Antonio Gibson is the starting running back for the Washington Football Team. He has been a productive fantasy asset, but he is falling slightly short of his preseason expectations. He had been rumored to be working on his role in the passing game last offseason, but that hasn’t really translated to the season so far. Gibson has played in all seven games and is the leading rusher for the Washington Football Team. He has 103 rushing attempts for 408 yards and three rushing touchdowns. He has caught 14 of 18 targets for an additional 124 yards and a touchdown through the air.
