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.
