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.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is expected to play vs. the Giants today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gibson got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday this week, so it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100%.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. We’ll get Washington’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but it’s safe to assume that Gibson will be at less than 100% if he plays vs. New York.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson (foot) sat out practice on Thursday. Gibson was limited on Wednesday, so this is a step back for the 3rd-year man. We'll see if he's able to suit up on Friday.

Commanders RB Brian Robinson delivered his 1st career 100-yard game in Sunday's win over the Falcons, rushing for 105 on 18 carries. He added 2 catches for 20 yards, including a 14-yard TD. Robinson reclaimed the rushing lead from Antonio Gibson after trailing his teammate there in Week 11. Robinson still ran half has many pass routes as Gibson, according to Pro Football Focus, and beat him by just 4 total snaps. We'd credit the production -- at least in large part -- to the matchup. Sunday marked the 1st time this season that Robinson averaged more than 3.8 yards per carry. And his 2nd-best mark in that category came last week against Houston. Robinson's 3rd straight game of 15+ carries does at least make him a potential volume play in Week 13 against the Giants. We'll see how he fares there before a Week 15 rematch with the Giants (after Washington's bye). Gibson totaled just 9 carries for 32 yards and 3 catches for 22 against Atlanta.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson played twice as many snaps as Brian Robinson Jr. (46-23) in Sunday's win over the Texans. He carried 18 times for 72 yards (4.0 per rush) and caught all 3 of his targets for 31 more. Robinson carried 15 times for 57 yards (3.8) and didn't see a target. The team's only rushing TD went to WR Curtis Samuel, who carried twice for 18 yards for the game. Week 12 holds another high-upside matchup with the Falcons.

12:58pm EST 11/19/22

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) has been placed on IR and will miss the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McKissic's injury requires "a few months of rehab," per Rapoport. Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson will continue to handle backfield duties for Washington.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. That again leaves the backfield to Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson against the #32 RB defense.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) remained sidelined on Wednesday. We haven't heard a timeline for his return. Look for Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson to again handle backfield work in this weekend's plus matchup vs. the Texans.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Eagles. That'll leave most of the pass-catching work out of the backfield to RB Antonio Gibson.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. He was reportedly set to visit a specialist for that neck injury, but we haven't heard an update on his status. McKissic seems iffy for Monday night's game vs. the Eagles. His absence would be a boost for RB Antonio Gibson.

With RB J.D. McKissic out, RBs Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson Jr. split opportunities almost evenly. Gibson played 8 more snaps, but Robinson beat him by 2 carries and trailed by just 1 target. Robinson posted a 13-44 rushing line and caught both targets (for minus-6 yards). Gibson ran for 36 yards on his 11 carries and caught 2 of 3 targets for 11 yards. A Week 10 matchup with the Eagles doesn't look great for either player. Bet on the Commanders falling behind, though, which would favor Gibson's superior receiving.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. He's set to visit a specialist for that neck injury, so there's a chance he misses more time beyond Week 9. McKissic has averaged 2.8 carries and 5.0 targets per game this season. His absence is a particular boost for RB Antonio Gibson's target projection.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, which would be a boost to RB Antonio Gibson's fantasy stock.

Commanders RB J.D. McKissic (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details at this point, but it's worth noting that McKissic missed the final 6 games of last season with a neck injury. If he can't play vs. Minnesota this weekend, RB Antonio Gibson would pick up extra passing-game work.

Commanders RB Antonio Gibson led the team with 7 catches in Sunday's win over the Colts. He snared all of his 7 targets (2nd on the team) for 58 yards and the team's lone receiving TD. Gibson tied J.D. McKissic for the playing-time lead in Washington's backfield. Brian Robinson Jr. still led in carries, but took his 8 rushes for just 20 yards. Gibson ran 7 times for 19 yards; McKissic 2 for 6 yards. Washington gets a soft Minnesota defense in Week 9.
