Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. had nine carries for 25 yards and a lost fumble along with three receptions for 10 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Robinson once again operated as the lead rusher for Washington in Week 18. Unfortunately, the Commanders fell behind quickly and didn't have a game script that favored the run game. However, Robinson did save his day with a touchdown reception early in the second quarter, Washington's only touchdown of the game. With the offseason ahead, the hope is that the Commanders can help their weapons by creating a better environment for offensive success than the one seen this year.

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs rushed nine times for 74 yards and caught four passes for 40 yards in the NFC Divisional Round win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gibbs delivered a 31-yard rushing touchdown early in the fourth quarter to help the Lions pull away in the 31-23 victory. The rookie remains a threat to score a touchdown or rip off a chunk play on every snap, so he remains a DFS next week despite a tough matchup with the talented San Francisco 49ers' defensive front.
