News: 6 days agoGainwell carried the ball once for zero yards and wasn't targeted with any passes in Sunday's win against Indianapolis.
Spin: Gainwell saw the field for just 11 offenses snaps, fewer even than fellow depth running back Boston Scott (13 snaps). Scott also received five touches compared to just one for Gainwell. Gainwell has now received just one carry in three of the last four weeks and hasn't carried the ball more than five times in any game this season.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Eagles selected Gainwell in the fifth round of the 2021 draft and utilized him in spurts throughout his rookie campaign. Gainwell played more than 40% of the snaps in only three games and was limited to five weekly fantasy finishes better than 38th. He totaled 544 yards on 101 touches and was a bit lucky in the TD department (six TDs, 3.5 expected). Gainwell will battle for a larger share of the pie this season, but Miles Sanders and Boston Scott will both be involved as well. The Eagles' run-heavy scheme makes Gainwell a fine bench hold, though his 191-pound frame is likely to limit him to situational duties throughout his career.
