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. Read Past Outlooks

Receives 11 touches in debut
RBWashington Football Team
September 13, 2020
Gibson gained 36 yards on nine carries and added two additional yards while snaring both his targets during Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Making his NFL debut, Gibson led the team in rushing despite receiving roughly half as many carries as Peyton Barber. The majority of his production came on a nifty 20-yard scamper, but nevertheless, it was encouraging to see him average 4.0 yards per carry against one of the tougher run defenses in the league. Barber did score twice on the day, but perhaps Gibson's more productive per-touch numbers could earn him additional usage next Sunday against the Cardinals.
