Game status: Antonio Gibson is ACTIVE for Week 4.

Game day update: Gibson is expected to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, barring a pregame set back, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Nick Jhabvala further confirmed the news shortly before the inactives announcement.

Antonio Gibson is listed as questionable on this week’s official injury report. The Washington Football Team running back has a shin injury. After practicing on Wednesday, he was sidelined the next day. However, he was able to practice on Friday, on a limited basis, and head coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he was “pretty confident” about Gibson’s availability this week.

Fantasy football impact: Antonio Gibson (shin)

Gibson had a solid outing last week against the Bills, thanks to a 73-touchdown catch. He also had 12 rushing attempts in that game for just 31 yards. Gibson and the Washington Football Team have a favorable matchup this week against the Atlanta Falcons, and if he does play, he’ll be a solid choice to any starting lineup. If Gibson can’t play, J.D. McKissic would see a big bump in his workload. He would be a good value pick in DFS and worthy of a spot as a RB2 in almost any fantasy format. Rookie Jared Patterson could also see some work if Gibson sits, but he would not have much fantasy value at this point.
