Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gibson was the first back drafted by the new regime and HC Ron Rivera promptly compared his skill set to Christian McCaffrey's. (When CMC’s old coach compares his draft pick to CMC, I pay attention.) Gibson lacks a big college profile, but he was outstanding in the limited work he got while at Memphis. He averaged 15.6 yards per touch last year and led all college skill players in yards after contact per attempt (8.0). Derrius Guice has been released by the team after allegations of domestic violence, so Gibson's ADP is bound to spike over the next few weeks. He's raw as a running back, but h'es built like one, so we'll see what sort of usage he'll get as a rookie. Adrian Peterson, Peyton Barber, J.D. McKissic and Bryce Love are vying for work in this backfield. Gibson has the most upside and is the only player that the new regime has an investment in.

WAS RB Antonio Gibson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Dallas Cowboys

We saw a worst-case scenario in Washington's backfield last week as Antonio Gibson (13 touches, 55 yards) split playing time with J.D. McKissic (14 touches, 84 yards) and Peyton Barber (5 touches, 10 yards). It's not clear why Barber is back in the mix as he's averaging 1.6 yards per touch this season, but the real threat to Gibson's value has been McKissic. McKissic had more touches, yards and playing time than Gibson in Week 6. We still feel like Gibson offers more upside, but his value has certainly taken a hit. He has a chance at a bounce-back game this week in a favorable matchup against the Cowboys (No. 23 aFPA). We like Gibson as a strong RB2 play.
