2021 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick in last year's draft, Gibson is best known for elite speed (4.39 40). The Memphis product needs very little space to explode for a big gain, and his larger frame allows him to bully his way through contact on occasion as well. The rest of his skill set as a running back is unpolished, but he was still good enough to take over the starting role in Washington almost immediately, and the team's offensive struggles in general didn't hamper his production. Gibson's versatility was also evident in his receiving numbers, though given how he was used in college (originally playing WR), more might have been expected in that area. As long as J.D. McKissic is on the roster, it will be tough for Gibson to carve out a larger role on passing downs. The big question heading into 2021 is whether he's ready to handle a huge rushing workload. Washington's offensive line is solid, but not one of the top units in the league, and Gibson isn't particularly adept at creating for himself. Ryan Fitzpatrick's arrival should steady the offense as a whole, but the veteran QB's track record indicates his arrival will do more to benefit Terry McLaurin than Gibson. Given the state of the Washington depth chart, Gibson should at least dominate early downs, but his ceiling could be capped until he gets a chance at a true three-down role. Read Past Outlooks

Still bothered by toe
RBWashington Football Team
Toe
June 2, 2021
Gibson said Wednesday that he hasn't fully healed from the toe injury he suffered last season, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
After missing Weeks 14 and 15, the rookie returned for Weeks 16 and 17 and Washington's lone playoff contest, though he was limited to 185 total yards and zero touchdowns over the three-game stretch. Gibson didn't need surgery after the season, but it's apparently been a slow process working his way back from turf toe, as he still notices pain and discomfort at times. That said, Gibson has been practicing with teammates at OTAs, where he says he's been running and cutting at full speed. He also revealed that he still gets treatment for the troublesome toe, hoping it'll eventually get back to 100 percent, per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Good luck finding a player comp for Gibson, a 228-pounder with 4.39 speed who spent two seasons at Memphis and touched the ball only seven times during the first of those campaigns. The community college transfer quickly worked his way from obscurity to third-round draft status, with his 2019 season yielding 38-735-8 through the air and 33-369-4 on the ground - good for second on his team in both rushing and receiving yards. Just for good measure, Gibson averaged 28 yards on 23 kick returns, adding a 13th TD on special teams. While his combine workouts were otherwise average, a 4.39 40 from a man his size will inevitably turn a lot of heads. With Adrian Peterson let go by the team in advance of Week 1, it's now possible that GIbson handles a key role for the team out of the gate, though veteran Peyton Barber could also get carries, and the team still has J.D. McKissic for passing downs. Gibson is the one with three-down potential, even if it doesn't materialize right away.
