  • Antonio Gibson - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson has a great matchup against an extremely weak Kansas City defensive unit in Week 6, as they have given up the third-most rushing yards per game (141.0) on 5.2 yards per carry. Gibson should see the majority of backfield touches in this one, so fantasy managers can count on him as a locked-and-loaded RB1 with huge upside in this game. The 23-year-old has scored three touchdowns in his past two games, and will likely get a couple of opportunities to score in this one, as he has been the go-to option when close to the goal line. J.D. McKissic will likely see more usage in the passing game, but Gibson's volume on the ground should make up for a lack of receiving work.

  • Antonio Gibson Not Limited By Shin Injury

    Washington Football Team offensive coordinator Scott Turner said running back Antonio Gibson (shin) has not been limited by a hairline fracture in his shin. "No. He's good. He's not limited. We take care of him during the week and we make sure he's ready to go, but as of now once Sunday hits he's ready to go," Turner said. Gibson has been missing practices on Wednesdays but he returned to a limited session on Thursday and should be good to go in Week 6 against the 29th-ranked Kansas City Chiefs run defense. In the last two weeks, the 23-year-old has handled 34 carries for 123 yards and three touchdowns while catching all four of his targets for 24 yards. J.D. McKissic could see a bigger role if Washington is forced to pass more than they'd like this Sunday, but Gibson should remain locked in as an RB1 in fantasy lineups.

  • Antonio Gibson Back At Practice Thursday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) is back at practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Gibson has been playing through a hairline fracture in his shin and has been rested on Wednesdays the last several weeks. He hasn't missed a game either, but the shin injury is something to continue watching as the season progresses. The 23-year-old remains Washington's go-to back, although J.D. McKissic can cut into Gibson's workload when the team is trailing by multiple scores. Gibson has still handled heavy workloads and remains a strong RB1 choice for fantasy managers, although McKissic could be more involved than usual in Week 6 against a high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs offense.

  • Antonio Gibson, Curtis Samuel Not Practicing

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) and wide receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. Gibson is dealing with a hairline fracture in his shin but has been playing through it, carrying the ball 20 times for 60 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints. This could become a routine for him sitting out practices early in the week to manage the injury. He'll remain a low-end RB1 for Week 6 against the Chiefs. Samuel, on the other hand, is week-to-week after aggravating his ongoing groin issue in his season debut on Sunday. DeAndre Carter stepped up with Samuel going down, playing 69.9% of the snaps and catching four of his eight targets for 62 yards. He could serve as the third receiver behind Terry McLaurin and Adam Humphries if Samuel is forced to miss yet another game.

  • Antonio Gibson Scores Two Touchdowns In Week 5

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) was questionable going into Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints. He was able to suit up for the game and he went on to deliver his best fantasy output of the year so far. He rushed for 60 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries and also caught both of his targets in the passing game for 12 yards. He significantly outperformed the team's No. 2 back J.D. McKissic, who caught just one of his four targets for eight yards and had negative two rushing yards. Gibson should be viewed as a high-end RB2 or even a low-end RB1 going forward. He has a great matchup next week against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have been bludgeoned by the run so far. Going into this week, they were averaging 146 rushing yards allowed per game, the second-most in the league.

  • Antonio Gibson Playing On Sunday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) is expected to play through his injury against the Saints on Sunday. He had been listed as questionable heading into this weekend. The 23-year-old reportedly suffered a stress fracture but is not in severe pain, which is why he has been able to play through the injury this season. He has racked up 360 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns but has not been able to serve in an every-down back role due to the nagging presence of receiving back J.D. McKissic. The latter has seen the field for at least 36 percent of snaps in every game this year, totaling 198 scrimmage yards and a pair of scores. Gibson is a mid-range RB2 this week while McKissic falls into the high-end RB3 range in PPR leagues.

  • Antonio Gibson Has Stress Fracture In Shin

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) says that he has a stress fracture in his shin but will be able to play through it. This could be something to monitor in the next couple of weeks as this could potentially be an injury that gets worse progressively. He is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints, but it would be a surprise if he is not able to suit up on Sunday. The 23-year-old is a must-start option even in a tough matchup with the Saints run defense, but fantasy managers should temper their expectations a bit. The sophomore is best valued as a solid RB2 in this one.

