After a slow start to the year, Washington Football Team running back Antonio Gibson has really started to turn it on. And now that his backfield mate J.D. McKissic has been ruled out of Week 14, Gibson should continue rolling on Sunday.

J.D. McKissic Injury

McKissic has been dealing with a concussion, and he wasn't able to clear protocols in time. He's a good bet to suit up next week against the Philadelphia Eagles, though.

Gibson has been on fire over the past four games, averaging 27.3 touches for 107.5 yards per game with 3 touchdowns during that span. With McKissic out of the lineup, we should see Gibson start to get a few more looks in the passing game.

The second-year back has turned 13 targets into 12 receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown over his last two. He's likely to see around 30 touches against the Dallas Cowboys, putting him in the RB1 conversation on Sunday.

Gibson ranks fourth among all running backs in The Duel's Week 14 PPR fantasy football rankings.
