Miles Sanders was the hero we all wanted and needed in the first week of fantasy playoff action. While there are likely many fantasy teams out there who roster Sanders and didn’t make it to the playoffs after busting in each of the first 13 weeks, Week 14 was a redemption story for the ages. He looked patient and explosive, helping lead the Eagles to a victory over the vaunted Saints. Meanwhile, Derrick Henry did Derrick Henry things as usual, eclipsing 200 yards on the ground for the fourth time since 2018. Another RB tried to do his own Derrick Henry impression, as Jonathan Taylor continued his late-season breakout against a terrible Raiders’ defense. All three guys were likely chosen in the first three rounds of your draft, and though Henry has been a beast all season, it’s nice to see the other two rounding into form just in time for when it matters most.
