Antonio Gibson Salvages Bad Game With Late Touchdown rotoballer.com Sun 9/25/22 9:11 PM

Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson had 12 carries for 38 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The third-year pro was the victim of a second straight negative game script as Washington again fell behind quickly in the first half. This Washington offense is already pass-happy, but once they get behind, there will be little production from the running game. Luckily for fantasy managers, Gibson scored another late touchdown to make his scoring output ...

Antonio Gibson Could Be In For A Rough Game Script rotoballer.com Fri 9/23/22 6:45 PM

Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson might be in line for a disappointing performance in Week 3. The 24-year-old has been seeing the majority of Washington's backfield opportunities with Brian Robinson still in recovery, and that trend should continue in their matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the concerning aspect of this matchup is the prolific Eagles offense that might put the Commanders behind early. If the Eagles get out to an early lead, Gibson's ...

Antonio Gibson Scores In Week 2 Loss rotoballer.com Sun 9/18/22 9:57 PM

Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson had 14 carries for 28 yards and one touchdown along with two receptions for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. After a successful Week 1 where he was used often as a receiver, the 24-year-old saw his multidimensional upside slip away as J.D. McKissic reclaimed his receiving back role in Week 2. The issue with this backfield is that the running back touches are fairly game script-dependent. Against the Lions, the Commanders were in ...

Week 2 IDP Fantasy Football Rankings rotoballer.com Fri 9/16/22 12:01 PM

We say this every year, but man, that Week 1 was weird! We saw potential stars unexpectedly benched (Kadarius Toney and Cam Akers). We saw numerous fantasy-relevant QBs play like they were passing kidney stones (Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, Tom Brady, Trey Lance, etc.). We also saw some of the highest drafted players in all of fantasy perform just adequately (Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, etc.). At the same time, a guy who seemingly lost his job just weeks ago (Antonio Gibson) ...

Ron Rivera Trusts Antonio Gibson rotoballer.com Thu 9/8/22 2:09 PM

Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson still has the trust of his head coach despite some fumbling issues during the preseason and training camp. When asked how he plans to use Gibson, Ron Rivera said, "we're going to give him the football and I have no issue with that." The third-year back will be the lead runner for at least the first four weeks of the season as Brian Robinson Jr. (leg) was placed on the non-football injury list ahead of the team's season opener. Gibson should see...

Antonio Gibson To Be Top Kick Returner? rotoballer.com Thu 8/25/22 9:11 PM

Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera seemed to name running back Antonio Gibson as the team's top kick returner this year. "You still need to see some more stuff, but you know, I think he is. I do. I think he's done a nice job," Rivera said. Gibson's fantasy stock has been falling basically all offseason, especially since rookie Brian Robinson has looked impressive in training camp. Veteran J.D. McKissic will continue to steal third-down work in Washington as well. The fact that Gibson...

Running Back Draft Bargains - Fantasy Football ADP Arbitrage: Josh ... rotoballer.com Sun 8/21/22 11:22 PM

Did your parents ever ask you, "If all your friends jumped off a cliff, does that mean you would too?" Well, that is how fantasy football mostly works when it comes to drafting your team yearly. There is something called ADP (Average Draft Position) that is nothing more than just an aggregated mark that lets us know where a player is being drafted on average. Oh, and although most folks take it asgospeland follow the crowd like lemmings, you shouldn't do so.While ADP is very informative and can ...

Washington Wants Antonio Gibson To Be More Decisive rotoballer.com Tue 8/16/22 2:13 PM

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 ...

Antonio Gibson Working With Punt Team rotoballer.com Tue 8/16/22 12:06 PM

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 ...
