Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Do you know how many touches the Washington backfield averaged last year? 24.4 touches per game. Trying to project how the timeshare in Washington is going to work out might be a waste of time, as there's not enough volume for any of them to be consistent. Can that change under a new offensive coordinator? Sure, but it's hard to say that'll happen without any actual game reps together. Teams like Washington are behind the 8-ball with the shortened offseason and non-existent preseason games. Their offensive line got worse when they traded away Trent Williams, as they're likely to lean on fourth-round rookie Saahdiq Charles at left tackle. That's... not great. Fortunately, the Eagles are not a team to attack with running backs. They ranked No. 7 against fantasy running backs last year and were No. 6 against them in 2018. They added interior lineman Javon Hargrave to the mix this offseason, which should only help matters. Gibson is a wild card where it wouldn't shock me if he saw as little as five touches or as many as 15 touches, though I'd lean on the cautious side considering he saw less than 80 touches during his entire college career. The Eagles have been a very good unit against the run, and though Gibson is somewhat a hybrid running back/wide receiver, the Eagles allowed just 1.33 PPR points per target last year, which ranked as the fifth-lowest mark in the league. Gibson is a risk/reward RB3, but I'd play safer options until we know his role on this offense. He was technically listed behind McKissic on the depth chart, though that may mean nothing. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The Washington Football Team listed J.D. McKissic as their starting running back for Week 1, a curious move considering the draft capital they invested in Gibson and the player's notable talent and upside. Gibson should still see the bulk of the work, especially in the passing game, but the Eagles gave up the 7th-fewest fantasy points to RBs last year. Until we know more about how the team plans to use him, I'm treating Gibson as an RB3/flex option with upside. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gibson's fantasy stock skyrocketed after the release of AP and it will now be put to the test right away against a stout Eagles DST. Gibson should see 12-15 touches in this matchup and he has the explosiveness to make them count. However, it's going to be hard to trust him as a RB2 this week. He's more of a RB3/FLEX play with upside.
