I’m not expecting #Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) and CB James Bradberry (concussion) to face the #Vikings. Could be the same for S Reed Blankenship (ribs). But DT Fletcher Cox (ribs) is trending toward playing.
The Eagles backfield was surprisingly controlled by Gainwell in Week 1, as he accounted for 14 rushing attempts and four targets while Rashaad Penny was a healthy scratch. We have been in similar situations with Boston Scott, so please don't go add him in anything but incredibly deep leagues, but we should see Penny on the field, and Swift should get a giant bump as well.
PHI RB Kenneth Gainwell - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 vs. Washington Commanders
Kenneth Gainwell returned from injury and ended up with 15 touches for 48 yards. However, it is clear he is the backup now to D'Andre Swift. Still, he will score fantasy points if he gets the touches and playing time like last week.
Gainwell will face Washington who has an average run defense. However, we don't think he will do enough this week to warrant a start. Keep Gainwell on the bench for Week 4.
