Kenneth Gainwell Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Dan Harris (FantasyPros), Wed, Aug 25th 2021, 9:15pm EDT

Gainwell has plenty of talent, particularly in the passing game where he's an outstanding route-runner. The problem is that with his landing spot, there's very little to be excited about. Philadelphia not only has a locked in starting running back in Miles Sanders, but the team has plenty of depth with Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. And it's not exactly like the Eagles targeted Gainwell - he was a fifth-round pick in the draft - so they aren't going to go out of their way to build a role for him in his rookie year. The path to Gainwell being fantasy-relevant in 2021 is a tortured one that requires multiple injuries ahead of him, so he's best drafted only as a depth piece late in extremely deep leagues.
