Kevin Hanson joins SI for the 2019 season. His fantasy rankings have placed him in the Top 20 in each of the past two seasons among all the industry experts tracked by FantasyPros.com, and he has been in the Top 25 in six of the past eight years.

Check out more of Kevin’s rankings: QB, WR, TE, kicker, defense and flex.

RB Start of the Week: Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles (at MIA)

Sanders has yet to exceed 15 touches, which is exactly what he had last week against the Seahawks. The rookie from Penn State rushed for 63 yards on 12 carries (5.3 YPC) and added three receptions for 23 yards on five targets. In his past seven games, Sanders has at least three receptions six times.

The Dolphins have surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. In addition, the Eagles are nearly double-digit favorites (-9.5) and have the third-highest implied total (27.25) this week, so Sanders and the team’s backs should benefit from a positive game script.

Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game and Sanders has played more than 80 percent of the team’s offensive snaps in the past two games without Howard.

RB Sit of the Week: Carlos Hyde, Houston Texans (vs. NE)

Hyde is averaging 15.8 rush attempts per game and he’s on pace for his first-ever 1,000-yard rushing season. That said, Hyde has been a non-factor in the passing game with no receptions in his past five outings.

The Patriots have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Given that bye weeks are over and his difficult matchup this week, Hyde is a flex play and outside my top-25 fantasy running backs for the week.
