Kenneth Gainwell Puts In Limited Practice

Thursday, September 21, 7:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in the team's first practice of the week on Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow RB Boston Scott was held out with a concussion. Gainwell was surprisingly the Eagles' lead runner in the season-opening win over the New England Patriots, but he picked up a rib injury in that contest and was inactive in last Thursday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. The 24-year-old looks to be in good shape to return on Monday night for a Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but there's no guarantee he'll see as much work as he did in Week 1 after D'Andre Swift had 28 carries for 175 yards and a touchdown last Thursday.

Tyler Allgeier - Week 3 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Wednesday, September 20, 9:27 AM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was the RB4 overall in standard scoring formats in Week 1 but had a disappointing Week 2 effort with 16 carries for 48 yards. However, his workload is still respectable enough to roll the dice on him in FLEX spots, especially in the deep leagues. In Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, the Falcons will continue to adopt a run-first approach and should have success on the ground. Allgeier is dependent on touchdowns to pay off in fantasy football, but he should have a good chance at finding the end zone against a mediocre defense. His workload could be reduced as the season moves forward, so now is the time to get the value out of him in fantasy lineups.
