2022 Fantasy Outlook
Scott had an unusual, but productive, 2021 season. The 2018 sixth-round pick's small stature and current status as an Eagle has drawn Darren Sproles comparisons, but Scott was barely used as a receiving option last year, seeing only 16 targets in 16 games. Instead, he emerged as an unlikely goal-line threat, scoring seven TDs from inside the 5-yard line as defenders simply had a hard time finding him before he knifed through traffic and into the end zone. The Louisiana Tech product does have good speed in addition to surprising power for his size, but passing-down work was spread fairly evenly between Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell and Scott, giving the veteran few opportunities to show those traits in the open field. Both Sanders and Gainwell are back in 2022, making for another crowded committee in Philadelphia without clearly defined roles for the backups. Scott isn't likely to produce consistently unless Sanders and/or Gainwell misses a significant stretch of time. Read Past Outlooks

January 8, 2023
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.

2018
After bursting onto the scene late in 2019, Scott played all 16 games last year and posted solid numbers while backing up Miles Sanders, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. Scott didn't see double-digit carries until Week 7, however, and only saw that kind of volume two more times the rest of the season. Former Eagles coach Doug Pederson is now gone, but new head coach Nick Sirianni and offensive coordinator Shane Steichen seem more likely to lean on Sanders than spread out the workload, given their respective track records with the Colts and Chargers. Scott also faces plenty of competition in a deep RB group, though his speed and power in a compact 5-6 frame still make him the favorite for the No. 2 spot. Barring a wave of injuries to thin the herd, it's hard to see Scott getting enough touches to make an impact.
A sixth-round pick by the Saints in 2018, Scott wound up with the Eagles later that season but didn't get an offensive snap as a rookie, and after failing to crack the 53-man roster in camp last year, he bided his time on the practice squad until injuries opened a spot. Even after being activated, he didn't have a meaningful role until Week 14, when he turned 16 touches into 128 yards and a touchdown. Scott, while undersized, offers some intriguing tools as a running back. He's densely built at 5-6, 203, and he ran 4.40 40-yard dash at his pro day in 2018. He's also useful in the passing game, as evidenced by 24 receptions and one drop on 26 targets last season. If that list of assets sounds familiar, it might be because Darren Sproles turned them into a long, productive career. The final six seasons of that career were spent in Philadelphia, where Doug Pederson has found use for a wide variety of running backs while favoring a committee approach. Scott has a long way to go to become the next Sproles, of course, but with the Eagles doing little in the offseason to bolster their depth chart, the 25-year-old could enter training camp as the No. 2 option behind Miles Sanders.
The Saints selected Scott in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Although the Louisiana Tech product stands at just 5-7, he was a state powerlifting champion in high school and is listed at a sturdy 203 pounds. Scott was a strong, elusive runner in college and showcased his NFL-quality athleticism by logging a 4.4 40-yard dash, 38.5-inch vertical and 10.82 agility score at the Louisiana Tech pro day. Scott could play a role in the Saints offense early on this season, as Alvin Kamara's backup while Mark Ingram serves a four-game suspension to begin the year.
