Game day update: Gibson is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs today, barring a setback, per Ian Rapoport.

Running back Antonio Gibson is on this week’s official injury report. Gibson is dealing with a shin injury that caused him to miss practice on Wednesday, but he was able to get in limited sessions on both Thursday and Friday. The Washington Football Team downplayed the question of whether or not Gibson would be limited this week, pointing toward a normal workload for him against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy football impact: Antonio Gibson (shin)

Gibson had a big outing last week. He only picked up 60 yards on the ground on 20 carries, but he found the end zone twice, scoring for the third week in a row. Washington is still giving JD McKissic the majority of the workload in the passing game, but Gibson is usually good for a couple of catches and a few yards through the air each week. The Chiefs are not great at stopping opposing running backs, giving up an average of more than 26 fantasy points per game. Gibson is very much worth a starting spot in fantasy lineups this week.
