Player Outlook
Gainwell will likely be the No. 3 running back in Philadelphia this season, and he has minimal Fantasy value in that role. He's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. The Eagles lost Miles Sanders this offseason, but Philadelphia added D'Andre Swift and Rashaad Penny. While both are injury prone, it might take injuries to both at the same time for Gainwell to get an increased workload, and even then, Gainwell would share touches with Boston Scott. If Swift and Penny stay healthy, it could be difficult for Gainwell to get consistent touches. He didn't have more than nine total touches in any game in the regular season for the Eagles in 2022, and he doesn't profile as a workhorse on a consistent basis. Most likely, Gainwell is someone to add off waivers if Swift or Penny get injured during the year.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Four touches in overtime win

    Gainwell finished Sunday's 37-34 overtime win against the Bills with two carries for 26 yards and two catches for 10 yards. The game lasted an additional seven-plus minutes, but Gainwell still didn't play much of a role, finishing with fewer than five touches for the third consecutive game. He averaged 16.5 touches in his first two games of the season but has now averaged just 5.3 touches over his last eight contests. Gainwell did have a key 23-yard run to set up a sneak by Jalen Hurts for the first score of the game, but his lack of volume gives him little fantasy appeal.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Sees limited action Monday

    Gainwell rushed once for one yard and caught his only target for four yards in Monday's 21-17 win over the Chiefs. Gainwell played just 17 of the Eagles' 56 offensive snaps, and his two touches and five total yards accounted for his lowest outputs of the season. He's clearly behind D'Andre Swift in the pecking order at running back, and he'll continue to remain in a limited role barring an injury to Swift.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Gets into end zone in Sunday's win

    Gainwell carried the ball three times for 22 yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for one yard in Sunday's 28-23 win over the Cowboys. The third-year running back launched himself into the end zone with a forward flip from the three-yard line in the first quarter for the game's first points, giving Gainwell his second TD of the season -- both of which have come in the last three contests. His workload behind starter D'Andre Swift remains limited, but he's making the most of it, and Gainwell's role could grow coming out of the Eagles' Week 10 bye as the team gets ready for a Super Bowl rematch with Kansas City in Week 11.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Week 9 Waiver Priority List

    Gainwell has found a way to be productive in each of the past two games against Miami and Washington, and he's worth stashing in all leagues as the handcuff for D'Andre Swift. Against the Dolphins, Gainwell had eight carries for 16 yards and a touchdown, and he had five catches for 30 yards on five targets against the Commanders. He'll only have standalone value if Swift were to miss any time, but Gainwell could be a league-winning Fantasy option in that scenario. He's worth adding for 1 percent of your FAB.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Two carries but five catches

    Gainwell rushed twice for a loss of two yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Commanders but added five catches for 30 yards. Gainwell played a minimal role in the rushing game, but his receptions, receiving yards and targets (five) all represented season highs. In terms of total touches, however, he's now been held to single digits for five consecutive games, and his offensive snap count fell to a season-low 18.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Scores first TD this season

    Gainwell rushed eight times for 16 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Dolphins. D'Andre Swift (15-62-0) did the heavy lifting for Philadelphia on the ground, but it was Gainwell who cashed in a short touchdown on the Eagles' final scoring drive. It was the backup's first trip to the end zone in six games this season. The curious coaching decision to start Gainwell over Swift back in Week 1 is looking more like an anomaly with each passing week, leaving the backup with only deep-league fantasy appeal heading into next Sunday's matchup against the Commanders.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Season-low two carries

    Gainwell finished Sunday's 20-14 loss to the Jets with two carries for 13 yards and added four more receiving yards on one reception. Gainwell didn't trail primary running back DeAndre Swift by a wide margin in snap count (40-29), but Swift had 10 carries to Gainwell's two. That represented a season low for Gainwell, who's now carried the ball a total of 13 times over the last three weeks after receiving 14 carries in each of the first two games of the year.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Minor role in Week 5

