Washington RB Antonio Gibson: Second-Year Surprises?

Locked On Washington Football Team: Introducing New Director of Alumni Relations Tim Hightower and Talkin' Gibson

Antonio Gibson was one of the biggest surprises for not just the Washington Football Team, but the NFL, in 2020.

The WFT selected the running back out of Memphis with their third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Gibson started off the year as RB1 for the team and scored a touchdown in Weeks 2, 3 and 4, putting him on the map for national fans.

Gibson cooled off his touchdown volume until November and that's when Gibson became one of the best backs in the game. From Weeks 7-11, Gibson ran for 402 yards and eight touchdowns. By the end of the season, Gibson's 11 rushing touchdowns ranked him in a tie for 6th among all running backs in the league.
