While Gibson didn't put up dominant numbers from a fantasy perspective, it's extremely encouraging to see that he logged 23 total touches against the Chargers. The Los Angeles run defense didn't exactly figure to be an easy matchup either, so fantasy managers shouldn't have been expecting a blow-up performance. He was still featured in this offense though and he should be heavily relied upon again this week with Heinecke in at QB. Additionally, the usage of JD McKissic and Jaret Patterson - 3 total touches - is extremely encouraging for Gibson's managers. Gibson has a tougher matchup against the Giants on paper, but they just allowed Melvin Gordon to average 9.2 YPC on them. Gibson should see north of 20 touches again this week and he deserves to be viewed as a top-12 RB again in week two. Otherwise, McKissic and Patterson can be dropped in every redraft league unless you're holding onto them as Gibson's insurance policy.
