Miles Sanders Active Against Vikings

Sunday, October 1, 12:06 PM

Carolina Panthers running back Miles Sanders (groin), who was questionable to play in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, is officially active on Sunday. Sanders was limited on Wednesday and Thursday before not practicing on Friday. Raheem Blackshear is also a healthy scratch for this one, so it doesn't appear that Sanders' groin injury is of much concern. They will continue to roll with Sanders and Chuba Hubbard in their backfield, and Carolina could lean more heavily on their ground game this weekend with the return of rookie quarterback Bryce Young, who missed the Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks due to an ankle injury. Sanders has a great matchup and will be in play as an RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Travis Etienne News

Travis Etienne Jr. A Trusted RB1 vs. Falcons

Friday, September 29, 3:23 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. heads into a Week 4 clash with the Atlanta Falcons. The former first-round pick has been dependable to start the year with two top-10 RB weekly finishes, one of them without even scoring a touchdown. Volume has been king for Etienne, as he has seen an average of 20 opportunities per game through three weeks. Rookie Tank Bigsby is being utilized around the goal line, but Etienne is the dominant workhorse between the 10s commanding a lions' share of the snaps. With the offense struggling mightily last week, Etienne was heavily leaned on to carry the unit. The Atlanta Falcons have been stout against the run in '23, but with how featured Etienne has been this year, he should produce enough to warrant back-end RB1 status yet again.
