It didn’t look good for Antonio Gibson, who missed practice all week with a toe injury, but it appears the Washington Redskins running back will play Sunday.

Both Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter tweeted as much. Gibson hasn’t played since suffering the injury on Dec. 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Toe injuries are tough, which is still giving our experts some pause. Matthew Freedman moved him from No. 11 to No. 19. J.D. McKissic is No. 34 in Freedman’s rankings, which gives an idea of how close the backfield battle is.

Below are our experts’ rankings for Gibson as a RB.

Koerner: 22

Analysis from our team of experts

 

What to do with Gibson depends on your situation. Sitting on Alvin Kamara and Mike Evans and need to protect a lead? There are higher floors available and safer options. However, if you’re chasing down a lead or considered an underdog, Gibson presents the highest ceiling.

Alex Smith is unlikely to play, which means it’s Dwayne Haskins under center for Washington. Leading wide receiver Terry McLaurin is also expected to miss the contest.

Be sure to read Koerner’s tiers to get a better idea of who should be considered in Gibson’s range. Our fantasy football rankings will also be updated throughout the day as more news is released on Gibson and all fantasy football players, such as James Robinson.

There are options to sort by standard scoring, PPR and half-point PPR.
