In a hard-fought Week 2 contest against the New Orleans Saints, Miles Sanders of the Carolina Panthers found himself struggling to find his rhythm.
Fantasy Impact: The 26-year-old running back managed a modest 43 yards on 14 carries, averaging a mere 3.1 yards per carry. His involvement in the passing game was also limited, with only three receptions for a paltry four yards. Despite the Panthers’ loss, Sanders’s performance was not without its bright spots, including a 13-yard rush in the first quarter. However, his inability to find the end zone continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. Currently ranked as RB29 for the season, Sanders will need to step up his game next week against the Seattle Seahawks. His lack of touchdowns so far this season is a glaring issue, but his consistent involvement in the Panthers’ offense provides some hope for better days ahead.
