  • Lions Rumors: Gambling, Joseph, Gibbs

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    After the Lions were hit with multiple suspensions in April for player gambling violations and the announcement that the NFL was still investigating for further violations, Detroit has decided to take matters into its own hands, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive. The Lions are working to provide their players with a self-imposed supplemental education […]

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Getting First-Team Reps

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs has been receiving first-team reps with the offense during OTAs. The Lions selected Gibbs with the 12th overall pick during this year's draft. He was expected to split the first-team reps, but now the rookie has a head start to the starting job. Fellow running back David Montgomery (leg) is sidelined, so Gibbs is getting all the starter reps. That being said, Gibbs is likely to be the Week 1 starter, which is only going to increase his fantasy value.

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Misses Saturday's Rookie Camp

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs (ankle) didn't participate in Saturday's rookie minicamp because of an ankle injury. Fortunately, assistant general manager Ray Agnew described it as a "tweak" while adding it's a "slight" injury. There should be an update on Gibbs' condition on Sunday. However, the club will likely be cautious with the first-round pick. But for now, his fantasy stock won't be impacted.

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Could Be Three-Down Back

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    NFL Films senior producer Greg Cosell believes that rookie running back Jahmyr Gibbs, whom the Lions took at No. 12 overall in the first round of this year's NFL draft, can become a three-down back for the team. "Gibbs' 2021 Georgia Tech tape and 2022 Alabama tape showed a back with high-level traits and a complete skill set to be a three-down back at the next level. While it is not likely he will be a foundation volume runner at the next level, Gibbs showed the explosive traits that get coaches excited with both sudden lateral agility and quickness in confined space and smooth and fluid almost subtle shiftiness at the second and third levels of the defense to make defenders miss without losing quickness and speed," Cosell said. With D'Andre Swift now gone, Gibbs will at least be Detroit's pass-game back in his rookie season, and he eventually could take over primary duties from David Montgomery by season's end.

  • David Montgomery To Share Backfield With Jahmyr Gibbs

    Headshot for David Montgomery

    With Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift now the odd man out in the team's backfield, rookie Jahmyr Gibbs will now share the backfield with free-agent addition David Montgomery. Gibbs was a dynamic all-purpose back at Alabama in 2022 and at Georgia Tech before that, and the Lions think he can play a similar role in the NFL. He can flex out wide as a receiver, line up in the slot or play from the backfield. It makes more sense for Detroit to shop Swift, and teams are already calling about his availability after the Lions took Gibbs with the No. 12 overall pick on Thursday night. The 25-year-old Montgomery will serve as more of a between-the-tackles, short-yardage, goal-line guy in his first year in Detroit.

    The Lions made some surprising picks on Day 1 of the draft, a two-investment effort that began with running back Jahmyr Gibbs at No. 12 overall. As a result, D’Andre Swift‘s time in the Motor City might be coming to an end. Detroit’s Gibbs pick has prompted teams to contact the Lions regarding a trade, […]

  • Lions Would Have Taken Jahmyr Gibbs At No. 6

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    The Detroit Lions would have been comfortable drafting running back Jahmyr Gibbs at No. 6 overall, their original spot in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Instead, the Lions traded back with the Arizona Cardinals to add more draft capital and got Gibbs at No. 12 overall instead. The talented and explosive running back has the potential to be a difference-maker in offensive coordinator Ben Johnson's offense immediately, but things could get complicated as far as tough distribution if the Lions wind up entering the 2023 season with all three of Gibbs, D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery in their backfield. The Lions are already receiving trade calls on Swift.

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Projected To Be Lions' Lead Back

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    The Detroit Lions surprisingly took Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs with the No. 12 overall pick in the first round of Thursday night's NFL draft. How he fits in Detroit's backfield will be interesting with D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery already in the fold. It's hard to know exactly what the team's long-term play is, but The Athletic's Diante Lee writes that we can assume that Gibbs is projected to be the lead back. Gibbs led the Crimson Tide in rushing, receptions and kick-return yards in 2022. He's a dynamic talent with the ball in his hands in space, and it's hard to imagine him sitting on the bench too much in his rookie year. The 21-year-old will be more attractive in PPR leagues right away, but it's hard to get too excited about him in fantasy in this crowded Lions backfield.

    Jahmyr Gibbs saw his draft stock rise in recent weeks, and that culminated in him being selected with the No. 12 pick. The Lions have used their selection on the Alabama running back.

