Jan 9 5:10pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson collected 146 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown while backup Jaret Patterson only had six carries. Washington was up for most of the game and were by no means intimidated by the New York Giants' Jake Fromm-led offense. Nevertheless, it's still encouraging that when Gibson is healthy, he's clearly viewed as the team's workhorse back and who the offense would ideally run through. There's a chance that many variables may change in Washington for the 2022 season, but depending on what happens, the sophomore runner could be a top three round pick. However, for Dynasty, Washington may continue to struggle to find a quarterback, and they've shown a lack of trust in Gibson's ball security as well. Therefore, although Gibson holds immense value, it may be wise to sell-high on him during the off-season.

FB Team's RB Antonio Gibson ran for 146 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win in New York Giants.

Jan 8 11:40am ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (hip) put in a full practice on Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Giants. Gibson missed the Week 17 game due to COVID-19, so it's possible that he doesn't see his usual large workload in a meaningless game to close out the season. Rookie Jaret Patterson stepped up in Gibson's absence last week, too, going for 57 yards and a touchdown on a season-high 12 carries while also adding five catches for 41 yards. However, Gibson is also 109 yards away from the 1,000-yard mark on the year, so Washington could ride him hard if he's 100%. The uncertainty drops him in the rankings to more of an RB2 for the finale.

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson was activated from the COVID-IR on Wednesday, making him eligible to play on Sunday. However, Gibson has been dealing with a fractured shin for much of the season, and with Washington eliminated from playoff contention, it's possible the team rests Gibson and lets rookie Jaret Patterson carry the load for the second week in a row. It's certainly a situation to monitor as either player would get a strong matchup against a Giants team that appeared to give up last week against the Bears.

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (illness) was not activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and ruled out for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was placed on the COVID list Friday and wasn't cleared ahead of Sunday's game. The 23-year-old has been one of the few bright spots for Washington, rushing for 891 yards and six touchdowns while catching 41 passes for 289 yards and three scores over 15 games in 2021. Rookie Jaret Patterson is expected to lead Washington's backfield while Gibson is out. Patterson is an RB3/flex against an Eagles defense that ranks 12th in rush DVOA.

The Washington Football Team placed running back Antonio Gibson and left guard Ereck Flowers on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. There's a chance that Gibson and Flowers test out of the COVID protocols, but it's highly unlikely that will happen before Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Fantasy managers that were planning on starting Gibson in their championship matchups will have to look elsewhere. It's a huge blow to a Washington offense that couldn't do much in last week's blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys, where Gibson was really their only bright spot. Rookie Jarret Patterson should handle the bulk of the backfield work against Philly, with Jonathan Williams serving as a change of pace.

Dec 30 12:40pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (hip) wasn't at the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday. Gibson was limited to begin the practice week on Wednesday, so this downgrade should have fantasy managers a bit concerned about his status heading into Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The 23-year-old played just 35% of the offensive snaps in the blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys last week, and despite rushing for 29 yards on a season-low six carries, he salvaged his line with a receiving score as the lone bright spot for Washington's offense. Gibson is trending down as a low-end RB2 with an injury concern this week, and rookie Jaret Patterson could be in line for a substantial role if Gibson is out or limited in Week 17. His Friday practice participation will be key.

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (hip) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday due to a hip injury. He was listed with a toe injury last week but still suited up in the embarrassing blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Don't be alarmed by Gibson's season-low six carries in Week 16, as most of Washington's starters were benched in the second half with the game decided by halftime. The 23-year-old was the lone bright spot on offense, too, salvaging his fantasy day with a receiving touchdown while totaling 58 scrimmage yards on eight total touches. Gibson managed only 26 rushing yards and a touchdown two weeks ago against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he'll be a low-end RB2 in a struggling Washington offense in Week 17.

Dec 27 12:30pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson carried the ball six times for 29 yards and added two receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's embarrassing loss to the Cowboys. Gibson was a game-time decision in this one and ended up playing through his toe injury, but the blowout likely had a lot to do with the sophomore only getting eight touches in this one, although his nagging toe issue could potentially be something that will limit his volume in the last two games of the season. Jaret Patterson ended up leading the team in carries with nine, and rushing yards with 33, so he could carve out a larger role in the offense with J.D. McKissic sidelined.

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) is active for Sunday Night Football versus Dallas. Things weren't looking so good after the 23-year-old was diagnosed with turf toe, an injury he sustained during the Week 15 NFC East matchup against the Eagles. While the fantasy managers who didn't replace him ahead of the late lock time are undoubtedly pleased with the update, Gibson could still be limited to some degree. As a result, there is a chance Jaret Patterson, who was slated to take over if Gibson wasn't available, could still be involved.

Dec 26 8:20am ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) is listed as questionable and is expected to be a game-time decision against the Cowboys in Week 16, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. However, the team does have "optimism" about his availability for the divisional tilt. Gibson has been impactful since Washington's bye week, totaling 536 scrimmage yards and four total touchdowns over the last six games. Despite battling various injuries this season, Gibson has yet to miss a game. All the while, he has worked to carve out a significant role in the passing game, especially after J.D. McKissic suffered a concussion in Week 12. Although Gibson didn't practice at all this week, he could still see a sizable workload. If active, the 23-year-old should be viewed as a solid RB2 option against Dallas.

