Kenneth Gainwell rushed one time for six yards in loss to Bucs

Kenneth Gainwell rushed one time for six yards, caught five passes for 49 yards and logged a receiving touchdown in loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell has taken on more of a passing back role in the Phili offense in the second half of the season, he should look to continue that role in the offense for the 2022 season giving him some upside for PPR leagues as a late round draft pick. Gainwell will most likely have to battle it out with Scott though for the rushing role behind Sanders.

Kenneth Gainwell scores touchdown in loss to Cowboys

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed 12 times for 78 yards and a touchdown and caught four of his seven targets for nine yards in Saturday's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

With Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard, and Boston Scott all not playing on Saturday, Gainwell shared the workload with Jason Huntley in the Philadelphia backfield.

Kenneth Gainwell receives just one touch Week 17

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell carried the ball once for four yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Miles Sanders missing the game with a hand injury and Jordan Howard appearing to be at less than full strength, Gainwell was not part of the offensive game plan on Sunday. Through 15 games, the rookie running back has 556 carries for 213 yards and four touchdowns and has caught 29 of his 43 targets for 244 yards and a touchdown.

Kenneth Gainwell finds the end zone in win over Jets

Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell rushed 12 times for 54 yards and caught all five of his targets for 33 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell's 12 carries were his second-most in any game this season as he operated as the primary backup to starting running back Miles Sanders on Sunday. The Eagles running back situation will be crowded after their Week 14 bye, however, when Jordan Howard may return to give Philadelphia four healthy running backs.

Kenneth Gainwell caught 3 passes for 32 yards

Kenneth Gainwell caught 3 of his 4 targets for 32 yards in Eagles loss to Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Gainwell finished the game with no rush attempts but had 4 targets. This does tell us that the Eagles like Gainwell with the receiving work which is great for PPR league formats. Gainwell will face the Jets in Week 13 so in PPR formats he could be considered a desperation flex play with some upside playing the Jets defense who typically lack defensive ability against opposing running backs.