  • Antonio Gibson, Curtis Samuel Questionable For Week 5

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) and wide receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) are both questionable for Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints. After getting in some practice time this week, Gibson should be able to suit up this Sunday. But he'll face a tough matchup against New Orleans' strong defensive line, making him more of a low-end RB1/high-end RB2. If he's a surprise inactive, J.D. McKissic would be a must-start, with rookie Jaret Patterson also seeing a bigger role. Samuel made his season debut last week and played just 35 percent of the offensive snaps, but he could be in line for a much bigger workload if he plays against the Saints with Dyami Brown, Cam Sims and Logan Thomas all out.

  • Antonio Gibson Returns To Practice

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Unless Gibson suffers a setback between now and Sunday, he should be good to go for Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints. Gibson comes into the week as the No. 12 overall running back in fantasy points with 59 carries for 253 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He's also added eight receptions for 107 yards and another score through the air. J.D. McKissic can cut into Gibson's workload, mostly in passing situations, when the team is chasing points. But Gibson remains a high-usage back and will be on the RB1/2 borderline this weekend.

  • Antonio Gibson Misses Practice Wednesday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) was held out of practice on Wednesday. Gibson has been dealing with this injury since last week, so it doesn't seem to be something that will prevent him from playing. Although a DNP isn't ideal, his workload on Thursday and Friday will likely determine his status for Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints. Fantasy managers should monitor his status up until Sunday and should insert him into lineups if he is active. The matchup with New Orleans isn't friendly to running backs, but a large workload could make up for any inefficiency on the ground. He is best valued as a high-end RB2 in this one.

  • Antonio Gibson Finds The End Zone In Week 4

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson finished with 14 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4, while adding two receptions for 12 yards. He salvaged a potentially rough performance for fantasy managers with a two-yard touchdown run, so some more consistency as a ball-carrier could heighten his ceiling moving forward. The 23-year-old is in for a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints in Week 5, so he could be in for another game with limited yardage on the ground. In tough matchups, he can be downgraded to a high-end RB2 as opposed to the lower-end RB1 he was drafted as.

  • Antonio Gibson Expected To Play In Week 4

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) is likely to play in Week 4 against the Falcons. Listed as questionable, Gibson made the trip to Atlanta with the team, the first positive indicator regarding his status for the upcoming contest. The 23-year-old has been the clear lead back for Washington, pacing the backfield in snaps and touches en route to two 100-scrimmage yard games in his first three contests, though he has ceded some of the pass-catching duties to J.D. McKissic. That won't matter as much against a Falcons defense that ranks 24th in rush DVOA. Gibson should be regarded as a high-end RB2 if he's out there.

  • Antonio Gibson Travels With Team In Week 4

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) is officially listed as questionable to play in Sunday's game against Atlanta as he battles a shin ailment. But the first step in the right direction for his availability is the news that he traveled with the team Saturday, alongside defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis (knee). Also boding well for Gibson's chances of taking the field is that Washington chose not to elevate any additional running backs from its practice squad. While he may be banged up if he does suit up vs. the Falcons, Gibson will be a must-start in all season-long formats, while remaining an appealing DFS option in a variety of contests. J.D. McKissic would retain full PPR intrigue, but his ceiling would remain capped.

  • Antonio Gibson Questionable For Week 4

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) is questionable to play Sunday, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Gibson did not practice Thursday and logged a limited session on Friday. The 23-year-old has also been dealing with a minor shoulder injury, so his limited workload at practice could just be a precaution as we are still in the early parts of a long season. If he is active, Gibson is a must-start option and can be valued as a mid-to-low end RB1 against a weak Atlanta Falcons' run defense.

  • Antonio Gibson Dealing With Shin Injury

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shin) missed practice on Thursday due to a shin injury. Gibson was wearing a sleeve over his shin during practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if this injury is actually something that could keep him from playing in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons, but we'll have a better idea on Gibson's status on Friday. If the 23-year-old is limited at all or forced to sit out, J.D. McKissic would immediately be a starting fantasy option, especially in PPR formats. Rookie Jaret Patterson would also likely see a bigger backfield role. Gibson didn't do much on the ground last week, but he saved his day with a 73-yard touchdown catch. He'll be a must-start midrange RB1 on Sunday if he's active.

