  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Weak usage in loss

    Gibson ran for 49 yards on 13 carries and caught three passes on three targets for 14 yards against Dallas on Sunday. It's not clear why, but Washington gave five carries to Jonathan Williams and eight to J.D. McKissic as it lost by 15 points. Gibson doesn't seem to have much traction in the Washington offense despite doing reasonably well with the scattered chances he gets, and Brian Robinson's pending return certainly won't help his cause.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Scores garbage-time touchdown

    Gibson ran for 38 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries while also bringing in his sole target for two yards against Philadelphia on Sunday. Washington once again neglected to utilize Gibson as a pass catcher, giving him just one target that resulted in a two-yard reception. After catching seven passes for 72 yards on eight targets in Week 1, Gibson has just three receptions for 15 yards on five targets since. Washington won the first game but lost the last two, so perhaps the Commanders might try to get Gibson going more as a pass catcher going forward. It's not clear when Brian Robinson might return to the Washington backfield, nor is it clear how Washington might split up the usage at that point.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Quiet besides fourth-quarter TD

    Gibson rushed 14 times for 28 yards and a touchdown while catching two of four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 36-27 loss to the Lions. Gibson was bottled up for most of the game but salvaged his afternoon with a one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Washington was playing catch-up all game but didn't utilize Gibson extensively as a pass catcher out of the backfield after he caught seven passes for 72 yards in the season opener. He remains locked into the lead role in the Commanders' backfield heading into a Week 3 matchup with the Eagles.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: RBs to Start

    Antonio Gibson will be a quality starter for as long as Brian Robinson Jr. (knee) remains out, which will be for at least three more games. In Week 1 against Jacksonville, Gibson had 14 carries for 58 yards, along with seven catches for 72 yards on eight targets. That's tremendous production, and it's great to see him so heavily involved in the passing game. The Lions run defense allowed 216 yards and four touchdowns to the Eagles in Week 1, so Gibson has top-10 upside in all leagues for Week 2.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Racks up 130 total yards

    Gibson rushed 14 times for 58 yards and caught seven of eight targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 28-22 win over the Jaguars. Gibson turned in a solid effort on the ground (4.1 yards per carry), and the career-high eight targets were a welcome surprise for his fantasy managers. We previously reported (Aug. 20) that the power back was getting some extra work as a receiver this preseason to round out his skill set, so the spike in targets may not be an anomaly. Gibson should continue to dominate the running back touches in Washington, especially while rookie Brian Robinson (knee) mends on the reserve/non-football injury list (he is eligible to return Week 5 if healthy).

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Bust Candidate (Lineup Decisions)

    Gibson's bust potential makes him a sit compared to Chase Edmonds or Kareem Hunt, but a start in front of similarly unpredictable backs like Clyde Edwards-Helaire or Cam Akers.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Start 'Em

    With Brian Robinson Jr. (lower body) on the NFI list and out for the first four weeks of the season, Gibson should get plenty of touches as the lead running back in Washington. J.D. McKissic will also play a role on passing downs, and he's worth using as a sleeper in PPR this week against Jacksonville. But Gibson should be a must-start option in all leagues, and hopefully he doesn't fumble away his chance to get back in the good graces of his coaching staff. The Commanders were ready to replace Gibson with Robinson, but now Gibson could get 20-plus touches in a favorable matchup. Last season, the Jaguars were top five in rushing touchdowns allowed to running backs with 17.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Set to face Jaguars in Week 1

    As the Commanders' Week 1 contest against the Jaguars approaches, Gibson is in line to lead a backfield that is also slated to include J.D. McKissic and Jonathan Williams early on this season, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Rookie third-round draft choice Brian Robinson, who had been a candidate to see his share of backfield touches to begin the season, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list by the Commanders on Thursday and will miss at least the team's first four games. Against the Jaguars, look for Gibson to reprise the starting role he held last season, with McKissic in line to see work in the passing game and Williams on hand for complementary snaps.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Not slated to play Saturday

    Gibson isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game at Baltimore. Joining Gibson on the sideline are fellow Commanders running backs J.D. McKissic (groin), Brian Robinson and Jonathan Williams. With just about none of the team's regular skill-position players in line to suit up in the exhibition finale, that quartert seems poised to survive roster cuts Tuesday. That said, Gibson's ultimate workload is in question due to the impressive showing by the rookie Robinson during the preseason.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Becoming jack of all trades

    Gibson rushed twice for three yards and caught three of four targets for 37 yards in Saturday's 24-14 loss to Kansas City. He also returned the opening kickoff 17 yards. Gibson worked in a change-of-pace role with the first-team offense, but it notably was rookie Brian Robinson who got the start and most of the playing time over that span. Gibson stayed in the game after backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke came in, playing an instrumental role as a pass catcher as Heinicke led Washington's only touchdown drive of the first half. Robinson looks like the favorite for most of the rushing work on early downs, while the impending return of J.D. McKissic (groin) will cut into Gibson's usage in passing situations, so the Commanders are trying to get the ball into Gibson's hands more by using him in the return game. Fellow converted wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson has shown that it's possible to deliver substantial fantasy production in a miscellaneous playmaking role, but Gibson's path to touches is much more complicated now than it was last season.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Practicing with special teams units

