Detroit Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs should expect to "see more of a load" in 2024, according to general manager Brad Holmes on a recent appearance of The Rich Eisen Show. "I definitely would expect him to see more of a load, but David Montgomery will still be here too. Dan (Campbell) and I love that 1-2 punch of him and David. But just speaking on, specifically, him being a rookie last year, even when he had some pops in (last year's season opener), I was watching, I was like, 'He's still trying to get the feel of the game.' He was playing very fast, and he actually kind of needed to slow down a little bit . . . But once he got that sweet spot, you kind of saw it in the (Baltimore) Ravens game, which unfortunately we didn't show up very well for that game, but that's when you started seeing some glimpses of, 'I think it's coming, I think it's coming,' Then, obviously, that (Las Vegas) Raiders game where I believe everyone saw the breakout. . . . I think he has much more to offer in the passing game, so most likely you'll see an increase in that as well," Holmes said.
Huddle Up: Gibbs' dynasty managers have to be loving this quote from the GM. Despite missing two games as a rookie, Gibbs amassed 1,261 yards and 11 touchdowns on 234 touches. He saw at least 12 touches in each of Detroit's three playoff games as well. It bodes very well for him that Detroit is ready to give him more work, as Gibbs could push for overall RB1 production if he is handed (and can handle) 15 to 18 touches on a regular basis.

Detroit Lions RBs Jahmyr Gibbs (2.2) and David Montgomery (2.0) rank first and tied for second, respectively, in the league among qualified rushers in average yards after contact, according to Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: While the Lions' offensive line deserves a well-earned nod here for the holes they create for both backs, plenty of credit also goes to the backs for putting themselves in a position where defenders cannot square them up. Gibbs' weekly ceiling will probably be lower than fantasy managers would prefer due to the presence of Montgomery and vice versa, but the two backs complement each other nicely and should help one another stay relatively fresh all season long moving forward.
