Last week in this article, I wrote "Gibson is an upside RB4 who should continue to see his role grow." Well, after just one week, he saw his snaps skyrocket. He played just 18 snaps in the opener but watched that number grow to 43 snaps in Week 2, while Barber went from 29 offensive snaps to just one last week. Now, McKissic is clearly going to be a thorn in Gibson's side, as he's been consistent in his snaps and has totaled 16 opportunities through two weeks, but he's only going to lose momentum as the season goes on. The Browns run defense has played much better than anyone anticipated given their linebacking unit, as they've allowed just 2.97 yards per carry over the first two weeks to backfields much more talented than this one. The Ravens and Bengals running backs combined for just 38 carries in the two games combined, and no running back has rushed for more than 46 yards. With Gibson only seeing one target in a game they trailed throughout, he's still not getting enough opportunities to play as anything more than an RB3 but we're getting closer. McKissic is never someone you're going to feel comfortable playing, so why roster him? And Barber, well, we've seen enough, right?We knew he was questionable for last week's game and that he had a tough matchup, but one catch for four yards in a game they scored 34 points? Yikes. I'm old enough to remember when I thought the Raiders would manufacture touches for Ruggs after spending the No. 12 overall pick on him. Insert shrug emoji. He may have been playing through his injury, but it's all relevant to fantasy owners. The matchup in Week 3 doesn't get much better, as the Patriots secondary has been one of the worst to attack with wide receivers since the start of the 2018 season. In 2018, they allowed just 1.61 PPR points per target, which ranked as the seventh-lowest mark. In 2019, they allowed just 1.21 PPR points per target, easily the best in the NFL. You can look at see them allowing 2.31 PPR points through two games and use that as a reason to doubt them, but it's a small sample size, and Russell Wilson did a number on them. The Dolphins didn't have a receiver over 47 yards in Week 1. In a matchup like this, I'm looking for reasons to sit Ruggs, especially on a short week. He's an ultra-risky WR4/5 option who should have better days ahead with how this offense is moving.

Gibson wasn't able to get much done in week one, but he bounced back in week two with his increased touches. Gibson was effective on the ground and he was able to find the end zone as well. Moving forward, Gibson should see the majority of the carries, but he also has room to improve from a fantasy perspective with more involvement in the receiving game. Gibson's an excellent pass-catcher and Washington should begin to utilize him more in this fashion as the season progresses. This week, Gibson's a high-end RB3 based on volume, but the matchup isn't exactly exciting with the Browns actually having a solid run defense.Ruggs showed his talent and speed in his first week in the NFL, but he simply didn't see enough opportunity this past game to be a reliable fantasy option. This is another tough matchup for him and Carr simply didn't target the wide receivers enough last game to instill confidence plugging Ruggs into your starting lineup moving forward. He's a WR4 at best this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Browns are 7th against fantasy running backs, Gibson has established a nice role early in the season, but he is more of a flex option in a tough matchup.
