Boston Scott 2020 Dynasty Outlook
Fun fact: Boston Scott was the weightlifting state champion of Louisiana in high school. He was also a standout RB which lead him to playing 4 years at his hometown school, Louisiana Tech. He started to get playing time his Junior year, but became the starter in his Senior year. He totaled 1,228 yards of total offense while averaging nearly 100 yards a game.
With the 201st pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints selected Boston Scott, RB, Louisiana Tech University.
Scott had a bumpy start in the NFL, making the Saints roster then getting cut and signed to their practice squad. He then went to the Eagles who signed him off their practice squad, where he didn’t make their 53 man roster and got placed on the Eagles practice squad. He was finally signed in 2019 to an injury-riddled Eagles roster and 2 weeks later he scored his first career TD. The New York Giants were his favorite team to torment this year, rushing for 113 yards and 4 TDs with an added 153 yards on 10 receptions. He made his name heard last year, finishing as RB49 in 8 games played. He only had 1 game where he played more than 50% of the offensive snaps.
Boston Scott has high hopes in 2020 as Miles Sanders’ handcuff. With the Eagles not signing Freeman, Hyde, or McCoy, Scott will be the 3rd down back and pass catching back (Miles Sanders will also be involved in pass game, don’t get me wrong). He could be a guy who gets you around 10 points pretty consistently with potential for more, especially if Sanders goes down with an injury. Sanders managers–make Scott a priority this offseason.
Boston Scott Dynasty Outlook – Beyond 2020
Looking beyond 2020, Scott’s Dynasty outlook is very up in the air. He is already 25 years old and may be more of a short term option than a long term guy. I wouldn’t depend on Scott being relevant longer than a couple years. As much as I love Boston Scott, I don’t think his fantasy relevance will last.
Boston Scott’s ADP is #132 overall and #49 among RBs in PPR formats. His value in draft picks in 1QB and Superflex is an early 3rd to a mid 3rd in both. If you’re selling to a Miles Sanders manager, I’d ask for a late second for him.
The players that are comparable to Boston Scott in 1QB leagues are JJ Arcega-Whiteside, David Njoku, Cam Newton, Tyrell Williams, and Dawson Knox. Scott’s upside in PPR makes him an easy keep with all these guys.
In Superflex formats, players to target would be Breshad Perriman, Allen Lazard, Hunter Renfrow, Alshon Jeffery, Andy Isabella, Adam Trautman and John Ross III. I’d be targeting Perriman, Lazard, Renfrow and Jeffery if I’m trading away Scott. The other 3 would be hard passes for me.
