Kenneth Gainwell Week 7 Outlook - Eagles at Raiders

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Wed, Oct 20th 2021, 6:12pm EDT

After week four, it looked like Gainwell might be heading towards a massive role in this offense and that he could potentially take over the starting role from Sanders in this backfield. He had 11 total opportunities (carries + targets) against Kansas City and he performed well with that workload. Since that game, Gainwell has seen just seven total opportunities over the past two weeks and he has just 25 total yards to show for it. This offense in Philadelphia is abysmal at times and we simply can't trust the play-calling or usage of their most talented players. If you need to move on from Gainwell for a RB option that's seeing consistent usage, it's fine to drop him to your waiver wire. Otherwise, we can't consider him in our starting lineups for this week.
