Commanders RB Antonio Gibson took over the Washington backfield in Sunday's loss to Miami after Brian Robinson Jr. left with a hamstring injury. Gibson finished with a 56% snap share, his second-highest mark of the year. He carried 10 times for just 35 yards, though, adding a 4-37 receiving line on 5 targets. Chris Rodriguez trailed him for 7 carries, but that included rushing on the final three plays of a 45-15 defeat. Washington now gets a Week 14 bye, so we'll see about Robinson's status for the Week 15 clash with the Rams. If he's out, expect Gibson to contend for an RB2 spot in the Week 15 rankings. Rodriguez isn't worth fantasy attention for most formats at this stage of the season.
Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. was ruled out of the second half Sunday with an injured hamstring.
The Commanders have ruled out Robinson for the second half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a hamstring injury.
Commanders RB Brian Robinson hurt his hamstring in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins and will not return. That leaves the backfield to Antonio Gibson and Chris Rodriguez. We'll see how work is split between those two -- although there probably won't be much running from Washington in a 31-7 hole.
Commanders RB Antonio Gibson has garnered his three largest touch counts of the season over his past three games. That has meant just 11, 9, and 9 touches, not necessarily a relevant level of usage for most fantasy formats. But receptions are driving those numbers. Gibson has caught five passes in three of his past four games and returned from a toe injury last week to regain the backfield receiving lead from Brian Robinson Jr. Sunday finds Washington entering the game as 9.5-point underdogs to Miami, which points to pass-friendly game conditions. That doesn't make Gibson a strong fantasy option. But it does give him some sneaky upside in a week with six teams on bye. See where Gibson lands in our Week 13 RB rankings.