    Gibson took snaps with the punt return team at Tuesday's practice, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Fortier adds that Gibson's spot on the unit (slot protector) has mostly been handled by rookie Brian Robinson, the third-round pick who shined in the preseason opener with the first-team offense after Gibson lost a fumble on the second drive. There had already been talk of Robinson stealing short-yardage work prior to training camp, and it now seems the rookie has a shot at more than that. Fortier notes that Tuesday's practice was an odd one for Gibson, as he got special teams work and took some third-team offense snaps during a drill but then finished things out with the first-team offense during install. While it's premature to declare his starting job lost, Gibson will be one of the top players to monitor for the rest of the summer, including this Saturday in a preseason matchup with Kansas City.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Fumbles against Panthers

    Gibson carried the ball two times for four yards and caught his only target for two yards in Saturday's 23-21 preseason loss to the Panthers. Gibson didn't make much of his limited opportunity and also fumbled deep in Washington's own territory to end the team's second offensive possession. He re-entered the game with the second-team offense but added little to his stat line. It's unclear what this performance means for Gibson's potential to contribute during the regular season, but rookie Brian Robinson tallied six carries for 26 yards and a touchdown.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: No issues with hamstring so far

    Gibson (hamstring) followed his ramp-up plan for the first week of training camp and now has resumed practicing with teammates, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. It sounds like Gibson has avoided any setbacks with the hamstring injury that limited his participation in spring practices. He also mentioned dropping a few pounds, going from the mid-230s to low 230s, though the Commanders listed him at 220 both last season and this year. Gibson reportedly wants to get down to 220-225 before Week 1, which especially makes sense if rumors of rookie Brian Robinson stealing short-yardage work are to be believed. Gibson was the team's grinder last year, and it might actually work in his favor if he trades some inside runs for outside runs and/or receptions. On the other hand, losing goal-line work would be an obvious problem for fantasy, and the receiving ceiling is probably around three catches per game unless passing-down back J.D. McKissic is eventually injured or phased out.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Could lose goal-line carries?

    Gibson (hamstring) may cede short-yardage work to rookie Brian Robinson, who has been getting a lot of first-team snaps in the opening days of training camp, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Gibson's absence due to the hamstring injury is obviously a factor, but the report suggests Robinson would have a role with the starters even if Washington's No. 1 back didn't have any injury concerns. Gibson has been bothered by his hamstring since June 7/8, with coach Ron Rivera suggesting Wednesday that the 24-year-old will ramp up his workload on the side before rejoining teammates in practice. It sounds like the team still expects Gibson to be fine for Week 1, but we need only look at Curtis Samuel last season to remember that soft-tissue injuries always need to be monitored carefully.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Needs to ramp up before practicing

    Head coach Ron Rivera said Gibson (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday due to "an abundance of caution," with the Commanders planning to ramp up his workload on the side field before he joins his teammates for drills, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports. Gibson injured his hamstring at OTAs and missed some of the later sessions. His absence from early training camp practices leaves more reps for passing-down specialist J.D. McKissic, third-round pick Brian Robinson and second-year pro Jaret Patterson. The Commanders may be extra cautious after last year's experience with Curtis Samuel picking up a soft-tissue injury during the offseason.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Opens training camp on side field

    Gibson (hamstring) was spotted working out on a side field Wednesday during the first day of Washington's veteran training camp, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. Gibson may still be nursing the hamstring injury which caused him to miss a bit of time during OTAs, an issue which coach Ron Rivera downplayed at the time. The Commanders aren't yet practicing in pads, so it's too early to raise any alarms, but Gibson's status will warrant monitoring as training camp continues. In the meantime, rookie third-round pick Brian Robinson could continue to see an uptick of first-team reps.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Picks up minor hamstring injury

    Gibson suffered a minor hamstring injury during OTAs on Wednesday, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports. Head coach Ron Rivera used the word "slightly" to downplay the severity of Gibson's hamstring issue, so there's not yet any reason for significant worry about the possibility of the running back missing any portion of mandatory minicamp. Of course, considering the delicate nature of hamstring injuries, the Commanders will likely refrain from rushing Gibson back out on the field. In the meantime, rookie third-round pick Brian Robinson could benefit from increased reps with the first-team offense.

  • Commanders' Antonio Gibson: Competition for carries increases

    Coach Ron Rivera said Thursday he hopes Gibson and rookie third-round pick Brian Robinson will operate as a "potential 1-2 punch," Grant Paulsen of The Athletic reports. Rivera likened the new backfield tandem of Gibson and Robinson to Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams, who operated as a formidable duo during his time as the Panthers' head coach. Gibson was already primed have his receiving upside limited by pass-catching complement J.D. McKissic, who opted to stick around in Washington, and it now looks like he isn't a complete lock to dominate the bulk of work between the tackles. While Gibson remains entrenched atop the depth chart, having rushed for 1,037 yards and seven touchdowns through 16 games last year, his fantasy outlook will take a notable hit if Rivera indeed deploys a three-headed backfield committee for the 2022 season.

  • Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Limited in practice with hip injury

    Gibson was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hip injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Gibson has dealt with toe and hip injuries of late after playing through a shin stress fracture for most of the season, but his only absence of the campaign came in the Week 17 loss to Philadelphia after he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Jaret Patterson stepped up with Gibson out last Sunday, taking 17 touches for 98 yards and a touchdown while playing 62 percent of snaps on offense. After being activated from the list earlier Wednesday, Gibson tentatively appears on track to play Week 18 against the Giants, though he could cede more work to Patterson as the Football Team aims to preserve his health heading into the offseason.
