Detroit Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (ankle) did not practice Saturday, May 13, after suffering a minor ankle injury.
Huddle Up: The Lions are understandably being cautious with their first-round pick, but there are some concerns about whether the speedy Gibbs will be able to hold up as a lead back. Consider him a RB2 with upside heading into his rookie campaign.

Detroit Lions first-round draft choice RB Jahmyr Gibbs was reportedly so high on the team's draft board that it would have been comfortable taking him at No. 6 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft had it not traded back to the No. 12 pick.
Huddle Up: Oh boy ... even for initial post-draft optimism, this ranks up there in terms of hyperbole. There are multiple reasons why: if Detroit felt that strongly about Gibbs, it would likely not have risked missing out on him by trading back. Taking Gibbs at No. 6 would have also meant they liked him more than BIjan Robinson, which also seems like a bit of a stretch. Such a pick would have also made their signing of David Montgomery just over a month ago mostly a waste of money. Perhaps most importantly, Gibbs could struggle to hold up physically at 199 pounds in an offense that saw its running backs handle more than 500 touches last season. Gibbs should be viewed as a high-end RB2 this season, but Detroit is kidding itself if it believes he can be a featured back - which is what using the No. 6 overall pick would have indicated.

Alabama RB Jahmyr Gibbs was selected by the Detroit Lions with the 12th overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Gibbs will join a crowded backfield in Detroit but should still see some touches during games. Fantasy players should have a better idea on his role during training camp, so they should wait before deciding on Gibbs' fantasy value.
