Antonio Gibson totals 146 yards in win

RB Antonio Gibson carried the ball 29 times for 111 yards while catching seven passes for 35 yards in the Washington Football Teams win against the Seahawks on Monday night. Gibson came through in a big way for his fantasy managers. He did see J.D. McKissic score two touchdowns, but Gibson was more involved during the game. Seemingly healthy now, Gibson could be even more involved in the passing game since McKissic went down with an injury. He will be a borderline RB1 against the Raiders.

Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Shares load in Sunday's loss

Gibson carried the ball eight times for 34 yards and caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Broncos. His 11 touches exactly matched both J.D. McKissic (three carries, eight catches) and rookie Jaret Patterson (11 carries), with McKissic significantly out-producing both his backfield mates. While Gibson was cleared off the injury report prior to Sunday's game, Washington's treatment of the second-year back was a clear sign he isn't 100 percent, but he'll get some extra time to heal up during a Week 9 bye.

Immediate fantasy football takeaways from NFL Week 12 Monday Night Football

The Washington Football Team defeated the Seattle Seahawks 17-15 to finish off Week 12 on Monday Night Football. Washington had both Logan Thomas and Curtis Samuel returning from injury, which helped the Football Team put together multiple double-digit play drives that led to scores. Seattle's offense struggled all evening outside of the last minutes of the game and two long passes to Tyler Lockett. D.K. Metcalf didn't catch a pass for the first 59 minutes of the game, which highlighted the Seahawks' deficiencies on offense.

Hail or Fail: Washington dominated time of possession like it hadn’t since 1984

A look at the good (Hail!) and bad (Fail!) from the Washington Football Team’s 17-15 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. With drives of nine, 10, 11, 15 and 16 plays, Washington dominated time of possession Monday as it rarely has before. Behind a career-high 29 carries for 111 yards by running back Antonio Gibson and a few clutch third-down conversions, Washington’s offense was on the field for 41 minutes 40 seconds. According to Pro Football Reference, that’s the franchise’s most time of possession in a game that didn’t go to overtime since Sept. 23, 1984, when it held the ball for 43:12 in a 26-10 win over the New England Patriots.
