Jahmyr Gibbs Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. RB David Montgomery (ribs) is out, while RB Craig Reynolds (hamstring, toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Ravens. We’ll see if Reynolds ends up active, but HC Dan Campbell confirmed Friday that Gibbs will lead the backfield this weekend. He handled 17 carries and two targets on a 60% snap rate with Montgomery out back in Week 3.

Lions HC Dan Campbell confirmed on Friday that RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is on track to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. And Campbell is planning on Gibbs playing a big role, despite coming off a multi-week hamstring injury. "I'd like to say we’re going to be careful with him, but the reality is we need him," Campbell said. Gibbs handled 17 carries and two targets on a 60% snap rate with RB David Montgomery out back in Week 3. It sounds like he's in for a similar workload on Sunday.

Lions RB Craig Reynolds (hamstring, toe) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That should put him on track to play vs. the Ravens this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow. RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday. He's expected to play this weekend.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is trending toward returning for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens. The rookie got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He'll carry elevated risk in Week 7 fantasy lineups coming off a multi-week hamstring injury. But the Lions will need Gibbs to play a significant role with RB David Montgomery out and RB Craig Reynolds dealing with hamstring and toe injuries.

Lions RBs David Montgomery (ribs) and Craig Reynolds (hamstring, toe) did not practice on Wednesday. Montgomery is not expected to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. This is the first we've heard of Reynolds' injuries, but his status for Sunday's game is now uncertain. RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday after HC Dan Campbell said earlier this week that the rookie was trending toward returning for the Ravens game. We'll get another update on this banged-up backfield tomorrow.

Lions HC Dan Campbell suggested Monday that RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) has a good chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens. "Feel a lot better about Gibbs this week," Campbell said. "He ran really well on Saturday before we left (for Tampa Bay) and had another really good workout today." Gibbs' return would be well-timed considering Detroit will be without RB David Montgomery. Gibbs tallied 17 carries and two targets on a 60% snap rate when Montgomery missed Week 3.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. He's yet to practice since hurting his hamstring last Friday. We'll see if the rookie can make it back for Week 7. Gibbs' absence this week leaves Craig Reynolds as Detroit's No. 2 RB and David Montgomery in a workhorse role. Montgomery racked up 19 carries and six targets with Gibbs out last week.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Bucs this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. The rookie hurt his hamstring last Friday and missed the Panthers game. He's not looking particularly likely to play vs. the Bucs this weekend, but we'll track his status over the next few days.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. We’ll see if the rookie can make it back for Week 6 after hurting his hamstring in practice on Friday. Gibbs’ absence today should mean an even bigger workload for RB David Montgomery. RBs Craig Reynolds and Zonovan Knight are active to spell Montgomery.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) and RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) won't play vs. the Panthers today. Both guys are listed as doubtful. It leaves the Lions without their No. 1 and No. 4 target getters. Expect a run-heavy attack from Detroit today.

On Saturday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) has been officially downgraded to 'Doubtful' for Week 5's contest vs. the Panthers. The rookie was a surprise addition to the team's injury report on Friday with this ailment, and it seems now that it will take him out of the lineup this weekend. This news brings a decent-sized uptick in the potential scoring output for teammate David Montgomery. We already liked Montgomery plenty this week, but the Panthers' defense ranks as the third-easiest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. Managers who roster Gibbs should check their waiver wire for help immediately.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable, so it looks like the rookie hurt his hamstring on Friday. We'll look for further updates on his status and will get Detroit's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs played well behind RB David Montgomery in Thursday night's win over the Packers. Montgomery, back from his thigh injury, carried a whopping 32 times, including eight times inside Green Bay's 10-yard line. Gibbs totaled just eight carries, with none of those coming inside the 10. The rookie was efficient, totaling 40 yards on 5.0 yards per carry. And he added four catches on five targets for 11 yards. But this was not the usage fantasy owners who spent a third or fourth-round pick on Gibbs were looking for. He's now totaled just 15 carries and seven targets in two full games with Montgomery. Gibbs' role might grow over the course of the season, but the 3-1 Lions have no reason to divert from their current plan right now. Gibbs at least gets a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Panthers' 29th-ranked RB defense, but it'll be tough to consider him more than a RB3.
