Miles Sanders believers have been absolutely tortured throughout the young running back's career, but his 2019 and 2020 seasons were nothing in comparison to the absolute brutality that was his 2021 season. Sanders suffered through multiple injuries and while he touched the ball 163 times and averaged nearly 5.6 yards per touch, he somehow failed to score a single touchdown. He wasn't a huge touchdown producer over his first two seasons, but at times it felt like he was flat out allergic to the end zone in 2021. What made things even worse is that the Eagles scored a whopping 25 rushing touchdowns on the season. Sure, 10 of them were from quarterback Jalen Hurts, but that still left 15 touchdowns that went to other Philadelphia running backs, including Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and even the corpse of Jordan Howard.

It'd be easy to look at those numbers and just write off Sanders as a "no thanks" due to lack of touchdown upside, but things might be a little more complicated than that. While he certainly was nothing short of a disappointment in 2021, the reality is that Sanders was also objectively unlucky in his failure to get into the end zone. Sanders had scored six touchdowns in each of his first two seasons and if he was able to score even that many times in 2021, he would've jumped up all the way from RB43 on the season to RB28. Consider that he also missed a number of games entirely due to injury and was knocked out early of a couple more, and it's easy to tell yourself a story of how Sanders could've been a top-15 back with just a little bit of luck.

As it is, Sanders is being drafted outside of the top-24 of his position and it's hard not to believe that this is closer to his floor than it is his ceiling. The running back position is extremely volatile this season, especially outside the top 10, and Sanders is one of the few backs who has legitimate upside as a three-down back in an improving offense with good blocking in front of him. Don't sleep on him in your drafts, especially if you're able to land him as an RB3 on your roster.
