Well this call could make me look really smart or really foolish. Just an fyi- the smart money is on foolish haha! Antonio Gibson is still recovering from a turf toe injury he suffered in late 2020. That's a concern. If he's okay, then things could get real interesting. Coach Ron Rivera said he wants him to be more involved in the passing game (Note- he played WR in college). He came into the NFL really raw as a RB which means he could make a huge leap. Gibson is one of the few RBs with major three down upside if things break right, well assuming it's not his toe. He's big (220 lbs), fast (ran a 4.39 40 yard dash), and a natural playmaker. Can his toe hold up? That's the million dollar question? If it does, lookout! Gibbaay!!! 
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Last season we thought Antonio Gibson would be a receiving threat out of the backfield and likely limited rushing, given his collegiate experience. Gibson's most likely utilization comps for 2021 are Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry with 60-70% attempts and 5-8% of targets. *If* he does take over McKissic's passing-down work - we are talking certified beast usage. McKissic seems very likely to continue his same role, but I would put Gibson's odds as more likely to keep McKissick off the field than JT is to displace Hines or Henry to spike in targets. Gibson just barely trailed McKissic in YPRR and PFF receiving grade last year. Gibson was not good in limited pass pro chances, that's where he needs to show improvement. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
After being barely utilized as a runner in college, Gibson came out on fire in his rookie season. He averaged 4.7 YPC and 11 rushing touchdowns, which is absurd for a player who saw only 33 total carries in college. Heading into 2021, the sky's the limit for Gibson and what he can do with this experience to his name. He should receive a larger workload this upcoming season and this offense is going to be more potent due to the QB upgrade. You're going to have to pay up for Gibson and it's hard to take him over some more proven names, but this is a swing for the fences selection that has a very good chance of making it out of the park.Is Akers a very talented and dynamic RB? Yes. Is he going to see 29 carries in a game like he did at one point last year? Almost certainly not. With the expansion to a 17-game season, I believe we're going to see more and more NFL coaches look to involve multiple RBs in their game plan to avoid players wearing down. From Sean McVay's perspective, he's going to be thinking about how he needs Akers to be fresh for their deep playoff run and loading him up with touches like he did towards the end of last season isn't going to be sustainable for an entire season. Darrell Henderson is going to be involved in this offense enough to take some pressure off of Akers, which negatively impacts his fantasy value. I love Akers as a mid-range RB2 this year with incredible upside, but it's tough to logically get to the place that I feel comfortable putting him inside my top-10. If he ends up being drafted around that range, I'm not going to have many shares of Akers in 2021. My Very Early Projection: 271-1057-10 rushing & 29-297-2 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I like Gibson, it's not that I don't. The issue is that he's not heavily involved in the passing game, and he topped 94 yards on the ground just twice all of last season, with both of those games coming against the Cowboys. In fact, 28.7 percent of his fantasy points in 2020 were against the Cowboys. I can certainly see Gibson finishing higher than my ranking, but those above him have either (a) a more consistent track record, or (b) less question marks. He scored a touchdown once every 15.5 carries last year, a number that's surely to go up. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gibson averaged 13.2 fantasy points per game in his rookie year and he should have a lot of upside in his second year if Washington ups his usage in his second year. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
More positive game-scripts & TD opportunities, plus Scott Turner could just decide to give Gibson the full CMac bellcow treatment he so deserves. -- BUT this latest toe news is aggravating.
