Basic StatsAntonio Gibson's Preseason Player Analysis

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

8:36pm EST 11/27/22

Robinson delivers big game vs. Falcons

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.

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.

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.
