Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

Taking a flier on Kenneth Gainwell is a bet on his pass-catching chops in the Eagles’ offense. The Memphis product finished sixth in yards per route run, hauling in 33 of his 50 targets for 253 receiving yards. And in five games where he played at least 35% of the snaps, Gainwell averaged 17.5 fantasy points (PPR) and 4.2 catches on just 12.4 touches per contest.

Among the Eagles’ crowded backfield, Gainwell playing on third downs as the primary pass catcher provides him weekly standalone value. But there’s always a chance he eats more into work on early downs and in the red zone entering Year 2.

The team’s leader in red-zone touches from last season (Jordan Howard, 24) is no longer on the roster. Gainwell scored five touchdowns from inside the 20-yard line last season.