    Gainwell finished Sunday's 23-14 win over the Rams with seven carries for 17 yards and pulled in one of his two targets for seven more yards. The Eagles backfield has settled into a distinct hierarchy in recent weeks, with D'Andre Swift the clear No. 1 option and Gainwell the clear No. 2. For the third consecutive week, no other back saw the field for a single offensive snap. Gainwell likely needs an injury to Swift to gain broader fantasy relevance, however, as he's averaged a modest 31 combined rushing and receiving yards on 9.7 touches per game over those three weeks. He's also yet to find the end zone this season.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Limited usage in OT win

    Gainwell carried the ball four times for 14 yards, caught both his targets for seven yards and ran in a two-point conversion in Sunday's 34-31 overtime win over the Commanders. D'Andre Swift dominated the Philly backfield with 18 touches, and while Gainwell was able to salvage a bit of fantasy value with his two-point conversion, it was still a disappointing showing for the third-year RB after he saw a combined 33 touches in his first two games of the season. As long as Swift remains productive in the lead role, it could be tough for Gainwell to deliver consistent numbers, but head coach Nick Sirianni could also look his way more often again in Week 5 against the Rams.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Outplayed by Swift in return

    Gainwell (ribs) rushed 14 times for 43 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Monday's 25-11 win over the Buccaneers. Gainwell's first carry in his return from a one-game absence came on fourth-and-1, and he got stuffed for minus-1 yard to end Philadelphia's opening drive in the red zone. He finished with 14 carries to D'Andre Swift's 16, but Swift was vastly more effective, churning out 130 rushing yards on the heels of last week's 175-yard performance on the ground. The gap in attempts was much wider while the game was still in doubt, as eight of Gainwell's carries came on the final drive. Swift's the leader in Philadelphia's backfield heading into a Week 4 home game against the Commanders, but Gainwell's the clear No. 2 option over Rashaad Penny, who didn't register a touch Monday, and Boston Scott (concussion), who was inactive.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Full practice participant

    Gainwell (ribs) was a full practice participant Friday ahead of Monday's game in Tampa Bay. Gainwell handled 62 percent snap share and 18 touches in the season opener but now finds himself rejoining a backfield that had D'Andre Swift run for 175 yards in a Week 2 win over Minnesota. Given Swift's standout performance and Gainwell's pre-Week 1 lack of experience in a No. 1 role, it'll be surprising if Gainwell is the lead guy Monday night. If nothing else, Gainwell remains a strong candidate for playing time in obvious passing situations.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Officially limited Thursday

    Gainwell (ribs) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. Gainwell got the Week 1 start out of the Eagles backfield and managed 74 yards from scrimmage on 18 touches. He emerged from that contest with a rib injury that ended up sidelining him for last Thursday's win against the Vikings. Fellow running back D'Andre Swift took advantage of Gainwell's absence, taking 28 carries for 175 yards and one touchdown while adding three catches (on three targets) for six yards. Swift likely will remain Philadelphia's No. 1 RB for the foreseeable future, even when Gainwell is cleared for game action. Having said that, Boston Scott didn't practice Thursday because he's in the concussion protocol, which could allow Gainwell to be the primary backup behind Swift on Monday in Tampa Bay, assuming Gainwell is active.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Back on practice field

    Gainwell (rib) was spotted on the field for the portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. After sitting out the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Vikings on Sept. 14 due to a rib injury, Gainwell appears to have at least made some progress in his recovery. While the extent of his practice activity won't be known until the Eagles release their first official Week 3 injury report later Thursday, the fact that Gainwell is on the field in any capacity bodes well for his chances of playing Monday against the Buccaneers. Gainwell served as the Eagles' lead back in the team's season-opening win over the Patriots, but it's unclear how big of a role he might handle if he's fully cleared for Monday's contest. While Gainwell was sidelined Week 2, D'Andre Swift erupted for 28 carries for 175 yards and a touchdown to go with three catches for six yards. On the heels of the big performance, Swift may have made a case to poach work from Gainwell on both early downs and passing downs.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Won't play in Week 2

