Antonio Gibson, RB (WAS)

Efficient on ground in win

Gibson rushed 13 times for 69 yards and brought in both targets for four yards in Washington's 30-29 win over the Giants on Thursday night.

Gibson's rushing opportunities were ultimately capped partly by game script despite the favorable matchup, as backfield mate J.D. McKissic ended up seeing quite a bit of work in a frenetic fourth quarter. Gibson still turned in a second straight efficient rushing performance to open the 2021 campaign, giving him 159 yards on 33 carries over his first pair of contests. He also encouragingly remained involved a receiver to an extent and will look to bump his workload on the ground back up in a Week 3 road battle against the Bills a week from Sunday.