Dec 24 1:50pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) has been listed as questionable to suit up for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after injuring a toe in Week 15. Gibson was held to a season-low 26 rushing yards vs. Philadelphia, but he did manage to collect his sixth rushing score of the year. With J.D. McKissic (concussion) sidelined, Gibson stands to continue seeing the lion's share of snaps out of the backfield when healthy. An absence would pave the way for Jaret Patterson (who also found the end zone in Week 15) and Jonathan Williams to get into the mix. Shrewd fantasy managers may attempt to secure Patterson as an 11th-hour switch with Washington playing the late game Sunday, which makes Gibson's status all the more tricky to navigate.

Dec 23 12:30pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) is not at practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Gibson injured his toe in Tuesday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, although he was able to return to finish out the contest. But on a short week, there's a chance Gibson won't be ready for Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys. If he's a game-time decision, it will make things even tougher on his fantasy managers. Gibson had just 10 carries for 36 yards against Dallas two weeks ago, but his volume floor has made him a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 play on a weekly basis. Rookie Jaret Patterson scored his first career touchdown in Week 15 and is worth picking up as insurance, especially if you have Gibson rostered. Gibson may need to practice on Friday in order to have a shot at playing this week.

From RotoBaller

Dec 23 12:10am ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) didn't see the practice field on Wednesday due to a toe injury that he suffered in Tuesday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Gibson left the game but returned, so hopefully that means he'll be able to play in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. If he's a game-time decision, it'll make things much trickier for fantasy managers to navigate. The 23-year-old salvaged his fantasy day in Week 15 by scoring a touchdown. He's had double-digit carries in each of the last six games and has seen more involvement in the passing game in recent weeks with J.D. McKissic (concussion) injured, so the volume alone makes Gibson a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 if he's active. Rookie Jaret Patterson, who scored his first career touchdown on Tuesday, would be in line for primary RB duties if Gibson was inactive.

Dec 22 10:10am ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson finished with 15 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown, while adding six receptions for an additional 39 yards in Tuesday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The sophomore was able to make up for his low production on the ground by finding the end zone and having a big role in the passing game, so fantasy managers were able to get a solid showing out of him in PPR formats. Gibson left the game briefly with a toe injury before returning, so that could be something to monitor ahead of the team's Week 16 meeting with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. The Washington offense should be more effective once Taylor Heinicke gets back under center, so Gibson will find himself as a high-end RB2 moving forward.

Dec 21 8:20pm ET

Updating a previous report, Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) has returned to the Tuesday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles after leaving temporarily in the first half. Before he left the game, Gibson had seven carries for 20 yards and a touchdown and also caught both of his targets for 25 yards. Fantasy managers that need a big game from Gibson in order to advance to the fantasy semifinals in Week 16 can rest assured that he is back in to contest. Rookie Jaret Patterson was in line to see the majority of the backfield touches if Gibson didn't return, while Washington also has Jonathan Williams as an option. J.D. McKissic (concussion) was put on Injured Reserve before the game and won't be able to return until the Week 18 regular season finale.

Dec 21 7:50pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson (toe) was injured in the Tuesday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles and is questionable to return to the game. The good news for his fantasy managers is that Gibson was able to carry the ball seven times for 20 yards and a touchdown before leaving the field to enter the blue medical tent. He also caught both of his targets for 25 yards. Washington placed pass-catching back J.D. McKissic (concussion) on Injured Reserve before the game and Wendell Smallwood is on the COVID-19 list, so only rookie Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams are on the game-day roster. Expect the two to split the workload if Gibson doesn't return Tuesday against Philly.

From RotoBaller

Dec 18 12:40pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson will look to bounce back in Week 15 after finishing with just 10 carries for 36 yards and a fumble last week. The Eagles have given up the 12th-fewest rushing yards this season, so the matchup isn't particularly concerning. However, with Washington dealing with injuries and a COVID-19 outbreak, the team could have some trouble moving the ball into scoring positions in this one as they could be without some key starters. If Taylor Heinicke isn't able to play on Tuesday, Gibson could have a hefty workload that we have seen on numerous occasions this season. In a potential negative game script, Gibson could see more usage than usual as J.D. McKissic is a question mark heading into the game. The sophomore is best valued as an RB2 as we head into the first round of the fantasy playoffs.

Dec 12 5:10pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson finished with 10 carries for 36 yards and caught two passes for five yards in a miserable game on Sunday. The sophomore was scripted out of the game plan early as the offense got nothing going for almost the entire game, as the Cowboys' defense had their way in this one. The Cowboys have been solid against the run this year, so it wasn't a surprise to see Gibson finish with limited rushing totals as we have seen it happen a few times this year. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to find the end zone and ultimately was a bust in Week 14 for fantasy managers. The 23-year-old should be able to get back on track next week against a mediocre Philadelphia defense.

From RotoBaller

Dec 10 3:30pm ET

Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson finds himself in the RB1 discussion once again as he has become a workhorse running back after the team's BYE week. It looks like his shin injury is no longer limiting him, as the sophomore has logged 64 combined touches in the past two games. Dallas has been much-improved against the run this year as they have given up the 12th-fewest rushing yards, but they have given up 4.5 yards per carry. After what we have seen the past few weeks, there is no reason to believe that Gibson will not have a hefty workload on the ground, so the 23-year-old is a must-start option this week. If J.D. McKissic (concussion) is to miss his second consecutive game, Gibson could once again have an increased role as a pass-catcher. He has caught 12 of his 13 targets in his past two games, so there would be a heightened floor for him if McKissic remains sidelined.
