Come Close to a Pro Bowl Nod

It won’t be easy to earn a Pro Bowl considering the backs in the NFC that earned this honor included Ezekiel Elliot, Saquon Barkley, and Todd Gurley. However, Miles Sanders should set that as his bar to achieve.

Despite not being a regular starter right out of the gate, Sanders exceeded over 1,500 all-purpose yards while averaging 10.2 yards per reception and 4.6 yards per carry,

Something to keep in mind, Sanders didn’t play at least 50% of the Eagles’ snaps until late in the season and still put up big numbers. In fact, it wasn’t until Week 11 that he hit that mark, per Warren Sharp.

If the Eagles do indeed give Sanders expanded opportunity in their offense in 2020, he will take a strong overall leap forward. It may not be enough to outright land a Pro Bowl nod, but entering the conversation should be a goal.
