Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson ran the ball 13 times for 69 yards in a Week 2 win over the New York Giants. Gibson also caught two passes for four yards.
Huddle Up: Gibson shook off his Week 1 fumbling issues and was solid as part of a gameplan that favored putting the ball in Taylor Heinicke's hands; as such, that led to a lot of playing time for pass-catching back J.D. McKissic. Even if Gibson's usage fluctuates from week to week, he's still playable as an RB2.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 13. Washington did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Gibson will be available for the Week 2 game. He posted nearly 100 total yards in the season opener and can be at least a No. 2 fantasy running back if he plays.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson rushed 20 times for 90 yards in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, although he also did lose a fumble.
Huddle Up: Gibson added 18 yards on three catches and five targets, too, helping out those in PPR leagues. He remains a solid low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll look to find the end zone in Week 2 against the New York Giants with a quick turnaround Thursday night.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson has displayed growth and maturity in offseason practices, and it has the team's coaches excited about his -- and the offense's -- prospects for the 2021 season. 'You can tell he's matured, got a better feel and understanding,' Washington coach Ron Rivera said of Gibson during minicamp this month. 'Those natural instincts that you look for, the intangibles that guys that have been playing the positions their whole career naturally have. You start to see those come to light with Antonio. It's exciting.'
Huddle Up: Gibson averaged 16.4 fantasy points (PPR) per outing over his first 11 games as a rookie until a turf-toe injury slowed him down. He has low-end RB1 potential in Year 2.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson has untapped potential as a receiver, according to running backs coach Randy Jordan. 'I think the biggest thing for him is utilizing his ability to catch the ball because he has caught the ball in college,' Jordan said.
Huddle Up: Gibson exploded on the scene with 11 rushing touchdowns as a rookie. He added 36 receptions, but fellow back J.D. McKissic caught 80 passes. If Gibson cuts into McKissic's reception total a bit, he should finish in RB1 territory.

Washington Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe) disclosed to reporters Wednesday, June 2, that he is still rehabbing the toe injury that forced him to miss two games late last season.
Huddle Up: Gibson also said the injury is something he'll have to monitor moving forward but that he is able to make cuts when he needs to now. This news is far from ideal, but his participation in offseason activities thus far and recent reports that head coach Ron Rivera expects him to make a "big jump" in his second year suggest the team doesn't think this is a long-term problem. Nevertheless, it's an issue fantasy owners should monitor in the coming months and enough to keep the preseason hype on him from getting out of control.