    Gainwell (ribs) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Vikings. Gainwell was unable to practice at all during Week 2 prep due to a rib injury, and his absence Thursday will leave the Eagles backfield in the hands of D'Andre Swift, Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny. Philadelphia doesn't play again until Sept. 25 at Tampa Bay, so he'll have almost two weeks to rest and recover before the team next needs to make a decision on his availability.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Appears likely to sit Week 2

    Gainwell (ribs) appears to be trending toward sitting out Thursday's game against the Vikings, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Eagles will provide an official gameday designation for Gainwell following Wednesday's practice, but his chances of playing Thursday don't appear promising after he was listed as a non-participant on practice reports Monday and Tuesday. Gainwell will likely need to log at least limited activity Wednesday to have hope of playing Week 2. He served as the lead option for Philadelphia's backfield Week 1, so an absence from Gainwell would spell increased opportunities for D'Andre Swift and Boston Scott, who handled depth roles in the win over New England. Rashaad Penny, who was inactive Week 1, would also likely dress Thursday if Gainwell sits and could factor into the Eagles' rushing attack.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Another DNP on Tuesday

    Gainwell (ribs) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate. For a second consecutive day, Gainwell was held out of the Eagles' walkthrough, giving him just one more chance to log some activity ahead of Thursday's game against the Vikings. It's unclear if his current rib injury is threatening his availability for that contest, but Philadelphia at least boasts backfield depth in the event he is limited or out. In the team's Week 1 win at New England, Gainwell turned a 62 percent snap share into 18 touches for 74 yards from scrimmage, while D'Andre Swift played 28 percent of snaps en route to two touches, Boston Scott totaled two touches on 13 percent of snaps, and Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Week 2 Waiver Priority List

    Keep an eye on Gainwell's rib injury, and hopefully he'll be fine for Thursday's game against the Vikings. In Week 1 at New England, Gainwell was the lead running back for the Eagles, playing 62 percent of the snaps, ahead of D'Andre Swift (29 percent) and Boston Scott (12 percent), with Rashaad Penny inactive. Gainwell had 14 carries for 54 yards and four catches for 20 yards on four targets. Nick Sirianni wants Swift to be more involved, and we'll see what happens moving forward. But for now you have to proceed with Gainwell as the lead running back in Philadelphia, which makes him a must-add in all leagues for 15-20 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Dominates backfield touches

    Gainwell rushed the ball 14 times for 54 yards in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Patriots. He added four receptions on four targets for 20 yards. Gainwell shifted up the depth chart after Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch. However, he not only led the way in the Philadelphia backfield, he dominated touches as Boston Scott and D'Andre Swift each saw only one carry. While his performance was unspectacular, Gainwell did nothing to lose the job by playing without any significant mistakes in rainy conditions. As a result, he seemingly has a good chance to lead the way again in a Week 2 matchup against the Vikings.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Moves up depth chart

    With Rashaad Penny expected to be a healthy scratch for Sunday's matchup against New England, Gainwell and Boston Scott will operate as the primary backups to D'Andre Swift, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports. The Eagles were always expected to have a backfield committee after moving on from Miles Sanders while adding Swift and Penny this offseason. That likely won't change in Week 1, although Penny's imminent inactive status is somewhat surprising. While Swift will presumably start and operate as a lead back, Gainwell and Scott should be mixed in often given their familiarity with Philadelphia's system. Gainwell, a 2021 fifth-round pick, has showcased a solid dual-threat skill set during his first two years in the league, but his role has always been limited.

  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: Week 1 Adds (RB Preview)

    We have received extremely mixed signals about the Eagles running backs. I would not be surprised at all if Gainwell sees a bigger role than we're projecting and even leads the Eagles backfield in Fantasy points in Week 1. Still, it's a terrible matchup, so he should only be started in deep leagues.
