HERE’S WHY ANTONIO GIBSON IS WFT’S RB1!

By Sally Fahey and PFF

Washington deployed a three-back committee in Week 1.

Both Peyton Barber (17 carries) and J.D. McKissic (five targets) each played more snaps than Gibson, who seemed weeks away from having a fantasy-viable role.

And then Week 2 happened. Gibson didn’t blow up or anything, but the usage shift in the backfield was dramatic:

  • Gibson: 65% snaps, 13 carries, 2 targets
  • McKissic: 44% snaps, 8 carries, 0 targets
  • Barber: 2% snaps, 1 carry, 0 targets

Check out my Week 3 RB committee breakdown for thoughts on the projected backfield splits around the league.

Gibson converted his 15 opportunities into 52 yards and a score in Week 2. He hasn’t gained more than 20 yards on a play this season and ranks as fantasy’s PPR RB32 through two weeks.
