Jahmyr Gibbs inefficient in Week 2

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs was again used sparingly in the running game in the Week 2 overtime loss to the Seahawks, finishing with just seven carries. He was heavily involved in the passing game, though, leading Detroit with nine targets. He caught seven of them but unfortunately managed just 39 receiving yards. And he averaged just 2.4 yards per carry on the ground. We'd certainly expect better efficiency going forward. But it's clear that the Lions want to limit Gibb's rushing volume. Even after RB David Montgomery left this one with a thigh injury, RB Craig Reynolds started mixing in on early downs. It's a frustrating situation for fantasy owners. But if Gibbs is going to get anything close to this level of target volume, he can still pay off in fantasy.
