  • Washington Wants Antonio Gibson To Be More Decisive

    The Washington Commanders still like running back Antonio Gibson a lot and he can provide big plays, but the team wants him to be more consistent in the way he runs and to be more "one-cut and go." Gibson gets himself in trouble when he becomes indecisive about when or where to cut, which leads to the ball swinging away from his body and causes fumbles. If Gibson continues to have fumbling issues, the Commanders can turn to rookie Brian Robinson and pass-catching back J.D. McKissic. Gibson had a poor first preseason showing and also fumbled, so Robinson could become just as intriguing, if not more, in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2022 season.

  • Antonio Gibson Working With Punt Team

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson is playing the slot on the punt-block team in training camp practice, which appears to be a new development. Special teams coordinator Nate Kaczor likes running backs in the slot because the role is similar to pass protection. In the past, it's been rookie Brian Robinson in that spot. Robinson fumbled in the team's preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers and carried the ball two times for only four yards. Robinson looked much better in the first preseason action and could already be taking over as the team's primary running back. Gibson has produced 1,832 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons, but J.D. McKissic will also steal touches away in 2022, making Gibson a shaky RB2 commodity entering the regular season.

  • Antonio Gibson Works With Backups in Preseason Opener

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson carried the ball four times for two yards along with one reception for two yards in Saturday's loss to the Carolina Panthers. The 24-year-old had a rough start as his second carry resulted in a fumble, leading to him being quickly replaced by Brian Robinson. Gibson's ball security is still an issue, and the coaching staff seems to feel comfortable with what they have in Robinson. There's still time for the third-year back to regain trust, but he may be on his way to losing touches in this backfield. Be cautious when considering him during drafts.

  • Antonio Gibson Returns To Team Drills

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson (hamstring) received his first carry of training camp in team drills on Friday and looked solid. The Commanders chose to ease Gibson into camp workouts this summer, and he has avoided any setbacks with his hamstring to this point. The 24-year-old wants to play lighter this year as he looks to hold off rookie Brian Robinson and pass-catching back J.D. McKissic. He had his first 1,000-yard rushing season in his second year in 2021, but Washington seems adamant on splitting the workload more, with Robinson in line to steal valuable short-yardage and goal-line work from Gibson. As things are trending right now, Gibson has become a very shaky RB2 for fantasy managers.

  • Antonio Gibson Working On Side Field

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson (hamstring) has opened up training camp working on a side field. He also missed a bit of mandatory minicamp in June with a hamstring twinge. Head coach Ron Rivera said Gibson is being held out due to "an abundance of caution." The 24-year-old's absence will allow J.D. McKissic and rookie third-rounder Brian Robinson to get more repetitions in camp for now. Gibson's fantasy stock has fallen heading into the 2022 season after McKissic chose to return and the team drafted Robinson in the third round. Gibson's 2021 gains were mostly due to volume, which he won't be guaranteed this year. Fantasy managers should consider him a low-end RB2.

  • Antonio Gibson, Curtis Samuel Sitting Out Wednesday

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson (hamstring) has a slightly pulled hamstring and will sit out of practice on Wednesday, while wide receiver Curtis Samuel will also take a seat after coming in a little sore on Wednesday, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The Commanders are being smart with both players, and Rivera said he's looking forward to seeing Samuel in minicamp next week. Rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. will see some more repetitions with Gibson sidelined. Gibson should be the team's primary back in 2022, but sharing work with J.D. McKissic and Robinson will make him more of a high-end RB2 target in fantasy. Samuel's years was washed away by injuries last year, but he could be a nice low-cost bounce-back target near the end of drafts.

  • Antonio Gibson May Get Less Work In 2022

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson had a productive 2021 season. He ran for over 1,000 yards while totaling 10 touchdowns. He also had a career-high 42 catches for 294 yards. However, head coach Ron Rivera recently stated that the team would utilize a committee approach out of the backfield during the 2022-23 campaign, meaning J.D. McKissic, Jaret Patterson, and rookie Brian Robinson Jr. will get some snaps. While Gibson still figures to be Washington's primary runner, his competition for touches could severely lessen his fantasy impact.

  • Antonio Gibson's Usage Could Be Unpredictable

    The Washington Commanders envision running backs Antonio Gibson and rookie Brian Robinson Jr. leading their backfield this year. Robinson will provide a little more power and short-yardage success while also helping to keep Gibson fresher over the full season. There's also J.D. McKissic, who has 123 catches over the last two seasons. Gibson rushed for 1,037 in 2021, sixth-most in the NFL, and he showed more patience. Gibson's touches should remain high -- he ranked fourth in the league with 300 last year -- but his weekly usage could vary more with Robinson and McKissic firmly in the mix. "If the game's going to get physical and you have to really grind it out, you want to mix in with somebody else," Rivera said. "They may not get 20 carries, but just to change up the physicality."
