Pat Fitzmaurice

Gainwell's debut was fun. On 25 offensive snaps, Gainwell carried nine times for 37 yards and a touchdown, and caught 2 of 3 targets for six yards. He also had a TD catch negated by a penalty, so he almost had two touchdowns in his first NFL game. The Eagles' opponents this week, the 49ers, let Detroit running backs hang 33.4 fantasy points on them in Week 1, but the Lions also ran 81 plays, a freakishly high total. Consider Sanders a high-end RB2 this week and Gainwell an intriguing roster stash.With the Saints currently thin at wide receiver, this could become a TE-centric offense for a while. We saw some of that against Green Bay, although the lopsided score may have muted the effect a bit. Trautman played 51 of 62 snaps. He ran routes on only 35% of those snaps, but again ... blowout. Johnson played only 12 snaps but ran routes on 10 of them. He caught all three of his targets for 21 yards and two touchdowns. Puny snap counts could scare people away from Johnson, but if he's running routes on the vast majority of his snaps - and things seem to be pointing that way - then he could be a useful fantasy option. Johnson's emergence of training camp seemed to turn people away from Trautman, but Trautman's big snap share is a good sign. New Orleans is now fertile ground for TE speculators.

Kenneth Gainwell was someone that I loved coming into the NFL Draft and was shocked when he fell as far as he did. Coming into the 2021 season though, it was unclear what exactly his role in this offense was going to be. Would Boston Scott play a massive role behind Sanders or could it be more of a 50/50 split? We have our answer after week one and it's not even a competition. Scott only came onto the field in Special Teams packages and Gainwell amassed 11 touches right out of the gates. While he scored - and that vaulted him up the fantasy finish rankings - it's unlikely that he finds the end zone every single week. He'll be a useful FLEX play in Full PPR formats - and he's worth rostering on your bench in nearly every format - but we shouldn't jump too far with our conclusions from one game.Juwan Johnson is going to fill a very valuable role for this Saints offense and he certainly made an impact in week one by reeling in two touchdowns. With that being said, he only saw three targets in this game, which doesn't put him in the "trustworthy starter" conversation yet.
