Week 2 vs. San Francisco
The fifth-round draft pick made his NFL debut and was serviceable in the Eagles offense, Gainwell carried the ball nine times and added two receptions for a total of 43 yards. Where his real value came was that he scored a rushing touchdown.
Philly faces a very good San Francisco defense but the game is at home. This will be a true test for the Eagles' offense and will give us a better idea of where they stand.
Gainwell is a bench player at this point but the usage is encouraging. This might be a good pickup if you are looking for a running back on your bench or if you have Miles Sanders to be his collar.
