his time on the practice squad until injuries opened a spot. Even after being activated, he didn't have a meaningful role until Week 14, when he turned 16 touches into 128 yards and a touchdown. Scott, while undersized, offers some intriguing tools as a running back. He's densely built at 5-6, 203, and he ran 4.40 40-yard dash at his pro day in 2018. He's also useful in the passing game, as evidenced by 24 receptions and one drop on 26 targets last season. If that list of assets sounds familiar, it might be because Darren Sproles turned them into a long, productive career. The final six seasons of that career were spent in Philadelphia, where Doug Pederson has found use for a wide variety of running backs while favoring a committee approach. Scott has a long way to go to become the next Sproles, of course, but with the Eagles doing little in the offseason to bolster their depth chart, the 25-year-old could enter training camp as the No. 2 option behind Miles Sanders.
The Saints selected Scott in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Although the Louisiana Tech product stands at just 5-7, he was a state powerlifting champion in high school and is listed at a sturdy 203 pounds. Scott was a strong, elusive runner in college and showcased his NFL-quality athleticism by logging a 4.4 40-yard dash, 38.5-inch vertical and 10.82 agility score at the Louisiana Tech pro day. Scott could play a role in the Saints offense early on this season, as Alvin Kamara's backup while Mark Ingram serves a four-game suspension to begin the year.
