Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets: Kenneth Gainwell

Kenneth Gainwell (RB – PHI): 32% rostered

  • Next opponents: @ARI, DAL, BYE
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $12
  • Budget-minded: $3

Analysis: There isn’t much more to say at this point about Gainwell, who has graced every waiver column in 2022. Miles Sanders has been a pleasant surprise this season and has earned a larger volume of touches in the high-flying Eagles attack. Gainwell is still a very talented player, but he needs to score touchdowns to justify a fantasy roster spot if his receiving role doesn’t expand from its current status.
