The Facts: Ron Rivera said that Gibson has bounced back from his turf toe from last season. The coach said it hampered Gibson a little in OTAs, but he's looked good so far in training camp.
Diehards Line: In case you missed it, RBs coach Randy Jordan referred to Gibson and his potential as "clay" during training camp, and if that's the case, his finished product is available to be further molded after an impressive 11-TD rookie season. Had Gibson not been forced to miss two games with the same turf toe injury that remained an issue up to this point, he may have become Washington's first 1,000-yard rusher since Adrian Peterson in 2018. Assuming a continued role as Washington's featured back and a staple of their offense heading into the 2021 season, Gibson remains a solid RB2 candidate for fantasy managers.
