Kenneth Gainwell inactive for Week 11 matchup with Saints

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell is inactive for the team's Week 11 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. He's a healthy scratch.

Fantasy Impact

With the return of Miles Sanders and the recent elevation of Jordan Howard from the practice squad, Gainwell is the odd man out in the Philadelphia backfield, at least for this week. NFL insider Mike Garafolo reports that the team is still high on Gainwell and that this is more of a "game-plan/special teams" decision.

Kenneth Gainwell receives just three touches Week 10

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed two times for five yards and caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

The absence of Miles Sanders has not resulted in a consistent role for Gainwell, who has taken a back seat to fellow running backs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott.

Kenneth Gainwell finds the end zone despite small workload vs. Chargers

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed two times for three yards and a touchdown and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Some thought that Gainwell would be the primary beneficiary of Miles Sanders's injury, but Gainwell has taken a back seat to Boston Scott and Jordan Howard in the running game. The Eagles will likely need to throw the ball more in Week 10 against the Broncos, so it's possible that game plan will feature Gainwell more.

Kenneth Gainwell hardly utilized in blowout win over Lions

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed 13 times for 27 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's blowout win over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell took a back seat to Boston Scott and Jordan Howard for most of the day as those two combined to rush for four touchdowns. Gainwell actually ended up leading the team in carries with 13, but nearly all of his touches came late in the game after the score was already lopsided. The young running back was a popular add on waivers this week, but his role remains unclear despite Miles Sanders landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Kenneth Gainwell catches touchdown pass in loss to Raiders

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed five times for 20 yards and caught four of his eight targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell's eight targets in the passing game tied a season-high, and his five rushing attempts were his most since Week 2 against the 49ers. Starting running back Miles Sanders suffered an ankle injury on Sunday, and Gainwell would likely split time with Boston Scott again if Sanders has to miss any time.
