Gets into end zone Sunday

Scott carried the ball nine times for a season-high 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Giants.

Analysis: The running back scored Philadelphia's only TD of the game on an eight-yard run in the first quarter and wound up leading the team in rushing yards, as with the Eagles ahead 16-0 at the half, they had little incentive to give Miles Sanders a heavy workload. Scott wraps up the regular season with 217 rushing yards and three touchdowns over 15 games in a depth role, and his usage isn't likely to change in the playoffs.

Two carries in loss

Scott rushed twice for six yards in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Scott made a minimal impact in a game in which the Eagles' offense fell flat as a unit, though his two carries were two more than he'd managed in either of the previous two weeks. He also out-snapped fellow depth running back Kenneth Gainwell by a 18-15 margin and tied him in touches. That could have made Scott an interesting Week 18 play had the Eagles manage to secure a first-round bye this week, allowing them to rest their starters for the regular-season finale, but the loss means that Miles Sanders will remain the only Philadelphia running back worth considering.

Barely sees field

Scott did not receive a touch in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Analysis: Scott recorded a season-high seven touches in each of the previous two weeks, but he saw the field for just four offensive snaps this time around. He did at least make some impact on the game, as his 58-yard kickoff return to open the second half led to a quick touchdown. Fellow depth running back Kenneth Gainwell was on the field for 29 offensive snaps, which means he's probably the guy to get for those speculating that Miles Sanders could be rested in Week 18.

Reaches end zone

Scott rushed six times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-22 win over the Giants. He also caught one pass for four yards.

Analysis: Scott found the end zone for the second time this season. His three-yard rush late in the fourth quarter stretched the Eagles' lead to 34 points. While he did wind up with a season-high seven touches for the second consecutive week, five of those came with the game well out of reach in the fourth quarter.

Six carries and one catch

Scott carried the ball six times for 16 yards and caught one pass for five more yards in Sunday's big win over the Titans.

Analysis: Scott had just four fewer carries and eight fewer yards than starting running back Miles Sanders, but that's primarily thanks to the fact that the Eagles had so much success in the passing game that they didn't need to do much on the ground. Scott has now reached seven touches twice this season but has yet to receive more than that.

Minor role in big ground game

Scott carried the ball three times for 24 yards in Sunday's 40-33 win over the Packers.

Analysis: The Eagles rushed 49 times for 363 yards on the day, but with 300 of those yards being gained by Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders, little was left for Scott to do. All three of his carries came in the fourth quarter. One of those rushing attempts led to a 19-yard gain, a season-high for Scott, but the fact that he was largely a non-factor despite his team's big day on the ground further reinforces the fact that he's at least one injury away from fantasy relevance.

Touches ball five times

Scott carried the ball three times for eight yards and caught two passes for four more yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Analysis: Scott received 13 offensive snaps compared to 11 for Kenneth Gainwell and out-touched his fellow running back by a five to one margin, though neither provided much fantasy value. If Scott starts to consistently see the field more frequently than Gainwell, he'd become the player more useful to roster as cover for a Miles Sanders injury, but he's gained a total of just 90 yards this season and found the end zone just once, so he's a long way from fantasy relevance at the moment.

Receives one carry

Scott rushed once for five yards in Monday's Week 10 loss to Washington.

Analysis: The Eagles were limited to just 50 offensive snaps as the Commanders dominated time of possession. Stott was on the field for just five of those snaps and made a minimal impression.

Nov 15, 2022 4:53 PM EST

Plays minimal role

Scott carried the ball once for five yards in Thursday's win against the Texans.

Analysis: Scott carried the ball a season-high seven times in Week 8 but saw his role evaporate almost entirely in Week 9. He saw the field for just five offensive steps, making him the clear third choice behind Miles Sanders (42 snaps) and Kenneth Gainwell (18 snaps).

Nov 4, 2022 1:11 PM EST

Season-high seven carries

Scott gained 21 yards on seven carries in Sunday's win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Scott's seven carries represented a new season high, but that was entirely the product of some garbage-time action in a game the undefeated Eagles won by 22 points. All of his touches came in the fourth quarter with Gardner Minshew under center to close out a comfortable victory. Scott remains unlikely to fill a fantasy-relevant role unless starting running back Miles Sanders gets hurt.

