Miles Sanders and Peloton Need to Focus on Doing one or two Things Really Well

Bill Enright

Too often rookie running backs enter the NFL and try to be great at too many things which results in being not very good in anything. The same is happening with Peloton which just launched its IPO.

New Stocks and New Players: The Comparison between Rookies and IPOs

The Eagles and fantasy football players have high expectations for rookie running back Miles Sanders. The former Penn State rusher was selected in the second round (53rd Overall) in the 2019 NFL Draft and his Average Draft Position in fantasy drafts was in the late 5th Round. Sanders' has flashed his talent at times but for the most part, he's been underwhelming to start his career. He's yet to score a touchdown, fumbled twice, and his four game rushing yards average is just 44 yards. Die hard Eagles fan and fantasy football manager, Jim Cramer is already fed up with Sanders' lack of production.

Meanwhile, Peloton finally launched its long anticipated IPO.  As Katherine Ross points out, instead of listing just one or two descriptors, Pelton listed TEN. It seems the trendy bike and workout subscription service hasn't narrowed in on its identity and the Eagles rusher is suffering from the same crisis. 

Sanders and Peloton need to figure out what they can be great at and focus on it. In the case of Sanders,  he needs stop stop bouncing everything outside the tackles and find his grove as an inside runner. Of course holding onto the ball instead of putting it on the carpet would give the coaching staff a lot more confidence in him as well.

Do you have the Philly rookie on any of your fantasy football teams? Think he can turn his season around as we head into October? Let us know in the comments.

Fumbles have been an issue. I still think 2020 is the breakout season.

Jordan Howard looked pretty good vs. Packers

I think he's someone you hold on to and hope that he pays off later in the season. Like DesertHeat said he looks good he just needs some more opportunities. At the same time though he needs to make the most of the opportunities he's had. The fumbles certainly do not help his case for getting more touches.

Patience will pay off come fantasy playoff time.

He looked good last night. He's just not getting a ton of touches.