  • Antonio Gibson Not Practicing Thursday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (undisclosed) is not practicing on Thursday after suiting up on Wednesday. It could just be a rest day for the team's lead running back, but we'll know more later. Gibson has been on the injury early this year with a shoulder injury that he suffered in Week 1, but it hasn't kept him from playing at all. In a tough matchup with the Buffalo Bills last week, the 23-year-old had only 12 carries for 31 yards but salvaged his day for fantasy managers with a 73-yard touchdown reception. He combined for 159 yards rushing in the first two games, though, and will be a low-end RB1 against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend if he plays. J.D. McKissic would be start-worthy this weekend if Gibson cannot play for some reason.

  • Antonio Gibson Scores 73-Yard Touchdown

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson salvaged a potential lackluster performance with a 73-yard receiving touchdown in Sunday's 43-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Gibson added 31 rushing yards on 12 carries for a total of 104 scrimmage yards in this one. The game script did no favors for the 23-year-old, so fantasy managers can expect him to be handling a more significant workload in the future. Gibson has a much more encouraging matchup in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons. His workload should be reminiscent of Week 1 where he handled a total of 23 touches (20 carries) as Atlanta has one of the weaker run defenses in the league.

  • Antonio Gibson Good To Go Sunday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) will be in the lineup on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Gibson had to deal with this nagging issue prior to the Week 2 Thursday night game as well, so the short week was potentially the main reason he had his workload somewhat lightened. The 23-year-old is in for a tough matchup in Week 3, but he is still a must-start in all formats. With 10 days of rest, his workload should be reminiscent of Week 1 where he handled 23 touches. J.D. McKissic figures to see some passing work and a few rushing opportunities, but the former Memphis star is still a lower-end RB1 or a high-end RB2 for this game.

  • Antonio Gibson Returns To Full Practice

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Washington was likely just giving Gibson a breather on Wednesday for a nagging injury that he's been dealing with early in the season. The second-year back dominated the backfield touches in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but pass-catching back J.D. McKissic was more involved in last Thursday's win over the New York Giants. Still, Gibson is the clear leader of this backfield, and his value could increase with Taylor Heinicke now the starting quarterback. He'll have a tough draw against a strong Bills defensive line in Week 3, but Gibson's usage alone should make him a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 most weeks.

  • Antonio Gibson Limited In Practice Wednesday

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday ahead of the Week 3 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. It's the same injury that had Gibson on the injury report before the season opener, but he has played in both games so far and has led the backfield work with 33 carries for 159 yards (4.8 yards per carry) while also adding five catches on seven targets for 22 yards. The 22-year-old's practice status should be watched the rest of the week, but barring some sort of setback, he should be available for fantasy managers as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2. On the down side, Buffalo's defense has allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to running backs per game in the first two weeks of the season.

  • Antonio Gibson Looks To Bounce Back

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson will look to bounce back after a less than inspiring fantasy performance in Week 2 where he finished with just 73 total yards and no touchdowns. Unfortunately, touchdowns might be hard to come by once again as he goes against the stingy Buffalo defense that has given up just 23 points in the first two games of the season. Gibson may need to find the end zone in this one to salvage a rough day on the ground, as the Bills have given up just 73 rushing yards per game to this point. The Washington defense should keep the game within reach for a positive rushing game script, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the Bills go up early and force Taylor Heinicke to throw the ball. The 23-year-old is a lower-end RB1 or strong RB2 in this game.

