Antonio Gibson (COVID) activated for Football Team

The Washington Football Team activated running back Antonio Gibson off the COVID-19 list.

What It Means:

Gibson missed one game while on the COVID list and Jaret Patterson filled in as Washington's starting running back. Patterson will presumably return to a backup role in Week 18 versus the New York Giants while Gibson reclaims the starting role to wrap up the season. The Giants are starting Jake Fromm, so the Football Team should actually find themselves in a positive game script.

numberFire's models project Gibson for 20.7 touches and 14.5 FanDuel points, and he is the RB9 in our Week 18 fantasy rankings. The Giants are allowing the eighth-most FanDuel points per game to opposing running backs this season.
