The positive gamescript played right into Gibson's role last week, as he was able to accumulate 16 carries that amounted to 94 yards and a touchdown. The downside is that they felt the need to give Peyton Barber eight carries. To this point, Washington has hesitated to give Gibson the workload that fantasy managers crave. He's topped 13 carries just twice all season, though it's important to note that both those games came over their last four games. In Alex Smith's three starts, McKissic has totaled 17 carries and 33 targets, which is more than enough opportunity to be in the fantasy conversation every week. For those keeping track at home, that's a 29.5 percent target share. This should be interesting because the Cowboys have faced a running back target on a league-low 14.0 percent of pass attempts. They're also one of just four teams who've yet to allow a receiving touchdown to a running back. Even when targeted, they've allowed a league-low 4.29 yards per target. In fact, running backs have averaged just 5.2 PPR points per game through the air against the Cowboys, which is easily the lowest mark in the league. Meanwhile, they've faced a massive 26.6 carries per game (2nd in NFL), which bodes well for Gibson's role. That's happened because teams have chosen a run play on 47.8 percent of plays against them, which ranks as the second-highest rate in the league. Gibson had a career day in their first meeting, racking up 20 carries, 128 yards, and a touchdown. He's one of seven running backs who've finished with 70-plus yards on the ground alone against the Cowboys. There have also been three running backs who've scored multiple rushing touchdowns against them. The downside is that Gibson is a road underdog whose team is projected for just 21.5 points, but you have to keep him rolling as a mid-to-high-end RB2 in this matchup. McKissic's matchup is a bit tougher, though it's extremely hard to pass on his role with Smith under center. He's in the low-end RB3 conversation, particularly in PPR formats.The Eagles have now "officially" signed Jordan Howard to the practice squad, so you have to expect they'll activate him for this game after Doug Pederson said they want a committee approach. It wasn't too much of a timeshare last week, as Sanders totaled 21 opportunities to just eight of them for Scott, so faith in Sanders is still alive. But again, this is your reminder that in the nine games both Howard and Sanders were active last year, Howard totaled 119 carries and 14 targets (14.8 opportunities per game) while Sanders received 76 carries and 27 targets (11.4 opportunities per game). While I don't expect that to happen again, there's a reason they signed Howard. The Seahawks have allowed a ridiculous 114.4 PPR points per game to their opponents. That's including the quarterback, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. Unfortunately, running backs have accounted for only 27.6 percent of that production, but that number has been on the rise as of late. They've allowed a rushing touchdown once every 18.5 carries, which is the second-most often, behind only the Raiders. But again, touchdowns are volatile, and the 3.66 yards per carry they've allowed is one of the lowest marks in the league. It also hurts to know that teams have chosen to run the ball just 34.8 percent of the time, which is the lowest percentage in the league. Just one running back has been able to accumulate more than 65 yards on the ground against them this season. The good news for B.T. Sanders and Scott is that they're utilized in the passing game because the Seahawks have allowed 6.5 receptions and 49.6 receiving yards per game to running backs, which are both near the top of the league. Sanders should be considered a high-end RB2 if Howard is left on the practice squad due to his target share. Scott is nothing more than a lackluster RB4.

The Cowboys are 19th against fantasy back, McKissic has flex value due to his targets in the passing game.

McKissic wasn't needed as much last week, but he still didn't hurt fantasy managers that plugged him into their starting lineups. The Cowboys should keep this game competitive, which means that McKissic could be featured more heavily in the receiving game. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 again this week in a great matchup.