  • Antonio Gibson Rushes For 69 Yards

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson carried the ball 13 times for 69 yards and added two receptions for four yards against the New York Giants on Thursday night. The sophomore got a touchdown opportunity taken away by J.D. McKissic, so this ultimately led to him having a quiet night for fantasy managers. Gibson dealt with a shoulder injury leading up to Week 2, so it shouldn't be a surprise that his workload was a bit lighter than usual considering it was a short week. Going forward, he should be averaging closer to the 20 carries that he handled in Week 1. The 23-year-old is still a rock-solid RB1 and should see some more opportunities in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Gibson made his way to the injury report this week with a shoulder injury, but was fully expected to suit up tonight and it's now official that he will. Gibson remains the main option in Washington's backfield and will draw a good matchup versus the New York Giants defense tonight. Gibson should be locked in as a RB1 in Week 2 and managers should feel confident with his health moving forward. Offensive lineman Saahdiq Charles, cornerback Darryl Roberts, defensive end Shaka Toney and tight end Sammis Reyes will be inactive tonight for the Washington Football Team.

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) is a full participant in practice on Wednesday and is no longer listed on the injury report for Thursday night's game against the division-rival New York Giants. Gibson was heavily utilized in the Week 1 season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, playing 65.5 percent of the offensive snaps while carrying the ball 20 times for 90 yards. He also caught three of his five targets for an additional 18 yards. Rookie Jaret Petterson had just two carries, while last year's fantasy darling J.D. McKissic had only one carry and wasn't targeted at all in the passing game. In a better matchup against the Giants defense, Gibson should be a locked-and-loaded RB1.

Gibson suffered a bruised left shoulder in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He was limited in practice on Monday, but a return to a full practice on Tuesday puts him on track to suit up in a quick turnaround on Thursday night against the New York Giants. The second-year back was utilized heavily in the season-opener, running the ball 20 times for 90 yards while also catching three of his five targets for an additional 18 yards. Gibson's utilization alone as the workhorse in Washington's backfield makes him a must-start RB1 in Week 2.

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson could be in for a huge workload in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Thursday night. The sophomore was leaned on quite a bit in Week 1, as he turned 23 touches into 108 scrimmage yards. With Taylor Heinicke under center, the Washington offense could increase the usage of Gibson if they don't want to give their new starting quarterback the green light to sling it all over the field. Heinicke's rushing ability could open up some more lanes for Gibson, and the strong Washington defense will likely give the rushing attack a positive game script. The 23-year-old is a locked and loaded RB1 for Week 2 as he won't be short of volume.

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) said he has a "little bruise" on his left shoulder. Doctors looked at Gibson on the sideline during the team's Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, and he's listed as limited on the team's estimated practice report on Monday. It sounds like a very minor injury, so fantasy managers shouldn't have any reason to suspect that Gibson may not be available for Week 2 on a short week against the New York Giants on Thursday night. Minor injury aside, the 23-year-old's usage in the season opener was very encouraging for fantasy managers. Gibson had 20 carries for 90 yards and added three catches for 18 yards. He'll be a must-start in Week 2 as long as he doesn't suffer a setback at practice this week.

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson had a solid showing in Week 1 as he finished with 20 carries for 90 yards and added three receptions for 18 yards. With Ryan Fitzpatrick exiting the game early, the Washington offense leaned on the run more than expected. If Fitzpatrick were to miss some time, Taylor Heinicke could potentially open some more running lanes for the sophomore running back. The 23-year-old will remain a lower-end RB1 no matter who is the signal-caller for the Washington offense, and he should once again be leaned on heavily in Week 2 against the New York Giants.

  • Antonio Gibson In For Large Workload Week 1?

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson should be getting a large workload in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, in what should be a low-scoring affair between two stout defenses. The Chargers allowed the 15th-most rushing yards per game in 2020, so Gibson has a fairly promising outlook for this matchup. Washington's elite defense will likely keep a favorable game script in this matchup, so Gibson can be deployed into fantasy lineups as an RB1 option. Going forward, the 23-year-old is a set-and-forget player for fantasy managers as he is Washington's clear No. 1 option as a ball-carrier and should have an increased role as a receiver.

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson has set some lofty goals to achieve in the 2021 season. In a recent interview, the 23-year-old told Ty Dunne that he has his sights set on 1,200 yards rushing with 12+ touchdowns and 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Gibson has generated a lot of hype this offseason and has been identified by many as the next breakout fantasy running back. In what should be an improved offense this season, the former Memphis standout has the potential to vault into the elite class of running backs in 2021. The sophomore should have an increased role as a receiver and will be the team's go-to option in short-yardage situations after Peyton Barber was released. Gibson should have some favorable game scripts because of Washington's elite defense, so fantasy managers can expect some more consistency this season. For now, he can be considered a lower-end RB1 in fantasy with the potential for more.

