News: 2 days agoGainwell caught three of his four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Giants.

Spin: Gainwell didn't get his name in the box score until the second half, nor did his usage increase much after Miles Sanders left with an ankle injury. The rookie never saw a carry in the game, and he played only 11 snaps as most of the work fell to Boston Scott with Sanders out. Nevertheless, if both Sanders and Jordan Howard (knee) end up being unable to go in Week 13, Gainwell would likely see more work behind Scott.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Gainwell was selected by Eagles in the fifth round of April's draft. The Memphis product is 5-foot-11, 201 pounds and an undersized scat back with average speed who figures to make his name as a pass catcher and perhaps in the slot WR in the pros. Gainwell's receiving prowess is apparent, as he averaged a massive 9.7 YPT during his final two FBS seasons. Gainwell opted out of the 2020 season, so we haven't seen him in a while, and, though he did handle a big workload in 2019, his size and skillset is unlikely to allow him much goal line work or a three-down role in the pros. He'll open his career battling Boston Scott for change-of-pace/passing-down role behind feature back Miles Sanders. Draft the rookie in only very deep PPR leagues.
