Headed to New England

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-11

The Patriots are slated to sign Gibson, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

With Ezekiel Elliott set to become a free agent, the pending addition of Gibson gives the Patriots a versatile back to pair with lead rusher Rhamondre Stevenson. In 16 regular season games with Washington in 2023, Gibson recorded 65 carries for 265 yards and a touchdown, while adding 48 catches for 389 yards and two receiving scores on 59 targets. In his first campaign with New England, look for Gibson to spell Stevenson on early-downs, with change-of-pace/pass-catching duties also on tap. In that scenario, Gibson should have an opportunity to earn enough touches to merit lineup consideration in PPR formats in 2024.

Posts career lows in contract year

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-09

Gibson finished 2023 with 65 carries for 265 yards and a touchdown and 48 catches for 389 yards and two touchdowns on 59 targets.

The 2020 third-round pick added one target, two catches and 46 receiving yards to his 2022 career highs in those categories and also averaged a new personal best of 8.1 yards per catch, but it didn't work out for fantasy with his rushing numbers falling off a cliff. After averaging 214 carries for 916 yards and nine TDs over his first two seasons, Gibson dropped to 149-546-3 in 2022 and then all the way to 65-265-1 in 2023. He didn't get many carries even when Brian Robinson missed time with a hamstring injury in December, instead sticking in the passing-down role while Chris Rodriguez (ankle) took over as the lead runner for a few weeks. Gibson doesn't have the best instincts or vision as a ballcarrier, but it's possible another team could make better use of his rare combination of size and speed (he ran a 4.39 40 in 2020 at 228 pounds). The 25-year-old will be a free agent in March if he doesn't re-sign with the Commanders before the start of the new league year.

Tallies six touches in Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Gibson recorded four carries for 19 yards and gathered in two of four targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 27-10 loss to the 49ers.

Gibson welcomed back Brian Robinson (hamstring) to the Commanders backfield for the first time since Week 13, but even with Chris Rodriguez (ankle) going on injured reserve Thursday, Gibson's workload didn't differentiate from what he's accustomed to this season. His touch count landed in the middle of his typical range of 4-to-14, and Gibson again was easily out-touched by Robinson, 13-6. As such, Gibson likely will have a similar role Week 18 against the Cowboys.

Scores first rushing TD of 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Gibson carried the ball nine times for 30 yards and a touchdown and caught one of two targets for two yards in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Jets.

The fourth-year back scored his first rushing TD of the season late in the fourth quarter to give the Commanders their first lead of the game at 28-27, but the Jets responded with a game-winning field goal in the final seconds. While it was a productive outing for Gibson, he was overshadowed by rookie Chris Rodriguez, who scored twice on 10 carries while also gaining nearly double the rushing yards. The duo split the backfield workload for a second straight game with Brian Robinson (hamstring) sidelined, but if Robinson is unable to get back in the lineup for a Week 17 contest against the 49ers, Gibson could find himself taking a back seat to Rodriguez.

Doesn't benefit from Robinson absence

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Gibson took four carries for 15 yards and caught each of his five targets for 20 yards in a 28-20 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

He surprisingly didn't get more playing time in the absence of Brian Robinson (hamstring), with 45 percent snap share essentially mimicking Gibson's season-long rate of 46 percent. The Commanders used Chris Rodriguez (10 carries for 35 yards) as their lead runner and also gave Jonathan Williams same playing time (13 snaps, 22 percent), though Williams eventually left due to a concussion. Gibson might have more appeal Week 16 against the Jets if both Robinson and Williams are inactive, but even that scenario isn't a guarantee of anything after the disappointing Week 15 results.

Set for larger role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

Gibson and Chris Rodriguez will lead Washington's backfield Sunday against the Rams with Brian Robinson (hamstring) ruled out, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Gibson figures to play more than usual, though it's hard to pinpoint the extent of his role expansion given that Rodriguez could also get a bunch of the carries that normally go to Robinson. A look back at Week 13 isn't especially helpful, considering the Commanders had just 21 snaps in the second half of their blowout loss to Miami after losing Robinson to the hamstring injury shortly before halftime. Gibson did get 12 of the first 17 snaps in that second half, before Rodriguez closed out the game with carries on each of Washington's final four plays. This might be a multi-game situation given that Robinson wasn't able to practice at all coming out of a Week 14 bye.

Elevated role after Robinson exit

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Gibson rushed 10 times for 35 yards and brought in four of five targets for 37 yards in the Commanders' 45-15 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. He also fumbled once but recovered.

Gibson saw expanded opportunity with Brian Robinson exiting the game with a hamstring injury, a development that led to the former's highest carry count of the season. Gibson also retained his usual pass-catching role in the blowout loss, and if the upcoming Week 14 bye doesn't afford Robinson enough recovery time, Gibson could serve as the lead back in Week 15 road matchup against the Rams.

Returns after one-week absence

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Gibson took six carries for 21 yards and caught three of four targets for 16 yards in a 45-10 loss to Dallas on Thursday.

Gibson played 46 percent of snaps, four days after missing a loss to the Giants with a toe injury. Lead runner Brian Robinson dropped to 45 percent snap share while taking 17 touches for 64 yards, and he'll likely continue to cede a large chunk of the playing time to Gibson when the Commanders host the Dolphins in Week 13.

Active in Week 12

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-23

Gibson (toe) is listed as active Thursday in Dallas.

Gibson didn't practice at all last week before being listed as doubtful and eventually inactive for this past Sunday's game against the Giants. After receiving limited listings on all three Week 12 injury reports, he was deemed questionable for Thursday's game, and the activity was enough for him to be available. Gibson likely will regain his role as the pass-catching complement to the Commanders' No. 1 RB Brian Robinson, though there's a chance rookie sixth-rounder Chris Rodriguez remains in the backfield mix. In 10 appearances this season, Gibson has averaged six touches for 40.6 yards from scrimmage per game and scored two receiving TDs.
