ANDY BEHRENS: Philadelphia just ran all over Detroit in week eight, all over them, 236 team rushing yards. And Boston Scott got them started. He finished with a dozen carries, 60 rushing yards, 2 touchdowns. Great game from Scott.

Jordan Howard followed him. Kenneth Gainwell barely a rumor in this thing, just an afterthought, didn't really get running till garbage time. Scott is clearly the guy that we're going to want to roster moving forward. They get a great match-up in week nine with the Chargers absolute run funnel defense. The Chargers on the season, the worst run defense in the league. So you are going to want to fire up Boston Scott in that one.

Another name that you want to think about, Rashod Bateman coming off a bye. He's available right now in about 70% of Yahoo leagues. Bateman was thrown right into the fire after coming off of IR. He's seen a dozen targets in his first two games. He's coming off an 80-yard effort. He's going to be great moving forward, someone that you can roster as a flex, as a wide receiver 3. He's going to be a really good fantasy play.
