Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The Washington Football Team recently cut Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson, the top two running backs on their depth chart. Antonio Gibson is left as the RB1 on the team, despite Washington depth charts showing J.D. McKissic as the top guy. Gibson has an electric skillset and is capable of playing all three downs. I was thrilled about him as a sleeper when Peterson and Guice were still with the team - now, his ADP has spiked, but he can still be a value in the middle rounds. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gibson only saw 77 total touches in college due to playing behind guys like Tony Pollard and Darrell Henderson at Memphis. However, he made every touch count with his explosiveness and top-end speed. Gibson's electric with the ball in his hands and was used all over the formation in college, which I expect for that to continue in Washington. This coaching staff clearly has a plan for him with where they selected him in the Draft and I expect Gibson's ADP to rise significantly in the next few weeks as we start to hear more about how he'll be utilized in the offense.Johnson has seen his fantasy stock take a huge hit since April. The Lions have now added AP and D'Andre Swift to this backfield, which screams that they plan on utilizing a full-on committee approach. It's hard to see how Johnson is fantasy relevant at any point this season, unless D'Andre Swift were to miss the first couple games of the season. This may just be a backfield that you want to avoid altogether.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Gibson looked to have plenty of roadblocks to fantasy-relevance, but with both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson being released, his path is far more clear. He isn't going to be a workhorse back - he only had a handful of carries in college and is dangerous as a receiver. But he should see plenty of touches overall and be worthy of being a Flex play in most leagues.Poor Johnson cannot catch a break. After battling injuries throughout his young career, the Lions drafted D'Andre Swift this offseason, which put Johnson as only borderline relevant in fantasy circles. With Swift battling injury as the Lions approached the season, however, it looked like Johnson would at least have an impact role early in the year, with the chance to carve out a larger role even when Swift was healthy. But now, with the Lions signing Adrian Peterson, Johnson again has impediments to fantasy-relevance. Johnson is talented and could succeed in the right situation, but given all the roadblocks in front of him, he's best left as a bench stash in deeper leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were a lot of people out there who liked Gibson as a sleeper, though I can't get on board now that he's going in the mid rounds. He plays for what might be the lowest-scoring offense in the league, and is still on a depth chart littered with at least three other running backs. Sure, he's going to be used in some sort of hybrid way, but do we really expect two Washington wide receivers to be consistent enough to rely on? He may be an electric player but his offense isn't. I'd rather take a player tied to an exciting offense.We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 8-10 touches per game, especially now that Adrian Peterson's in the mix.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
 With Johnson having missed 14 of 32 games with multiple knee injuries over his two NFL seasons, he's a poor bet to get a heavy workload in 2020. Detroit's preference to rotate backs will likely result in Johnson being part of a committee in 2020.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Washington cut Adrian Peterson, so Gibson is going to get plenty of opportunities from Day 1. Up!

At first, the Antonio Gibson hype seemed out of control, but I've warmed up him since. Washington has very little depth at wide receiver behind McLaurin, which means Gibson could see volume in a variety of ways. Despite a lack of rushing volume in college, Gibson should be able to handle some wear. He was in the 68th percentile in BMI (body mass index) among his class in 2020, according to PlayerProfiler. If you want to get titillated, just look at Gibson's Speed Score (99th percentile). 
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
All aboard the hype train. One of my favorite selections if his ADP holds, but don't expect dynamite numbers right away 
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Elite athlete at the RB position. Played a bit of WR in college which should allow him to be used a receiver. Only had 77 touches in college so it's a concern that he can be a workhorse despite his workhorse frame of 228 lbs. Lots of upside here if he can get 12-15 touches a game.Still only 23 years old and coming of an inefficient season. Was wildly efficient as a 21 y/o rookie. A good player who has three down potential, but the biggest obstacle is stud RB prospect and 35th overall pick D'Andre Swift who should end up becoming the lead guy here.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Now that Derrius Guice is no longer with the team, Gibson should slide into the RB2 role behind Adrion Peterson. That bodes well for Gibson as Peterson continues to age and will not factor into the passing game. Gibson's real value lies in PPR scoring but he has legitmate upsides in all formats.When Kerryon Johnson is on the field, he's dynamic and for the most part fantasy gold. Unfortunately, he's rarely on the field due to injuries. Now the Lions spent a 2nd round pick D'Andre Swift who figures to get a hefty amount of work as well. I'd avoid Johnson this year and target the rookie Swift
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Antonio Gibson is stepping into an intriguing opportunity in Washington. While there's a lot of players on the depth chart, no role is clearly assigned at this stage so he has a chance at the vacant pass-catching role and a standard RB role as well. I think it's most likely he has a crack at the Chris Thompson role but will struggle initially with pass protection so it's hard to expect a lot from him in 2020. It's also a chance after the Kelvin Harmon injury he shifts outside but I don't believe that's the most likely outcome. He does have huge upside if things fall perfectly for him though.Kerryon Johnson came into 2019 with a massive amount of hype and disappointed a lot of fantasy owners. With just one game over 50 yards rushing, he injured himself in Week 7 and only returned in the last couple of weeks to do very little. He now shares the backfield with the far-more-talented D'Andre Swift and will likely fall into a backup role alongside Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson and a dozen other Lions RB disappointments by the halfway point of the season. He's a hard pass for me.

Hugely explosive playmaker lands on a team desperate for juice. Will be used all over like a rookie-year Tyreek Hill.Huge Draft Day faller. Swift is better, and KJ is nothing more than a complement at this point.

 If he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
