View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Over his 2 NFL seasons, Gibson has handled the league’s 7th-most carries and 8th-most total opportunities (carries + targets).
  • His rushing attempts per game increased by 4.0 last season, from 12.1 to 16.1. His targets per game got a slight bump: 3.14 to 3.25.
  • The latter got a big boost from J.D. McKissic’s Week 12 injury. Gibson went from 8.1% target share in games with McKissic to 15.2% in games McKissic missed.
  • Last year found Gibson ranking 4th in the league in total opportunities but tied for just 13th in Dominator Rating, which looks at an RB’s share of team offensive production.
  • He tied for just 16th among RBs in red-zone snap share.
  • Gibson played through a shin stress fracture throughout 2021, adding a Week 6 calf injury and a December toe issue. He initially suffered a turf-toe type of injury in Dec. 2020, which reportedly lingered through the following offseason (but didn’t keep Gibson off the field).
  • Washington matched Buffalo’s contract offer to keep J.D. McKissic from leaving in free agency.
  • The team selected Alabama RB Brian Robinson in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. HC Ron Rivera has since indicated that he’d like to deploy Gibson and Robinson in a similar fashion to how his early Panthers teams used RBs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart.
  • Yearly carry counts for Williams and Stewart:
    • 2011: Williams 155, Stewart 142
    • 2012: Williams 173, Stewart 93 (in 9 games)
    • 2013: Williams 201, Stewart + Mike Tolbert 149 (Stewart missed 10 games)
    • 2014: Stewart 175, Williams + Tolbert 99 (in 14 combined games)


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Washington is saying with both words and actions that it wants to limit Gibson’s workload more than it did the past 2 years. J.D. McKissic returns to keep the passing-game lead, while rookie Brian Robinson adds a thumping presence between the tackles. Gibson looks likely to lose both targets and carries vs. last year’s numbers, and he could lose further touches near the goal line. Fantasy drafters have been apprehensive all offseason, allowing Gibson to slip into late Round 5 and even Round 6 since the Robinson addition and the Williams-Stewart comparisons. Gibson doesn’t carry a ton of risk in Round 6, but there’s potential for this to be a frustrating fantasy situation all year. That’s less of a concern for best-ball drafting but should make you wary of counting on Gibson in a lineup-setting format.

Brian Robinson, RB WAS

11:44am EDT 6/28/22

Robinson the goal-line back?

The Athletic's Ben Standig wonders whether rookie Brian Robinson will replace Antonio Gibson as the Commanders' goal-line back this season. "Washington selected running back Brian Robinson to be a between-the-tackles hammer," Standig writes. "It will be interesting to see whether Robinson or Antonio Gibson, who remains the lead back, handles goal-line/short-yardage situations. Often the rookie gets eased into such scenarios, but Gibson’s penchant for fumbles combined with Robinson’s ball security and interior running could flip this toward the Alabama alum." Gibson coughed it up 6 times last season and was just-ok near the goal line, converting 5 of 12 carries inside the 5-yard line into TDs. Robinson has 5 pounds on Gibson and scored 14 times on the ground at Alabama last year. Usage in Washington's backfield will be worth monitoring closely in training camp and preseason action.

ESPN's John Keim writes that the touch count "should remain high" for Commanders RB Antonio Gibson this season but that "his usage could vary weekly." That comes after the team drafted Alabama RB Brian Robinson in Round 3, an addition that has elicited multiple comparisons to former Panthers RB duo DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Keim specifically highlights Robinson's power and short-yardage potential. That could vulture goal-line touches from Gibson, who has racked up 18 TDs on the ground through 2 seasons. Add the return of J.D. McKissic, and it's easy to see the risk factors on Gibson's 2022 workload. His best-ball ADP has dipped significantly since the NFL Draft. We'll see where he settles as summer approaches.

Commanders HC Ron Rivera compared his new Antonio Gibson - Brian Robinson backfield to the Jonathan Stewart - De'Angelo Williams pairing he had in Carolina, according to insider Grant Paulsen. Those guys split backfield work almost right down the middle across 4 seasons under Rivera, with Stewart averaging 10.4 carries and 2.8 targets per game vs. Williams' 11.2 carries and 1.6 targets. We're not expecting Robinson to match Gibson in volume this season, but it sounds like the rookie has a shot to play a significant role.

Washington selected RB Brian Robinson in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. At nearly 6’2, 225 pounds, the Alabama product is a load to bring down. He broke out as a 5th-year senior, rushing for 271-1,343-14 after sitting behind guys like Josh Jacobs, Najee Harris and Damien Harris. Despite 2 drops, Robinson added 35 catches in the receiving game. He drew a Chris Carson comp from NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein, and the tape backs that up. In Washington, he profiles as a potential rotational runner right out of the gate. Note that Antonio Gibson is under contract for 2 more seasons.

Gibson racked up 1,331 total yards in his 2nd NFL season while playing through a stress fracture in his shin. It hasn't been an encouraging offseason, though, with Washington re-signing J.D. McKissic and drafting Brian Robinson.
