Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gibson is one of the most intriguing RB2-types heading into the 2022 season. After an RB13 finish in 2020, he finished RB12 in 2021, but was 20th on a per game basis. He was 10th in touches per game (18.5) and his offensive line is a top-12 unit according to our offensive line guru, Justin Edwards. So why is the 24-year-old Gibson the RB23 off the board in early drafts? Well, J.D. McKissic is back after briefly committing to the Bills, and Gibson’s targets were significantly higher (4.4 vs. 2.7 per game) when McKissic missed five games last season. The Commanders also drafted Brian Robinson in the third round and HC Ron Rivera is now waxing nostalgic about his days in Carolina when he had the 1-2 punch of Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams. If Gibson is able to maintain 18+ touches per game, then he’ll be a screaming value at his current sixth-round ADP, but there are enough workload questions here to push him toward the bottom of the RB2 rankings in what’s shaping up to be a pretty deep year at the position.

Scouting report

WAS RB Antonio Gibson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

UPDATE: Gibson has been placed on the team's COVID/Reserve list so he's out this week. Jaret Patterson should get the bulk of the touches in Gibson's absence.

Antonio Gibson was active last week after entering the matchup with a questionable tag, but he didn't end up playing a lot as the game got out of hand fast. Thankfully for fantasy owners, Gibson was able to finish with 58 scrimmage yards and a touchdown before exiting. He's questionable again heading into Week 17 as he deals with an apparently new hip injury (he was previously dealing with a toe injury). He was limited Wednesday before being downgraded Thursday with a DNP. He's been injured all year, so we'd expect him to eventually be active Sunday, but his health will be worth monitoring throughout the week. If he is active, he gets a favorable matchup vs. the Eagles who have given up the 10th-most average fantasy points to running backs. Gibson finished with 65 scrimmage yards and a touchdown when he played the Eagles just a few weeks ago, including a six-reception performance. Assuming he's healthy enough to play, Gibson will be a solid RB2 play in Week 17.
