Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington Commanders

Brian Robinson exited Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins early due to a hamstring injury. That opened up work for Gibson, and he finished with 72 total yards (35 rushing) on 14 touches (10 carries). He has at least four targets in each of his last five games, with at least 55 total yards in three of his last four. He has double-digit PPR points in three of his last four as well.

Washington has a bye in Week 14, which may allow Robinson to get healthy. But if not, Gibson would have the lead role against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15. Even without the lead role, in Week 15 and beyond, Gibson has been an asset in PPR leagues lately.

Now is a time to stash potentially useful players on a fantasy bench, if you can. Gibson is in that wheelhouse this week, since having a bye will push him off the radar of many managers. He is definitely more appealing in PPR formats, but he has been productive enough overall to be on the radar as a bench stash in standard formats too.