Nov 1, 2022 2:44 PM EST

Carries ball six times

Scott rushed for 16 yards on a season-high six carries in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Scott outcarried fellow depth running back Kenneth Gainwell six to five, carrying the ball more than either back had gotten the chance to in any previous game. That still added up to a very modest overall performance, however, and it's unlikely he makes a much larger impact on future games if he continues to see the field for just 10 snaps like he did against Dallas.

Ready to roll

Scott (ribs) isn't listed on the Week 6 injury report ahead of a matchup with the Cowboys on Sunday.

Analysis: With Scott out the past two weeks, Miles Sanders played 67 and 74 percent of snaps on offense, up from 52-59 percent the first three weeks. In fact, Sanders' snap share has grown slightly larger with each passing week this year, though the trend could change Sunday if both Scott and Kenneth Gainwell (LP - ribs) are available.

Oct 12, 2022 1:44 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Scott (ribs) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Sage Hurley of the Eagles' official site reports.

Analysis: With Scott still out this week, Kenneth Gainwell and Trey Sermon are in line to continue to log complementary snaps behind top back Miles Sanders, who racked up 27 carries in the Eagles' Week 4 win over the Jaguars.

Oct 9, 2022 12:03 PM EST

Questionable to face Cardinals

Scott (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Arizona.

Analysis: Scott's status is mostly of fantasy interest insofar as it relates to Miles Sanders' value. With Scott out last week, Sanders had career highs for carries and rushing yards in a win over the Jaguars, while Kenneth Gainwell merely handled his usual role off the bench. Sanders now has a firm grip on the lead role, but he could lose some snaps if Scott avoids the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oct 7, 2022 1:05 PM EST

Logs another limited session

Scott (rib) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Scott has now opened the week with consecutive limited sessions, after he missed Sunday's 29-21 victory over the Jaguars with a rib injury he presumably picked up in Week 3 against Washington. The 27-year-old running back's participation in Friday's practice should provide additional clarity regarding his availability against Arizona this weekend, but Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell would be in line to receive additional touches should Scott eventually be ruled out Sunday.

Oct 6, 2022 2:56 PM EST

Returns to practice

Scott (ribs) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant.

Analysis: This seemingly gives Scott at least a shot to return for Sunday's game in Arizona, after his absence from the Week 4 win over Jacksonville helped Miles Sanders set career highs for carries (27) and rushing yards (134). Kenneth Gainwell more or less handled his usual role, in terms of both snap share and touches, but it is possible he gets somewhat more involved if Scott misses another game.

Oct 5, 2022 1:55 PM EST

Won't suit up Sunday

Scott (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: After missing all three practices this week due to a rib injury, Scott unsurprisingly won't be available to Philly's offense Week 4. While Miles Sanders has been the team's unquestioned No. 1 running back this season, the second and third options have received snaps and touches. Kenneth Gainwell figures to remain the No. 2 on Sunday, with Trey Sermon active for the first time as an Eagle.

Sep 30, 2022 1:23 PM EST

Unlikely to play Sunday

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Friday that Scott (ribs) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

Analysis: Scott didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday due to a rib issue that he presumably picked up in the team's Week 3 win over Washington and probably won't be available for Week 4. In his likely absence, Trey Sermon is expected to make his Eagles debut as the third-string RB behind Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell.

Sep 30, 2022 7:38 AM EST

Another DNP on Thursday

Scott (rib) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Scott is a distant third in terms of offensive snaps (36) behind Miles Sanders (112) and Kenneth Gainwell (60) through three games. While Scott has nearly matched Gainwell in touches, 11-13, the former now is in danger of sitting out Week 4 entirely. Scott at least has Friday's practice to make his presence felt, but if he's inactive Sunday against the Jaguars, Trey Sermon likely will be available as the Eagles' third running back.

Sep 29, 2022 2:41 PM EST

No practice Wednesday

Scott (ribs) didn't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Scott played a season-low seven snaps during the team's Week 3 win over Washington, and he presumably picked up a rib injury as well. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but his potential absence wouldn't make too much of an impact as Kenneth Gainwell has solidified himself as the top backup behind Miles Sanders.