  • Lions Add Jahmyr Gibbs To Crowded Backfield

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    The Lions selected Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs with the No. 12 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The 21-year-old appeared in 12 games for the Crimson Tide last season, running for 926 yards and seven touchdowns off 151 carries while adding 44 catches for 444 yards and three more scores. It's obvious he has more than enough talent to be successful at the professional level. However, the Lions have D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery on the depth chart, leaving Gibbs with little room to make an immediate impact on the fantasy end.

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Could Go In Round 1

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay would be surprised at this point if Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs wasn't taken in the first round of this year's NFL draft on Thursday night. Many teams are asking about him, and some NFL clubs don't have that big of a gap between Texas RB Bijan Robinson and Gibbs, which is telling because Robinson is a star. Gibbs is only 5-foot-9 and 199 pounds and isn't believed to be a heavy-volume back, but he can still make a very big impact in his rookie season in the right situation. NFL teams might be thinking about drafting Gibbs and giving him snaps out of the slot due to this year's down wide receiver class. For that reason, the 21-year-old will probably be more valuable in PPR leagues in 2023.

    Throughout the pre-draft process, Bijan Robinson has been rated as a first-round lock given his status as not only the top running back available, but one of the best prospects at any position. He might not be the only tailback to hear his name called on Day 1, though. Jahmyr Gibbs has increasingly generated first-round buzz […]

  • Jahmyr Gibbs Visiting With Buccaneers

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    University of Alabama do-everything running back Jahmyr Gibbs is visiting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday, according to a source. The Buccaneers are content with running backs Rachaad White, Chase Edmonds, Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Patrick Laird, but it shouldn't rule them out of taking Gibbs in the first round at No. 19 overall if he's still on the board. Tampa moved on from veteran Leonard Fournette this offseason, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise if they look to add another RB early in this year's draft. Gibbs is widely considered the No. 2 RB prospect in this draft, behind only Texas' Bijan Robinson. He had 151 carries for 926 yards for the Crimson Tide in 2022 and added 44 receptions for 444 yards while scoring 10 total touchdowns.

  • Eagles Could Go After Jahmyr Gibbs In The Draft

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    The Philadelphia Eagles are unlikely to draft Texas running back Bijan Robinson, the consensus No. 1 RB in this year's draft. In his 12 previous drafts, general manager Howie Roseman has never taken a running back in the first round. While they probably won't take an RB at No. 10 overall in the first round, RB remains a position of interest for the Eagles heading into the draft. There's no clearer path to playing time in Philly than at RB with Kenneth Gainwell the top back currently. Rashaad Penny has never played a full season due to injuries. Alabama's Jahmyr Gibbs makes the most sense with the profile of a third-down back late in the first round or early in the second round for Philly. Other options include Devon Achane, Zach Charbonnet, Tyjae Spears, Tank Bigsby and Roschon Johnson.

  • Bengals Best Fit For Jahmyr Gibbs?

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    According to Sports Illustrated's Gilberto Manzano, the Bengals may be the best fit for Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs. The 21-year-old is considered the second-best running back available behind Texas' Bijan Robinson, even though his lack of size is a concern. However, his pass-catching prowess makes him the perfect choice for the Bengals, especially if the team decides to move on from Joe Mixon. If Gibbs ends up in Cincinnati, he'll have the luxury of playing in one of the most explosive offenses in the National Football League, with his fantasy value skyrocketing if Mixon isn't in the picture. But Cincinnati has the No. 28 overall selection, so it's unknown if he'll be available that late.

  • Patriots Interested In Drafting Blue-Chip Back

    Headshot for Jahmyr Gibbs

    The Athletic's Jeff Howe writes that the New England Patriots have quietly shown interest in adding another blue-chip back in this year's draft as they build their running game around Rhamondre Stevenson. There are really only two blue-chip backs in this year's draft in Texas' Bijan Robinson (projected first-rounder) and Alabama's Jahmyr Gibbs, who is projected to be a top-40 pick. So if the Pats indeed are serious about adding one of them, they'll have to take them early on. New England has the 14th overall pick later this month, which could be prime territory to select Robinson. Gibbs obviously would make a lot of sense after working with Pats new offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien in college. Stevenson's fantasy value would take a hit if the Pats selected Robinson or Gibbs early in the draft.
