FantasyPros
Gibby followed up a solid Week 1 with a disappointing Week 2, and things don't get any easier against Buffalo this week. With Washington trailing against the Giants last week, we saw more of J.D. McKissic, and while Gibson is the unquestioned lead back, JDM is certainly a thorn in his side for fantasy purposes. Buffalo's defense has been notoriously stingy thus far, so it will be tough to trust Gibson as more than the RB15 in this unfriendly spot."I should've quit you. Long time ago." I can't help hearing Robert Plant's voice echoing in my head when I think of CEH. He's got so much working against him - a lack of touchdowns, just three targets through two games. But then, I remember the positives. He plays for the league's best offense, and he's the clear RB1 on the team. Still, early returns are bleak, and this is a make-or-break week for Edwards-Helaire. If he doesn't get it done against the Chargers, I might really have to quit him for good and relegate him to the bench indefinitely.
Kyle Yates

While Antonio Gibson watched from the sideline as McKissic scored a rushing touchdown last week in the two-minute drill right before the half, he now has 38 total touches through the first two weeks. The usage of McKissic is concerning, but there's the potential that Ron Rivera was relying on him because of Gibson missing time in practice early on last week combined with the fact that they played on Thursday. Regardless, there's no reason to panic on Gibson. He's averaging 4.8 YPC on the season and he's still getting the majority of the touches. Better days are ahead for the second-year player. He can be viewed as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 this week.Have we finally reached the end of the road for hope that Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be a RB1 for fantasy football? CEH is seeing a respectable amount of work and we know that the offense he's in could lead to tremendous production for fantasy lineups, but it seems highly unlikely that we're ever going to see Edwards-Helaire be given the most valuable opportunities that translate to top-tier fantasy production. Through two weeks, CEH has a mere three targets despite being one of the best pass-catching RBs in the league. Additionally, fantasy managers watched in a panic on Sunday Night Football as Darrel Williams got the goal-line carry over CEH, which means that he's unlikely to ever see the rushing TD production we hoped to see when he entered the NFL and was drafted to the Chiefs in the first round. He will still be a very valuable RB2 moving forward, but unless we see Edwards-Helaire break away a long touchdown run or take one of his few targets to the house, he's unlikely to ever break the top-12. He can be viewed as a mid-range/low-end RB2 this week against the Chargers.

In Week 1, McKissic was a nonfactor, logging one carry and one target. He was much more involved in Week 2, catching 5 of 6 targets for 83 yards and rushing four times for 10 yards and a touchdown. Washington used the hurry-up offense at the end of the first half and again at the end of the game, which kept McKissic on the field and Gibson on the bench (much to the chagrin of Gibson investors). After producing 108 yards from scrimmage in Week 1, Gibson was held to 73 yards in Week 2. Not a total disaster, but he'll have better days. McKissic's usage, meanwhile, is going to be a wild card throughout the season. We can't predict when and how often the Football Team will run a 2-minute offense. Washington head coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner seem to recognize that putting the ball in Gibson's hands is a +EV move, so McKissic isn't likely to match the 80 receptions he had last season. The Buffalo defense the two Washington backs will face Sunday stymied Steelers rookie Najee Harris in Week 1 and then completely took away the Miami running game in a Week 2 blowout. Consider Gibson a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 this week. His DraftKings price of $5,900 is very reasonable, and Gibson is talented enough to be a worthwhile play despite the daunting matchup.CEH is everyone's favorite scapegoat this week after coughing up a fumble at the Ravens' 34-yard line with 1:25 left in regulation to deprive the Chiefs of a chance for a game-winning field goal. We're now 15 games into Edwards-Helaire's career, and the results have been underwhelming. He's averaged 59.5 rushing yards per game and has scored five career touchdowns. Edwards-Helaire is averaging 3.3 yards per carry through the first two games of 2021, and as Josh Larky of PlayerProfiler.com notes, CEH has faced light fronts (six or fewer defenders in the box) on 63% of his carries this year. Yikes. Could this become a committee soon? Darrel Williams had a short TD run last week, and third-stringer Jerrick McKinnon has been getting snaps, too. Edwards-Helaire will try to turn thigs around against a Chargers run defense that gave up 90 rushing yards to Antonio Gibson in Week 1, then yielded 180 rushing yards and two TD runs to the Ezekiel Elliott/Tony Pollard combination in Week 2.

The Bills are 3rd against fantasy running backs, but Gibson should be fresh coming off 10-days rest and he should be in the RB1 mix on the road this week.CEH has only 89 yards and he is averaging only 3.3 yards per carry through two games. He has a matchup against a Chargers D that was torched by Cowboys running backs last week. CEH is still only a RB2 that should be doing more on the best offense in the NFL.
