Gainwell's an incredibly talented RB that happened to fall during the NFL Draft, but should still be able to make a big impact when he gets onto the field. With Sanders above him on the depth chart, it's unlikely that Gainwell ever enters into the FLEX conversation, but we could see him carve out enough of a role to hurt Sanders' overall upside. If Sanders misses time again with an injury though, we could see Gainwell become a hot waiver wire add. Keep an eye on the dynamic RB as we move into the season.

Kenneth Gainwell selected No. 150 by Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have selected RB Kenneth Gainwell with the No. 150 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year old running back out of Memphis will add depth behind Miles Sanders in 2021, providing a potent combination of quickness and power to keep defenders on their toes. Coming out of the same collegiate offense that yielded Antonio Gibson, Gainwell racked up 51 receptions for 610 yards and three touchdowns in 2020 on top of carrying for 1,459 yards and another 13 touchdowns on the ground. He is essentially a younger, more explosive Boston Scott and will likely see meaningful reps in 2021, especially if Miles Sanders continues to deal with injuries.
