Miles Sanders: Thrives in return to action

Sanders (ankle) rushed 16 times for 94 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Eagles' 40-29 win over the Eagles on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.

Analysis: The turnover was a blemish, but Sanders otherwise provided his most encouraging performance of the season under circumstances replete with irony. After receiving plenty of criticism early in the season for Sanders' sparse usage on the ground, head coach Nick Sirianni opted to give the third-year back his heaviest workload of the campaign against a defense that came in ranked as the league's toughest on a yards-per-game basis against the run, and in Sanders' first game back from a three-game absence to boot. Moreover, Sanders then parlayed that opportunity into a season-high tally in rushing yards, certainly giving fantasy managers who stuck with him through his IR stint a welcome surprise. A Week 12 road matchup against the Giants shapes up as the Sanders' first opportunity to build on what might be a season-changing performance for him.