  • Antonio Gibson Says Sophomore Season Will Be "Something Special"

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson has been identified by many as a potential breakout player heading into his second year as a pro. In a recent interview, Gibson said he has his eyes on "something special" as he will be relied on to carry the load in the Washington backfield this season. The 23-year-old has a lot of confidence in himself because of his dual-threat ability as a rusher and pass-catcher, which is the main reason why he has the potential to be considered an elite running back. "I make the extra cut. I'm not scared to make somebody miss in the backfield, and then try to get north. That's what puts me over the edge of a lot of folks," said Gibson. The former Memphis standout can put up RB1 numbers for fantasy managers this season, as he will be the centerpiece of a much-improved offense. With the departure of Peyton Barber, there will be more of an opportunity for carries close to the goal-line for Gibson.

  • Jaret Patterson Could Backup Antonio Gibson

    Washington Football Team running back Jaret Patterson will backup Antonio Gibsonto start the 2021 season.The team recently cut Peyton Barber, which free's up more snaps for Patterson. In the preseason games for Washington, J.D. McKissic was featured only as a receiver. He will likely have a bigger role in receiving passes rather than running the ball from the backfield. Patterson had 28 carries, 110 yards, and one touchdown. If preseason play has any indication of how the depth chart will look like during the regular season, Patterson will be the second running back in the depth chart, and McKissic could be listed as a WR and third in the running back depth chart. It remains to be seen how Washington utilizes those two players, but Patterson has some redraft value in the late rounds based on his presumed role.

Gibson carried the ball seven times for 28 yards and added two receptions for 19 yards. It was encouraging to see the sophomore's usage in this game, as he is clearly the primary ball-carrier and got involved in the passing game. The 23-year-old could be used in a variety of different ways when the regular season begins, as reports out of camp have been that head coach Ron Rivera envisions a role similar to that of Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey. The former Memphis standout could put up lower-end RB1 numbers, so fantasy managers should draft him with confidence in the second round.

Gibson rushed 170 times for 795 yards and 11 touchdowns last year, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. This year, according to Washington head coach Ron Rivera, Gibson is more comfortable at running back than he was last year. Gibson seemed to agree with Rivera, telling the media, "I'm coming along well. Last year I wasn't where I needed to be. This year, it's about having your eyes in the right spot." Gibson has a lot of upside and as such, he's a fantastic target in the late second round or early third round of drafts.

  • Antonio Gibson Showing Improved Vision And Explosiveness

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson is heading into his sophomore season as the team's unquestioned number one option in the running game after his impressive rookie campaign. Gibson had to deal with a turf toe injury that limited his explosiveness and his ability to make cuts at a high level. After Gibson and head coach Ron Rivera reassured everyone that the turf toe will no longer limit him, Gibson can have a true breakout season in year two. Team Reporter Zach Selby noted that Gibson has improved his vision and burst upfield while watching him participate in red-zone drills. After playing primarily as a receiver in college, Gibson is starting to learn the little things that translate into being a successful running back in the NFL. In what will be a much improved Washington offense, Gibson has RB1 upside while going in the second round of fantasy drafts. By the end of preseason, Gibson's ADP could rise into the first round.

  • Antonio Gibson Maturing As a Running Back

    Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson had an impressive rookie season when he served as the team's primary ball-carrier. After playing mostly as a receiver in college, this past season was all that more impressive. "Last year was still a learning process for me, I got the hang of it as the season went on and I started showing progress. I feel like I should be able to show a lot of different things this year," Gibson said. Heading into 2021, Gibson will look to improve as both a runner and pass-catcher, as he'll be leaned on more in all situations. "You can tell he's matured, he has a better feel and understanding," head coach Ron Rivera said. He should have no issue reaching 1,000 rushing yards and can easily catch 50 passes with a more expanded role as a receiver. When you pair this with the potential for more touchdown opportunities in Scott Turner's offense, Gibson has RB1 upside in 2021.
