Per Ben Standig of The Athletic, Commanders HC Ron Rivera wants to get RB Antonio Gibson more touches in 2023. Rivera mentions how the fourth-year back meshes with what new OC Eric Bieniemy "wants to do with the offense" moving forward. Though Gibson is coming off a season that set career lows in carries (149), rushing yards (546), and rushing TDs (3), he did log a 46-353-2 line as a pass-catcher in 2022. It's possible Bieniemy sees Gibson as someone who could play a role similar to what Jerick McKinnon did for the Chiefs last year. Should that be the case, Gibson could be an absolute steal in PPR leagues as the receiving complement to teammate Brian Robinson. It'll be worth keeping an eye on this storyline as the offseason unfolds and we get into training camp.

Washington spent a sixth-round pick on Kentucky RB Chris Rodriguez Jr. He averaged a strong 6.2 yards per carry for his career but caught only 20 passes. Rodriguez also spent five years in college and will turn 23 in September. It took him until 2021 to take over the Wildcats backfield. We're not betting on Rodriguez overtaking Antonio Gibson or Brian Robinson Jr. on the 2023 depth chart. But he'll be interesting to watch if injuries occur ahead of him.

The Commanders fired OC Scott Turner. Washington never ranked better than 20th in total yards or 23rd in points across Turner's 3 seasons, although QB play was seemingly a bigger problem than Turner's play calling. We'll see who the Commanders tab as their next OC -- and what they do at QB. Carson Wentz is set to count $26 million against the 2023 cap but can be cut with no dead-cap penalty.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson had surgery on Thursday to repair a fractured foot, HC Ron Rivera said. Gibson was on the injury report with a foot from Week 13 on, although it's unclear exactly when the fracture occurred. Rivera said the "hope" is that Gibson will be ready for the start of offseason workouts. We'll track his rehab.

The Commanders have elevated RB Jaret Patterson from the practice squad, ahead of Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. It's not a surprising move, given that RB Antonio Gibson will be out once again. He landed on IR Thursday after missing last week with knee and foot injuries. RB Brian Robinson Jr. (knee) joined Gibson in missing Wednesday's practice. Don't be surprised if Robinson sits out the finale as well. Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch says Patterson "seems likely to get a large share of work on Sunday." Washington also has RB Jonathan Williams on the active roster. Beware of using any Commanders offensive players in your Week 18 lineup.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, foot) has been placed on IR, knocking him out for Sunday's finale vs. the Cowboys. Gibson had a few solid fantasy outings this season but was generally disappointing, finishing with 546 rushing yards and 3 TDs on 3.7 yards per carry and a 46-353-2 receiving line. He sits 30th among RBs in PPR points per game. Gibson turns 25 in June and is signed with Washington for 1 more season. He looks like no better than a RB3 in early 2023 fantasy drafts.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, foot) didn't participate in practice on Wednesday. Fellow RB Brian Robinson (knee) also sat out. Hopefully, the pair can get back into action soon. Be sure to check back tomorrow regarding their health ahead of Week 18 vs. the Cowboys.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot, knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Browns. Rookie RB Brian Robinson is set to step up and assume another big workload. Robinson is averaging 18.3 carries over his last 4 games. Moreover, the Browns rank 26th in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over the last 5 weeks in addition to being the 3rd-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs on the season. Fire up Robinson with confidence as a high-end RB2 candidate.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (knee, ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. That obviously doesn't hurt RB Brian Robinson's Week 17 fantasy profile, but it's worth noting that RB Jonathan Williams stepped into the passing-down role with Gibson banged up late in last week's loss to the 49ers. Robinson still doesn't project for big passing-game usage this weekend -- but he's a strong fantasy play based on his rushing upside against a bad Cleveland run defense.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot/knee) did not practice, and RB Brian Robinson (quad) logged full participation on Thursday. It seems fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Gibson for the fantasy championship round. We'll check in again tomorrow in case something changes. Should Robinson see the backfield to himself, he is best considered a high-end RB2 candidate vs. the Browns in Week 17.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson (quad) was listed as a full participant at practice on Wednesday. Fellow RB Antonio Gibson (foot, knee) did not participate. We'll continue to track how the health of this backfield shakes out in advance of Week 17's matchup vs. the Browns.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) logs full practice on Thursday and doesn't carry an injury tag ahead of Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers. The 49ers' defense is a tough front to crack. Gibson is nothing more than an RB3/flex option this week. The same goes for teammate Brian Robinson.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was limited at practice again on Wednesday. Rookie Brian Robinson (quad) logged his 2nd straight full practice. Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the 49ers is just around the corner. Though the 49ers D ranks as the 2nd-toughest matchup in adjusted points allowed to RBs, Robinson would have the backfield mostly to himself if Gibson ultimately does not play. Neither RB is more than a flex consideration regardless of what happens though. We'll keep an eye on this and report back tomorrow.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday. The Commanders are set to take the field on Saturday against the 49ers in Week 16, so turnaround time is a bit shorter this week. Both Gibson and teammate Brian Robinson are staring down a brutal matchup against a 49ers defense that ranks as the 2nd-toughest for opposing RBs in 2022. Be cautious of both backs in lineups. Stay tuned for updated information.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson posted 12 carries for 89 yards in Sunday's loss vs. the Giants. The rookie back also collected 1 reception for 18 yards in the receiving game. Teammate Antonio Gibson did not contribute as much, only reaching 21 yards on 5 carries in addition to a pair of catches for another 6 yards receiving. Robinson has been a reliable high-floor flex option of late, however Week 16 will present a tough challenge. The 49ers have shut down opposing RBs this year, ranking 3rd-toughest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to the position. Robinson's high volume in the carries department will vault him into flex consideration next week, though not much should be expected. Same goes for Gibson, who will also be flex-worthy as the complimentary option out of the Commanders' backfield.

Commanders RBs Brian Robinson (quad) and Antonio Gibson (foot) were limited in practice this week, but neither guy is on the final injury report. They should both be ready for their usual roles vs. the Giants on Sunday night: Robinson the lead ball-carrier, Gibson mixing in on early downs and handling most of the pass-catching work.

Commanders RBs Brian Robinson (quad) and Antonio Gibson (foot) were limited in Wednesday's practice. We haven't heard anything to suggest that either guy is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Giants, but we'll keep an eye on them over the next few days.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson Jr. followed his best rushing performance of the season with his 2nd most efficient outing in Sunday's tie with the Giants. He ran 21 times for 96 yards, a 4.6-yard average. That trails only his 5.8 vs. Atlanta in Week 12 and was just his 2nd game this season with 4.0+ yards per rush. Robinson added 2 catches for 15 yards on 2 targets. he matched RB Antonio Gibson's reception total, while beating his backfield mate by 12 rushes. Robinson now gets a Week 14 bye before a rematch with the Giants. After that comes a tough spot vs. San Francisco, but then a top-notch rushing matchup with the Browns.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, so it’s fair to assume that he’ll be operating at less than 100% today.
