A year ago, it looked like the Philadelphia Eagles were looking for another playmaker at the running back position.
In the first five games of the season, the Eagles have averaged 6.7 yards per carry with Peters as the primary option.
That’s a huge improvement from last year, when the Eagles averaged just 2.9 yards per attempt with him on the field.
But the Eagles are in the middle of the pack in rushing attempts, so the change may not be enough to make up for the lack of a consistent runner.
That hasn’t been an issue so far, with the Eagles averaging just 2,094 rushing yards per game.
But they have to find a way to get Peters to work if they want to have any chance of keeping pace with the rest of the league.
Peters has been very productive as a runner and is averaging 4.9 YPC and 12 touchdowns.
If the Eagles were to get rid of him, they would be losing a big part of their running game and could also have to rely on other running backs to fill the void.
If they can’t find a running back that can play like Peters, they will need to find some other options to replace him.
