Week 4 PPR Rankings
Antonio Gibson Note

After playing 43 snaps in the Week 2 game against the Cardinals, Gibson fell back down the ladder last week and finished with just 25 snaps played, which paled in comparison to J.D. McKissic who played 34 snaps. But most importantly, in a game like this where they're expected to fall behind early, it plays more into McKissic's role, as he's played 59 pass snaps to this point while Gibson has played just 44 of them. That's not to say it's static and cannot change, but it's reflected in their targets as well, as McKissic has nine to Gibson's seven. When playing against a team like the Ravens, volume is extremely important, as they've allowed the sixth-fewest points per opportunity to running backs through three weeks. It's not to say you can't run the ball on them - they're allowing 4.20 yards per carry - but the opportunity to do so consistently is tough. They've only faced 25.0 running back touches per game, so when you start splitting those up, there are problems playing any of these backs confidently. Knowing they've allowed no touchdowns to running backs through three games, it's not even wise to search for one of those. Gibson is just a low-upside, low-end RB3 this week.
