Jahmyr Gibbs Week 3 Outlook - Falcons at Lions

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sat, Sep 23rd 2023, 3:05am EDT

Gibbs played 48% of the snaps last week with 14 touches and 56 total yards. My thoughts for everyone upset with his early season usage...please understand it when I say that you are missing the boat here if you're upset. Last week, Gibbs saw a 25.7% Target share. He got nine targets. NINE! Was the result amazing? No. Is his usage the problem? Nope. Talent is not the problem. Usage is not the problem. Gibbs' best days are ahead of him. He's 11th in yards after contact per attempt and tenth in elusive rating. Gibbs has been the superb receiving talent that we thought he was entering this season, as he ranks 11th in receiving grade and fourth in YPRR. Gibbs is set up well to have a breakout performance this week. Atlanta has allowed the 11th-highest explosive run rate, has the tenth-worst stuff rate, and the 11th-worst yards after contact per attempt. Week 3 Positional Value: Borderline RB1
