Draft note
by John Paulsen
2020 4for4 subscribers will remember that Gibson was our biggest draft day value at the running back position for much of the summer, at least until his ADP caught up with the release of Derrius Guice. He turned in a No. 12 fantasy finish (half-PPR) despite a 44% snap share and finishing 27th in touches per game at his position. For most backs, this lack of playing time and/or usage would be worrisome, but not for Gibson, who was playing the position full-time for the first time. This offseason, Washington has already revealed that it wants to get him more involved as a receiver (36 catches last year), while the coaching staff has said that Gibson’s improvement is like “night and day” compared to last year and that they expect a “big jump” in 2021 production. Washington also projects to have one of the best offensive line units in the league.

WAS RB Antonio Gibson - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Antonio Gibson had a solid rookie season, finishing with 1,042 scrimmage yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games. He did this despite averaging just 43% of the offensive snaps in games he played. Gibson finished the year as the 12th-highest scoring fantasy RB (half-PPR) and has room for improvement if his role gets expanded. ESPN’s John Keim said Washington would “like to expand his game to have him run more routes,” which would be a huge boost. Gibson played receiver in college, but only had 36 receptions as a rookie. An increase in receiving stats could put Gibson into the top 10 scorers at RB this year.

Fantasy Downside
J.D. McKissic led all running backs with 110 targets last season, finishing with 80 receptions for 589 receiving yards. McKissic ate up a lot of the targets fantasy owners expected Gibson to receive, and with him returning this season we could see that happening again. And while Gibson was productive last season, a lot of his success came against a bad defense. He tore up the Cowboys twice for a combined 243 yards, which amounted to 30.57% of his total rushing yards (they were also his only two 100+ yard rushing games).

2021 Bottom Line
Everything is pointing to an improved season for Gibson, who already finished as a top 12 scorer at his position as a rookie. We’re expecting an increased role, mostly in the passing game, which should lead to more overall production. Gibson is no longer a sleeper option you can pick up past the fifth round. Instead, his ADP is in the early second round, which makes sense given his opportunity. Gibson has a chance to enter the top 10 scorers at running back this year.
