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?Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.

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. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.
