  • Eagles Sign Tyrion Davis-Price To Futures Deal

    Headshot for Tyrion Davis-Price

    The Philadelphia Eagles signed former San Francisco 49ers third-round running back Tyrion Davis-Price to a Reserve/Futures deal on Tuesday, according to his agency. Davis-Price was drafted in 2022 out of LSU but failed to make an impact in the Bay Area in his first two seasons in the league, carrying the ball just 40 times for 120 yards (3.0 yards per carry) and no touchdowns while failing to catch either of his two targets in just seven games played. The 23-year-old played in one game for the Niners last year, rushing the ball six times for 21 yards. In Philly, he'll provide RB depth behind Kenneth Gainwell. D'Andre Swift, Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny are all scheduled to hit free agency next month, so the Eagles' backfield could look considerably different this year.

  • Kenneth Gainwell Likely To Start For Eagles

    Headshot for Kenneth Gainwell

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell figures to draw the start in the backfield on Sunday in the team's Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Giants with lead back D'Andre Swift (illness) expected to be inactive. Swift was a late addition to the team's injury report this week, and with the Eagles needing a Washington Commanders win over the Dallas Cowboys (which is unlikely) to win the NFC East division, they figure to rest some of their key contributors on both sides of the ball this weekend. Swift being out will make Gainwell more attractive as a low-cost DFS option in the final game of the regular season, although he, too, could eventually be rested on Sunday in favor of Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny as Philly looks to get healthy for the first round of the playoffs next weekend.

  • Kenneth Gainwell Not A Reliable Flex Option In Week 18

    Headshot for Kenneth Gainwell

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell will go on the road to take on the New York Giants in Week 18. Top back D'Andre Swift (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale but will likely be good to go. Gainwell would become the No. 1 back was Swift to miss and become a solid flex option. However, if Swift is active, the 24-year-old backup will not see enough work to be fantasy-relevant. While Gainwell has been more involved on passing downs as of late, he averaged just 6.3 touches per game over the past month. Swift gets the majority of carries, while quarterback Jalen Hurts scores the majority of goal-line touchdowns via the Brotherly Shove. Gainwell will only be a viable flex for those in need if Swift were to miss.

  • Kenneth Gainwell Has Six Touches In Upset Loss

    Headshot for Kenneth Gainwell

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell had a quiet game in the 35-31 upset loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17. He finished the Week 17 contest with only two carries for five yards while catching all four of his targets in the passing game for 15 yards. It came despite playing a team-high 53 percent of the offensive snaps. Backfield mate D'Andre Swift played 47 percent of the snaps and had a team-high 13 carries for 61 yards, adding a five-yard reception. The highlight for the 24-year-old Gainwell was completing the first pass of his career, a 17-yard hookup with receiver DeVonta Smith. Gainwell just isn't seeing enough volume as a complementary back behind Swift to be fantasy relevant on a weekly basis, but he could get more run in the Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Giants if the Eagles decide to rest Swift and some of the other starters.

  • Eagles Focused On Getting Their Running Game Going

    Headshot for Kenneth Gainwell

    The Philadelphia Eagles want to get their running game going in a Week 14 divisional showdown against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday after getting embarrassed at home by the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13. The Eagles had 46 rushing yards in a 42-19 loss, with 26 of those yards coming from quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Marcus Mariota. Offensive coordinator Brian Johnson said there has to be "a balancing act" between the score and the need "to continue to hammer attempts and try to get the guys in a good rhythm and a good flow." Philly is fifth in the NFL in rushing attempts in 2023, so we can be sure that they will keep handing the ball off to D'Andre Swift and Kenneth Gainwell. Swift suffered an undisclosed injury late in Sunday's loss, but he could be in for a big workload against Dallas if he's able to play.
