Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gibson is one of my favorite rookie running backs to target given the incumbent (Derrius Guice, who has missed 27 games in the last two seasons), his double-digit ADP and the fact that new HC Ron Rivera compared his skill set to Christian McCaffrey’s. He averaged 15.6 yards per touch last year and led all skill players in yards after contact per attempt (8.0). He’s built more like a running back, so it will be interesting to see what sort of role he’s able to carve out in his first season.

WAS RB Antonio Gibson - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Antonio Gibson was a third-round draft pick by Washington this season and head coach Ron Rivera has already compared him to Christian McCaffrey. Rivera said of Gibson, "This is a very versatile, young football player that we really think is going to be a guy that can get on the field for us early and contribute." Gibson mostly played receiver in college, but he’s built more as a running back, which is what he’ll most likely play as a rookie. Still, that receiver background makes him an intriguing option in Washington. And with Derrius Guice’s injury history, we could see Gibson getting more playing time than most expect in 2020.

Fantasy Downside
It’s difficult to figure out where Gibson fits into Washington’s plans. Washington already has Guice, Adrian Peterson and even Bryce Love in this crowded backfield. They even added Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic, two players who were relevant in fantasy just last year. And while Gibson played some running back in college at Memphis, playing running back at the professional level is a completely different thing. There’s simply a lot we don’t know about Gibson.

2020 Bottom Line
Gibson is a very intriguing fantasy option heading into 2020. The McCaffrey comparison is exciting, although it’d be a stretch to expect McCaffrey production from Gibson. However it’s not a stretch to see Washington use him as an overall offensive weapon, featuring him in the backfield, the slot or other areas of the field. Gibson is someone who has a very late ADP you can stash on your bench with the hopes he’ll carve out a role for himself.
