Scott rushed 61 times for 245 yards and five touchdowns while adding 24 catches on 26 targets for 204 yards in 11 regular-season games in 2019.
EDGE Analysis
Scott started the year buried on the depth chart but contributed solidly once he got the opportunity. With Darren Sproles (hip) and Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, Scott got the opportunity to run what was essentially the "Sproles role" with 176 rushing yards on 44 attempts and 26 catches on 28 targets for 222 receiving yards over the Eagles' last five games, including their wild-card loss. The 24-year-old has likely earned a similar role on the team next season with Sproles headed for retirement.

Scott carried the ball 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns and caught four of six targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.
EDGE Analysis
Miles Sanders left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury and did not return, but even with Jordan Howard back in the lineup, it was Scott who stepped up and led the team in both rushing and receiving yards while scoring three red-zone TDs in the second half as the Eagles broke the game open. With the NFC East title now in hand and a wild-card battle against the Seahawks ahead next weekend, Scott could again have a significant role in the offense if Sanders isn't 100 percent.

Coach Doug Pederson said Thursday that Scott has earned the chance to maintain a role in the Eagles' offensive game plan, even with fellow back Jordan Howard (shoulder) expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
EDGE Analysis
While Howard has been sidelined for the past six games, Scott has stepped in as the top complement to Miles Sanders, who ascended to the No. 1 spot on the depth chart. Over that stretch, Scott has averaged a healthy 4.7 yards per carry while also shining as a pass catcher, hauling in all 19 of his targets for 115 yards. Howard's return won't have much affect on the distribution of passing-down work between Sanders and Scott, but how the carries are divvied up between the trio is less certain. At any rate, Scott's fantasy utility looks like it could be capped while he ranks as the second or third option in what may prove to be a three-man backfield committee.

Scott rushed three times for 12 yards and caught all six of his targets for seven yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over Dallas.
EDGE Analysis
Scott got out-touched again by Miles Sanders, 26-9, but the Louisiana Tech product caught enough balls to matter in PPR leagues. Sanders similarly out-snapped Scott, 59-20, on offense. Scott's role could be reduced if Jordan Howard (shoulder) is able to return as the Eagles look to lock down the NFC East in Week 17 against the Giants.

Scott rushed six times for 26 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 37-27 win over Washington.
EDGE Analysis
Scott delivered a nice PPR performance, but he played second fiddle to Miles Sanders, who turned 19 carries and six catches into 172 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. Until Jordan Howard (shoulder) returns, Scott should continue to see a handful of touches per game in a change-of-pace role behind Sanders.

Scott rushed 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-17 overtime win over the Giants. He also caught all six of his targets for 69 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Scott saw his role increased after starting tailback Miles Sanders was forced to exit while dealing with cramps. Although Sanders would ultimately return to the action, Scott made the most of his newfound opportunity, scoring a two-yard touchdown to close the third quarter and popping big plays in both the running and passing games. In the end, the 2018 sixth-rounder topped 100 scrimmage yards for the first time, helping the Eagles to a crucial victory along the way. Such an accomplishment could very well earn Scott some extra snaps in Week 15 versus the Redskins even with Sanders likely to be fully healthy then.

Scott played no offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.
EDGE Analysis
Scott played exclusively on special teams in this one, seeing seven snaps there. With Jordan Howard (shoulder) out, it was the Miles Sanders show for Philadelphia.

Scott played just three offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
EDGE Analysis
Even with a good number of offensive weapons missing, Scott didn't see a carry or a target. He did get two kick returns, returning them for 45 total yards. It seems that will be his primary role going forward.

Scott carried the ball seven times for 26 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England.
EDGE Analysis
Scott tied his season-high in carries but wasn't able to do much with them. He started alongside Miles Sanders but saw just 14 offensive snaps compared to 64 for Sanders. The 24-year-old also handled punt and kick returns for the Eagles. With Darren Sproles (quad) out for the season and Jordan Howard's shoulder ailing, Scott could see a similar role Week 13 against Seattle, even with the team's recent addition of Jay Ajayi.

Scott played just seven special-teams snaps and none on offense in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.
EDGE Analysis
As expected, Scott moved back a to a distant fourth on the depth chart with the return of Darren Sproles, who only played 10 offensive snaps himself. Injury will have to strike again before the former sixth-round pick gets another crack in the Eagles' backfield.
